Respironics DreamStation CPAP Pro with Humidifier
The DreamStation CPAP Pro is smaller and lighter than its predecessor, the System One REMstar Pro 460. In terms of looks, the main color of the machine is now white, and it is equipped 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 menu navigation simpler with the control knob and buttons. The Pro provides the comfort and technological advancements to ensure a results-driven therapy session paired with the personalization you need. This machine comes with a humidifier and the option with or without heated tubing (the option without the humidifier is here). It is an excellent choice to use as a travel machine.
C-Flex Plus includes flow-based pressure relief at the beginning of exhalation like the original C-Flex. However, C-Flex Plus also incorporates A-Flex technology which 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 while automatically adjusting the pressure level to meet user 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 (OPTIONAL)
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 preselected 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 22/15 mm (non-heated) tube or the 15 mm heated tube is compatible with the DreamStation Humidifier. The Humidifier can be preheated 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 users enhance their sleep therapy experience. Note: The DreamStation can only be paired to one mobile device – Smartphone, tablet, etc. If you have the SleepMapper app on your device it will change to the DreamMapper app.
Steps for pairing the DreamStation to your Smartphone or Tablet
- Bluetooth setting will be enabled on your mobile device.
- "PR BT XXXX" will appear on the Bluetooth screen of your DreamStation CPAP device; (XXXX will be the last four digits of the serial number of your DreamStation)
- Begin pairing from your mobile device with the DreamStation powered up and the blower turned off.
- When your mobile device is in range of the DreamStation CPAP, one of the following applies:
- Your mobile device has Secure Simple Pairing (SSP).
- Your mobile device does not support Bluetooth SSP.
- Use the dial knob to choose "yes" or "no". Once "yes" is chosen, the DreamStation device will acknowledge the passkey.
- When your mobile device acknowledges the pairing request, both your mobile device and the DreamStation CPAP will be paired and ready to connect using DreamMapper.
C-Flex Plus Technology - Combines C-Flex and A-Flex technology to provide increased comfort and compliance DreamStation
Humidity Control - Ensures excellent humidity control by analyzing ambient temperature and airflow
Resistance Control - Utilizes a unique mask numbering system that enables DreamStation to compensate for different mask types

How often do I need to change my filters?
Filters are a critical part of your CPAP therapy and need to be cleaned routinely. It is recommended that disposable filters are replaced every 6 to 12 weeks. On the other hand, cleanable filters should be washed weekly and replaced every 6 months. Disposable and reusable filters are both available for purchase on our website.
Why is the mask alert feature not working?
Make sure the mask alert feature is set to ON. Be aware that certain masks will not work with this feature; however, mask alerts should not affect the performance of the DreamStation Pro.

The DreamStation comes with a standard 80W power supply.

I can only give my machine two stars for speedy arrival... Unfortunately, my experience with the machine has been horrible. I can only sleep for 3 to 4 hours if that long. I wake up with an EXTREMELY dry mouth. It so bad it makes me feel like I am suffocating. Upon the arrival of my machine, it was already set to 4 humidity and then after the first three days of dry mouth moved it up to the highest setting which is 5 and it was worse. I got up researched why and could not find a viable solution to stopping my mouth from being so dry. If anyone has any suggestions I am all for it but right now I am not happy with my machine because I had to stop using it because it was causing my mouth and teeth to hurt. PLEASE HELP!!!! Cause I know there has to be a solution I have been without my machine for so long and now that I finally got it I still can't use it...

Love my new CPAP model DSX500H11 philips respironics dream station auto machine with humidifier. And great price. It gives you all your information at your fingertips. I had my old Philips machine for around 18 years and did it’s job.,the only reason I replaced it was because the humidifier stopped working. The company respshop was great to work with and even called me so they could set up the pressure. But found it very easy to get into settings and set it up if need. But if need help with settings you can always go to UTube and it will show you step by set how to maneuver through the settings.
Not a good machine. Built very cheaply. Plastic hinges, plastic connectors, plastic clasps. Poor sleep quality wit the Respironics . Was mis lead about what I was buying. Bought over phone due to covid . Resmed is much better. I had a resmed before and was very happy .Make sure you see one before you buy one. Noisy . The cpap shop would not take it back or exchange it.
Hi, I am sorry you were not happy. Please keep in mind that we are NOT The Cpap Shop. We do, however, have knowledge sales staff at Respshop to assist you in making the best choice for you!
Junk! Our machine is 18 months old, programed as a bipap and with settings 12/5, and the stupid thing is currently stuck on the 5, and the company says its the mask. So I purchased a new one, identical to his initial set up, and no change. So JUNK! JUNK! AND MORE JUNK! STAY AWAY FROM THIS JUNK! And the manufacturer wont help
Hi, I am so sorry you don't like your machine. I was not able to find an order for you though our company RESPSHOP.COM
You may want to reach out to the company you purchased it from.
Subject: My humidifier air gets too hot
I don't have any problems with my machine but I wear the mask and my pressure is set at 14, it was 16 but the doctor lowered it because it was affecting my eyes it was so strong. My only problem is I wake up sweaty at the back of my head and neck and the air gets too warm for me. How do I turn the air from the water to keep it cool?? If there's water left in the chamber in the morning, it is usually warm to hot. I'm hot natured and this is making me uncomfortable. Otherwise I love my machine and it is very quiet.. Thank you.
This machine replaced a 12 year old Repironics System One.
The old unit was OK, and seemed pretty quiet, until I started using the Dream Station, WOW!
This new machine is so quiet, I honestly can’t hear it running!
And the programming is super easy.
I’ve read some have dry mouth using a CPAP machine, I’ve had that issue myself, especially during the winter.
When that happens, I use Oracoat XyliMelts, they’re a real life saver!
I’ve had my machine for 3 years and have not had one issue. I didn’t like the face mask so I use the nose piece. Also keeps me from being a mouth breather. The reservoir works well for me and I set it on 2. I keep my machine low to the floor so that the humidity doesn’t build up in my nose piece. Very easy to maintain and keep clean. It has been a game changer for me and my wife loves it too(no more snoring).
Just got the machine and it's humming. It hums all night. My husband got one as well, and it hums also. What's that about?
Thank you for reaching out to us! I was not able to find an order for you from Respshop. You may want to contact the company you purchased from for some guidance. I would suggest to make sure you machines are on a flat surface and make sure your masks have snug fittings.
Your Respshop Team!
The unit is a very poor design with the tube coming of the back and will swing completely to the back
The humidifier is not user friendly
The tank drops in a rack that is hard to open
And cleaning the humidifier is a pain you have to take apart to properly clean

2. Price seems great. Are these refurbs, or is the next newer better machine lurking in the wings?
2. These are new machines, however they are not auto-titrating machines but manual fixed pressure machines, which tend to be a bit cheaper. Indeed, Phillips recently released the DreamStation 2 which is the new generation in their flagship PAP devices.
The power supply is rated at 80 watts. So you would want to multiply it by the hours of use and you should have total watts used per night. So average I would say 640-800 watts in an 8 hours period. This would be with the humidifier and tube temperature ON. If you turn the Humidifier off or remove it completely, and turn the heated tube off, you will draw much less power.
Please call Philips Respironics directly for precise information: 1-800-345-6443
