Top of the Line CPAP Machine
The S9 Escape from is one of the premier CPAP machines available, and this model comes with the H5i Heated Humidifier and Expiratory Pressure Relief (EPR) which monitors your breathing patterns throughout the night. The heated therapy along with the EPR make breathing through a CPAP feel more natural, and will help you make the most of your therapy. Weighing just 1.79 pounds and small enough to fit on any nightstand, the S9 Escape is a convenient and high performing CPAP device.
Quiet and Intelligent CPAP Therapy
The S9 Escape is one of the quietest CPAP machines on the market today. Designed with an Easy-Breathe motor, the machine stifles noise and is nearly silent, so you can your partner can have a more relaxing night of sleep. Additionally, users will find this machine easy to use. It comes with an intuitive LCD display screen and a simple user interface. The dials are big and easy to use, so you'll have no problem customizing your night of sleep apnea therapy.
Expiratory Pressure Relief (EPR)
EPR decreases air pressure at the beginning of each breath, and keeps pressure low throughout exhalation. The pressure is reduced by one, two, or three centimeters of water pressure, depending on your settings and preferences. These pressure changes are gradual, so you won't wake up during the night and the machine won't suddenly start making excessive noise. EPR also detects when you're having an unnatural breathing episode: if an apnea happens to last for more than ten seconds, EPR will stop until normal breathing resumes. ResMed also designed EPR with ramp technology, which will steadily add pressure to your respiration cycles from the time you start your machine. Simply set the machine to EPR RAMP ONLY to use this future.
Easy-breathe technology softens your breathing cycle by monitoring your respiratory patterns throughout the night. By accurately monitoring each breath, the machine knows when to apply pressure, and it delivers this pressure smoothly and quietly. When set to 10 cm pressure, the S9 Escape will operate at just 24dBA!
H5i Heated Humidifier
The H5i Heated humidifier is designed to reduce symptoms associated with CPAP therapy, including: rainout, dry mouth, dry throat, nasal congestion, and soreness. The humidifier is compatible with the Escape and all other ResMed S9 devices, and it works with each to provide a more therapeutic night's sleep. This humidifier is particularly useful for patients who store or use their machines in cold weather. The warmer air from the humidifier makes it easier to breathe and will help you drift off to sleep easily.
The S9 Escape uses SlimLine tubing, ResMed's slimmest CPAP tube to date. The tube has a 15 mm diameter -- normal tubes have a 22 mm diameter -- which makes it less bulky and more responsive to your movements throughout the night. The machine is also compatible with standard sized hoses.
Optional ClimateLine and Climate Control
The ClimateLine Tubing is optional for the S9 Escape. Like the SlimLine, this tube is narrow and it features a shorter diameter than traditional hoses. The ClimateLine comes with an internal heated coil and a mask temperature sensor that helps manage the temperature of your CPAP machine and mask, which will help to guard against rainout. Internal Climate Control algorithms will also help to prevent condensation from forming on the inside of your mask. Wake up with fewer symptoms and no condensation with the use of the Climate Control and ResMed's patented ClimateLine tube.

Connecting ResMed ClimateLine Tubing to ResMed S9 Escape
Does this product come with any accessories?
Yes. The S9 Escape comes with a travel bag, a power adapter, and a smart card.
Can I wash the humidifier in my dishwasher?
The H5i Humidifier can be washed in a dishwasher, but at Respshop, we recommend washing it with warm water, a non-abrasive soap, and a soft cloth. We just generally advise against washing hundred dollar products in dishwashers, just in case!
Can I alternate between a standard tube, a ClimateLine tube, and a SlimLine tube?
Sure, the S9 Escape is compatible with all three. It comes with a SlimLine tube, but if you prefer to use your standard tube or wish to purchase the ClimateLine as an accessory, your machine will accomodate both.
