APEX XT Fit Single-Pressure CPAP Machine (Humidifier optional)
The APEX XT Fit is a perfect travel CPAP due to its lightweight and palm-sized design. While smaller in stature than other single-pressure CPAP machines in its class, the XT Fit is built to perform at the levels you have grown accustomed to with larger CPAP machines, making it an excellent alternative to larger machines for on-the-go CPAP users. This machine will help fall asleep and get your sleep apnea treatment anywhere on the globe.
Built-In Power Supply Brick
All models of the APEX XT come with a built-in power supply brick that essentially eliminates extra machine parts. This allows the machine to only require a simple power cord and remain compact and easy to travel with. In order to power the machine you must have it plugged in at all times. The APEX XT Fit can easily be stored in a carry-on bag without having to worry about the amount of space it takes up. The power supply is universal and will work internationally as well as domestically. For international travel, however, you will need an outlet adapter in order for it to operate.
The XT Fit is equipped with an LED screen that is clear to read even in darkness. The user interface is intuitive and easy to use, making changing your settings or reading your information quick and painless.
Weighing under two pounds and with a built in power supply brick, the APEX XT Fit is one of the lightest and smallest manual travel CPAP machines on the market. The XT Fit is FAA approved, making it easy to carry on a plane. The minimal, palm-sized design lessens the stress of traveling with bulkier CPAP machines and takes up less room than other larger and heavier machines in its class. It also comes with a bag which will easily hold all needed machine parts along with your mask and tubing.
Optional APEX Medical XT Fit Heated Humidifier
The XT Fit Humidifier is designed to be the perfect CPAP companion. Used in conjunction with the APEX CPAP machine, the humidifier can add a bit of bulk to the overall machine size, but it packs the same punch that you would expect from larger CPAP machines. APEX has developed a great alternative for those who need a travel friendly but effective CPAP device.
The heated humidifier reduces the irritation commonly associated with CPAP therapy. Traditional CPAP devices can cause irritation of the throat and nasal passages, but humidified air can eliminate dryness. The humidifier will provide a minimum of 8 hours of humidification every night. APEX has vigorously tested the humidifier and determined that you can reliably expect 8 hours minimum for a full water chamber.

For use in other countries, however, you may need a plug adaptor. You can purchase an inexpensive plug adaptor, but just remember to bring it with you whenever you travel. The machine is under two pounds, making it one of the most convenient traveling CPAP machines available!
Note: The included Travel bag for the machine only (SF01101) is smaller than the Travel bag for the machine with humidifier (SC01101).
Please note: 2-year warranty is voided by water damage/misuse of the machine.
Introducing the APEX XT Series Travel CPAP Machines!
How often should I replace the filters?
The gray filters in all APEX XT models are washable and reusable. They should be cleaned at least once every two weeks, but more frequently in extreme temperatures or in dusty areas. In general, you should replace the filters every six months if you are keeping up with maintenance. Pay close attention to your filters and replace them if you think they are wearing down so that you can be sure that your APEX is performing at its optimum levels.
Is the APEX XT line DC capable?
No, the XT line is only AC compatible.
Can the device be powered by a battery or a car adapter?
The XT series CPAP system doesn’t have DC capability so it can’t be powered by a battery or a car adapter. However, it can be used with a DC to AC inverter (only the CPAP machine, not the heated humidifier).
Does the Apex XT Fit record compliance data?
How can I remove this plastic smell coming from the included tubing?
The smell will disappear with use, but if it is really bothersome, let the machine run for several hours. The plastic smell will go away over time.
Is the XT Fit supposed to be this loud?
Many people have reported that this product makes noises that are far louder than it should be. This machine itself should be around 28 dBA, but there are many factors that may be causing abnormally loud noises. Most of the noise you hear is from the air traveling from the machine to you, and back, and there are a number of possible reasons why extra noises can be heard. In general, if it is a high-pitched whistling sound, it is likely due to a small leak somewhere where air is escaping through. This can be from clogged filters, mask fit, loose tube connections, or clogged/sticky tubing.
- Clogged Filters: Check your filter on the back of the machine for any dirt or clogging. Even if it looks clean, try washing it since there could be fine dust particles or some other imperceptible materials clogging the filter.
- Mask/Mask Fit: A leak or a sticky valve can often be the cause of the loud noise. The easiest way to tell if your mask is the problem is by trying the machine with a different mask. If that option is not available, clean your mask using hot water and let it air dry. Then, check the surfaces for any scratches or damage. Make sure the mask is firmly connected to the tubing and see if the sound persists.
- Tubing: Do a similar check/test with your tubing, and make sure that both ends of the tube are securely in place.
If this does not resolve your problems, try to determine when the sound occurs during your breathing cycle. The easiest way to tell is by using the mask. Inhale, pause for two seconds, exhale, then pause for two seconds. Repeat several times to see exactly when the sound occurs.
If the sound was when you inhale or exhale, there likely is a leak somewhere. Try adjusting your mask and see if there are any differences with the test. If the sound occurs at pauses during your breathing and all air passage connections are secure, it may be a faulty unit. Please contact us for machine evaluation.

