Dream Big

That is right, dream BIG!! Philips Respironics has done exactly that with the all new designed DreamStation Auto CPAP machine. Constantly moving forward with new innovations, this new Respironics DreamStation CPAP machine has done that and more!! By taking the overall success of the System One RemStar series, Respironics was able to parlay something fresh with an eye towards the future. Combining proven technology from the previous lineups and featuring new key enhancements will surely provide you the necessary therapy you need and deserve. This is what we like to call personalized treatment. The display on this machine is  full color and easy to see and understand with an ambient light and large navigation dial makes this machine very intuitive. 

Dream Efficiently
The concept of the DreamStation CPAP machine is to Dream Efficiently however that can sometimes be a difficult task to hurdle. With the Respironics DreamStation CPAP in use, you will have an encouraging peace of mind and many peaceful nights to look forward to. Philips Respironics DreamStation CPAP Machine embraces the idea of an amazing sleep session and to accomplish this it requires the use of their clinically proven algorithm that focuses strictly on the user thereby providing a comfortable, natural and effortless experience as sleep should be intended as(though in reality is like moving a mountain). This DreamStation device is an advanced Auto CPAP machine with the utilization of flex technology ensuring the airflow delivered will be the lowest amount needed while undertaking Sleep Apnea Therapy. By detecting whether more air is necessary during the course of sleep, optimal air will continue to flow no matter how deep the stage of sleep you are in. The end result entails a stabilized airway at all times allowing you the opportunity to keep dreaming.

Flex On
Bringing back an old goody in C-flex, You're comforted knowing you have three levels of relief. C-Flex technology not only provides optimal CPAP therapy at the lowest amount of pressure indicated, you will also receive effective sleep therapy minus the pressure and discomfort. The key point in gaining an edge on sleep discomfort is to decrease the pressure at the beginning of each breathe so that you are able to have low sustainable pressure as you exhale. By choosing between a pressure reduction of one, two, or three centimeters of pressure, this will allow the airstream to deliver a natural breathing process that is not forced. Your sleep is uninterrupted as the C-Flex will monitor each breath thus lowering the pressure on a breath by breath basis thereafter returning the settings back to normal pressure upon inhaling.

Humidifiers Intuitive Redesign
Philips Respironics has not only rejuvenated it's humidification system with the DreamStation, the re-invention is certainly evident as well. Along with the heated tube you'll enjoy a steady stream of warm air. The DreamStation in conjunction with Heated Tubing will optimize humidified air flow and reduce the overall possibility of rainout all the while protecting the machine from water damage. The all new DreamStation Humidifier allows you to select between two humidification modes: Adaptive and Fixed. The all new Adaptive mode adapts the heat plate temperature to the surrounding conditions in the room and outside creating an ambiance for you to enjoy. If you prefer to stay constant then the DreamStation has you covered as you can choose the Fixed Mode: allowing you to apply constant heat on the humidifier heated plate rather than adapt to the surroundings.

Optional Heated Tube
The DreamStation APAP comes with a standard 6 foot, 15mm hose or you can opt to get the heated hose for a little bit more. The heated hose gently warms the air which helps to keep water out of your tube preventing you from inhaling water. The DreamStation heated tube is 15 mm, the same as the standard tube, but the heated tube provides temperature control that allows you to select your preferred humidification level. The Philips Respironics tube is compatible with all masks. Tube Heating Setting is 0 – 5 with 5 being the highest level.
 

Key Features of the Heated Hose
  •  Additional Humidification Solution
  •  Flexible and comfort
  •  Rainout Protection
  •  Selected Level of Humidity
  •  One Click Connection

Opti-Start
An amazing feature to have, Opti-Start in the DreamStation CPAP machine has one goal in mind: Optimal pressure from the start. With the intention to improve your comfort this will decrease the likelihood of any apnea events from happening during the beginning of therapy. By starting your therapy session 90% closer to your previous therapy session you won't have to worry about any residual events from happening. Don't like this feature? No worries, you can enable or disable this feature if it doesn't work out for you.

