CPAP tubing can be heated or nonheated. Nonheated tubing or standard tubing is universal to all CPAP machines and masks. You can use a Resmed nonheated tubing with a Fisher and Paykel CPAP machine and a Philips mask.
Nonheated tubing comes in two diameters: 22mm and 15mm. The diameter difference is about the weight of the tube. The flex-fit ends are still universal to all CPAP machines and CPAP masks. CPAP tubing is all latex-free and the standard length is 6 feet. Try a tubing wrap!
Heated tubes are CPAP machine specific. Every CPAP machine has its own heated tubing. You cannot interchange heated tubing between machines but you can use them with any mask. The flex-fit end will work with all masks. Heated tubing eliminates hose rainout from high humidity settings.
CPAP tubing, whether heated or standard, needs to be washed weekly to stay on top of any bacteria growth. Always hang your tube to dry if any moisture is noted. Try the CPAP tubing brush!
Respshop carries many standard tubes of each diameter and different lengths. Respshop keeps the heated tubing for many different CPAPs in stock as well – even for machines that are no longer for sale such as tubing for S9 machines.
The Importance of CPAP Tubing, Wrap & Adapters
The CPAP tubing we carry is a standard length of 6 feet. You'll find lightweight and flexible tubing for CPAP machines, special heated CPAP tubing designed specifically for machines like the ResMed AirSense, and heavy-duty tubing with various length options. Some models can be used with CPAP, BiPAP, and APAP machines. Depending on the model, advanced features may include internal heated coils that eliminate hose rainout, support for high bi-level pressures, and wider tube capacity.
In addition to CPAP machine tubing, you'll also find tubing wrap that insulates the hose to make it more comfortable, as well as a variety of high-quality CPAP hose connectors and adapters.
