Getting tangled up in your CPAP tubing can be uncomfortable and cause disruptions to your therapy.

Drawing on our 10+ years of experience in the CPAP industry, we have compiled a list of tips to help you when it comes to your CPAP tubing.

Invest in a ‘top of the head’ mask

Top of the head designed masks are a great way to avoid getting tangled up in your CPAP tubing at night. They are particularly beneficial for stomach and side sleepers. They are created so that the tubing connects to the mask from a connection point that sits at the top of the head (as opposed to traditional CPAP masks that connect to the front of the mask).

Masks that have this type of design include the ResMed AirFit P30i and the ResMed AirFit N30i.

Hang Tubing On The Bed Head

To avoid getting tangled, try hanging your tubing from your bed head. This will limit how much exposure you have to the tube in the night, meaning less chance of getting caught up in it.

Use a CPAP Pillow

There are pillows available that are specifically designed with CPAP users in mind. These pillows can prove to be a solution to your problem by providing a space for your CPAP tubing to rest. They are also shaped to allow room for your CPAP mask. If you would like further information on the Best In Rest Memory Foam CPAP Pillow, Click here.

Experiment with tube position

It is also worth trying out some different techniques with the tube position. Some people report having success keeping it close to them. Some put it under their pyjamas. Others will sleep as close to the side of the bed as possible. 

As with a lot of CPAP therapy, experimenting to find what works best for you is a sound strategy.
