ClimateLineMAX Oxygen Tubing for VPAPs by ResMed
ResMed's ClimateLine Max Oxy Air Tubing comes with an oxygen port for those who need additional oxygen as part of their therapy program. The tube's wide diameter allows for a steady supply of oxygen and pressure, allowing you to breathe easily and comfortably throughout the night.
For sleep apnea users who use ResMed S9 CPAP devices and need enhanced oxygen flow, the ClimateLine provides an ideal therapeutic solution. The SlimLine's wide diameter allows for oxygen to flow through the tube where it can mix with warm and humidified air for a comfortable breathing experience.
Along with ResMed's Climate Control algorithm, the SlimLine works to deliver you a constant and comfortable temperature at the mask, which will help reduce rainout, nasal congestion, and dry mouth.
One of the benefits of the design of the SlimLine tube is that ResMed's flexible tube allows users to move freely throughout the night. The device accommodates several sleeping positions, and because it connects so solidly to ResMed S9 devices, the design reduces mask drag.

To clean the SlimLine, wash with warm water, mild soap, and a soft cloth. Rinse everything out well and hang it to dry.

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!
I use a S9 machine and with a climate line tubing but I also use a oxygen concentrator and I normally have to use some type of adapter to plug in my other machine. Using this tubing makes a it a whole lot easier and much more convenient just hook up my tubing and plug in my concentrator into the oxy port. that simple!
