This product is no longer available. For the latest machine in the series, please consider the Philips Respironics DreamStation CPAP. The DreamStation line of CPAP machines are among the quietest in the world, registering at only 25.8 decibels, and are so quiet you can barely hear them.

The REMstar Plus sports a small, sleek device and case, a less obtrusive profile with tubing connected in the back and a "hidden" water chamber.
The plus offers lighted primary touch controls for power, ramp, and C-Flex as well as a LCD display and controls for advanced reporting and set up.
The optional integrated humidifier has simple controls and an easy to turn humidification dial. The water chamber is easy to remove, fill, replace, and delivers continuous humidification throughout the night.
The REMstar Plus is convenient for travel with or without the integrated humidifier. The standard travel carry case has been updated with additional compartments and sleek design.

Any mask will work with any machine, with one important exception. The ResMed AirMini is only compatible with certain ResMed CPAP masks. Compatible masks for the AirMini are as follows:
- ResMed AirFit™ N20 Nasal Mask
- ResMed AirFit™ F20 Full Face
- ResMed AirTouch™ F20 Full Face
- ResMed AirFit™ P10 Nasal Pillow
When considering another CPAP, APAP or BiPAP machine from ResMed or any other manufacturer, mask compatibility extends to all brands. The AirMini uses non-standard tubing to connect the machine to the mask, and is the primary reason why other masks won't work with the AirMini. Despite this issue, many of our customers consider the AirMini to be an excellent machine.

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.

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. 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.

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, nasal pillows which seal at the nasal opening, or nasal prong masks that seal inside the nares. 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.
Love my new CPAP - Great product

First off, let me say that my review of this product is tuned more toward the manufacturer than the product itself. I have only had my M-Series Plus C-Flex machine for a short period of time and am honestly still getting used to it. I will say that the reviews I read on this and other sites helped me make an informed decision and at this point in time - I am completely satisfied with my new CPAP machine. I purchased the bundled product with the heated humidifier - and as someone who refused to utilize a humidifier in the past, I must say I am more than pleasantly surprised by the performance of the humidifier as it works in tandem with the M-Series Plus. When I went in for my initial diagnostic sleep study - I physically removed the humidifier from the machine provided to me by the clinic as it made me feel as if I were drowning. That study was conducted 12 years ago and up until I purchased these products, my stance had not changed on the humidifier. I use the present humidifier on a very low setting which makes it more passive - and the heated, moist air that I am breathing in is such a huge improvement over what I had become use to. When I was initially diagnosed, I was prescribed a specific machine due to the fact that I traveled extensively - the machine was a Respironics Solo Plus LX. I was not given an option as my insurance company and Family Physician were working hand in hand on which machine they deemed most suitable. I trusted their judgment and am finding out now that their choice of the Respironics machine was truly a stroke of genius! The machine was heavy, bulky and a little bit noisy, but according to the reviews I have read on this and other sites - had more staying power than any other brand I have found on the market. My Solo Plus LX has over 35,000 hours of use on it and still to this day works as well as it did the day I purchased it back in 1998. I had to send it back to the factory for a repair one time about 7 years ago due to accidentally dropping it from a 5 foot high bunk - on to a very solid floor, but other than that it has required no maintenance. The only reason I chose to replace the machine was an as of yet unfounded paranoia about the machine breaking down at the worst possible moment. My wife and I discussed it and decided that having a "back up" machine was crucial - especially considering the fact that I had already received more than my money's worth out of the original Solo Plus LX. Imagine my surprise at how far the technology had come with regard to CPAP machines and the treatment of sleep apnea! My new M-Series Plus C-Flex CPAP machine seems almost like a work of science fiction to me. There are so many options for controlling the air flow to include adjustments for altitude and the C-Flex system itself. The auto on/off and mask alerts are both new to me as well! I purchased a Respironics battery pack to accompany my CPAP and so far have been completely satisfied with its performance and ability to hold a charge - as well as relatively fast recharging times. I made this purchase completely out of pocket and will say that I do not consider one penny to have been wasted. I am currently working in Iraq and had the machine shipped to me here - CPAP.com somehow managed to get the package shipped to me in less than half the time it typically takes to receive parcels from the United States. The overall cost of the CPAP-Humidifier bundle; Respironics battery pack; 12V power cord and ComfortGel mask - was actually $700 less than the cost of my original machine. Times have definitely changed with regard to the treatment of Sleep Apnea. In an attempt to summarize my opinion on the product being reviewed specifically I will state the following: This machine is extremely lightweight - comes in a perfectly useful travel case - operates quietly and has many options that increase your ability to find a comfortable manner of sleeping - with complete regard for your personal preferences. Based on my time invested studying the CPAP market and my recent purchase, I would recommend the M-Series Plus and Respironics in general to any consumer in need of a quality product that is durable and one that does not skimp on features that are crucial to a productive night's sleep. more...

I purchased this as a secondary machine, as I split my week between two locations. The UK National Health Service provided me with a Respironics M Series Plus for home, and this unit is almost identical. The only difference I have found is that the menus in the cpap.com version use text, whilst the European version uses icons. The machine is quiet and compact, and the supplied travel case fits snuggly. The power supply is international, so all I need for UK use, is a replacement power cable, which is easily purchased from any electronics store. I have only ever had Respironics M Series machine, so I cannot compare them with other brands, but I think the C-Flex setting is very helpful. I'd recommend the optional heated humidifier as an essential accessory. more...
