ThermoSmart Heated Tube for SleepStyle Series by Fisher & Paykel
The ThermoSmart Heated Breathing Tube by Fisher & Paykel is designed exclusively for the SleepStyle Auto and SleepStyle CPAP machines. This heated hose enhances your sleep therapy by minimizing condensation in the CPAP circuit, thereby optimizing comfort and ensuring consistent air pressure delivery throughout the night.
Lightweight and Flexible
The ThermoSmart Heated Tube is 20% lighter compared to its predecessor and its flexible design allows for easy handling and unrestricted movement during sleep. Unlike other bulkier hoses, the ThermoSmart Heated Tube is light enough not to drag down on smaller CPAP masks, which leads to mask leaks and ineffective therapy.
Featuring AirSpiral technology, the ThermoSmart Heated Tube uses insulated spiraled coils that heat up during use. These heated coils prevent heat loss as air travels from your SleepStyle device to your mask. As a result, condensation or "rainout" is reduced no matter what the conditions are around you.
How do I clean my ThermoSmart Heated Tube?
Hand wash the ThermoSmart Heated Tube once a week with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly in a tub of clean water, ensuring all soap residue is removed and hang the tube up to dry away from direct sunlight.
How long is the ThermoSmart Heated Tube?
The tube measures 74 inches in length.
Why Do You Need a Heated Tube?

Heated CPAP tubing serves one primary purpose: preventing moisture buildup in the tube. The heated and humidified air from your CPAP machine cools as it travels from the machine to your face, leading to condensation buildup that, in extreme cases, result in water sloshing around in your hose and mask. If there is a draft nearby (e.g., you sleep with a fan on or near the window), or if you sleep with the AC on, the odds of this happening is even greater.
Condensation in your CPAP tubing is a problem as air flowing past the water droplets can create loud popping sounds that disrupt your sleep. Excess condensation or rainout can result in water splashing onto your face or even into your nose!
Using a heated hose solves these problems because the heated hose helps maintain a constant temperature throughout your CPAP circuit. This temperature control insulates the air inside the tubing from the cooler temperature in its surroundings. As an added bonus, you can even adjust the temperature in the heated hose for your comfort, making this a great upgrade to the standard hose!
