Questions about CPAP tubes
Questions about CPAP tubes
Hello guys, new to the forum! Appreciate all the info you guys share here!
I have few question about CPAP hoses

1) I know that there are different tube sizes, when it comes to masks as P10 that have extra attachment tube that is smaller than my regular 22mm tube,
should I be worried with pressure changes when it sinches down like that from 22mm to smaller?
are Resmed masks made for their tubes, so if it's P10 it should go into the Resmed heated tube?

2)Is that ribbed short tube that comes with the mask a mess when it comes to cleaning and build up of stuff?

3) If I want more humidity and my device doesn't have the heated tube option, and when I crank up the heat and have build up of water in my tube and mask.
Will sleeves resolve the issue, or I shouldn't even bother with that, and I should get a machine that can accommodate the heated tube.

4)How long do heated tubes last? They are pretty expensive, and how often do you guys change your tubes?
I know that manufacturers will often say change this and that regularly within short period of time because of money/steady income,,and not because it's unusable.
So I'm interested in how long do y'all use these tubes, regular, heated, etc.

5) Thanks
