ClimateLineAir Oxy Tubing for AirSense 10 and AirCurve 10 by ResMed
This ClimateLineAir Oxy Tubing is designed for use with all ResMed AirSense 10 and AirCurve 10 CPAP and BiPAP machines. Featuring a built-in oxygen port, the heated ClimateLineAir Oxy Tubing seamlessly integrates supplemental oxygen while maintaining a comfortable temperature and humidity level throughout the night. The tubing has a 19mm inner diameter and standard 22mm diameter cuffs, making it compatible with all masks.
Adjustable Tube Temperature
When connected to the AirSense/AirCurve 10, the ClimateLineAir Oxy tubing activates Climate Control, ResMed's smart humidification system designed to maintain consistent temperature and humidity levels. The temperature within the ClimateLineAir Oxy Tubing can be set to auto for a comfortable 80°F (27°C) or manually adjusted within the range of 60-86°F (16-30°C). The ClimateLineAir Oxy Tubing uses its advanced temperature-sensing technology to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the length of the tube, thereby preventing condensation buildup that causes rainout.
What is the difference between the ClimateLineAir Tubing and ClimateLineAir Oxy Tubing?
Both the ClimateLineAir Tubing and ClimateLineAir Oxy Tubing are heating tubing designed exclusively for the ResMed AirSense/AirCurve 10 series of machines. When connected, both tubing enable Climate Control which minimizes humidity and temperature adjustments during therapy and prevents condensation buildup. However, the ClimateLineAir Oxy Tubing is specifically designed for use with oxygen therapy. The integrated oxygen port eliminates the need to connect an oxygen adapter to the mask which can add additional weight to the circuit.
What is the recommended replacement schedule for the ClimateLineAir Oxy heated tube?
The ClimateLineAir Oxy tube should be replaced every 6-12 months, or as needed depending on the frequency of use and maintenance conditions.
How do I clean and maintain the ClimateLineAir Oxy heated tube?
The ClimateLineAir Oxy heated tube should be cleaned once a week using warm water and mild detergent. Avoid using harsh chemicals or cleaning agents such as bleach as they can damage the tubing. We recommend using a tube brush to scrub the inside of the tube for a thorough clean. Rinse the tube out with running water and hang the tube up, allowing it to air dry away from direct sunlight.
What are the dimensions for the ClimateLineAir Oxy Tubing?
The ClimateLineAir Oxy Tubing has a length of 6 feet 4 inches (1.9m) and an inner diameter of 19mm.
What machines are compatible with the ClimateLineAir Oxy heated tube?
The ClimateLineAir Oxy heated tube is compatible with the following ResMed AirSense 10 CPAP machines: AirSense 10 AutoSet (Card to Cloud), AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her, AirSense 10 Elite and manual AirSense 10.
The ClimateLineAir Oxy heated tube is compatible with the following ResMed AirCurve 10 BiPAP machines: AirCurve 10 ASV, AirCurve 10 VAuto, AirCurve 10 ST, AirCurve 10 ST-A.
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!
