The DreamStation Auto CPAP Machine is the advanced pressure-adjusting machine in the DreamStation line by Philips Respironics. The DreamStation Auto offers advanced features such as SmartRamp, Opti-Start, and advanced data tracking.
Auto-adjusting Pressure & Opti-Start
The machine remains at the lower pressure of your range, but increases the pressure to support your airway if an event is detected during your sleep. The Opti-Start feature will monitor your therapy for 30 days, and will reset the start pressure closer to whatever your previous pressure was 90% of the time.
Humidifier and heated tube
The humidifier ensures that warm air is provided to the user, deecreasing the chances of congestion and/or dryness. The water chamber may also be preheated 30 minutes in advance of your therapy. The heated tube has five heat settings, which can be used to maintain the warm air as it passes through the tube.
When SmartRamp mode is enabled, the therapy device's ramp function utilizes an auto titrating algorithm during the ramp period, which allows patients to stay at lower pressures during that period, improving their acclimation to the therapy. The device will begin operating as a CPAP machine at the prescribed pressure once SmartRamp reaches that pressure level.
LCD screen with Light Sensor
The colorful, easy-to-use LCD screen is complemented by the ambient light sensor at the top of the machine, which adjusts the screen brightness depending on the surrounding light levels.
Mask Fit Check
The DreamStations mask fit check will help you figure out if your mask is fitting properly or if it’s leaking. The machine will provide airflow to the mask and let you know if leaks are detected in the mask.
This machine's built-in Bluetooth makes it easy to connect to Philips Respironics’ app, DreamMapper (Android and iOS), which provides patients with a variety of helpful tools that include how-to videos, data, and goal setting to keep patients motivated and engaged. Furthermore, each morning patients are shown a summary of their progress.
This is a pressure relieving function - the machine detects your breathing pattern and pressure reductions are established at every out-breath, to make the transition between inhalation and exhalation more natural.
Advanced Data Tracking
The DreamStation provides information on data such as AHI, Periodic Breathing, Leak Rate, and Therapy Hours.
