The DreamStation Auto from Philips Respironics represents the latest in CPAP technology. From bluetooth connectivity to automatic temperature adjustment in the optional humidifier, the DreamStation features numerous new features and refinements of existing ones to provide a truly patient-focused range of CPAP machines. Sleek, user friendly and highly effective, the DreamStation is unquestionably one of the most advanced CPAP machines ever made.

Important Information: This is an 'automatic' CPAP machine, which as the name suggests, automatically adjusts the pressure for the user, although it can also be set with specific pressure settings if required. If you have not yet been diagnosed with Sleep Apnoea, or do not have any written confirmation of a sleep apnoea diagnosis or prior CPAP usage that you can send us, please consider our quick and discreet in-home sleep study services.

Description

Details

Reduced size, modern design

The DreamStation range of CPAP machines are notably smaller and lighter than they System One predecessors. The main DreamStation units themselves weigh around 15% less than their System One equivalents - already favoured for their compact size. This allows you to travel more easily with your CPAP machine, and short of opting for a dedicated second machine for travel, the DreamStation represents arguably the best combination of size, features and performance available.

Tracking your CPAP therapy has never been easier

Philips Respironics have made allowing patients to keep on top of their therapy a top priority with the DreamStation range. As a result, the DreamStation provides to most ways of allowing patients to view their sleep data that we've seen. As usual, the data can be downloaded from the SD card (included) by your healthcare provider. However the full colour display also means you can access the important statistics on the machine itself. Thirdly, if you have a compatible iOS or Android smart device (not included) then you can use the DreamMapper app to view more in-depth statistics and data graphs. It is certainly the most comprehensive, focus-focussed data reporting feature set we've seen in a CPAP machine to date. If the DreamMapper app is of interest then we recommend checking compatibility with your device prior to purchase. The App Store link for Apple devices can be found here, while the Android Play Store link is here.

Important: The DreamMapper App is not available in every country. In Europe, it is currently is is available in the UK, Ireland, Austria, France, Germany and Switzerland at the time of writing. If you live outside of these countries it may not be available to download, though you can still return your SD card to us for analysis instead. However Philips are working on rolling the App out to additional countries, so please see if your country is listed on the drop-down box on this page to see if it has been made available for your country.

Optimised humidification temperatures

As with most CPAP machines, the DreamStation machines can be coupled with a humidifier if desired. The DreamStation Heated Humidifier is available separately and can be found here. As is the norm, the DreamStation Heated Humidifier has various temperature settings that you can adjust to suit. However it also features and Adaptive mode, which monitors the ambient humidity of the room and adjust the temperature of the water accordingly. No guesswork or trial and error required - you can rest knowing that you should be getting the right level of humidification regardless. The DreamStation Heated Humidifier slots neatly onto the main unit and shares the same power supply, so there's no need for a second wall socket. If you are unsure if you need a humidifier or not, then you can read our guide here. If you did wish to purchase the DreamStation Heated Humidifier, then you can add it to your order here.

Auto Start and Stop

The DreamStation Auto can detect if and when you start or stop using your CPAP machine. If you need a toilet break during the night, for example, you do not need to worry about fumbling about for the right button. Simply take your mask off and the machine will power down, and once it detects your breathing again it will resume automatically. This is another small feature which, when added to the other little touches Philips have added, show how patient-focussed the DreamStation is. Please be aware that this feature is actually disabled as standard, so do let us know prior to dispatch if you would like us to enable this for you.

Never forget to change your filters

Modern CPAP machine requires no maintaince other than regular changing of the filters. Many patients do not realise how important this actually is; clogged filters can reduce the performance of the machine and over time the filters will start to disintegrate. It is therefore important to keep on top of this as directed; and the DreamStation range now has automatic reminders when each filters is approaching the end of its lifespan.

Exhalation relief for exhanced comfort

Philips Respironics pioneered exhalation relief technology, which sees the machine lower the pressure it is providing slightly when the patient is breathing out. This allows the patient to exhale against less pressure; making it easier and more comfortable. Phillips have further refined their A-Flex functionality (their name for exhalation relief) to make the transitions between inhalation and exhalation smoother and more natural than ever before.

I already had a non automatic Cpap machine but the automatic function and the app on my phone which give me the user info on a daily basis, makes this machine worth itsweight in gold.
Delighted, and money well spent

I have used several other makes of CPAP before. This one is by far the most comfortable. Its runs very quietly and the automatic adjustment to changes in pressure when breathing out makes for very comfortable breathing. I did not realise what a difference this would make.

This machine is absolutely 1st class. From the ease of use to the build quality. The Philips app is a really useful tool that allows you to set your own personal goals as well as see how you actually slept during the night. The additional SIM or WiFi modems are brilliant in that they allow you to send the data directly to your clinician rather than posting SD cards

Hi, I bought this to combat my sleep apnea and so far the results have been very good. I feel much less tired during the day, and my Apple Watch is telling me than my quality of sleep is much improved. My snoring has reduced to almost nothing too! The product is very easy to use and monitor your last night's sleep with the phone app, and is very quiet - you only hear the air movement. It is a bit pricey but for 10 years of expected service, it is worth the price for better quality of life. Very happy with it so far.

bought this auto cpap and its very good. The stats that is shows and the fact that it bluetooths the info to mobile devices is great. 1st thing every morning i can look at my apnea events (AHI - full apnias/part apneas/Hypopneas)/ time machine used/ 90% pressure/ mask leakage etc.....there are also additional stats on the machine itself. Bought with the humidifier & all seems to work well. I think its quiet...seems to be when I start it but i wear ear plugs sonot really sure on that. Easy to change the settings also i.e min/max pressure / ramp pressure & time.

Having been a long term user of Resmed machines(initially supplied by NHS) it did not occur to me that there were other providers. Having become disenchanted with Resmed I looked on the net and found the Dreamstation. It is more expensive than the air sense 10 but when unpacking it I was immediately impressed with the quality of the build and the ease of operation - especially with the humidifier attached. It is very quiet in operation - I have no complaints about the quality of sleep either. In fact I feel it has greatly improved my sleep quality.
I have only one niggle - the fact that there is no off switch. One needs to switch it off at the mains. Other than that it scores 100%
