Using a SoClean adaptor for Oxygen

Using a SoClean adaptor for Oxygen
I have not had success finding a heated tube with an oxygen port  for my Dreamstation however a SoClean adaptor looks like it will solve the problem. Before ordering I wanted to see if anyone here has used this adaptor before and if there is anything in particular That I need to know about it.
Thanks.

RE: Using a SoClean adaptor for Oxygen
I don't know about the SoClean adapter, but here is a Youtube video that shows that there is an adapter for oxygen bleed in for the heated hose. 
The guy says there are links to be able to order the items he is using. 

Hope this helps.

I'm unfamiliar with anything SoClean, but you can find Oxygen adapters on Amazon or at most any supplier on the list above.  

Supplier #1 has the adapter for $5.00.

RE: Using a SoClean adaptor for Oxygen
If you use a heated tube with your Dreamstation, the oxygen bleed adapter can be inserted between the mask and the tube. If the tube is not heated it will fit at the humidifier outlet. Resmed makes the Climateline Oxy heated tube which has an integrated oxygen bleed port, but I have not seen one for Philips.

Upsman posted this video above that actually explains the placement of the adapter
very well, and he uses the DreamStation as an example in the video with regular hose and heated hose.

RE: Using a SoClean adaptor for Oxygen
Thank you and everyone for helping .
Perhaps I didn't explain too well in my OP and for that I apologize. 
I would like to avoid using the methods suggested and also shown in that YouTube video because these connections leave me with an additional length of O2 tubing that has to run parallel to my air tube and somehow secured so as to avoid tangling.
   
A SoClean adaptor however (available on Amazon) provides for a clean and professional looking connection as seen in this picture 

i was just wondering if anyone here has used it before and can comment on it as it looks like the perfect solution in that it helps deliver O2 when connected to an O2 concentrator instead of being connected to an Ozone generator.

RE: Using a SoClean adaptor for Oxygen
Assuming you are using a heated tube, that is the only option I am aware of for connection at the humidifier on a Philips machine. As I said before, the Resmed Climateline Oxy does this without additional parts. I am aware of a thread on this in the CPAP talk forum.
