Hooking up O2 to Dreamstation with Heated

Hooking up O2 to Dreamstation with Heated
Need to find correct adaptor to add Oxygen to DreamStation while using Dreamwisp and heated humidifier.  I ordered a part but wasn’t helpful.

The adapters I found connect between the hose end and the mask. If this is the case, this adapter wouldn't interfere with a heated hose. The prices range from $4.50 to $9.00.

RE: Hooking up O2 to Dreamstation with Heated
I don't have a Philips but when I was sent home with oxygen, they provided me with an adapter that sat between the end of the heated hose and the bottom of the mask and had a side port to connect to the oxygen concentrator. Searching for "Philips CPAP oxygen port adaptor" or "Philips CPAP oxygen bleed adapter" should find some examples on Google. If that's what you've tried then I'm not sure. I did find that someone modded a SoClean adaptor to fit between their mask and heated hose. Though if the mask fits into the end of the hose directly, I'm not sure why the adaptors wouldn't fit. Is it too small or too large?

I know that some of the FFMs have an oxygen port on them otherwise, I'm not sure.

In the end, I got a heated Resmed hose with the oxygen port built in at the machine end, which makes for a far more comfortable result than having that extra tube up at my face and trying not to get kinked. Another reason I want a Resmed ASV.

Thank you.  Respiratory Therapist here at hospital is looking for hookup options.  An option I have not pullled out yet is the Airsense 11.   It at home new in box.   I’d rather not mess with it and just get some humidified Dreamstation working with O2 so I can sleep tonight.

I hope you got some rest but honestly, that Resmed will probably prove to be a huge upgrade. Wink
