ResMed Climateline Hose - Cleaning
#11
Humm, I don't think I would use a shop air compressor on a CPAP hose, but that is just me - I would be concerned about the pressure damaging the hose.

I have the same hose and have never had a problem with stuff building up in it.

If you feel there is mold or other gunk building up I would soak in a weak solution of dish washing liquid for about 1/2 to 1 hour and then rinse very well. I agree about hanging up to drip dry, it will just get wet again when I use it at night.

I prefer to hang the hose up in the kitchen rather than the bathroom - just me.

If you've waited that long for mold and gunk to build-up, probably you're sick already, best throw it away
You'll need to do the cleaning more often, no brownies points Smile

Some air compressors have oil in the air lines from the pump, not recommended for breathing. Even oil-less compressors are not made for breathing.

Can the entire hose be submerged in soapy water, even the end with the electrical contacts? I just read the User Guide and it isn't very specific about this.

Yes, you can submerge the whole thing. I soak both my brother's and my heated hoses regularly and it's a non-problem. As mentioned, there is no reason to use a BRUSH unless you can actually see some kind of gunk (and I'd be finding out WHY there is gunk there to begin with). If your machine is on the floor, then raise it up some. Also, change your filter more often. The only parts that I can see developing any guck is the mask and the first foot or so of the hose from your facemask.
