Elite CPAP Machine with Comfortable Heated Humidifier
The ResMed S9 AutoSet CPAP and H5i Humidifier is a high end sleep apnea therapy device that delivers comfort and performance. The Humidifier is built to automatically adjust the CPAP machine's humidity settings based on room conditions, and it's new and improved design adjusts this setting unobtrusively. You'll be breathing better and more naturally with Easy-Breathe technology, which monitors every breath for a more natural respiratory process. With SmartStart and SmartStop, the S9 Auto with the H5i Humidifier is perhaps the easiest top of the line device to use available today.
H5i Heated Humidifier
ResMed overhauled their humidification system with their S9 design. In the S9, ResMed designed for the Climate Control system to be managed by a combinaton of the machine, the heated tube, and the humidifier itself. The device comes with five sensors that monitor the S9's tmeperature and humidity settings, keeping your machine running at peak performance. Just set the level of humidity yourself, and enjoy a relaxing, rainout-free night's sleep!
ResMed's AutoSet Algorithm tracks your personal flow inhibitors with every breath. Measuring your snoring and apneas, the device automatically adjusts pressure emissions based on your air flow. Pressure will subside after flow has been corrected. By monitoring your breathing habits on a breath-by-breath basis, the S9 is the quickest responding sleep apnea therapy device on the market. This quick response gives you pressure when you need it, and with these manageable adjustments, the machine works to ensure that your needs are met in a timely and efficient manner. The machine is also great when you're sick: the S9 will detect that you are having difficulties breathing through your nose, and will automatically increase the pressure supply, allowing you to get a comfortable rest when you need it most.
The S9's Easy-Breathe technology simply helps you breathe better and more naturally than other CPAP devices. The technology smoothes the device's pressure during an increase, initiating normal respiration, and making breathing more comfortable.
The S9 comes with ResMed's standard small diameter air tube. The hose comes with a temperature gauge and a heated coil that guards against rainout. The tube's flexibility is also great for people who toss and turn at night.
