Reduced size, modern design
The DreamStation range of CPAP machines are notably smaller and lighter than the 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 DreamSteation 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, France and Germany 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.
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.
Optimised humidification temperatures
As will 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.
