RESmart Auto CPAP Machine is an auto adjusting machine that delivers a therapy air stream at the optimum air pressure based on the user's needs throughout the night.
Therapy Comfort: Auto-Adjusting and Pressure Relief
The RESmart Auto CPAP uses auto-adjusting technology to provide the best level of pressure for effective therapy. The machine adjusts the delivered air flow based on information gathered on a breath by breath basis. The pressure range is set in the Clinical Menu with MaxAPAP being the highest pressure and Treatment Pressure being the lowest pressure.
Sensitivity Setting, a feature unique to the RESmart Auto CPAP, allows the user to set the responsiveness level of the auto-adjusting algorithm. It offers settings 1 through 5 with 1 being a "soft" adjustment and 5 being a "hard" adjustment. "Soft" means that the adjustment will be applied over a longer period of time and "hard" means it will be applied more quickly. The machine is set to a default setting of 3 or mid-range Sensitivity Setting.
RESlex is a therapy comfort feature that reduces the air stream pressure during exhalation making it easier to breathe out against the flow. RESlex can be set to a level of 0, 1, 2, or 3 with 3 being the largest drop in pressure at exhalation. The default setting for RESlex is 0, or 'off. See the Important Tips tab for information on accessing the Patient Menu to set RESlex setting.

This identifies the machine as continuous, auto adjusting, or bilevel operation. This does not identify whether the machine automatically adjusts pressure. Auto adjusting refers to APAP, whereas BiPAP Auto is differentiated using the Auto Pressure Adjustment property. BiPAP machines are defined further using Spontaneous or Timed properties.
A CPAP machine blows one constant pressure of air into your passageway throughout the night. Your ideal pressure was determined during your sleep study.
A BiPAP machine delivers two separate pressures of air; One when the patient inhales and a separate pressure when they exhale. The machine alternates between the two set pressures to help optimize your sleep apnea treatment.
An APAP machine automatically adjusts on a breath by breath basis to blow the minimum pressure needed to keep your airway open during sleep. This allows your machine to provide you with your ideal pressure nightly.
Warranty is the length of time that the manufacturer will guarantee a product to be free of defects. Warranties vary in length depending on manufacturer, but generally all machines come with a 2 Year Warranty.
|2 Years||2 Years||2 Years|
This is the level of sound the machine produces at a pressure of 10cm, standing 1 meter away or roughly 3 feet from machine. Measured in Decibels, the values also indicate whether the machine is considered a "quiet CPAP"; see Quiet property.
|≤30 dBA||<30 dBA||24 dBA|
This identifies which machines have a decibel rating of 29 and lower. This does not account for use with the humidifier attached, which could supply additional volume that can muffle or amplify sound. This property does not account for noise that travels through the CPAP tubing, seemingly sounding louder than the measured db rating.
This indicates which manuals are included with the purchase of a CPAP machine. Most all machines come with a patient manual; also called 'user manual', which may or may not have pressure setting instructions. Some machines come with both the patient and quick setup guide or both patient and clinician manuals.
Looking to travel? We have found some machines are easier to travel with than others. These smaller and more lightweight machines are still robust enough for constant daily use as well as travel.
|Under 3 lbs|
This measures only the weight of the machine and does not include total weight of power cables, bag, additional batteries or non-built-in humidifiers.
This is the actual weight of the CPAP Machine without any accessories, power cord, or humidifier. Machines with a weight 3lbs or less are also identified in the Under 3 lbs property.
|3.53 lbs||2.8 lbs||1.8 lbs|
This is the combined weight of the machine, heated humidifier, power cables, bag and hose. The weight of the shipping box is not included in the number.
|7.48 lbs||6.8 lbs||7.4 lbs|
This is the combined dimensions of the CPAP with the Heated humidifier.

This indicates which heated humidifier works best with the listed CPAP machine. In some instances, Built-in is used to describe a machine/humidifier combination system. The Fisher and Paykel HC150 was used for machines that do not have an integrated or built in humidifier system.
|RESmart||System One 60 Series||H5i|
Identifies which CPAP has a humidifier that is built into the CPAP. Built-In humidifiers cannot be separated from the CPAP machine.
|Heated Humidifier Type|
This property identifies how the machine incorporates a Heated Humidifier. Build In humidifiers are built into the CPAP machine and cannot be separated from the machine. Integrated humidifiers connect directly to the CPAP machine and they can only be used with compatible CPAP machines. With Integrated¯ humidifiers, the CPAP machine, can be separated and used without the humidifier. CPAP machines that do not have a built in humidifier and do not have an integrated humidifier option have to use a Stand Alone humidifier as the machine's heated humidifier option. Stand Alone¯ humidifiers can be used with any machine and connect to the CPAP machine with an additional hose.