Personal Coach
Engaging with the user, the personalized coaching tools in the Philips DreamStation empowers the user to embrace their care with confidence while being able to connect users seamlessly with their care team resulting in ideal therapy management. Your device provides a summary regarding your therapy use each time the device is turned off. You will see a Three Night Summary which shoes your nightly usage in the last 3 sleep sessions. The second screen will display the total number of times you have slept for 4+ hours in the last 30 days all the while providing you a goal for you to reach every 30 days. 21 goods nights of sleep is the way to go.

Resistance Controlled
Your DreamStation Auto CPAP will automatically adjust pressure dependent upon the mask so that a constant pressure will be delivered to your mask that will optimize the performance and reduce discomfort during use. Respironics algorithm was created to detect the resistance of all types of CPAP masks and will automatically adjust, even if you were to purchase and use a new kind of mask so that your pressure at the mask is always at its peak performance level.

The DreamStation CPAP line by Philips Respironics is an industry front runner. The intuitive menus and user friendly design make this the perfect machine for any person. The humidifier chamber is easy to open and remove making it more accessible than some of its counterparts. The double air filtration design both keeps the air you breathe nice and clean and also keeps the machine nice and quiet over the life of the machine. In addition to the on screen sleep report, the DreamMapper app connects via bluetooth to allow patients to track their own therapy as well as to send compliance reports to their doctors, DoT, or even to themselves. The machine is among the quietest on the market and offers a wide range of comfort features including pressure flex, adaptive humidification, and adjustable hose temperature on the heated hose. The humidifier even comes off to reduce the size of the machine for travel when paired with the Medistrom Pilot 12 battery making this the most versatile and user friendly machine around.

I have had this machine for about a year now and have been very happy with it. I have had both the ResMed auto CPAP machine and this one and they are both very nice. This machine has a nice user interface and is easy to get into the menus. The great thing about this machine is that the water chamber for the humidifier is completely removable and can be put in the dishwasher (the ResMed doesn't work that way). To be fair, this machine makes a humming noise when it is running. It's not bad, but is noticeable. If it's right next to your head, it may bother you. If it's down and away from your head, you probably won't notice. I have both the regular tubing and the heated tubing and they both work well. The heated tubing works nicely when the weather is cold. There are 2 filters: 1 is removable and you can rinse it clean. The 2nd is replaceable and it comes with several of them. Some people who have left reviews are complaining about certain things with this machine but don't seem to realize that these setting can be adjusted. This is an auto CPAP machine so it has a "ramp" feature and it can be adjusted. It is automatically set to ramp to the highest setting, but it can be changed. This machine isn't small but isn't huge, either. The technology within this machine is very impressive.

I'I have had my DreamStation Auto CPAP with humidifier for about a year now and am very satisfied with it. I previously owned 3 different RemStars, including a BiPAP version. The DreamStation has been quiet and durable for me. I use it religiously every night. The auto pressure feature has helped me by keeping the pressure as low as possible while still letting me sleep properly. Exhale relief has been very good without the shuddering I got with some of the RemStars. I rarely put water in the humidifier, using it only when we have a very dry condition. Even then, I only put water in it - I don't turn the heat on. Living in So. California, it is sufficient for my needs. We don't get really cold nights, so puddling isn't an issue for me. I find loading the water is a bit of a pain, but not really a problem. I have used the unit without the humidifier attached and there is some increase in noise, so I usually leave the humidifier attached. It is very quiet in normal use. I travel frequently for work and the DreamStation has held up to the travel well. It takes up much less room than the RemStar units. When I am really stretched for space, I leave the humidifier home. The base unit is quite small by itself. I find this to be a good unit for the money.

