Resmed S9 Autopap
The AutoSet series of Automatic Positive Airway Pressure (APAP) machines have long been designed to maximize comfort while providing minimal therapy pressures at the optimal moment. ResMed builds upon the AutoSet Advantage algorithm and incorporates EPR with Easy-Breathe technology in a new post modern shell. The S9 Series aesthetics are a complete redesign with new features:
Key Product Features
- Intuitive Design
- Mask-Fit System
- Optional Climate Control Heated Humidifier
- SlimLine or (Optional) ClimateLine Tubing
- AutoSet with Easy-Breathe Technology
- Forced Oscillation Technique (FOT)
- Expiratory Pressure Relief (EPR)
- Smart Start / Smart Stop
- On-Display Advanced Data Reporting
- Optional SkinIt Cover
ResMed has incorporated a simple and effective tool for help with proper mask fitting. The Mask-Fit system allows users to preset a mask type, tailoring the S9 CPAP therapy to a particular mask style:
- Full Face
Once set, the Mask-Fit system runs a 3 minute seal integrity test, prior to therapy treatment. After 3 minutes, a Mask-Fit icon appears (a green or red smiley face). If the smiley face is red, adjustments are necessary until the smiley face turns green, then therapy will begin.
Optional Humidaire H5i Heated Humidifier with Climate Control
ResMed has re-invented the Humidaire line of CPAP humidifiers. The Humidaire H5i incorporates an intelligent humidity controlling technology. The Climate Control system is managed through a combination of S9 machines, H5i humidifier and ClimateLine heated tubing. There are five sensors throughout the system that monitor ambient temperature and patient airflow. The ClimateLine heated tubing uses a built-in mask temperature sensor to reach relative humidity at the mask. Sensors inside and outside the CPAP machine closely monitor changes in humidity and prevents condensation from forming inside the tube. Rainout can hinder CPAP therapy and affect compliance. With the H5i humidifier, set the level of humidity and attach the ClimateLine tubing to achieve a new level of comfort.
SlimLine and (Optional) ClimateLine Tubing
The S9 Series CPAP machines come standard with the new ResMed SlimLine Tubing. The small diameter air tube is ultra-light, flexible and provides a unique alternative to bulky, generic 6 foot hoses. ResMed also offers a Standard Hose.
The ClimateLine Tubing has an internal heated coil and mask temperature sensor that helps manage rainout throughout the hose. Climate Control algorithms measure temperatures from the humidifier to prevent condensation from forming. The ClimateLine Tubing can use the SlimLine Tubing Wrap to achieve total control of rainout.
Enhanced AutoSet Advantage
ResMed's AutoSet Advantage is the answer to providing 'just what you need, when you need it'. Pressure needs vary throughout the night. These variations depend on how deep the user is sleeping, body position, and other daily factors that can affect therapy levels. AutoSet Advantage effectively minimizes therapy and helps lower pressure-related side effects, like mouth-breathing and nasal
