Hybernite Universal Heated CPAP Tube
The Hybernite Heated Breathing Tube can be combined with any CPAP humidifier to provide the best humidification possible. No more rainout (condensation build up), no more empty water chambers in the morning and no more inconsistent pressure levels. The Hybernite solves these issues by keeping the air at the same temperature from the moment it leaves the humidifier until it reaches the mask. Finally heated hosing is available to everyone!

Hybernite Superday – the universal Rainout Control System
The Hybernite Superday Rainout Control System solves the problem of condensation from your humidification system. You can now enjoy all of the benefits of humidification but without any of the drawbacks – it combines with any humidifier to create the complete humidification system.
The Hybernite Heated Hose simply replaces your existing tubing, and has its own power supply allowing it to be completely universal. Any CPAP system that uses the standard 22mm connection can be combined with the Hybernite, allowing you to get the very best performance from your existing humidifier.
No more condensation, far more comfort
The main drawback of humidification is “rainout” condensation build-up in the hose and mask. The cause is that the warm air from the humidifier reaches the cold tubing, and the humidification condenses to water. This 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. The result means the air reaches you still fully humidified – and no rainout.
You may also have found your humidifier chamber is empty come the morning, because the humidifier is compensating for temperature loss through the tubing by increasing the temperature. By using the Hybernite, the humidifier settings can be reduced as heat loss is no longer an issue – meaning the water will go further and you can enjoy humidification throughout the entire night. Conversely, if you have had your humidifier on a lower setting than you would ideally like in order to reduce rainout, then you can now increase the temperature to the level that is perfect for you without fear of condensation build-up.
Humidification with regular hoses can also negatively affect the quality of your therapy. One study of automatic CPAP machines compared heated hosing to unheated, and the average pressure dropped from 10.9 to 9.8 when the heated hose was added. 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.
Combine the Hybernite with almost any CPAP humidifier
The Hybernite Heated Hose System uses its own power supply, making it completely independent and able to be combined with any existing CPAP or BiPAP humidification system that uses the standard 22mm hose connection. These include M-Series and System One REMstars*, SleepCubes, S6, S7, S8 and S9 machines and many, many more. Virtually all CPAP machines now use this standard connection meaning that the Hybernite can be used with almost any CPAP system. If you are not sure about compatibility, you can email us or phone us on the Contact Us page and we will be happy to help.
The Hybernite Superday Heated Tube simply replaces your existing tubing like for like, ensuring no heat or humidification loss between the humidifier and your mask.
* System One machines should be running software version 1.45 or later – earlier versions are not recommended to be used with the Hybernite.
Please note that the Hybernite is not compatible with Fisher & Paykel CPAP systems, as these have their own integrated heated hose system. Similarly, it is not compatible with System One REMstar 60 machines that are using GB6T humidifiers (GB6H are compatible, however).
PowerPal adds convenience
The Hybernite uses its own mains power supply, and can be turned on or off at the socket. For convenience, you can you a PowerPal which adds a power switch at the tube end. This is useful for those who will have their Hybernite plugged into a wall socket that is difficult to access.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What happens if I connect the mask-end connector to the humidifier and humidifier-end connector to the mask?
A. The Hybernite Rainout Control System will function similarly as with the correct connection. However, to achieve maximum comfort and safety always connect the tubing in the correct direction, as instructed. If fitted the wrong way round, there is a chance that the power cord could get pulled out in your sleep, losing the benefits of the Hybernite System.
Q. Can I use the heated tubing without connecting to the power supply?
A. Yes, but the tubing will simply function as a regular CPAP tube meaning rainout may occur.
Q. Can I run the Hybernite Rainout Control System from a 12V source?
A. No, currently the Hybernite System can only be powered using its own power supply from a mains source.
Q. With what humidifiers or CPAP systems can I use my Hybernite Rainout Control System?
A. The Hybernite Heated Breathing Tube uses the standard 22mm connectors at both ends. This means you can use the Hybernite Heated Breathing Tube with all humidifiers to which a standard CPAP tube fits.
Q. How long is the warranty of the Hybernite Superday Rainout Control System?
A. The warranty of the power supply unit is two years, while the hose itself, which can be replaced separately, has a warranty of 30 days.
Q. Does the Hybernite Rainout Control System come with a UK or European plug?
A. If your delivery address is in the UK then we will include a UK plug, or if the delivery address is in the EU then we will include a European plug, unless advised otherwise by email or telephone.
Q. Can I use a hose fleece with my Hybernite Heated Hose?
A. Many people use hose fleeces to reduce rainout in regular hosing, which is not necessary with the Hybernite. However, they also make the tubing more comfortable to touch, which is also true with the Hybernite Heated Hose. However, we would advise avoiding using a hose fleece as it risks overheating the tube, particularly if the room temperature is above 30°C.
