The 6 Foot CPAP Hose with Sensor Line for Puritan Bennett 418A, 420E, 420S, 425 and Knightstar 330 is a six foot hose with the sensor line installed. It is required for use with the GoodKnight 418A, 420S and 420E CPAP machines. It is also required for the GoodKnight 425 and KnightStar 330 BiLevel machines. This hose is not compatible with any other machine.
This is a 22mm diameter hose that is 72 inches and is not for use with machines that require a heated hose or a 15mm hose.
This hose is not required for the 420G and 420SP CPAPs, which do not require a sensor line. Those CPAP machines use a standard CPAP hose.
All CPAP.com brand hoses are smooth bore, meaning there are no ridges inside the hose for air pressure to resist against. The supportive molded plastic frame is located on the outside of the hose. This design provides consistent pressure delivery and ensures a quieter performing 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.
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!