Manufacturers are finding ways to reduce the amount of water that collects in the CPAP hose when using a Heated Humidifier. The Rainout Reduction feature varies by manufacturer and machine and can be anything from an integrated heated hose, to technology that measures the humidity at the mask and adjusts the humidity to reduce rainout.
|No||60 Series Heated Tube||Climate Control|
|Integrated Heated Hose|
This indicates that the machine has an integrated heated hose option to enhance humidification and reduce rainout. An integrated heated hose draws its power from the machine itself and does not have a separate power cord and is adjusted through the machine settings.
|Auto Pressure Adjustment|
This property defines whether the machine automatically adjusts pressure to meet the needs of the CPAP user on a breath-by-breath basis. All APAP machines are defined as 'Auto Adjusting', but some BiPAP's also use an Auto feature on both the IPAP and EPAP. If not marked, Yes, assume the machine does not have AUTO capabilities.
A CPAP (Constant Positive Air Pressure) delivers continuous airflow at a prescribed pressure at 4cm to 30cm. APAP operates between a range and BiPAP machines are a mix of ranges and constant pressures. This pressure is measured in centimeters of water pressure (H2O) and 4-20cm is average pressure range on most CPAP machines.
|4-20cm H20||4-20cm H2O||4-20cm H20|
|EPAP Pressure Range|
This Property lists the operating range for the Exhalation Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP). This is the pressure setting used when you exhale. EPAP is always lower than the IPAP (inhalation) pressure, making breathing out easier and more comfortable.
Pressure Relief is a feature that lowers your therapy pressure to help with difficulties breathing against the machine's airflow, providing a more comfortable and natural breathing pattern. Assistance can occur on the Exhalation, on the Inhalation, and on both exhalation and inhalation at the same time.
|RESlex||A-Flex||AutoSet with Easy-Breathe|
The Ramp feature allows the user to start treatment at a lower pressure to fall asleep with, gradually raising the pressure over a set time. This is a comfort setting and can set from 0 to 45 minutes on most CPAP machines.
This property defines whether the machine is capable of continuously blowing a constant pressure. All CPAP machines are defined as 'continuous', but some BiPAP's and APAP's also come with a CPAP mode; some BiPAP and BiLevel machines Do NOT. By setting the IPAP and EPAP to the same pressure, a CPAP Mode is achieved, preventing the EPAP pressure from dropping.
Leak Compensation is a machine feature that identifies mask leaks and adjusts to maintain the delivered pressure as set. If marked N/A assume the information is not available due to being out of production or unavailable.
|Direct Battery Operation|
Indicates which machines have a DC port in which you can use to connect a battery pack or a deep cycle marine battery with an optional DC cable. This is different from an integrated battery that works only with the machine it was designed for. (i.e. Everest CPAP Machine) see property Integrated Battery
Domestic Voltage is the voltage that is used with a standard wall outlet in the United States and ranges from 100-120 volts. International Voltage can range from 220v-240v AC.
|100-240V AC||100-240V AC||100-240V AC|
|Optional DC Cable|
A 'Yes' answer indicates that the CPAP Machine has an optional DC cable that plugs directly into a DC port (see _Direct Battery Operation_). This allows you to use a DC power source, such as a battery or car cigarette lighter. Although some cables already come with battery terminal leads, some DC cables will need a separate part that connects the cigarette lighter adapter to another adapter with terminal leads.
An integrated battery pack attaches to and functions seamlessly with the machine it is integrated with. It allows your CPAP to run on AC and fail over to the DC battery only if necessary.
Identifies which machines are data capable and have the ability to track your therapy progress over time. The machine captures key metrics like AHI (Apnea/Hypopnea Index), Leakage, and most pressure used. Depending on the machine, the data can be retrieved through an on Machine Screen Display (MSD), through Optional Software (OS), and/or through SmartCode (SC).
This property marks the machines that have the ability to record performance data on a removable card. Some machines that are flagged as having software (seeOptional Software), do not have removable memory cards, rather instead, records information on-board and must use a download cable to retrieve the data from the machine.
