Various styles and configurations of CPAP machines available as per prescription and patient preference. CPAP accessories are available to help maintain your CPAP equipment and make the experience as comfortable as possible. The S9 AutoSet with H5i for Her has joined the AutoSet series of Automatic Positive Airway Pressure (APAP) machines which have long been designed to maximize comfort while providing minimal therapy pressures at the optimal moment. ResMed's AutoSet Advantage is the answer to providing 'just what you need, when you need it'. There are two menus that provide users with information about compliance, therapy and machine settings: Standard Menu and Clinical Menu.
View our CPAP Newsletter CPAP Newsletter: Understanding the S9 Line to see a detailed comparison of S9 Machines. A CPAP machine blows one constant pressure of air into your passageway throughout the night. A BiPAP machine delivers two separate pressures of air; One when the patient inhales and a separate pressure when they exhale.
An APAP machine automatically adjusts on a breath by breath basis to blow the minimum pressure needed to keep your airway open during sleep. This is the level of sound the machine produces at a pressure of 10cm, standing 1 meter away or roughly 3 feet from machine.
This measures only the weight of the machine and does not include total weight of power cables, bag, additional batteries or non-built-in humidifiers. This is the actual weight of the CPAP Machine without any accessories, power cord, or humidifier.
A yes in this field indicates the machine and humidifier have technology to reduce rainout, the water that collects in a hose when using a heated humidifier. This indicates that the machine has an integrated heated hose option to enhance humidification and reduce rainout.
This property defines whether the machine automatically adjusts pressure to meet the needs of the CPAP user on a breath-by-breath basis. A CPAP (Constant Positive Air Pressure) delivers continuous airflow at a prescribed pressure at 4cm to 30cm. Pressure Relief is a feature that lowers your therapy pressure to help with difficulties breathing against the machine's airflow, providing a more comfortable and natural breathing pattern. This property defines whether the machine is capable of continuously blowing a constant pressure.
Leak Compensation is a machine feature that identifies mask leaks and adjusts to maintain the delivered pressure as set.
Indicates which machines have a DC port in which you can use to connect a battery pack or a deep cycle marine battery with an optional DC cable.
A 'Yes' answer indicates that the CPAP Machine has an optional DC cable that plugs directly into a DC port.


An integrated battery pack attaches to and functions seamlessly with the machine it is integrated with.
Identifies which machines are data capable and have the ability to track your therapy progress over time.
This property marks the machines that have the ability to record performance data on a removable card. Altitude Adjustment is defined as the machine's ability to compensate for changes in altitude.
Spontaneous (S) mode tells the machine to start blowing at IPAP pressure with no specific interval set. Timed (T) or Spontaneous Timed (ST) modes provide a customizable backup rate that forces the machine to switch from exhalation to inhalation. The backlight for this machine either shuts off automatically after a short intreval or can be set to off. We have options to make your CPAP experience easier, more comfortable, and even more stylish with products from Philips Respironics, APEX and more!
ResMed had incorporated Easy-Breathe Technology along with an enhanced AutoSet algorithm to make breathing through a CPAP feel more "natural". ResMed also managed to reduce the overall conducted noise that typically travels from the machine, through the tubing, and at the mask. This feature automatically starts and stops your CPAP machine when you put on or take off your mask. Both can be reached by using the "Info" button on your machine, but the Advanced Info Menu will only appear if the machine is in its Clinical Mode. The machine alternates between the two set pressures to help optimize your sleep apnea treatment. Warranties vary in length depending on manufacturer, but generally all machines come with a 2 Year Warranty. Measured in Decibels, the values also indicate whether the machine is considered a "quiet CPAP"; see Quiet property.
Most all machines come with a patient manual; also called 'user manual', which may or may not have pressure setting instructions. Machines with a built-in humidifier are marked NA and must refer to Entire Size dimensions. Build In humidifiers are built into the CPAP machine and cannot be separated from the machine. An integrated headed hose receives power directly from the machine and does not require a power supply. All APAP machines are defined as 'Auto Adjusting', but some BiPAP's also use an Auto feature on both the IPAP and EPAP. APAP operates between a range and BiPAP machines are a mix of ranges and constant pressures.


This is different from an integrated battery that works only with the machine it was designed for. Some machines that are flagged as having software (seeOptional Software), do not have removable memory cards, rather instead, records information on-board and must use a download cable to retrieve the data from the machine.
The machine must wait and detect a break in the breathing cycle before reacting, switching from exhalation to inhalation. In ST Mode, the machine monitors the breathing cycle and switches from EPAP to IPAP once the backup time is met or whenever the break is detected through the sensors; whichever occurs first.
The Climate Control system is managed through a combination of S9 machines, H5i humidifier and ClimateLine heated tubing. This property does not account for noise that travels through the CPAP tubing, seemingly sounding louder than the measured db rating.
Some machines come with both the patient and quick setup guide or both patient and clinician manuals. These smaller and more lightweight machines are still robust enough for constant daily use as well as travel. The Fisher and Paykel HC150 was used for machines that do not have an integrated or built in humidifier system.
Integrated humidifiers connect directly to the CPAP machine and they can only be used with compatible CPAP machines. This pressure is measured in centimeters of water pressure (H2O) and 4-20cm is average pressure range on most CPAP machines. By setting the IPAP and EPAP to the same pressure, a CPAP Mode is achieved, preventing the EPAP pressure from dropping. The AutoSet Advantage will increase treatment pressure accordingly, for whatever flow limitation may occur. The process imitates normal respiration and ultimately makes breathing more comfortable than traditional CPAP machines. With Integrated? humidifiers, the CPAP machine, can be separated and used without the humidifier. See the "Power" tab of the machine's product page for more detailed information on how the machine works with alternate power sources, and what optional cables and batteries are compatible.
This property shows the software package to use for machine that has the ability to transfer data to your computer and report Hours of Usage.
CPAP machines that do not have a built in humidifier and do not have an integrated humidifier option have to use a Stand Alone humidifier as the machine's heated humidifier option. Sensors inside and outside the CPAP machine closely monitor changes in humidity and prevents condensation from forming inside the tube.
