Heated Hose for Fisher & Paykel CPAP Machines
The ThermoSmart Heated Hose by Fisher & Paykel and designed exclusively for the SleepStyle Auto machine has arrived! Equipped with new technology, your therapy will continue to be at its best every time it's in use. The heated hose is a high-performance and comfortable CPAP hose that will help you get the sleep you deserve.
Lighter and AirSpiral Tech
Have you ever experienced a rainout, or have been woken up due to nasal congestion, or maybe woke up and the first thing you feel is dry mouth? Using a CPAP machine can cause these things to happen which is why Fisher & Paykel created the ThermoSmart tube. Comparatively, this ThermoSmart tube is about 20% lighter in weight compared to its predecessor. Also with it being lightweight, you will greatly reduce weight on the bed and the tube will seize from dragging the mask from your face which ultimately leads to better stability and comfort. Coming equipped with AirSpiral technology, the spiraled coils are insulated which works by having the spirals heat during usage. You will see that the tube will work to minimize condensation and any heat loss from the CPAP device. Say goodbye to rainouts and hello to an ambient temperature no matter what the conditions are around you.
The Thermosmart Heated Hose is compatible with Fisher & Paykel SleepStyle Series Auto CPAP machines only, and will not work with any ResMed, Respironics, or DeVilbiss equipment.
Hoses eventually will be worn and can break from time to time when you least expect it. It's not common but it does happen so you will always want to have a backup in any case. Even a good cleaning regimen isn't foolproof as there will be unremovable bacteria that will eventually clog the hose, and once that happens, you'll want to get your replacement.

- Lightweight and Easy to Carry
Be sure to clean this tube regularly: it works great, but removing bacteria can get tricky if you don't stay on top of the maintenance.
How should I clean my heating tube?
At Respshop, we generally don't recommend putting products into washing machines or dishwashers. We find that washing them with warm water, a non-abrasive soap, and a soft cloth helps keep the item from fraying or coming apart while still cleaning it effectively.

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!
