Article: Finding the Right Tubing (Hose) for Your CPAP
I happened to find this while trying to find out some information on the dimensions of the ResMed ClimateLineAir hose and thought it might be useful for new users.

Finding the Right Tubing (Hose) for Your CPAP

[commercial link removed. Google "Sleepdr blog hose" and it should come up]

I specifically thought the chart would be helpful. Smile

RE: Article: Finding the Right Tubing (Hose) for Your CPAP
Thanks for the link. My wife is looking for a hose to use with a travel machine she was given. Should help. 

But this reminds me of a funny story. A couple of years ago we went on a vacation to a small town in Mexico. In that last minute packing rush my wife forgot to pack her CPAP S9 hose. Big problem as she really needs a CPAP. Getting a hose locally was out of the question, and finding somebody that even knew what we were talking about was a problem. I finally got a local guide to take us to a hardware store to look for a hose. Amazingly we found some bright florescent orange plastic corrugated electrical conduit. I think it cost us about 8 pesos (50 cents). My plan was to use duct tape to attach it as it was not a perfect fit. Couldn't find anyone that knew what it was or what they called it in Spanish, so used black electrical tape instead. It didn't work well, so we had to come back to town and continue the search for duct tape. We finally found it. They call it Ducto Tape! Spent another 20 pesos on ducto tape. That all worked quite well. The only issue was that under certain flow conditions it would whistle. Strange, but listening to that was much better than listening to my wife complain about not having a CPAP!

So there you go, if you really get stuck for a hose get some electrical conduit and ducto tape!!
