    PR System One REMstar Pro CPAP Machine with AutoIQ

    PR System One REMstar Pro CPAP Machine with AutoIQ

    AutoIQ technology takes the PR System One REMstar Pro CPAP Machine with C-Flex Plus to a smarter level. This feature offers up to 30 nights of auto adjusting capability, during which time the system works as an Auto CPAP delivering an adaptive pressure on a breath by breath basis. An Auto-Trial phase must be a minimum of 3 nights in length. After an initial Auto-Trial period as set the system switches to Auto-Check Phase and functions as a CPAP delivering the pressure that the patient was at or below 90% of the time. The Auto-Check Phase continuously verifies pressure requirements and makes adjustments after every 30 hours of use providing the user with more effective pressure levels over time.

    Please note: This is not an Auto CPAP Machine. It functions as an Auto CPAP during Auto-Trial Phases and switches to CPAP mode during Auto-Check Phase.

    NOTE: the Heated Humidifier is included in the price of this machine.

    Product Features

    AutoIQ Technology

    AutoIQ has two phases: Auto-Trial Phase and Auto-Check Phase.

    Auto-Trial Phase

    Auto-Trial Phase monitors and adjusts pressure on a breath by breath basis for up to 30 nights. The goal of the Auto-Trial Phase is to use breathing pattern data to identify the ideal pressure needed. At the end of a trial period, the machine is automatically set to a pressure that the patient was at or below 90% of the time.

    All 30 nights do not need to be used at one time. A minimum of 3 nights can be used to complete an Auto-Trial Phase. The remaining nights can be used at any time in the future.

    Every time the Auto-Trial Phase is used, the machine will use the most recent Auto-Trial Phase data to set the ideal pressure.

    Auto-Check Phase

    Once an Auto-Trial Phase is complete, the AutoIQ mode transitions to Auto-Check Phase. Every 30 hours the machine checks if a pressure adjustment is needed based on breathing events.

    If a pressure adjustment is needed, the machine will automatically adjust by 1 cm/H2O up or down. Every 30 hours the machine will continue to track and adapt pressure as needed in 1 cm/H20 increments, staying within an upper and lower limit of 3 cm/H2O of the original set pressure. If a pressure change is not needed, the machine will stay at the current pressure.

    Here is an example of how the Auto-Check Phase works:

    If the ideal pressure after the Auto-Trial Phase was 10 cm/H2O and after 30 hours of use Auto-Check Phase data indicated the pressure needed to be raised, the machine would automatically change the pressure to 11 cm/H2O. If the pressure needed to be lowered, the machine would automatically change to 9 cm/H2O. If no pressure adjustment was needed, the pressure would stay at 10 cm/H2O. The Auto-Check Phase would continue every 30 hours to monitor and adjust the pressure as needed. However, the pressure would not be raised or lowered more than 3 cm/H2O of the original pressure. Using the original pressure of 10cm/H2O, the machine would not be lowered past 7 cm/H2O and would not be raised past 13 cm/H2O.

    If the machine is placed back into Auto-Trial Phase mode to determine a new ideal pressure, the Auto-Check Phase would monitor and change pressure as needed every 30 hours, staying within 3 cm/H2O of the new ideal pressure.

    The machine does not need to be set on Auto-Check Phase. It can be placed on straight CPAP mode, where no pressure checks or adjustments are made.

    What is the Respiratory Distress Index? The RDI is used to determine the severity of sleep apnea. The index value is determined based on the number of apneas, hypopneas, and respiratory event-related arousal (RERAs) that occur per hour of sleep.

    Encore Data Management and Reporting

    The PR System One monitors and tracks therapy progress. It uses a SD card to capture advanced data such as leak rate and AHI (Apnea/Hypopnea Index). This data can be accessed through the "Info" menu on the machine's display. The PR System One records and displays both 7 and 30 day data averages.

    To view more detailed data and to monitor trends over time, the optional EncoreViewer Software can be used.

    C-Flex Plus Technology

    Flex Technology provides pressure relief for every breath to make breathing with a CPAP more natural. C-Flex Plus technology reduces the pressure during exhalation based on expiratory flow. It also softens the transition between inhalation and exhalation.

    System One Resistance Control

    To reach optimal pressure, Phillips Respironics developed System One Resistance Control. It is a numbering system that allows the CPAP device to recognize a mask that is used with treatment. It achieves accuracy and reliability by instructing the device to compensate for the specific mask type.

    System One Humidity Control with Dry Box Technology (optional)

    System One Humidity Control closely monitors humidity levels for potential rainout. Using internal and external sensors, the optimal relative humidity level is determined. If there is a large difference between the room temperature and the hose temperature, there is a greater chance for more moisture to form. System One Humidity Control analyzes ambient air temperature to determine whether moisture will form. Based on the air data, the machine adjusts humidity levels to reduce moisture in the CPAP tube.

    Dry Box Technology has also been added to prevent water damage. The Dry Box acts as a reservoir, preventing humidifier water from entering the CPAP machine.

    CPAP Video & FAQ

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    What is CPAP therapy?
    CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. CPAP therapy is the most commonly recommended, and the most effective, treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.

