AirSpiral Heated Breathing Tube for Fisher & Paykel myAirvo2
AirSpiral Heated Breathing Tubes produce up to 93% less condensation than the previous myAirvo tubing. This heated breathing tube is designed exclusively for use with the Fisher & Paykel myAIRVO 2 Humidified High Flow System. AirSpiral Tubing utilizes an advanced two-spiral design to help protect against condensation or "rain out" in the delivery system.
Cold drips in traditional heated tubes, caused by condensation in tubing and cannulas, have always been a big complaint for high-flow air and oxygen users. The warm humidified air in the breathing tube of humidification machines tends to create condensation in the tube if the room temperature is cooler.
The two elements of the AirSpiral tubes - an insulating to protect warmed air in the tube from temperature variations outside the tube, and a heating spiral to warm the air it passes through the tube, work together to solve cold drips and distracting sounds that are commonly seen with traditional heated tubes.

Why do you need a heated CPAP hose?
The main reason for a heated hose is to avoid moisture build-up in the CPAP tube.
If you use a fan at night or if your bed is near a window, sometimes the moisture from the humidifier can condense and pool in the hose before it gets to your airway.
When this happens, it can wake you up by creating a loud popping sound as the air blows past the water, and in some cases can cause what we refer to as "rain out" where the water starts to splash onto your face or pour into your nose.
The heated hose insulates the air from the cooler temperatures in your room to avoid this.
You can also adjust the heat in the hose for your comfort making this a great option for the standard hose!
