ResMed S9 Elite with EPR
The S9 Elite is a comprehensive CPAP device that aims to provide quality performance and comfort in a sleek package. EPR and Easy-Breathe technology provide breathing comfort by lowering the pressure on exhalation to create a natural breathing environment. The S9 Elite brings several customization options to the table with unique CPAP tubes like the ClimateLine or SlimLine, that seek to offer you unmatched personalization. Innovative technology paired with customizability put the S9 Elite above the competition.
Expiratory Pressure Relief
EPR is designed to reduce pressure at the inception of each breath to keep the pressure low throughout exhalation. EPR is able to reduce pressure by an exact reduction of 1, 2, and 3 centimeters of water pressure. The S9 with EPR is able to progressively alter pressure so there is little ventilatory effect. Event Detection Circuit is able to detect when a disordered breathing event goes longer than 10 seconds, and responds by stopping EPR until the conclusion of the event. Once normal breathing is resumed EPR will pick up and continue to provide pressure relief. EPR also actively works with Easy-Breathe technology to enable you to customize your RAMP feature. You can set the S9 Elite to EPR RAMP ONLY mode in order to ensure a comfortable experience and to assist in the improvement of compliance. Due to the fact you will be more aware of pressure changes as you fall asleep, you can rest easier knowing pressure relief during the ramp period creates a natural process.
EPR with Easy-Breathe Technology
Easy-Breathe monitors your breathing pattern to soften the breathing cycle during your CPAP therapy. In conjunction with EPR, Easy-Breathe synchronizes your inspiratory and expiratory cycle improving comfort during your CPAP therapy. A smoother and more natural pressure delivery significantly reduces the noise generated from the motor during operation. The S9 is able to operate at 24dBA when set to 10cm of pressure at a distance of 1 meter with Easy-Breath technology. The overall reduction in noise from the motor means no more motor whining or noise through the CPAP tube.
SlimLine and (Optional) ClimateLine Tubing
ResMed includes the standard SlimeLine Tubing for the S9 Elite that actively reduces tube drag and provides far more flexibility then a standard CPAP tube. The SlimeLine tube has a smaller diameter comparatively to a normal CPAP tube in order to reduce bulkiness and improve flexibility. ResMed also offers ClimateLine Tubing that provides heated air via a heated coil that has a mask temperature sensor which manages rainout in the hose. Climate Control utilizes complex algorithms that measure temperature from the humidifier to prevent condensation.
SmartStart/SmartStop is able to accurately determine when you start or stop breathing into your mask, and will turn the S9 Elite on or off accordingly.
Enhanced Easy-Breathe Motor
The Enhanced Easy-Breathe motor creates an axial airflow that is dispersed evenly throughout the motor reducing noise significantly. This unique technology results in a noise no louder than normal breathing ensuring a quiet night of sleep and comfort for you.
Optional H5i Heated Humidifier & ClimateLine Tubing
ResMed S9 Climate Controlled Heated Humidifier for Superior Comfort
Created to reduce potential nasal congestion and dry mouth, the ResMed S9 H5i Heated Humidifier is available as an attachable add on for the ResMed S9 CPAP device in order to provide bonus comfort and superior performance.
Using the ResMed ClimateLine technology, the S9 H5i Heated Humidifier has a unique climate control system that tracks airflow and the surrounding temperature in the room to adjust the humidity accordingly to provide the best relief. Managing the humidity in the CPAP device, the S9 H5i can effectively eliminate condensation from forming inside the tube, eliminating the threat of rainout in the mask resulting in superior comfort.
Two tubing options available
The ResMed S9 H5i Heated Humidifier has two different tubing options available to allow the owner to choose whichever best fits their needs. The SlimLine tubing is lightweight and flexible which reduces potential mask drag and increases comfort.
Heated tubing in the form of the ClimateLine model is available for customers who prefer heated tubing. With its temperature sensor attached at the mask side, the ClimateLine Heated Tubing manages condensation inside the tube and mask area and helps eliminate excess condensation that can cause discomfort.
Is the water tub dishwasher safe?
While we recommend cleaning the water tub regularly, it is not dishwasher safe. Hand cleaning with warm water and a mild detergent, while using distilled water over tap water, will help you preserve life and reduce damage to the tub.
Are there heated tubing options available so I can minimize the moisture in my tube and mask?
Yes, you can find the ClimateLine Tubing for sale for those who prefer to have heated tubing. Like the standard SlimLine tubing, the ClimateLine tubing is lightweight and flexible and has a temperature sensor to manage the condensation levels to help prevent rainout.

The Elite S9 is incredibly portable and perfect if you travel frequently. The humidifier can be detached for the main CPAP device, and placed separately in your travel bag. The removal process is simple and easy so you can take your S9 Elite wherever you need to go.
Connecting ClimateLine Tubing to ResMed S9 Escape Elite
Will I still have the full flexibility that I had with other tubing?
ClimateLine improves upon the standard CPAP tube with greater flexibility paired with a lighter weight. You will have less tube drag during your CPAP therapy guaranteeing your freedom to move comfortably during your sleep apnea therapy.
What's the easiest way to clean my tube and prevent any moisture build up?
We recommend hanging the tube up in a dry area daily, but in order to fully remove any foreign material from inside the tube you should look into purchasing a Stainless Stem CPAP Tube Brush. The brush allows you to scrub the inside of your tube with minimal effort, increasing the tubes lifespan and benefiting your health.
