Learn More About This Product

Swivel Arm Offers 360° Motion for Active Sleepers

Designed to prevent hose interference during sleep, the steel arm of the HoseBuddy swivels in a 360 degree motion to allow for optimum movement throughout the night. 

Easy Installation and Functional for Daily Use

Once installed, place the HoseBuddy between the mattress and the box spring. To install the fully adjustable HoseBuddy, follow these steps:

  1. Insert the stand under the mattress
  2. Attach the hose to the holder
  3. Adjust the height between 34 and 37 inches

Included Headboard Protector Safeguards Against Furniture Damage

To help safeguard your furniture, the HoseBuddy now comes with a 4" inch Foam Headboard Protector. Use this to guard against damaging your bed's headboard. If using a very tall mattress, consider the HoseBuddy Plus Tangle Free CPAP Hose Suspension System as it extends to 45” tall.

Utility Tips

Once the HoseBuddy pieces are installed, place the device between the mattress and the box spring. The HoseBuddy system will require the support of the mattress and box spring to keep the unit firmly fastened and functional.

Use with Adjustable Beds

Because this product is used by being secured between a mattress and box spring, extreme care should be taken when using with an adjustable bed. If the mattress is adjusted, it could result in damage to CPAP equipment if it falls. CPAP.com is not responsible for any damage to CPAP equipment in this situation.

What is the difference between the original HoseBuddy and the new Travel HoseBuddy?

The Travel HoseBuddy is constructed from thinner metal, adjusts to 30 inches, weighs 1.6lbs, and comes with Travel Case. The Original HoseBuddy weighs 4.5lbs, raises to 33 inches and does not come with a Travel Case. The Original HoseBuddy also comes with a hook to hang your mask and the Travel HoseBuddy does not.

This device works best fitted directly above your head, but may also be used at the very top side of the bed to avoid contact with a headboard.

The HoseBuddy CPAP Hose Holder can also be used with oxygen units.

Are all CPAP hoses the same?
In years gone by, the answer to this question would have been "yes", but today not all hoses are the same and some machines use different hose types. All CPAP hoses / tubings serve the same function: directing the air stream from the machine to the mask.

Historically, a standard CPAP hose is six feet long, has an internal diameter of 19mm and a connector cuff with an internal diameter of 22mm. Today some hoses are 6 feet long, others are 4 foot long, 8 foot long and 10 foot long. Some hoses have an internal diameter of 19mm (standard) and others have an internal diameter of 15mm (thin or slim style). To use a slim 15mm hose, the machine must have a menu option setting to accept the narrower diameter of a 15mm hose and still deliver the prescribed pressure to the mask to ensure effective therapy.

All hoses have a 22mm connection cuff and fit on all CPAP masks. The connection ports on all CPAP, APAP and BiLevel machines, humidifiers, and masks are a standard size, so a standard CPAP hose will fit on all. Some of the very small machines use a hose adapter between the machine and the 22mm cuff of the hose.

Some manufacturers offer a heated hose option designed to work only with their machines. To read more about heated hoses see the "What is a heated CPAP hose?" article included in this FAQ section.

A few auto-titrating CPAPs and BiLevels require a pressure line sensor to detect breathing patterns and pressure needs. The sensor may be in the form of an adapter with narrow tubing attached or the narrow tubing is threaded inside the six foot hose. In both cases, one end of the narrow tubing is plugged into the machine. Those machines will not operate without the pressure line sensor.
What is a heated CPAP hose?

A heated CPAP hose contains copper coils embedded in, or wrapped around, the hose. These coils are gently heated to conduct a constant temperature throughout the length of the hose. This enhances the comfort of the therapy and reduces or eliminates rainout caused by the water condensing as it travels through the hose to the mask.


Heated hoses are more expensive alternatives to cloth tubing insulation, but they prevent rainout in nearly all cases. The Hybernite Rainout Control System is a stand alone option that can be used with any machine to prevent rainout and increase delivered humidification.

