PLEASE NOTE: This Hose Guide woks ONLY with the nasal pillow version of Breeze SleepGear. It will NOT work with the DreamSeal nasal cushion version of Breeze SleepGear.
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.
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.
Here are some heated hoses we carry:
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!

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:
The down side to Breeze nasal mask is that this part wears out quickly. Nice to get only what needs... to be replaced. Now I have fixed both of my nasal masks (one for back-up). Thank you. more...
I love this mask and the weak link is the hose guide. It does break. Since the Breeze is no... longer available, I bought two of these so hopefully I will always wear a breeze to sleep. GO THUNDER... !!! more...
Does not fit my current Breeze headgear which I purchased last year. The nose piece does not stay in... the track. I was able to modify it with twist ties to keep it in, but disappointed in the lack of compatibility. more...
what a nightmare with the plastic snapping and overall impractical design with small wood screws into plastic where failure was... inevitable. more...
I have used multiple different CPAP masks. So far, the nasal breeze seems to be the best fit for my... needs. Unfortunately, the comfort and ease come at a cost---namely, some of the components seem to break after a year or so of use. Fortunately, the parts are available, rather than having to buy the entire mask. more...
the mask is excellent, but every time I pack it to move somewhere, the front pieces tend to break. ... Good to be able to get parts. If you're not moving it, mask is excellent. more...
