The Hybernite Heated Breathing Pipe can be used with any CPAP, APAP and BiPAP system that uses the standard 22mm connection to provide the best humidification imaginably. No more rainout from the humidifier (condensation build-up) and no more inconsistent treatment pressures. The Hybernite solves the problem by keeping the air at the same temperature from the moment it leaves the humidifier until it reaches the mask. Finally, heated pipes are available for any PAP machine!
The Hybernite allows the very best performance from your existing humidifier.
The main disadvantage of a humidifier is “rainout” condensation build-up in the hose and mask. The cause is that the warm air from the humidifier reaches the cold tubing causing water condensation. The water droplets can lead to discomfort and gargling noises. The Hybernite Heated Hose eliminates this problem by keeping the inside of the tubing warm, preventing the air from cooling and condensing.
You may also have found your humidifier chamber is empty come morning, because the humidifier is compensating for temperature loss through the tubing by increasing the temperature.
Humidification with regular hoses can also negatively affect the quality of your therapy. As the humidified air cools, it affects the air pressure. If you are using a fixed pressure machine, then you may be receiving less pressure than you need as a result, making your therapy less effective. For automatic users, your machine may be able to run at a lower average pressure, meaning greater comfort. Using the Hybernite Heated Hose helps ensure your CPAP therapy is as comfortable and accurate as possible while using humidification.

Power Supply Unit Location: The Power Supply Unit is included with this product. The manufacturer recommends that the Power Supply Unit (PSU) for the Hybernite should be placed on the floor during operation.
Humidification Required: The Hybernite Heated Tubing must ALWAYS be used with water humidification to avoid elevated airflow temperatures.
Hose and Ambient Temperatures: The Hybernite hose will reach a temperature between 35°C and 40°C degrees without airflow from the machine. The Hybernite system is recommended to be used in a room with an ambient temperature between 5°C and 30°C. The system should not be used in ambient room temperatures above 30°C.
Hose Covers: It is recommended that an insulated hose cover or other textile objects NOT be used with the Hybernite Heated Tubing to avoid elevated temperatures.
Recommended Cleaning: Before cleaning the power connection must be disconnected from the tubing. The tubing itself should be washed with mild soap and lukewarm water, then rinsed well, hung and allowed to dry. Tap the electrical connection end of the hose on a hard surface to release any water that could be caught inside. The tubing must be COMPLETELY dry before reconnecting to power.