Hybernite Rainout Control System


Some manufacturers have developed heated hoses to work specifically with select machines in their product lines. The ClimateLineAir™ Heated Tube for AirSense™ 10 and AirCurve™ 10 Machines is an example of a heated hose used by the AirSense™ 10 and AirCurve™ 10 Machines.

What is a hose cover?
A hose cover is placed over the hose in order to insulate the hose and to make the hose more comfortable. The simplest and most cost effective way to insulate a CPAP hose is to wrap it in an insulating fabric. This enables the hose to remain flexible and adds little weight.

Companies such as Snugglehose provide a cost effective tubing insulation available in several colors and styles. Not only will the covers reduce or eliminate rainout, they also provide a more personal and less institutionalized appearance. An example of a Snugglehose is shown below.

What is rainout?
Rainout is the accumulation of water in a CPAP tube due to warm moist air cooling on its way from your CPAP machine to your CPAP mask.

Solutions to rainout include raising the temperature of your bedroom, insulating your tubing with a Snugglehose, or purchasing a CPAP machine with an integrated heated hose.
How do I clean a CPAP hose?

Your CPAP hose will last longer if it is detached every morning and hung to air dry.


Drying the hose each morning will also prevent bacteria from growing in the damp interior and help reduce the possibility of colds and other health issues. Remember, what is in the hose goes into the airway.


If you are not drying the hose daily, then be sure to replace the hose very frequently as negative health issues will result!

Hose care tips:

  • Remove the hose by gripping the end or cuff, not the hose itself
  • Hang the hose to dry after each use
  • Wash hose weekly to avoid residue and maintain health
  • Protect the hose from curious pets


Hose care tools:

How often should I replace my CPAP hose?
CPAP hoses can last a long time, sometimes up to a year if taken care of properly.

Signs of wear include dry, cracked places on the inside lining or on the rubber ends; "stretch marks" near the rubber ends; mineral deposits or mold from water left inside the hose; or a visible puncture or tear in the material.

How do I avoid getting tangled in CPAP hoses?

There are a few ways to keep from getting tangled up in your CPAP tubing. Try running your CPAP hose behind the headboard of your bed. Also, there are several types of suspension systems we carry here at CPAP.com. You can see the different types of Hose Management Systems under our Comfort & Cleaning section. One example is the HoseBuddy Tangle Free CPAP Hose Suspension System:

Perfect!!

Verified purchase | Apr. 28, 2022 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
This works better than I ever thought it would. Once the hose is attached, you can forget about it for the rest of the night. It follows your movements during the night without you having to adjust it.

Verified purchase | Mar. 21, 2021 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
This is an upgrade to a similar one I purchased before. The top swivels which is more accommodating. It can be placed anywhere on the bed between the mattress and box spring. It metal itself is also more sturdy.

Sturdy Hose Holder

Verified purchase | Dec. 02, 2020 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
After my first night with CPAP I quickly realized I had to have a solution to me hugging the hose all night. I found several but glad I ordered this one in particular. It is very sturdy and keeps the hose off me. I can adjust how much the hose comes down toward me by keeping it loosely velcroed. It also allows me to keep the hose in a dipped position behind bed so I don't get water in my mask(rainout). I also works well with a raised platform bed, I keep the head raised somewhat and was afraid it might not fit under mattress, but it does.

Solid investment

Verified purchase | Nov. 14, 2020 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
This is the 2nd of these that I have purchased. I bought the first for myself, this one for a member of my family. Both of us agree that product works very well at improving overall quality and comfort of sleep by helping us avoid getting tangled up in our hoses, a must for anyone who rolls over or tosses/turns while sleeping. I looked at a lot of similar products and this one is worth the money. You pay a little more but it is solid construction and the metal is thick and sturdy. This thing is built to last. It is easy to assemble and install, just put it under your mattress. I do recommend leaving the velcro straps a little loose so you can slide the hose as needed.
