New Design: DreamStation CPAP Pro
The DreamStation CPAP Pro is smaller and lighter than its predecessor, PRS1 460, and is all white with a color LCD Screen and light sensor on top. It has built-in Bluetooth to transfer your data via wireless to your healthcare provider or insurance company. Respironics made the control knob and buttons easy to navigate throughout the menu options. The Pro provides the comfort and technological advancements to ensure a results-driven therapy session paired with personalization you need. The Dreamstation Pro comes with humidifier and the option with or without heated tubing. It is an excellent choice to use as a travel machine.
C-Flex Plus combines the flow-based pressure relief at the beginning of exhalation like C-Flex. However C-Flex Plus also incorporates A-Flex technology, and softens the pressure transition that occurs from inhalation to exhalation. This ensures a far more comfortable experience in fixed-CPAP mode. C-Flex Plus includes 3 different transition settings which can be personalized to suit your needs.
The DreamStation Pro offers CPAP Mode - for fixed pressure with no changes or adjustments needed, and CPAP-Check (C-Check) Mode – delivers CPAP therapy wile automatically adjusting the pressure level to meet patient needs every 30 hours to give optimal therapy pressure. EZ-Start – reduces the therapy pressure setting for the first few days of operation and gradually increases this setting until the prescribed pressure is reached.
Resistance Control Technology was designed to maintain optimal pressure for any mask that is used with the DreamStation Pro. All Respironics CPAP masks include a numbering system that is based on variable resistance characteristics, which enables the DreamStation to compensate for different mask types. The result is a persistent and consistent pressure flow no matter what mask is used.
Humidity Control and Heated Tubing
The DreamStation Pro brings excellent humidity control with advanced technology that analyzes ambient temperature and airflow. The DreamStation is capable of automatically adjusting the humidity in your mask, to match your pre-selected humidity level. The heating tube actively works to reduce rainout and automatically adjusts the humidity in your mask, reducing discomfort and increasing the effectiveness of your therapy. The tubing 22mm/15mm (non-heated) tube or the 15mm heated tube is compatible with the DreamStation Humidifier. The Humidifier can be pre-heated 30 minutes prior to your therapy with a touch of a button.
Built-in Bluetooth Wireless Technology
You can pair the DreamStation Pro to a mobile device that has the DreamMapper app installed. DreamMapper is a mobile and web-based system designed to help patients enhance their sleep therapy experience. Note: The DreamStation can only be paired to no more than one mobile device – Smartphone, tablets, etc. If you have SleepMapper app on your device it will change to DreamMapper app.
