Climate line hose vs mask - adapter to connect?
#1
I wanted to try the ResMed ClimateLine hose last night and discovered that it didn't fit the mask connector. Is there an adapter to allow that fit? Or does one need to get a mask that specifically fits that?

Well, one end fits into the machine, but the other end is a standard 22 mm ruber fitting. Take a look at your old hose and see if you didn't remove the mask coupler and left it there.

The hose size is an industry standard, . . one of the few things all manufacturers got right. Look in your old hose for a little plastic bushing. Most masks have one and is used as a quick disconnect.

Thanks!
I found it, carefully pulled it out, and inserted it into the Climate Line. It had seemed attached to the old hose, previously, and I have crap for vision.

I'll see how that goes tonight.
