The shade of the SnuggleHose may vary slightly from the color shown, but the product and its performance are not impacted.
Soft to the Touch and Helps Improve Sleep Therapy Compliance
The hose cover is made with a soft polyester fleece that fits over the hose and secures with Velcro. The exterior of the cover, on the other hand, improves compliance by helping reduce the appearance of medical equipment.
This product does not include a hose or any mask parts. It is the hose cover only.
The SnuggleHose Cover for Short Mask Tubes 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 dedicates bag.Alternatively the SnuggleHose Cover for Short Mask Tubes 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!

First time use of this product. Much more comfortable than without.
Good product and price
I first bought the six foot hose cover to keep the cold plastic off my face. I realized that... the plastic hose from the face mask was still uncovered and resting on my chin or cheek. This little cover completed the task. Highly recommend. more...
Excellent. The correct length, easy to get on, nicely soft, and helps avoid a cold nose if you are not... using a heated hose system. more...
If covering hose then mask also
I ordered this hose cover because it says it helps get rid of condensation on the mask, and I have... a horrible time with that. The cover works great! I have not had any condensation in my mask since putting this on the hose. However, it is about half an inch too short for my likes. I have made it work by tightening the velcro straps as tight as possible around the ends of the hose. This is well worth the money. more...
Solves the problem of rain out from my short hose. Hope to be able to purchase this product in a... multi pack in the future !!! more...
I have been very disappointed in this product.
I bought these for my daughter to use since she also is on a CPAP machine She just loves them...
Its a little long for my Opus tube. So you have to bunch it up on the short tube to... get it to fit. more...
Good for the price
