Philips Respironics DreamStation CPAP Pro Machine
The Philips Respironics Dreamstation Pro CPAP Machine is an intelligently built non-auto machine. This device provides the user a fixed pressure of air(4-20cm H20) giving you a natural breathing experience throughout the night. An advance airflow waveform as well as Flex technology enhances overall comfort. A full color LCD screen makes this machine user friendly so that you can track your progress at any time. The user can operate the machine while laying down in bed or sitting while watching TV/reading a book. Providing you one pressure throughout the night and being lightweight makes this machine ideal.
One of the best features on the Philips Respironics DreamStation Pro is that it allows the exclusive use of "Auto Trial" mode. With 30 days in the time period, the device essentially functions similar to an Auto-Adjusting CPAP machine in which it will automatically adjust pressure to give you optimum pressure on a breath-by-breath basis during the course of the night. Determining what is optimum pressure for the user is imperative and once that has been decided with the completion of the Auto-Trial then the machine will revert back to a fixed pressure. This feature is designed to find and provide a pressure setting that was used roughly 90% of the time during the trial. The Results? Better Sleep Therapy.
Philips Respironics brings back C-Flex+ technology into the Dreamstation Pro. With traditional CPAP therapy pressure being provided at all times, C-Flex+ technology leads the way with enhanced comfort which results in better compliance. As air is being delivered at the beginning of each breath, it lowers the pressure at the end of each breath by a numerical increment which provides the user breathing in a transition that feels more natural and less forced. This is all thanks to the advancements of the Digital Auto-Trak Algorithm built into the machine. This is all possible by detecting whether or not flex is needed at the onset of inhaling prior to exhaling. In other words, by mirroring the users breathing pattern on a breath-by-breath basis, the intelligent algorithm will respond to the users needs to ensure a natural breathing process.
Heated Humidifier/Heated Tubing Optional
One word comes to mind when discussing the Dreamstation: Elegant. The same word also applies to the heated humidifier as well. With the humidifier being integrated, it will attach directly into the Philips Respironics DreamStation Pro without falter. Simple yet elegant was the theme for the humidifier that can be used with this device. The humidifier snaps perfectly and securely into the back of the machine creating a single silhouette which can be adjusted on main display.
Two modes are offered on when the humidifier is in use: Standard or Adaptive.
Having the Philips Respironics Dreamstation CPAP machine operate in "Standard" mode will keep it in a traditional mode by simply providing a heated temperature that has be pre-set for the entire night. "Adaptive" mode offers precision determined by the user providing humidification throughout the night disregarding the surrounding humidity in the room, the room temperature or any other external factors. With the addition of the Heated tubing for the Dreamstation you can alleviate the overall likelihood of condensation build-up in the tube and add a bit more humidity from the air flowing from the humidifier. This is something that would not be possible with the standard medical grade tubing.
Dream on the clouds
The Philips Respironics Dreamstation Pro is versatile as it can be used at home and even for travel. With the device being FAA approved for travel you can use it during flight where AC power is available. Minus the humidifier, the weight of the machine comes down to just about 3 lbs and can be used in the travel case that is supplied or fit snugly into your own personal travel bag. If you are the outdoor type of person rest we have you covered with the ability to purchase a DC power cord.
During sleep therapy it is nice to know the Philips Respironics Dreamstation CPAP machine will continue to look after you. Unlike the traditional Ramp feature you've come to know and love, this new device offers the ability to monitor therapy levels during the initial ramp period and continue to deliver low pressure until a detection is made. Should a detection be made, the SmartRamp will quickly respond to the apnea event and raise the pressure that is required until the ramp period is over. If an apnea event requires the machine to ramp up to your pre-set pressure then ramp will shut off completely and go straight into therapy mode. Of course, if there are no events being detected during the ramp period, a 1cm H20 incremental increase will continue along slowly each minute until the preset pressure is reached
Designed For Patients
This compact, simple to use package contains the important features patients told us they wanted in a therapy device. It’s small and light, making it easy to pack for travel. The front display contains menus that can be operated while lying down or sitting up in bed as well as an easy-to-clean, one-piece humidifier water chamber.
Easy to get used to
DreamStation makes it easy for patients starting CPAP therapy to get into a routine of continued long-term use. DreamStation can help patients gradually get used to therapy, while the SmartRamp feature allows users to fall asleep to lower pressures.
Simplified device evaluation
In-home device evaluation simplifies remote troubleshooting, which can reduce the number of devices that are returned for service. The self-diagnostic tool reduces the time and frustration associated with device troubleshooting.
