ClimateLineMAX Oxygen Tubing for S9 CPAP and VPAP by ResMed
The ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tubing is designed exclusively for ResMed S9 CPAP and BiPAP machines. Featuring a built-in oxygen port, the heated ClimateLineAir Oxy Tubing seamlessly integrates supplemental oxygen with your sleep apnea therapy while maintaining a comfortable temperature and humidity level throughout the night. This heated tubing is designed with an inner diameter of 19mm and standard 22mm diameter cuffs for compatibility with all CPAP masks.
What is the difference between the S9 ClimateLine Heated Tubing and ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tubing?
Both the S9 ClimateLine Tubing and ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tubing are heating tubing designed exclusively for the ResMed S9 Series. When connected to a S9 CPAP or BiPAP with a H5i Heated Humidifier, both tubing enable Climate Control which optimizes humidity and temperature for greater comfort. Both tubing also prevents condensation buildup by maintaining a consistent temperature across the length of the tube.
However, only the ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tubing is specifically designed to add oxygen therapy to the S9 without the need for an oxygen adapter. The tube features an integrated oxygen port, eliminating the need to connect an oxygen adapter to your mask which adds additional weight to the circuit.
What are the dimensions for the ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tubing?
The ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tubing has a length of 75 inches (190.5cm) and an inner diameter of 19mm.
What is the recommended replacement schedule for the ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tubing?
The ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tube should be replaced every 6-12 months, or as needed depending on the frequency of use and maintenance conditions.
How do I remove the ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tubing from my CPAP machine?
To remove the ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tubing, rotate the hose counterclockwise and pull it off the back of your S9 machine.
What machines are compatible with the ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tube?
The ClimateLineMAX Oxy Tube is compatible only with ResMed S9 CPAP and BiPAP/VPAP machines with a H5i Heated Humidifier.
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!
