Post a photo of the hose connected to the machine and we'll tell you which it is. Or look up on any online CPAP supply seller and look at their pictures. A ClimateLine hose has a different connector than a slim-line hose.

RE: Slim Line? How do I know
I doubt that the selection of which tube you have does much with your therapy, it would do more as how the statistics are recorded. 

I would suggest you supply an OSCAR charts of your most recent nights sleep. 

OSCAR is totally free as is everything on this site. Download from the top of the site. To learn about OSCAR go to wiki also at the top of site and search OSCAR.

RE: Slim Line? How do I know
Barring the use of a ClimateLine, since its use will automatically override any manual settings, a regular hose is about 22-mm OD and a slimline hose is around 19-mm OD. Since all hose ends are the same size, you will notice a greater difference between the hose diameter and the connectors on a Slimline hose.

RE: Slim Line? How do I know
Regardless of hose, your therapy was being ruined in the past several threads by large leaks, but in the end of one of those leak conversations it seemed therapy was working better. Your health and therapy benefits seem to have disappeared and it doesn't sound like it's getting back on track. You may need to consider other health issues that need investigated.