I'I am a new user to CPAP and I was prescribed this machine. I have had no problems as of right now. The communication between iOS also my desktop has been great and helpful. The machine itself is not an eyesore and is super quiet. The humidifier is beyond helpful and makes wearing this much less noticeable. I also enjoy that I have the cell card installed so my doctor can view and/or make changes from their end.

Why do you need a heated CPAP hose?

Review By Anne G. RPSGT, RST
Registered Sleep Therapist
Registered Polysomnographic Technologist for Respshop
Contact Anne@respshop.com

The main reason for a heated hose is to avoid moisture build up in the CPAP tube.
If you use a fan at night or if your bed is near a window, sometimes the moisture from the humidifier can condense and pool in the hose before it gets to your airway.
When this happens, it can wake you up by creating a loud popping sound as the air blows past the water, and in some cases can cause what we refer to as "rain out" where the water starts to splash on to your face or pour in to your nose.
The heated hose insulates the air from the cooler temperatures in your room to avoid this.
You can also adjust the heat in the hose for your comfort making this a great option to the standard hose!

I am VERY pleased with the Philips Respironics Dream Station! This is made right here in Pennsylvania, USA 🇺🇸. My doctor recommended this unit for my needs. The unit is very simple to use. I like the easy to read display. Another feature of this machine is that I no longer have to travel to the crowded city which is an hour and a half away to see my doctor for cpap evaluations. This is because my physician can download my sleep data via the wi-fi, and also adjust the machine remotely if needed.
My insurance wanted me to lease a machine through a medical supply service in our area. The monthly rental charges were outrageous. Over the next 5 years, this service was going to cost me $2604 out of my pocket. Plus, the medical supply service would not provide the Philips Respironics unit that my doctor had prescribed. They were going to substitute a different machine that was bulkier in size, it did not have the same features I wanted, and it was not made in Pennsylvania.
My wife went onto the Philips Respironics website. There, the Philips company provided a direct link to the Respshop.com to purchase their cpap machine and supplies for it. We were amazed at how affordable the sale price was at Respshop compared to other online vendors. It was a “no-brainer� for me to buy the machine myself and not get suckered into the lease contract from the area medical supplier. My wife called Respshop to verify that the machine was new and not reconditioned. The representatives were pleasant, easy to understand and welcomed the questions that my wife and I both had. That evening, I placed the order for the brand new machine along with a new mask and filters. They said that shipping was free and my order would arrive at my house the next day. I faxed the doctor’s Rx and Respshop pre-programmed the unit before shipping it. I was surprised that I received updates within the first hour after placing the order that the unit had already been packaged and shipped out via FedEx Priority. I received my new cpap at 1:00 in the afternoon the following day! THANK YOU! I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED RESPHOP TO ALL CPAP PATIENTS.

I have been a CPAP user for over 15 years. I had to get a new machine due to obsolescence of my original machine. The only machine my provider carries is the DeamStation. I am very disappointed with the humidifier on this machine. For a large percentage of the time the humidifier makes a high pitched whine. I assume it is some kind of air leak. I know it is coming from the humidifier because if i connect directly to the CPAP I don't hear this noise. The noise is loud enough that it wakes my wife up and keeps me from sleeping. I returned the unit to my device supplier. They confirmed the noise and replaced the humidifier yesterday. The new humidifier worked fine for about the first hour but then it too developed the whine. The representative at the my supplier said they have heard the complaint from other clients so I assume this is a generic problem with this machine. I have also seen some similar complaints of this nature on the web. I feel stuck with this device. I was going to change suppliers and get a different brand of machine but Medicare says I have to redo my sleep study which was just done a month ago to get a different machine. I'm on fixed income and don't want to have to pay for another sleep study.

Doesn't run on my battery for camping, like I was promised. Also was told it would run and adjust to normal pressure without the humidifier installed, totally false. This thing does work, but is worthless for camping. But hey, lied their asses off to sell me their piece of craft cap. This is junk.

