New APAPs are always being developed. One of the latest is the Respironics DreamStation Auto . This unit features Flex Family Technology that provides three levels of pressure relief for maximum comfort and effective therapy; Resistance Control that automatically adjusts the pressure depending on the mask; automatic altitude adjustment; and humidification of the optional heated tube to prevent excessive dryness or wetness.
Auto CPAPs come in a range of sizes, including convenient travel sizes. They take up little space on your nightstand and are much quieter than previous models. Small but powerful, our travel units provide all the winning features of full-size devices in a lightweight, compact design. Some weigh as little as 1lb. You can enjoy sleep apnea relief on the road.
Auto CPAP machines (APAPs) can adjust pressures automatically. They have sensors embedded that monitor your breathing. If your machine finds that you do not snore or stop breathing, it will automatically use a lower pressure. If it detects your sleep apnea, it will automatically increase the pressure until you are back to normal breathing. It will constantly keep the pressure levels within your personal ranges.
