Is it time to upgrade your CPAP?

 

Is your CPAP machine noisy?  Is it keeping you and/or your partner awake at night?  If your CPAP is three years old or older, there’s a good chance that it is. There are new CPAP machines that are quieter, lighter and auto-titrating. Meaning they automatically adjust to the optimal pressure settings. 

 

One of the biggest  trends of 2016 was S.M.A.R.T. , short for Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology.

 

You know what a smart phone is…but what about a smart CPAP machine?

 

On the most basic level, a PAP (positive airway pressure) machine is a medical device that blows pressurized air through the airway to prevent the throat closing during sleep apnea. But increasingly advanced technology in these machines is leading to all sorts of capabilities, including air pressure that is perfectly adjusted to your needs and the ability to track your CPAP usage or compliance.

  

Respironics 'DreamStation' is responsive, informative, easy-to-use and connects remotely to your care team. In every way, it’s designed to make it comfortable to help you stay committed to treating your sleep apnea.

 

  • The colorful display features an icon-based navigation system.
  • Among the leading CPAP brands, DreamStation features comprehensive selection of wireless options — including Bluetooth, Cellular and WiFi.
  • Performance Check— gives you peace of mind by confirming every morning that your device was working properly through the night.
  • Provides maintenance alerts and reminders every 30 days.
