Designed to Enhance Your Comfort and Improve Your Compliance
The hose cover, which is made for eight-foot long tubes, is made with a soft polyester fleece that fits over the hose and secures with Velcro. The exterior of the cover is designed to enhance your comfort and improve compliance by reducing the medical appearance of your CPAP hose.
This product does not include the hose. It is the hose cover only.
The SnuggleHose Cover Blue (For 8 Foot Hose) can be machine washed in cold water on a gentle cycle and machine dried on low heat. To prevent attaching or wrapping around other clothes, it is recommended to fasten all velcro fasteners or place in a delicates bag.Alternatively the SnuggleHose Cover Blue (For 8 Foot Hose) can be hand washed in cool water and laid flat to dry.
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:
made the hose quiet when moving and did not wake me up. takes a litte work putting on but not too bad.
I run the hose under the blankets up to my nasal mask. No way do I want the plastic hose against me. Even though the hose is heated, it is still pretty chilly when you start. Not with the Snugglehose cover though. With a 6ft heated hose and the sleepweaver featherlite tube the 8ft is required.
I've always used these on every hose I ever bought. Makes the hose quiet and soft.
It is as it's described and pictured but it is so soft and makes my cpap hose less noticeable and more comfortable while sleeping and moving around! I recommend this product to all cpap users!
If you have a heated humidifier, you will want this to reduce the "rain" in the tube and mask in colder climates. Helps in the house and the RV in dry or humid climates. Does not eliminate the "raining" entirely.
I was having issues with condensation building up in the hose at night and since using this product I have had no more issues.
This took the place of my 6’ cover. It keeps condensation out of the hose as well as making it quieter when I move the hose in my sleep.
This is a great asset to anyone who uses a CPAP machine. The soft fleece keeps the hose from "raining" on me when I use it, because I keep the humidifier on high. It is very easy to set up - just put it over one end of the hose and work it toward the other end. The instructions say to use the cellophane wrapper over one end of the hose to help it slide through... a piece of the wrapper came off when I did this, and it was an adventure to find and fish it out. I love this Snugglehose.
Bought this cover to cover both the main (6') heated hose and the one foot long extension which was not heated and causing condensation in the mask. No cover was made for the short hose. The 8 foot sleeve covers both hoses with spare length to provide additional insulation and seems to be working well. Next winter will be the test, however, I do not expect problems.
It is a hose cover. It works well. Less rainout now.
really a good item, cut my water consumption in half. Glad I got the 8ft. I have the nuance by Philips and it has A 2ft hose on it. Still has some extra hose left. well pleased with this hose.
I have a Resmed Autosense 10 with 6 foot heated hose. I added a 2 foot plain hose extension. I recently bought a refurbished Devilbiss Intellipap Auto as backup, travel, camping unit because it easily runs on 12 volt battery. So I wanted same 8 foot hose but added the Snugglehose cover. Its seems a lot longer than 8 feet but really like the sewn in velcro cinch tabs at each end.I wish there were two more spaced equally along length too. Pretty nice hose cover.