Software is an option on some CPAP machines. The software can give details on compliance and performance. The patient or physician downloads the data from the CPAP machine to determine how long a patient has used their machine each night and how well the machine is working to stop Apnea/Hypopnea events. This property shows the software package to use for machine that has the ability to transfer data to your computer and report Hours of Usage. See Advanced Software for a list of machines that can report AHI or Leakage.
|Auto Altitude Adjustment|
Altitude Adjustment is defined as the machine's ability to compensate for changes in altitude. Compensation can either occur manually or automatically. Manual adjustments occur within the Setup Menu and must be set by the user. Automatic requires no user intervention.
This feature turns the machines off and on when putting on or taking off the mask. When you put your mask on the machines senses you breathing and turns itself on. Take off the mask and the machine turns off.
|Mask Off Alert|
This feature detects excessive mask leaks due to poor cushion seal or when a user stops therapy by removing a mask when in use. The alert can be in the form of an audible alarm (ALARM) or a text message on the unit's LCD display (LCD).
Spontaneous (S) mode tells the machine to start blowing at IPAP pressure with no specific interval set. The machine must wait and detect a break in the breathing cycle before reacting, switching from exhalation to inhalation. If a backup rate is needed, then the unit will need a time interval setting and will be marked 'Yes' on the Timed property.
Timed (T) or Spontaneous Timed (ST) modes provide a customizable backup rate that forces the machine to switch from exhalation to inhalation. In ST Mode, the machine monitors the breathing cycle and switches from EPAP to IPAP once the backup time is met or whenever the break is detected through the sensors; whichever occurs first. The time aspect is only meant to act as a backup respiratory rate to the (S) function (see Spontaneous). This is used for patients with central sleep apnea, or those who need non-invasive mechanical ventilation.

Review the Quick Reference Sheet RESmart Auto & CPAP for help with settings.
The RESmart iCode Quick Reference Sheet offers information on iCode functions and reports.
RESmart machines use a standard, 22mm hose and are not compatible with 15mm hoses.
RESlex Setting: The default setting for RESlex is turned off with a setting zero. RESlex is set in the Patient Menu. To access the Patient Menu:
DelayOff with Humidifier Usage: If a humidifier was used during the therapy session, the machine will continue blowing in a 'DelayOff' mode at a very low pressure to cool off the heating elements. This is normal operation for the RESmart line of machines. This feature can be changed in the Patient Menu as detailed above for RESlex. Look for the feature "DelayOff."
When "Enable" is selected, a machine with humidifier will run at a low pressure to cool and dry the machine. When "Disable" is selected, a machine with a humidifier will turn off when the therapy session is ended.
Range for auto-adjusting: The RESmart Auto machine refers the pressure range with the terms MaxAPAP (highest pressure) and Treatment Pressure (lowest pressure). Some manufacturers call these the Max and Min pressures. The machine will adjust to the optimum pressure between the two. When in auto-mode, the pressures displayed on the screen under the word "Ramp" and the ramp time are the starting "Ramp" pressure on the left and the Treatment, or minimum, pressure on the right.
Filter Change: Remove the filter cover by depressing the tab on the bottom of the cover and pulling up on the flare at the bottom of the cover. Insert the filter with the smooth, flat side facing INTO the machine. The textured side of the filter will be showing when installed correctly. Snap the filter cover back in place. Never install a wet filter.
Humidifier Chamber: The humidifier chamber is sealed and cannot be taken apart. It is recommended to fill and empty the chamber through the top port. Alternately, the silicone plug on top of the chamber can be removed to allow emptying. To replace the silicone plug, set the chamber on a hard, even surface, line up the tabs with the holes on the chamber and press firmly downward.
NOTE: Using the RESmart with DC power requires an Inverter such as 400 Watt DC to AC Power Inverter. When calculating the run time of a battery source consider that the inverter itself will draw power during usage. Using the heated humidifier with a battery will further reduct
"This is only the second machine I've ever purchased. My old machine was definitely on the way out, it had become loud and began making whining noises. Am I glad I was able to get this machine to replace it.
It's a very quiet machine, which is always great. It has some wonderful features, my favorite being you can just put the mask on and inhale and the machine will start automatically, and it will stop automatically when you take the mask off, which has been quite handy. It's a very customizable machine, with lots of flexibility built in, and it's easy to operate and navigate through the onboard menus.