    A CPAP machine provides air at a constant prescribed pressure. The air is delivered to the person through a tube and a CPAP mask. CPAP therapy provides a constant airflow which keeps the airway open so uninterrupted breathing is maintained during sleep. The air stream eliminates Sleep Apnea events and allows the person to get a restful sleep.

    The level of air pressure required to maintain your airway is determined during your sleep study. Your doctor will write a prescription for a CPAP machine set at that pressure.

    CPAP therapy is delivered through a nasal mask that seals around the nose or nasal pillows which seal at the nasal opening. Full face masks are available for a person who breathes through both the nose and mouth. Many innovative and comfortable options are available and advances in the delivery of CPAP therapy are continually occurring.

    For instance: Some machines offer a comfort feature such as FLEX or EPR technology. It provides exhalation relief, a slight drop in pressure at the time of exhalation to help make therapy more natural. APAP, BiPAP and BiLevel machines offer various levels of pressure throughout the night.

    What comes with my machine?
    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, APAP, and BiPAP 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.

    What maintenance is required on machines?
    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.

    Here are some other suggested actions to care for your machine:
    • Keep the area around your machine clean by removing any dust from the area to improve the air quality delivered to your machine and to you.
    • Keep the air intake of the machine unblocked. Curtains, bedding, and papers can easily block the air intake of your machine, reducing the airflow.
    • If a humidifier is used with your therapy, do not pick up the machine with the humidifier attached. With most machines it is easy to spill water from the humidifier chamber into the machine causing damage. Manufacturer warranties are voided by water damage to the machine. To avoid this, remove the chamber from the humidifier and then remove the humidifier from the machine rather than transporting them together.
    • If a humidifier is used, empty the water from the chamber every morning. Accidents happen. If a family pet or family member moves the machine and humidifier with water in the chamber it is more likely that water could be spilled into your machine. Water damage to a machine voids the manufacturer warranty.
    Are prescriptions required for mask, machine and/or humidifier purchases?
    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:
    • We can request your prescription for you! When you checkout, just let us know you would like us to request your prescription, or you can log into your account to have us request your prescription.
    • Fax your prescription to our toll free fax number: 866.353.2727, or our international fax number: 713.541.7370

    What does a mask prescription need to say?
    A mask prescription must contain all of the following information:
    • One of the following words or phrases: "CPAP Mask", "CPAP Supplies", "CPAP Humidifier", "CPAP", "Continuous Positive Airway Pressure", "APAP", "AutoPAP", "AutoSet", "Auto CPAP", "Auto Adjusting CPAP", "Self Adjusting CPAP", "BiPAP", "BiLevel", "VPAP", "BiPAP Auto", "BiPAP ST", "Synchrony ST", "VPAP ST"
    • Your physician's contact information
    • Your physician's signature
    • The patient's full name
    Do all CPAPs use filters?
    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.

    What data capable machines are available?
    CPAP machines which record full data (such as AHI and leak info):


    AutoPAP ("Autotitrating CPAP" or "APAP") machines which record full data:


    BiLevel ("BiPAP") machines which record full data:


    CPAP Machines that only record compliance data (hours used) are:

    What is ramp?
    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 it eases up to their pressure.
    What is exhalation relief?
    Exhalation relief is a comfort feature which reduces the air flow at the time of exhalation, making the breathing process more natural. Philips Respironics and ResMed are the two manufacturers who offer exhalation relief features.
    • Philips Respironics = C-Flex, C-Flex+, A-Flex and Bi-Flex
    • Resmed = EPR (Expiratory Pressure Relief)
    What is C-Flex?
    C-Flex is a pressure relief feature that makes breathing back against CPAP pressure easier to do by reducing the pressure at the beginning of exhalation and returning to therapeutic pressure just before inhalation. Independent studies conducted by leading universities indicate that patient comfort, and therefore, patient CPAP compliance, is higher with machines that use C-Flex. C-Flex is a technology invented by Respironics, is proprietary, and is not available on other brands of CPAP machines.

    How do I use a battery to operate my CPAP?
    All machines can connect to DC power. Some machines are configured to operate on DC Power and have a DC power outlet. Other machines require AC power and will need an Inverter that turns DC power to AC power.

    Having the proper equipment is the biggest key to successfully operating the machine from a battery. For example, if your machine does have a DC outlet and you want to run your machine from a marine battery, be sure to get the correct DC cable for the machine, as well as an adapter cable with alligator clips that fits over the cigarette lighter plug.

    CPAP.com sells complete battery kits with everything you need for many machines including the correct cables for those machines and batteries. You can see if there is a battery kit available for your machine Here. If you have questions about the specific power needs of your machine, review the 'Power' tab found on the machine's product page, or give us a call at 1-800-356-5221.
    What types of Software are available?
    There are two types of software available: compliance software and advanced software.

    Compliance software provides data such as patient hours, total machine operating hours, pressure setting, and pressure relief information. Advance software includes compliance data, as well as more detailed data such as AHI (Apnea/Hypopnea Index), leakage, average pressure, and a graphical representation of data.

    Compliance software is available with some standard CPAP machines. Advanced software is available with most top of the line CPAP machines, APAP machines, and BiLevel machines.