Subject: Apex CPAP with humidifier
This is my second Apex Cpap. I purchased the first one without a humidifier a few years ago to use as a travel machine and it does the job. I purchased the second one with a humidifier for home use to replace brand Xs recall unit. I am very satisfied with this purchase. I will say the water fill requires a funnel, due to small hole vs. Brand X unit.
Subject: Great machine
I have three of these now for use at various locations when visiting (parents, kids, etc). Bought the first machine 7 years ago and it still works perfectly. The machine itself is totally silent. The only sound is the noise of the airflow at the mask. I find the white noise helps cover up other sounds that would wake me up. There are two downsides to the cpap. The first is that I sleep so soundly that I’m wide awake after about 6 hours which is usually 4 or 5AM. The second is that I’m dependent on the machine for a good sleep. Without it I’m constantly waking up with snoring or apnea. BTW my wife can’t sleep with me when I don’t use the machine because of my snoring.
Love this small CPAP, easy to adjust and replaces my large old unit.
I've used this cpap for more than two years now. It's been a sturdy, lightweight, and dependable companion on several trips. It's a terrific device.
I bought this machine to take with me when I travel. I have tried it with my regular nasal mask and with the new nasal pillow mask. The machine has great air pressure. However, it doesn't matter which mask I use, there is a lot of noise and it takes me longer to fall asleep because of the noise. And the noise is not coming from the machine, it is at the mask area. It sounds like a vacuum cleaner is running in the room when you breathe out. There is a whistling noise when you breathe in. Additionally, you have to unplug the machine to turn it off and the light on the LCD window never goes off. So there is always an amber glow in the bedroom when you are using the machine.
This the second unit I have purchased from you. I use it for travel, I like that it has the power supply built in, so no misleading size questions, and extra bulky heavy power supplies. Again its my second, I gave my first to my son to eliminate his snoring and to stay married. It worked and he has gone in for his sleep study and gotten his own unit and uses my original as his travel machine. The APEX unit is quiet enough for me, easy to use, and reliable.
Great price and product , Very fast delivery. Would encourage any one looking for a travel CPAP , to get this one.
Small machine as ordered. My regular oxygen people were glad to set it. Good value
the delivery was fast and the machine is light and user friendly
Decent little machine. I purchased it as a travel unit because I don't want to haul my ResMed around on vacation this year. I have used it once so far and it works well. Pros and Cons:
Pros: Respshop set this up with my sleep settings when I sent in my prescription so it was plug in and go. Very easy. The air flow was what I was used to and it kept my airway open - which is the goal.
Cons: It is noisier than I am used to. I was able to sleep and I am sure I will adapt but if I was someone who needed absolute quiet to sleep this machine would not be optimal. Since I am used to sleeping with a fan on I can handle the noise but wonder how my husband and kids will handle it when we are together in a tent when camping. The hose that came with was very cheep and had a very bad plastic smell. I have ordered a ResMed hose and will use that next time. The display light doesn't go out so far as I could tell which is very bothersome on a machine you use in a dark bedroom. I had to cover it up with a towel.
In summary, it is a decent machine and I would say a good value for the cost.
Great little machine. I had to watch a YouTube video to learn how to change the settings, but once I did that the machine worked as advertised. Note to manufacturer. It would help if your instructions were more definitive.
I have just now placed the order for one machine, tube and full face mask, but i only noticed in the receipt that it was a Taiwan made...it is not mentioned anywhere if i am correct.....anyway its not a issue unless it works fine and the price is good.....hope the size would be handy too.... i bought this as a stand-by just in case if my current one fails and thinking easy to travel with. I am using a RasMed auto type with a adaptable humidifier for the past 8 yrs without any issue and i had never combined the humidifier since i had no necessity. waiting for the delivery in 6 days
This little guy is very nice and I find it very easy to travel with ... however, it does not give the power that the other RemStar that I have.
No real issues, just power not as forceful.
For my first experience with a cpap this was a great machine. Very easy to use and understand. I have used it three times to travel since buying it six months ago. I have used it in a semi as I went with a week long travel with my husband and was perfect to sit by the bedside along with in hotels my last two trips. Very pleased with my purchase. However, I kick myself for not going up and getting one with a humidifier because there are a lot of nights I can't use it to being congested or here lately it has been in my chest due to allergies. Definitely going to see about it next.
Not as smalll as I thought it would be for a travel unit, but you can't beat the price.
This is such a handy little machine for traveling. It came with a nifty carrying case that I won't be able to use on my trip to Italy (only taking carry on) but will use on future car or train trips. It fit surprisingly well into my tiny carryon bag, though, and will help me tremendously during the 3 weeks of the trip.
