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:

Exactly as Advertised

The length is perfect for the basic hose that is given to you and gets the job done. Took a couple seconds to put on the hose and did not put on any extra weight on the hose.

Easy to put on. Not heavy on the hose.

Slips a little bit.

Pretty good

The hose cover is soft, quiet, and fits well enough. Only problem so far is that it's hard to thread the heated hose through the cover because it has a larger rubber attachment on one end.

Soft, quiet, and fits.

Difficult to thread heated hoses.

Works Great!

Verified purchase | Aug. 20, 2023 | Susan W. | Recommended
I will be using this as my primary machine. First night took some getting used to. Wasn’t sure what to expect. Second and third nights, I slept great, 8 hours. Wanted the small machine for travel. I read reviews about noise, but since this is my first machine, I don’t know any different. I’m comfortable humidity-wise. Very happy with the Air Mini.

Size, ease of set up.

Nice hose cover

Verified purchase | Jun. 03, 2023 | Paul S.
I like the hose cover, the material is good, but the elastic/ Velcro they use on the ends is junk. Cheapest stuff they could find to save a penny.
