BiPAP Machine of The Year 2015
It’s been a while since we have heard about rumors of a new line machine called DreamStation by Philips Repironics about their new innovative design and technology. With the new front facing-display and easy to navigate menus, user LCD screen wide display and knob located on the edge of the machine make the DreamStation Auto BiPAP machine easier to navigate from bed.
DreamStation BiPAP Machine
The Philips DreamStation Auto BiPAP offers updated comfort features with a reduced sound level design to make pressure relief technologies operate more quietly. It improved humidity output with relatively humidity settings to deliver customized comfort while dramatically reducing rainout inside the tube. The enhanced filtration design which utilizes the reusable and ultra-fine disposable filter provides filtration that increases comfort with no impact on noise. Ease of use features include mask fit and seal monitoring to give users the ability to check the seal of their mask, easy night time viewing with a larger LCD screen, a redesigned dial knob on the side for easy navigation, built in Bluetooth and a phone app for easy data accessing and transferring, and multiple language options for the display.

Built-in Wireless Bluetooth Module
The DreamStstion BiPAP machine uses wireless built in Bluetooth module for easy access your therapy progress, with DreamMapper Apps is available to your phone or tablet through the DreamMapper.com website.
This feature allows your device to use your most recent sleep performance as an input to your next Auto-Bipap therapy session. The goal is to start your therapy closer to your adjusted pressure. This optional feature can be enabled or disable on the settings of the machine.
Bi-Flex,C-Flex and C-Flex+ Technology
Bi-flex Pressure relief technology offers pressure relief at inhalation and exhalation to make BiPAP therapy more like natural breathing. By tracking each breath, Bi-Flex pressure relief technology delivers pressure relief at three critical points in the breathing cycle, and the transition from exhalation to inhalation.
C-Flex: 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 user’s expiratory flow and which of the three C-Flex settings has been selected.
Bi-Flex is enable when the machine set to Bi-PAP Auto and C-Flex engage when CPAP mode.
Advance Event Detection
Built in device intelligence so that you can make the most informed decisions possible. The new DreamStation Auto BiPAP sleep system addresses advanced sleep assessment parameters including AHI, large leak, flow limitation and RERAs that help you determine appropriate clinical management of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
But the real advancement is its ability to point out when the user is experiencing symptoms beyond classic OSA. With intelligent technology that can identify clear airway apneas and periodic breathing, the system immediately indicates the potential need for specialized therapy. With the new system, all events can now be verified by looking at detailed user flow waveform data captured by the device.
Control achieves complete system comfort by enabling the device and mask to work optimally together. Through simple settings, the technology instructs the device to compensate for variable resistance characteristics related to different masks. The result is synchronous pressure delivery and the assurance users can enjoy the full benefits of our Flex comfort technologies no matter which Philips Respironics mask is used.
Wide LCD Screen Display
With bigger LCD screen ensures users will be able to see interface even in the dark with bigger dial knob for easy navigation, with a sensor is built-in on top of the machine to detect ambient light in the bedroom. It dims the screen in a dark environment and brightens it when you are in an area with ample ambient light.

Do not depend on dream station app for communication via cell phone to anywhere else due to non function of the app the machine does its job
First purchase with Respshop, though there were some hiccups but it was resolved quickly. Machine helps with sleep and is quiet when using at night. Helps with my sleep and greatly reduce times I woke up during midnight. Good product. Yet to try with the humidifier yet.
Excellent product. Best bipap I have ever owned. I really like the design , looks to me like a MacBook Pro compared to any other brand of laptop. A little big but it's really light
I have been using the DreamStation for about a year and it's been great. I sleep easy. I like the fact that it has two filters. I am also able to look at my information from the Dreamstation online, which is just neat. It's been very reliable, I have taken it to travel with me and no problems.
I have used the Dreamstation now for about 6 months, and I am on my second return. the first one developed a whining noise about 3 months after I received it. now the replacement has developed the same type of whine, this time about 2 months. It is very distracting and I cannot fall asleep. I am hoping the second replacement will not develop this issue. When it is new it the best. very quiet easy to use. I like the machine very much. Lets hope 3 times is a charm.
I am the new user of CPAP Machine. Thanks my friend to introduce the Dream Station Auto BiPAP with Humidifier to me. It is very quiet and very simple to use. It help me sleeping well.
