APEX XT Fit Single-Pressure CPAP Machine
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 which is sold separately 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.

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 include the heated humidifier?
The XT Fit does not include the heated humidifier, but you can buy it here at RespShop.
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.
