6 Foot Collapsible Travel CPAP Hose (19mm Diameter with 22mm Ends)
6 Foot Collapsible Travel CPAP Hose Overview
Is it difficult to pack the CPAP hose into a suitcase? Innotech's 6 Foot Collapsible Travel CPAP Hose (19mm Diameter with 22mm Ends) is a standard CPAP hose designed to compress down to 10.5 inches for travel. While the unique design is ideal for packing into a suitcase for travel, this standard 6 foot long 19mm non-heated hose with 22mm cuffs is for use at home as well. The tube is compatible with all CPAP, APAP, and BiPAP machines.
Uncoil Innotech's 6 Foot Collapsible Travel CPAP Hose (19mm Diameter with 22mm Ends) and attach it to the machine to receive CPAP therapy, as is done with a traditional hose. After use, quickly recoil it into a 10.5 inch tube and carry with ease. The caps which bookmark the coiled tube have a small, black strap on either end, making the hose easy to carry. With only two pieces, this tube uses a simple design to create a more travel friendly CPAP tube.

Durable for Travel
This travel friendly hose is made from durable, plastic material which holds firm against indentations and resists the friction of the triangular clips located on the interior rod as it collapses into a 10.5 inch tube.
The word Open and an arrow are embossed into one of the grey caps to indicate which direction the cap needs to be turned in order to open the hose. Once the cap has been turned, the tube will begin expanding. Gently pull the hose outward to open all coils. Once the hose is fully uncoiled, remove the other cap and the interior rod, and the hose is ready for use.
To collapse the hose, first grab the interior rod and place it at the base of the hose cuff. Begin gently pulling each coil of the triangular clips on the rod. Please Note: Keep a firm but soft grip on the material as it collapses, otherwise the hose will spring forward. Once the material is fully compact, place the other grey cap on the end of the unoccupied hose cuff. Turn the cap the opposite direction of that which opens the hose. Now, you are ready to travel with your hose!

This does help to recover suitcase space. I try to travel with just a carryon and back pack, this hose gives me back some space more...

I used this recently on a 10-day trip. It looks pretty flimsy so I took along a roll of tape in case I needed to do any middle-of-the-night repairs, but so far it has been holding up well with no holes or tears. It fits into my suitcase much better than a standard CPAP hose, and I'm very happy about that. For a little extra protection I slide it into an empty paper towel tube before packing it in my suitcase. more...

While too fragile for daily use at home, this is perfect for the road. Combined with a travel machine, I can now easily get everything in one carry on. more...

I got this for an upcoming trip to use with my Transcend. I have been testing it out before we leave so I can troubleshoot any problems. This thing is great! The hose is lightweight and quiet. Getting it on and off its rod storage thingy is easy peasy. I wish it were about 1 inch shorter so it would fit more easily into my Transcend travel bag, but that is minor compared to the difficulty of stuffing a full size hose into the bag. I love it. more...
