Try DreamStation Auto CPAP Machine at home and if you're not completely satisfied, return it for a full refund of the original purchase price. Love it or send it back, it's that simple!

DreamStation's simple shape and full color display are a welcome change for sleep therapy patients used to bulkier, heavier, uglier device options. It is small and light with a modern, non-medical design that looks great on a bedside table, is user friendly, and fits easily in the included travel bag.

DreamStation's graphic user interface was designed with feedback from patients and doctors so it is easy to use, intelligent and informative. The machine's a large navigation dial is intuitive and convenient; and the bright, front facing display uses simple menus, icons and labels that are easy to understand.

DreamStation's settings can be adjusted while lying down or sitting up in bed and the machine's ambient light sensor adjusts display brightness automatically depending on light levels in the room.

The DreamStation Auto is an advanced APAP machine that monitors your breathing for flow limitations and adapts to them, automatically adjusting therapy throughout the night to ensure you're receiving the optimum pressure for a comfortable and successful sleep.

DreamStation Auto goes a step beyond traditional APAP therapy with Opti-Start. When Opti-Start is enabled DreamStation Auto will begin each therapy session at a pressure that is close to the previous session's 90% pressure, in order to reduce the likelihood of residual events at the beginning of a therapy session.

In addition to the traditional pressure ramp available on most sleep therapy devices, DreamStation Auto offers SmartRamp for an easier experience at the onset of sleep. When SmartRamp is enabled the DreamStation Auto will monitor your therapy levels, during the ramp period, to deliver lower overall pressure until it detects an obstructive respiratory event. When an event is detected SmartRamp responds to resolve the event, raising pressures as required until the ramp period concludes.

The DreamStation's Heated Humidifier is an elegant match to the DreamStation Auto's intelligent therapy offerings. The humidifier snaps securely onto the back of the DreamStation device to form a single integrated unit that can be setup and adjusted from the machine's primary LCD display.

In "Standard" mode the DreamStation Heated Humidifier acts like a typical heated humidifier, heating to the same pre-selected temperature level throughout the night. But the DreamStation Heated Humidifier can go beyond that with an "Adaptive" mode that delivers a precise, user selected, level of humidification at the mask throughout the night regardless of external factors like room temperature, flow rate, or external humidity. DreamStation Heated Tubing can also be added to provide extra protection from rainout and allow greater humidity levels than traditional non-heated tubing.

Philips Respironics's clinically-proven A-Flex pressure relief technology enhances traditional positive airway pressure therapy to improve comfort and increase compliance. Thanks to the advanced Digital Auto-Trak algorithm, that detects the onset of inspiration and exhalation, the DreamStation Auto delivers just the right amount of pressure relief, at the beginning and end of every breath, to provide a more natural breathing experience.

In addition to A-Flex, DreamStation Auto is equipped with Mask Fit Check tool to help with mask fitting, a Performance Check tool to ensure that your machine is working properly, EZ-Start adaptive therapy technology to help acclimate new sleep therapy users, and Auto On/Off capabilities to automatically start and stop therapy when a user puts on or takes off their mask.

The DreamStation Auto was built from the ground up to make therapy tracking and compliance easy and understandable for patients and doctors. Each device comes with Bluetooth built-in and an SD Data Card for data storage. After each sleep session the DreamStation displays a Sleep Progress report on the LCD screen. The Sleep Progress report shows nightly usage over the past 3 sleep sessions as well as summary data from the past 30 days. More detailed information is also available within the "My Info" section of the device or via the free DreamMapper App (iPhone, iPad & Android).

DreamStation Auto tracks, and adjusts therapy levels to respond to, many common OSA related events including Hypopneas, Flow Limitation, Respiratory Effort Related Arousal, Snores, and Leaks. In addition it can detect many symptoms beyond classic OSA -- such as clear airway apneas and periodic breathing -- that may indicate the need for specialized therapy.

The DreamStation Auto is great for home, but it is FAA approved and built for travel as well. Without a humidifier it weighs just 3 lbs and fits easily in the supplied carry case or any overnight travel bag. DC power cord and battery options are also available for camping, air travel and boating.

  • Impressed

    I needed to upgrade my cpap that was over 10 years old. The doctors office said the insurance would only rent the device for 10 months then I would own it. The total cost was over $2000 dollars. Then I heard of Direct Home Medical from a friend and saw the same cpap which was on sale for $500. I bought it and am very happy with my purchase. Direct Home Medical offered to contact my doctor for the prescription on my behalf and I had my cpap at my front door in two weeks. I will continue to use direct home medical in the future.

  • Great Cpap machine!

    I have been using this machine for a few years now. I see no limitations to it. I also use the humidifier. I like that I can download the data to a program to review my results.

  • Replacement for a 10yr old RemStar

  • Excellent

    This was my first time buying from Direct Medical and I’m glad I did. The product was quickly shipped and packed well. It works like a “dream.” Easy to adjust. Starts automatically within seconds after putting on the mask (dreamwear). I use it with the DreamMapper app on my iPhone to track sleep progress. It provides reminders to clean mask/tubing and also filter changes.

  • Loud and on/off button doesn't work reliably

    While I'm somewhat pleased with the unit, there are some things I don't like about it. 1. It's louder than I would like. Not terrible, but louder than my old Resmed unit. 2. The on/off button doesn't work every time you push it. Seems to be a common problem as my Resmed didn't work right either. I expect a firm button push to work every time, not 3 times out of 4. 3. The power cord has a transformer on it. Didn't realize this. This machine is plenty big enough that a regular 110v power cord could have been used with an internal transformer.

  • water reservior has problems

    The water reservior will only last one night and if it gets very close to empty a burnt plastic smell fills the airway and you will wake up with a terrible toxix smell. In my experience this happens on heat settings i, 2, or 3.

  • Quiet and smart

    The new designed Dreamstation is very quiet, and the RAMP adjusts automatically to my sleep pattern, it started with 4 and after a week of use it went to 6, perfect setting for me.