The main downside to this machine is its size. My previous machine was a travel cpap, and only the size of about 2 vhs tapes. This machine is quite a bit bigger, and heavier. The provided travel case will make it easy to travel with, but no where near as easy as my previous machine. I also fine the included heater to be a bit cumbersome to put on an take off, as well as to refill. None of these are dealbreakers in my book, but they are worth considering.
All in all, it's a great machine, but the size and bulk of it is a bit off putting."
"Easy to use, easy to setup if you need to change.CPAP.COM made it an easy choice."
"it works good and as expected"
"My old CPAP machine died and I was back to experiencing the afternoon/evening lack of energy. I ordered the RESmart machine and promtly recieved it. It was easy to set up. I am now back to having energy during the entrie day. I love the machine."
"After my current CPAP machine presented a blank display and was unresponsive for 24 hours I decided to get another machine to ensure my current one doesn't sleep on the job, leaving me sleepless.
The budget was tight, so I had planned on the most affordable CPAP machine available, but since this was on special, I opted to pay extra for the Resmart Auto rather than the fixed pressure.
Cheers to cpap.com for delivering to Australia in 6 working days.
First impressions - the machine is black, rounded and attractive, albeit quite large and heavy. Great if like me you worry about pulling over your lightweight machine and giving it a humidifier bath (R.I.P my first machine, a Sandman Info). May not be so great if you have to carry it while traveling.
I'll start with the negatives, which thankfully are few and not deal breakers. The machine came preset auto between 4-20cmH20. I had a few nights bad sleep while I tested tightening the range, but now I am very happy with it. The machine emits more noise than my previous CPAP machine, but not enough to bother me. I could not figure out how to decouple the humidifier add-on from the basic machine. This may only matter if you want to travel light and are willing to forgo humidification to do so. Of more concern, the humidifier tank is a touch tricky to attach, especially filled with water in an unlit bedroom. It involves sliding the tank horizontally to the machine so that side 'lips' at the bottom of the tank slide underneath metal 'runners' at the sides of the humidifier unit. Also inspection of the bottom of the humidifier tank and heater plate later shows slight wear marks from friction of them rubbing on each other while attaching the tank. This may contribute to wear-and-tear of the humidifier tank bottom. Also the plastic of the standard gauge hose that came with the machine seems thinner and more fragile than my previous machine. Purchase of more sturdy tubing is probably wise. There is a feature where the machine stops when you remove the mask, even enabled this never seems to work with my mask (I probably set something wrong)
Now with the positives. Once the auto range is tightened (especially your lower range not too far below your prescribed pressure) therapy is comfortable, with reduced mask leaks. The reslex feature really does give relief on exhalation, for which I am grateful. The machine starts as soon as I breath into my mask, for which I am grateful as its difficult to reach my machine which is under my bed. The humidifier tank had plenty of water left even after an 8hr30minute sleep on one occasion. There is the usual on-screen compliance data, including meanP, P95, AHI and SNI and sleep time. Using this machine has dropped my AHI from 0.6 (old machine) to 0.1 (this machine) on average. I have not yet used iCode to view telemetry data of my sleeps, or connected a cable from the machine to my PC to do the same, but I will. I read the machine has full telemetry data over a 365 day period, but I have yet to test this. One night we had a power blackout and the machine woke me with its 10-15second piercing squeals - (for which I am thankful, my last machine silently fails during power out, and I once woke up thinking I was suffocating from re-breathing expired air).
All in all this is a great machine, with a few quirks as listed in the negatives, I've never used a Resmed S9 which I understand is the Rolls Royce of CPAP machines, but the Resmart machine perfectly fits the bill of 'cheap and cheerful' and I am pleased with it and have no issues recommending it to others."
We work very hard to provide many different ways for our customers to compare products. Here are the machine product guides we have created and maintain:
We provide our customers with many tools to make informed decisions about their machine purchases. Options include:
Machines come with a six foot hose, power cord, at least one filter, and manuals. Most manufacturers include a carrying case which is designed specifically for their equipment. CPAP / BiPAP / APAP machines do not come with a delivery system or mask. CPAP Masks must be purchased separately.
To see the list of what specifically comes with each machine, you can browse for a machine. Then on the product page, click the "Specs" tab to see a full list of what comes with the machine.
Most CPAP and BiLevel machines today are designed to operate on both AC and DC battery currents. In the United States, the AC current from wall outlets is 110 volt and most batteries produce 12 volt DC current. Overseas, the AC current is usually 220 or 240 volt.
