Heated Tubing for ICON CPAP Machine
The ThermoSmart Heated Hose has an internal heated coil that helps to eliminate rainout in your hose. The ThermoSmart's internal algorithms measure temperatures from the humidifier to prevent condensation from appearing in the mask. From end to end, the ThermoSmart is 76.5 inches long.
The ThermoSmart is built to maintain a pleasing, warm temperature from the humidifier through to your mask. The tube comes with internally heated coils that keep temperature and humidity constant throughout the duration of your sleep apnea therapy.
Different Than Normal Heated Tubes
Unlike most heated tubes, the ThermoSmart heats air already inside the tube. This helps to reduce condensation, eliminate rainout, and prevent the onset of symptoms commonly associated with CPAP therapy, including dryness in the throat and mouth.
The Fisher Paykel ThermoSmart tube is compatible only with the manufacturer's ICON line of machines. It will not work with any other product, including other Fisher & Paykel models.

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 on to your face or pour in to 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 to the standard hose!
A very good thing! Do not sweat! I like it!
I have not seen this with other brands
Well worth having as a spare, i have three tubes now i get one every time i buy something from Respshop, they are $AU 80 + here in Australia. They are quite durable but i accidentally put a hole in one a while ago. With the Icon Auto the heated tube works better than on my previous Icon Premo don't know why but it does for me.