Getting used to it is another story. The first night wasn't too bad, but the next two were awful. My brain focused on a pumping sound that is similar to that of a motorcycle revving up. Though very muted it was persistent and wouldn't leave my consciousness. Determined to make this work, I decided to wear noise canceling head phones and listen to an audio book (which I usually do, but without headphones) that is set to turn off after half an hour. Although I look like some creature from outer space with all this head gear, hoses and chin strap, it WORKS. For two nights in a row now. Fingers crossed. At least my granddaughter, who's 14 and traveling with me, shouldn't have to deal with my sleep apnea turning off grandma's switch in a foreign country.
Great little machine, especially for the money. Very quiet and light weight. I use it full time. Just wish I could turn the light off.
Bought this machine recently and used it on a 10-day trip. It worked well as my regular machine. I love it.
Forgot to add to my previous reply.
My only concern was the Postage Charges.
Very expensive, I live in Australia.
Nearly a third the cost of the CPAP Machine.
Brand new purchase, have just had set up and used for the first time.
Great little compact CPAP for everyday use and travelling.
intend using for my travels being so Light and Compact.
So far, so good. +++
Can't change the flow rate from 4.0. How do you trun off the display light when not in use? Not crazy about the mask that came with it! I have another cpap machine with a nasal pillow type, which is much more comfortable.
Recently purchased this little machine and I'm impressed with how easy it was to set up and it's so quiet. The base model is fantastic and does what it says it does. Also so pleased to receive a lovely travel bag for machine and mask etc. Certainly value for money with this model.
Love it, smaller and easier to carry on airlines, still gets the job done! A little worried when the book said you had to get a professional to set the pressure and my regular CPAP machine company lady couldn't do it, came home and looked it up online and followed those steps and set it real easy by myself!
Just what I needed for travel.
Much lighter weight and easier to pack.
Glad I found out about it!
This machine is every bit as advertised. It's small, light, compact and very easy to set up the various settings. I will primarily use this machine for my frequent business travels as it takes very little space in a carry on. The hose and mask set that came with the machine was also very good quality. I also like the very responsive customer service of Respshop who answered a question I had prior to the producteven arriving on my doorstep.
I got this as my back up machine and, at the same time, as my travel machine. This site offers the best price. The size, weight and footprint of this unit is fantastic! I just have to mention that I did hear some whirling sound (a very faint one though) from the machine when using low pressure(s) but it disappears and the noise transfers to the tube in and during high pressure(s). Be that as it may, you can't go wrong its price. Bang for the buck indeed!
Have just received mine and used it for two nights now.I find it very noisy when you exhale.My Fisher and Pykle machine is so quiet in comparison.The mask that comes with as part of the deal needs to be cranked onto your face to stop it leaking. I think i would recommend a friend to spend a bit more and get a more up market model.Due to living on the other side of the world i will have to live with this one.
I love this machine. It is super quiet and does what is supposed to do. Yes, the humidifier does add size and weight, I think any humidifier will do that. The price is right.
I like this machine, and would recommend it **IF** you don't need a humidifier to sleep. The humidifier is practically the weight of the machine, and doubles it's footprint! I have done three trips with this machine without the humidifier (because I couldn't fit it all in my carry on), and it was very quiet and fit well on the hotel nightstands, BUT I woke up after a couple hours with dry sinuses and a sore throat. That doesn't happen when I use the humidifier (either with this machine or my primary machine.)
I was uneasy buying an inexpensive CPAP online. I am traveling a lot and lugging my heavy home machine is a hassle. I was pleasantly surprised, this machine does exactly what I needed it to do and is a breeze getting through TSA. It is quiet and just for a day or two I can do without my humidifier. Knowing what I know now, I would purchase this again in a heartbeat. Even if you don't travel this would make a great emergency backup and the price is right!
I purchased this unit to keep in my camper and use on motorcycle rides. Very quiet operation and I am truly satisfied with this unit.
Love this machine just got it a week ago you can't even hear it run which is an awesome feature. Very light and love the travel bag it came with, very happy with the quality and price.
Excellent machine and a real value at this price. Works as well for me as any machine I've had over my 17 years of using a cpap.
Have used it with 3 different masks and works well with all of them..Quiet, small in size, detachable power cord is a big plus...will travel with it in the future. Overall a great little machine
very glad to get it. mine had been broken for several weeks, and really needed to catch up on my sleep. works very well.
The XT Fit CPAP machine is a surprisingly a very capable machine. Given that it is the cheapest model I find that it is very quiet compared to other machines I have used over the past 15 years. I love the new technology and It is compact and together with the heated humidifier it travels easily compared to my normal use machine.. I recommend to anybody looking for a machine.
This machine was not the best machine in my opinion. I got this machine because I needed a compact machine when traveling but it is really not the greatest quality, Could be better.
Wish it had pressure relief. I think the other apex ones do. This one is good for the price. Probably should have paid extra for the pressure relief so it was like my resmed. Still good as a small basic machine when I'm on vacation.
This product is great, it does everything it is supposed to. It is a standard cpap, however for me that's just fine, with it being so light weight and easy to carry around, for travel purposes it comes in handy. A plus is the power cord, there is no bulky adapter, it is built in the machine, which means less weight to carry in the suitcase!
