We are always happy to show off new products, and this one is no exception. The Healthyhose Pro is the first Antimicrobial CPAP Tube. This means that it is built to kill bacteria itself. The days of soaking your hose, rinsing, drying and then repeating are over. It is ISO 22196 Certified. This means that it has been through the stringent process of verification for its Antimicrobial properties. Plus, it is MADE IN THE USA. Many CPAP users tell us that the largest pain in cleaning their CPAP supplies is the tubing. That is because you can’t really get inside to scrub easily, it is hard to dry out, and it seems like something is always growing in there. With the new Healthyhose you have the benefit of knowing that bacteria isn’t growing in the tube that you breath through every night.
What is ISO 22196 certification?
The standard ISO 22196 test method is designed to test the ability of plastics and other similar materials to kill or prevent the growth of microorganisms, over a 24 hour period of contact. Standard antimicrobial testing for ISO 22196 is against both organisms, S. aureus and E. coli. This is the method used to validate the effectiveness of the Healthyhose CPAP tube. The results of the ISO 22196 testing for the Healthyhose CPAP tube is below for reference.
