Flexible 12 mm CPAP Tubing
The DreamStation Go micro-flexible tubing from Respironics is intended for use with any CPAP machine compatible with 12 mm tubes. This includes products from both Respironics and ResMed. If your machine accomodates 12 mm tubes, you'll be able to use this intuitive and lightweight tube.
Advantages to Lightweight Tube
Lightweight tubes are preferable for a few reasons: they won't drag your mask down, you'll be able to turn over without resistance from a bulky tube, and they tend to be easier to assemble. Having better flexibilty equates to more comfort and more comfort provides freedom of movement therefore creating unparalleled therapy. Weighing just a few ounces, the tubing reduces drag and will help you maintain an effective seal throughout the night.
The 12mm Tube is compatible with any CPAP or BiPAP machine that can work with a 12 mm hose.
The 15 mm performance tube as well as the traditional 22mm tube will work with the DreamStation Go device. They are all standard six feet long in length which gives you the flexibility to toss and turn without dislodging your mask at night..
- Travel Friendly
- Aesthetic White Colored Design
- Reduces Drag
If you've found that your 12 mm tube is too light, consider trying a 15mm or 22mm tube instead. When using a size tube other than 12mm on he DreamStation Go then you must change the tube type located in the "My Comfort" option of the device.
How to Manage Your CPAP Tubing
How can I tell if my machine accomodates a 12 mm tube?
For Respironics products, check your machine. If, under TUBING TYPE, it offers 3 options (12 mm,15 mm and 22 mm).
How long do tubes usually last?
A few months, if they're taken care of. You'll want to clean the tube daily to remove bacteria from the tube, but eventually, unremovable bacteria will clog the inside of your tube and you'll need to get it replaced altogether.
