ResMed CPAP Hoses

ResMed CPAP Hoses
The ResMed CPAP hose that came with my AirMini is super soft -- the best CPAP hose I have used, although it has a proprietary connector. The ResMed CPAP hose that came with my AirSense 11 has a generic connector, but is as stiff and uncomfortable as any hose I have ever used. Rather frustrating.

Any ideas why these OEM hoses are so different?!

BobinHI;
My AS 11 came with a heated Climate Line hose ..
I thought it was plenty flexible .. I have not used a
regular or Airmini hose ..
The Climate Line also helps prevent rainout ..
If You're using an unheated hose maybe the Climate
Line would work better ..
Good Luck

How often do you change your hose?

RE: ResMed CPAP Hoses
My Climateline hose is almost 5 years old and still works fine. I wash it a few times a year in warm water with a few drops of Dawn dish soap, rinse it in warm water, “helicopter” spin it outside to get most of the water out, then hang it to dry until I go to bed.

I just recently replaced my machine's hose with a new one. I got my machine back in Sept. of 2018.

I just got my new machine, Airsense 11, and the heated hose that came with it is really stiff, all the other heated hoses I have gotten with my previous machine are super flexible. Pretty disappointing.

It loses elasticity the more you use it. After 6 months it becomes like 6” longer and is much softer.