Hi, I am so sorry this did not work for you. Unfortunately we could not possibly know if it would work on your battery set-up which is why we do sell a battery for this machine. The Humidifier is an optional feature to add moisture and won't change your pressure but it will deplete your battery time.
This is the battery that we can recommend: https://www.respshop.com/cpap-supplies/battery-power/medistrom-backup-power-supply-cpap-battery-pilot-lite-p-1222.html

I'm having issues with my dreamstation since I got it in October 2016. No luck with humidity settings.
I'm about the return the whole thing or toss it outside in the snow.
Fixed setting #1 has no humidity
Fixed setting #2 floods the tube and then wakes me up. Water in the mask also after 2-3hrs of use.
Adaptive settings up to #5 supplies no humidity. Get severe dry mouth after 3+hrs of use. Can go days without seeing any water being used in the reservoir with using it 3-4hrs each night.

A month ago supply company replaced the reservoir assuming it wasn't heating properly and gave me a heated tube.
Heated tubing seems to activate the adaptive settings and I still get severe dry mouth at humidity setting #5, even when turning tube heat to 0.

Subject: breaks easily
I am on my second machine. They both broke by me simply unplugging the machine and moving it to another room in my house. Both time I got an alert saying my power supply was incorrect. The first time I bought a new power supply, but it still got the same message. So like a dummy I bought a new one. Had a year and moved it one night because I painted the bedroom and didn't want to smell the paint fumes all night. Walk from one bedroom to another plugged it in and now it won't work.

Hi Thomas
I'm very sorry to hear your machine keeps breaking on you! Just so you know these issues are typically covered under the warranty. Feel free to reach out to us and we can file a warranty claim on your behalf. 1-866-936-3754

The plastic water chamber of the humidifier is thinner than that of PR System One DS560 REMstar. The control wheel is bigger but harder to press. The cover of the humidifier is easy for cleaning but the design of it should be further improved to enable more convenient opening by disable person with one hand. The size is still big, it should be re-designed to become more compact and portable. When there is a large pressure drop at the air delivery side, the reaction of the CPAP alarm system is still slow. It should also be further improved to enable an independent alarm for rapid caution against persistent large pressure drop of below the user's min. pressure setting of his own CPAP.

#632399 The product in Taiwan has been successfully received and is in normal use. In my country, the government must apply for permission to purchase it. Therefore, I am very happy to receive a cheap and good product, but it is stated that the machine should be adjusted to AUTO CPAP when purchasing. 6~15, the product currently received is still the default AUTO CPAP 4~20, the air pressure adjustment item "Ramp" is locked, and I cannot adjust it by myself. The problem is that my doctor will use the prescription pressure under the machine data in the future I can't adjust, can I open my adjustment item "Ramp"? Machine number: J28452012872A

Question
Following up on question: Can I use all the accessories from a ResMed CPAP machine (i.e. hoses, masks, etc.)? (Asked on 03/18/2021)
A: Yes you can. The only item that is machine specific is the heated tubing due to the connection.
Question: what do you mean heated tube is machine specific due to connection ? Does machine need to be ordered with heated tubing (not the feature capability) ?Can existing heated tube be used ?
Answer
The only type of heated tubing compatible with the ResMed AirSense 10 is the ClimateLineAir tubing (SKU# 37296). So long as you have that, it will work with the Airsense 10; it doesn't need to be purchased with the machine, it can be purchased separately.

Question
Is a prescription necessary to purchase one of the new Auto CPAP units?
Answer
Yes, we require a prescription for all CPAP purchases.
Question
How do I get it past a 5 pressure
Answer
This is an Auto machine. The 5 you are seeing is the minimum pressure and there is a maximum pressure of 20 probably set as well. The machine automatically provides the correct pressure to you from the range of 5 -20cmH20. If you wish to learn how to adjust your pressures, go to Youtube and search Respshop and you will see our videos on how to change settings.
