DreamStation positive airway pressure (PAP) sleep therapy devices are designed to be as comfortable and easy to experience as sleep is intended to be. Connecting patients and care teams, DreamStation devices empower users to embrace their care with confidence.
4 modes available :
CPAP-Check mode checks on the user every 30 hours to determine if therapy pressure is optimal. If it is not optimal, it automatically adjusts the nightly fixed CPAP pressure by 1 cm H2O to obtain ideal pressure.
Auto-Trial: Auto-Trial mode delivers breath-by-breath auto-CPAP therapy for up to a total of 30 days, after which the device automatically transitions into the CPAP-Check mode at the pressure the patient was at or below 90% of the trial period time.

Patient driven design
A sleek, stylish, low-profile design offers the important features patients told us they wanted in a therapy device. It's small and light, making it easy to pack for travel. It features easy-to-navigate menus, a front-facing display that can be operated while lying down or sitting up in bed as well as an easy-to-clean, one-piece humidifier water chamber.
Acclimation made easy
DreamStation includes a set of tools to help make it easy for patients starting PAP therapy and for their continued long-term use. EZ-Start can help patients gradually acclimate to therapy, while SmartRamp allows users to fall asleep to lower pressures. EZ-Start initiates your PAP therapy at a lower setting and increases the pressure by 1 everynight if 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep is detected. If you are unable to tolerate at least a full 4 hours of sleep then EZ-start will not increase the pressure for up to 30 days.
Simplified device evaluation
Remote troubleshooting simplifies in-home device evaluation and can help reduce the number of normally functioning devices that are returned for service. Patients can use the easy device self-diagnostic tool to reduce the time and frustration associated with device troubleshooting.
Cost-effective connectivity options
Integrated Bluetooth is standard on every device, and optional Wi-Fi and cellular modems provide the most comprehensive suite of connectivity options among leading CPAP brands.* DreamStation's modular design makes it easy for you to choose the most cost-effective option for each patient.
Support for the long term
Built-in Bluetooth makes connectivity to the DreamMapper patient self-management tool easy. DreamMapper provides goal-setting tools, helpful videos and ongoing feedback to keep patients motivated and engaged. Patients can get the help they need fast.
Wake up to progress
Each morning patients are greeted with a summary of their progress to motivate them to stick with their therapy. The display shows a simple trend of their nightly hours of use, followed by a summary of the last 30 days of good nights that have more than 4 hours of use.
A-Flex or C-Flex pressure relief technology
C-Flex pressure relief technology makes sleep therapy more comfortable by reducing pressure at the beginning of exhalation and returning to therapeutic pressure just before inhalation. The level of pressure relief varies based on the patients expiratory flow and which of the three C-Flex settings has been selected.
Humidity Control for Comfort
Humidity Control has been designed with enhanced intelligence to establish optimum patient comfort and device performance. Patients select one of five dial settings to receive a consistent delivery of relative humidity at the mask to meet their personal needs. For additional comfort, DreamStation now has improved absolute humidity and target relative humidity levels across all humidifier dial settings. In addition, a new classic mode provides the ability to shut off humidity control, if preferred.
The Integrated Heated Humidifier is designed to bring added comfort and improved performance to all PR CPAP & BiPAP machines. The Heated Humidifier measures and adapts to environmental changes throughout the night to deliver the humidity level you prefer regardless of external factors. Heated Tubing provides added protection against rainout and allows greater humidity levels than traditional non-heated systems.
Delivering consistent humidity levels throughout the night, at the mask, improves sleep therapy comfort and compliance. Once your preferred level is set the humidifier monitors and adapts to changes in room temperature, therapy flow, and external humidity to deliver your preferred level of humidity at the mask regardless of external changes.
Use Heated Tubing for Added Comfort
The DreamStation comes complete with Philips Respironics Heated Tubing. Heated Tubing works in concert with the humidifier's automatic adjustment capabilities to reduce and eliminate condensation and rainout while increasing overall humidity levels. If you prefer non-heated tubing the Humidifier can also be used with standard CPAP & BiPAP tubing, Performance tubing, and Slim Performance Tubing.
Breakthrough technology that eliminates rainout
Using advanced sensing technologies, Humidity Control closely monitors room temperature, room humidity, and flow to determine what is required to maintain the patient-selected relative humidity level - even when environmental conditions change. By controlling relative humidity output at the mask, Humidity Control can prevent rainout.* With such intelligent control, our other comfort technologies, such as Flex, perform at their peak, providing maximum comfort and encouraging long-term compliance.

I was happy to be able to buy just the cushion for the mask, although I did feel it was very expensive at $75. It seems to have increased to more than double in the past year. However, it was shipped promptly and received within three days and there were no shipping charges. I hope we will continue to be able to buy parts for the mask and hope they will not increase anymore in price. It is cheaper to buy a complete mask, but if you have a few masks on hand that only need one or two parts it does not make sense to throw them out.

I phoned to order a new hose for my CPAP machine and received excellent service. The hose was on sale with no shipping cost and there was a promotion on that gave me a second hose at no cost plus a container of wipes. Everything just cost me $18.30. I received everything in the mail three mailing days later. I was very surprised and pleased to get it so fast. I will most definitely contact you when I need parts again.

I wrote to CPAP Clinic & asked them if they had the soft wraps for sale separately from the head gear on a ResMed swift FX. They didn t at the time, but soon had them for sale on line. Great service.
