[Product Review] North American Healthcare JB5651 Cpap Hose Holder
#1
5

After reading a few comments here and elsewhere from folks whose only regret about this device was not getting one sooner, I searched for a CPAP hose holder, ordered the exact one named in the title of this review, and couldn't agree more with the suggestion.

There are a few other CPAP hose holders reviewed in this forum...

...but I'd go with this one. The first one above may no longer be available and the second one (by Arden) appears to be a slightly older variation which is more expensive (US$29.95 and CA$37.35 from apneaboard.com suppliers) and which takes a bit more futzing about to put together the base which inserts between the mattress and the box spring.

It goes for $14.48 (+ $7.21 Shipping & Import Fees Deposit to Canada) on a popular online shopping site owned by the richest human on the planet Rolleyes . By the way, Canadians, do not order from this guy's Canadian version of the site since, as is often the case, the same item sells there for CDN$ 63.61 Oh-jeez .


Pros:
  • Even if, as with me, your CPAP hose isn't so much of a bother, even though you might be a side-sleeper or toss and turn frequently during the night, this really eliminates any incidences of rolling over on your hose, getting it wedged between your mattress and the headboard, or annoying tugging.
  • Easy to install.
  • Stays put once installed.
  • Folds up nicely into the provided pouch for traveling.
  • Although less of an issue if you have a heated hose, helps alleviate rainout.
  • Did I mention price?
Cons:
  • Due to its IV stand-like appearance, makes your bed look just a little more like a hospital bed, rather than a place of rest and the occasional romp Licklips Bouncy .  (Although it might be an intriguing conversation starter for the swinging from the chandeliers crowd :Banana  )

I have one, and when I'm away from home, and don't take it with me... I realize how much I like it. :-)

It really does make the whole thing much more comfortable. My only issue is that I wish I could put it under the mattress between the headboard and the bed... rather then on the side. But that isn't an issue with the device, it's a positional thing with the wall, my bed, etc.

Hmmm, hows the reflection in the ceiling mirror? or is that too much info? Lolabove

Looks interesting, I prefer my setup  for comfort, but i'm sure it works and does the job admirably.

Attention, Kmart Shoppers!
Bluelight Special!

Kmart has it for $11.76.*
Amazon has it for $11 now.*
Walgreen's has it for for $8.59.*

*US only.

If you are determined or restricted to buying within Canada, the Canadian version of the "A" site has now reduced its price to a low, low CDN$55.27. Perturbed Thanks a lot.




Edit: Very well, although price and availability are generally considered helpful elements in a product review (no links to commercial websites, though, in keeping with board policy), I'll sweeten the pot with a few more review points.

Pros:
  • If you look more closely at the pictures, the part the hose hangs from is a kind of supple loop of wound material in the style of telephone cords of old, and this hangs from a somewhat elastic bungee cord strung from the inside of the metal tubing. The net effect, contrary to similar models with fixed attachments for the hose, is that there is just the right amount of give and take for the hose to move with you when you turn over, for instance, yet without drooping down too much and getting in the way. In other words, it's designed to gently extend and retract as you might toss and turn through the night, without any uncomfortable tugging at your mask.

(Possible) Cons:
  • Some people on the Interwebs have complained that the base, which inserts between the mattress and the box spring, snapped or broke after a while. Hard to say if it was this exact model or a previous variant that had this problem, so time will tell.
*Tested so far by inserting the base at the head of the bed, between the mattress and the headboard, not on the side of the bed as in the above illustrations.

*Tested so far with a Resmed AirFit P10 and a Respironics DreamWear nasal cushion mask. While it works well with the P10, it really shines with Dreamwear, making its headtop hose connection even more unobtrusive and "seamless."