We include information about the power needs and capacities in the description of our products. Please see the "Power" tab on any machine product page for this information. You can also see a summary of the voltage range and whether it is DC capable on our Compare Charts.
The only care a CPAP or BiPAP machine requires is to clean or change the filters at the air intake. This keeps the internal parts from accumulating dust. Fine, paper filters should be changed out every 30 days, or when they appear soiled. Foam, washable filters should be rinsed with clear running water once a week, allowed to air dry, and reinserted.
There are some other suggested actions to care for your machine:
Yes. Federal law requires we have a valid prescription on file before we ship your mask, machine and/or humidifier.
We provide many easy ways to get your prescription:
All CPAP masks work with all machines.
Yes, all CPAPs use at least one filter that is usually a type of foam material and washable. Some CPAPs offer finer filtration with the addition of a disposable paper filter.
Cleaning and changing filters is the only maintenance required for a CPAP machine.
The filters are located at the back of the machine at the air intake. The image below shows the black foam filter at the back of the Everest 3 CPAP Machine.
Washable foam filters should be cleaned as soon as they become discolored. Depending on your environment, that may mean weekly cleaning.
Disposable filters should not be cleaned, just disposed of.
An APAP (Automatic Positive Airway Pressure) machine automatically adjusts on a breath by breath basis to blow the minimum pressure needed to keep your airway open during sleep. This allows your machine to provide you with your ideal pressure nightly.
APAPs tend to be more advanced than CPAPs in that they normally offer more therapy tracking information and more comfort features. You can learn more about therapy tracking information in our Software section of the Learning Center.
Every APAP machine can be placed in a CPAP mode to blow one straight pressure like a CPAP. However, no CPAP can automatically adjust pressure like an APAP. An example of an APAP machine is the DeVilbiss IntelliPAP AutoAdjust that comes with built in Smart Code therapy tracking software.
Some CPAP users find it more pleasant to breath with APAP than with CPAP because the pressure automatically changes as needed to deliver the minimal pressure needed. With a CPAP, on the other hand, the pressure is set at the highest necessary to keep the airway open, even though the high pressure is needed only a fraction of the time.
Data capable machines track your therapy progress and performance over time. Therapy data can be used to spot issues and used to see how changes to your CPAP setup effects your overall treatment. You and your doctor can use the therapy information to make changes in your setup, like changing your mask, or increasing or decreasing your pressure to see if your therapy performance improves and ensure you are getting effective treatment.
The data capable machines, not only let you know how many hours the machine was used, like pure compliance tracking machines, but also tracks advanced information such as AHI, Leak Rate, and Average Pressure (if using an APAP).
Depending on the machine, the information can be reviewed or accessed
Compliance tracking machines only track the numbers of hours the machine is used. These machines do not track any advanced information such as AHI or leak rate.
Compliance machines are basic machines which the manufacturers made to be able to track usage hours. Compliance tracking machines are a manufacturer response to Medicare requirements that mandate DME (Durable Medical Equipment) providers show the Medicare patient used the equipment for the required minimum number of hours set by Medicare. DME providers cannot continue to be paid by Medicare without this information.
There is one billing code for all CPAP and APAP machines. Therefore a DME will be paid the same from Medicare or Insurance whether they provide a patient with a more expensive machine that is Data Capable with more comfort features or a basic compliance tracking machine. Therefore, compliance tracking machines are the most common type of machine that is provided to patients through local DMEs.
There is software created to show the compliance information from the machine, however CPAP.com does not recommend purchasing this software. This data will only tell you how many hours you actually used the machine. It will not tell you how effective your therapy is.
The ramp button on a machine is a feature that allows for a gradual pressure build-up to your prescribed pressure. The feature is enjoyed by those with high pressures because they ease up to their pressure.
Exhalation relief is a comfort feature offered by two manufactures which reduces the air flow at the time of exhalation making the breathing process more natural.
An adapter may be required to plug a US power cord into a wall outlet in a foreign country. CPAP.com sells an assortment pack of World Traveler Power Adapter Plugs, which allow CPAP machines to plug into different types of wall sockets found in different countries.
All the models CPAP.com sell contain power converters that enable the machine to operate on any AC current from 100 to 240 volts without any adjustment. Check with your dealer or manufacturer to see if your machine needs an external converter that lowers the voltage from 240 to 120 VAC.
