Review: CozyHoze Boss Management System

I have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea over two years ago.  Obstructive Sleep Apnea is where your airway closes off while you sleep causing you to stop breathing.  CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure is the best therapy for the moment.  It uses a blower and a mask system to blow air into you as you breath in.  This helps keep the airway clear so that you don’t stop breathing and you don’t wake up.

As a Obstructive Sleep Apnea sufferer there are many frustrations.  The first one is the mask and you just kind of have to get used to that.  Next is the hose.  I was constantly rolling over on top of the hose at night and either feeling the ribs of the hose or waking up with a imprint on my are from laying on it.  Well, my friend Bret from Pur-Sleep has come up with something that resolves this issue with the CozyHoze Boss Management System.


What this is, essentially, is 2 spring loaded pulley like devices with a velcro strap that goes around the hose and a hook that attaches to the wall.


When you bed down for the night, the pulleys pull the hose up and holds it up and out of the way no matter which way I lie, even on my side, the hose is kept up and out if my way.  You forget about the hose most of the time.  Now if they could figure out how to make you forget about the mask, everyone could be 100 percent compliant very easily.


The CozeHoze system is one that is designed to go with you.  It uses 3M command strip adhesive to affix it to the wall and even comes with alcohol pads to clean the spot you need to mount the hook.  Just make sure when you remove it that you pull the command strip until it comes off and do not pull the hook or you will have what you see below.


This is something I wish I had thought of and I wish that had more exposure.  CPAP compliance is not a easy thing for some people.  Some people give up and just deal with all of the extra health problems and the fact they will not get restful sleep.  You have to be determined to use your therapy or you will give up.  It is nice to see someone is coming out with a product that solves a problem that might cause someone new to the therapy to give up.  Plus it is also not expensive like so much equipment is with regards to CPAP therapy.  A six month refresh of equipment including a new hose, filters, and a new mask runs a little over  $300 without insurance depending on the mask.  If your insurance is like mine, then you only pay a portion of this, but my deductible is $200.  Well, with CozeHoze, there’s no worries about paying for it as it only costs $19.99 on the Pur-Sleep website.  For the price of a large fast food dinner for a family, you can be less annoyed be the hose and more apt to use your therapy.  For me, it is well worth the price.

What I liked: Easy install and keeps the hose up and out of the way.  You almost forget about your hose.

What needs improvement: Nothing.

    I’m having one of those “DOH!” moments, like, “why didn’t I think of that”. I’ve been using a CPAP for 10 years now. I used to be able to just route the hose over the head board, but for some reason with the bed I have now that doesn’t work. I will definitely have to look into CozyHose.

    I work for a hospital, the one that treats me, and have had the advantage of being asked to try out several new masks. The best one by far is the “Mirage Swift II” from ResMed:

    I always had trouble with the mask wanting to crush my nasal passages, but the Swift II doesn’t press on the outside, rather it actually “inflates” the nasal passages, and makes it much easier to breathe.

    And, for those that have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and don’t think they can get used to the masks, please don’t give up so easy. It does take some getting used to, but the benefits of a full night’s sleep when you finally do are well worth it. The difference it made in my life was amazing.

    Heh the Swift II was my first mask. I HATED it because I am a mouth breather. Then I tried the Mirage Liberty (also by ResMed) and it worked better, but was way to delicate. I kept snapping pieces off of it. Plus the pillows kept blowing out of my nares. Then I went to the Quattro (ResMed too!) and I am on my second one. It seems a little byzantine, but it woks well for me. I hate chinstraps and will never go to a nasal only mask again unless they figure out a way to stop me from opening my big yap at night.
