ClimateLine Hose Cover
#11
I use a cover on my heated hose because I don't like the feel of the plastic hose resting next to me on the bed. The hose cover is lightweight and does not appear to interfere with the temperature sensing part of the hose.

I ended up using a hose cover as my hose would make scraping noises every time I moved as it drapes over my wooden headboard. The cover eliminates all noise due to any such movement.

Search for cpap hose cover on Amazon. You will find all kinds. A cover with a zipper is easier to put on the hose, although one without a zipper is not too hard to put on as long as you put a little kitchen platic wrap on one end of the hose before trying to push it through the cover. You will need to measure the hose before choosing a cover. The most common length is 6 feet, but they also come in 8 and 12 foot lengths. A 6 foot cover will be around $15.00 plus shipping.


If his hose is showing wear and signs of failure you may want to get another hose as well. Amazon has those as well. They are $42.00

I recently bought one from Supplier #1 under the brand Snugglehose. Works great and is 13.95 plus not much shipping. This is the second of these that we have in the household. They are easy to use and soft to the touch. It sure beats having that hard hose touching your face.

Be sure to get a backup hose for your son. Medical insurance usually covers a replacement every 6-months. If you're not insured for that, a new one is under $40 and you can order it at the same time as you get the hose cover and save on shipping. You don't want to have a failure and be waiting on a replacement.

Do they make them even shorter? I'd like to be able to cover only the short hose, which is a part of the P10 pillows mask. The main hose is not an issue, as it is heated and it does not come close to my head. If the shortest hose cover available is 6 feet, I'm afraid it might make disconnecting the mask for regular cleaning difficult, since its connection to the main heated hose would be somewhere in the middle of the hose cover.

They do make short hose covers. I have one. If I remember correctly, it's the same brand as the one sleeprider mentioned.

Supplier #31 makes hose covers for the short hoses that attach directly to masks like the P10, as well as covers for the other hoses.  Really nice stuff, but a bit more expensive as she is a small cottage business.

I use the 6-foot snugglehose to cover within a few inches of the mask, and leave the 18" of the climateline near the machine uncovered.  I don't need that part covered, and so I have a soft cover all the way to the mask and off the bed.

It appears that most of these short covers, if not all of them, regardless of the brand name, don't have a zipper.

I guess I could probably get one of those 6-foot snugglehoses, the ones with the zipper. I assume the zipper goes all the way, so removing the mask, and/or the main hose for cleaning should not be an issue.

Since my main hose is a heated ResMed hose, will these snugglehoses be able to fit it (I think that the heated hose might be a bit wider than the regular ones)? I know I don't need the cover for a heated hose, but these longer covers seem to be the only ones with zippers.

ppca, you really don't need a hose cover with a zipper for an 18" hose. It's just too short, and the cover will come on and off easily.

I made one for my 18" hose on the P10. I used an older hose cover than I was no longer using and cut to size. One end already had velcro. I attached Velcro on the cut side and it works perfectly.

For anyone wondering why put a hose cover on a heated hose....one reason and the most important is that it stops rainout. (if you have that problem.) The other reason is simply for comfort.
