Heated CPAP Hoses & Tubing
Heated CPAP tubing hoses are designed to work with specific manufacturer makes and models. The heated tube system promotes humidity throughout the entire length of the hose unlike standard tubing that may lose humidity and cause dryness. Studies have shown that heated humidification use can result in the need for lower CPAP pressures. Many CPAP users can experience dryness of the mouth, as well as dryness of the throat and nasal passage. This discomfort often makes CPAP therapy difficult for many patients. Air delivered through CPAP machines can be up to 20% less humid than normal air. Heated CPAP tubing as well as CPAP humidifiers are often able to increase patient comfort and allow for better and more restful sleep. If you are experienced dryness of the mouth or other symptoms, we highly recommend heated CPAP tubing. For best hygiene practices it is recommended to clean often and replace every 3-6 months.
