Learn More About Your New Machine

Looking for an auto-titrating machine with the comfort of exhalation relief which is small, easy to travel with, and has quiet operation? Consider the features offered in the iCH Auto CPAP Machine with PVA and Built-In Heated Humidifier.

Features:

  • Auto Adjusting Technology
  • PVA - Pressure Relief at Exhalation
  • Built-In Heated Humidifier
  • Anti Back-Flow Humidifier Design
  • Quiet Operation - 28 dBA
  • Sleek, Modern Look
  • Small Footprint
  • Built-In Alarm Clock
  • Travel Friendly
  • On Screen Sleep Events Data
  • Leak Compensation & Auto Altitude Adjust


Auto-Adjusting Technology

The iCH Auto is set to a range of pressures and continually adjusts the delivered air stream within the range to provide the ideal pressure during sleep. Pressure can be set in .5 cmH20 increments between 4 and 20 cmH2O. Alternately, the iCH Auto can be set in CPAP mode to deliver a single therapy pressure all night long.

PVA - Pressure Relief at Exhalation

The iCH Auto includes the comfort feature PVA (Pressure Variation Algorithm) designed to provide a drop in pressure at the time of exhalation. The drop in pressure eases the process of breathing out against the air stream making the therapy more natural. PVA can be set to 3 levels with 1 being the lowest level of drop in pressure at the time of exhalation and 3 being the largest drop in pressure. Or, turn the PVA function to zero to turn off the pressure relief feature. The PVA function is represented on the machine's display screen by the letter "C".

Built-In Heated Humidifier

Recognizing the important part humidified air plays in therapy comfort, the iCH Auto offers a built-in heated humidifier in one compact unit. The humidifier is designed to prevent back flow so that water is less likely to get into the machine. There are 6 easily adjustable humidifier settings to allow the user to find the most comfortable level.

The chamber holds 300ml of water, just over 10 ounces, and will provide at least 8 hours of use. The humidifier can be turned off with a setting of zero (0) to use it as a cool passover humidifier. Under the humidifier chamber is a soothing blue light that can serve as a night light. This light can be turned on and off by pressing the up and down arrow on the machine control panel.

Design Features

The iCH Auto is a feature packed machine engineered in a compact and lightweight bundle with an innovative design. The small footprint means it can fit easily on a bedside table without disrupting the feel of the room. The quiet operation (28 dB) allows it to fit easily into routines.

The iCH has a built in alarm clock that can be set to sound an audible alarm. Mute the alarm using the power button. When not in use the display of the iCH shows the current time.

The iCH has a hidden handle built into the machine housing to make picking it up easy and secure. People who travel for business or recreation find it easy to pack into their carry on luggage. Or use the included travel bag designed to hold the machine, power supply and hose as well as most mask types.

Data Features

Sleep event information is displayed on the screen of the iCH Auto providing data about the effectiveness of the most recent therapy session including:

Data Feature Definition
Apnea Index Number of apneas (large reduction in airflow for at least 10 seconds) per hour
Hypopnea Index Number of hypopneas (smaller reduction in airflow for 10 - 60 seconds) per hour
Snore Index Number of snoring events (vibratory changes during inhalation) per hour
Flow Limitation Index Number of times per hour the upper airway is partially closed

To see the latest data when the machine is in the Standby mode displaying the time, simultaneously press and hold the Up and Down buttons to see the latest data. Move through the information by pushing the Menu button. The information displayed is for the most recent treatment session only and will no longer be available from the display when the machine is turned off. The machine has on board data storage and an SD card.

Advanced Features

Low Pressure alert (sometimes referenced as a Leak Alert function) notifies the user when there is a large air leak in the pressure pathway. The display shows "Low P" and an audible alarm sounds. The audible alert can be turned off.

Leak Compensation helps to maintain an even pressure output even where there are small air losses in the system.

Auto Altitude Adjustment takes care of providing the appropriate therapy level in different altitudes. The iCH can be operated in altitudes up to 8,000 ft for pressures up to 18 cmH20 and up to 5,000 ft for pressures of 18.5 to 20 cmH2O.

Filter: The iCH machine filter is located on the back of machine housing. To locate the filter remove the humidifier chamber. The filter is on the side opposite the air port. The manufacturer states that the specifically designed location of the filter is one of the reasons for the quiet operation of the machine. Air intake for the machine is more than adequate.

This machine uses only a washable foam filter. The manufacturer suggests washing the foam filter once every two weeks. Hold the filter under clear running water, do not use any soap or other cleaning solution. Gently squeeze the filter to remove excess water. Allow to air dry before replacing in the machine.

Humidifier Information and Care: The humidifier chamber should be cleaned by hand with warm soapy water. It is not designed to go through the dishwasher.

Light: The blue light under the water chamber can be turned off by pressing the "down" arrow button. Press the "up" to turn on the light under the chamber.

NOTE: As with all machines, to avoid getting water from the chamber into the machine, remove the humidifier chamber from the machine housing before moving or lifting the machine. The chamber is designed to guard against water entering the machine - but caution is always the best approach.

Sleep Data: The iCH Auto holds data in an on board memory (including compliance and therapy effectiveness information) that can only be read using the machine software. The software can be sold only to a Clinician or Physician. CPAP.com does NOT sell the software. It cannot be sold to customers. The only information displayed to the screen are the Indexes as detailed on the Features tab - and only for the last sleep session. As soon as the machine is turned off, the displayed data is no longer available from the display.

Alarm Tone: The alarm has only one tone setting available and cannot play music.

Battery Operation: An inverter such as 400 Watt DC to AC Power Inverter is required to use the iCH with a battery. The inverter itself will draw approximately half of the battery run time.

Apex Manufacturer Warranty on the iCH Auto CPAP Machine with PVA and Built-In Heated Humidifier: The iCH Auto CPAP Machine with PVA and Built-In Heated Humidifier has a 2 Year Manufacturer Warranty.

Battery Operation: The iCH does not have DC capability and requires the use of an inverter to operate with a battery. This is an example of a product that would be required: 150 Watt DC to AC Power Sine Wave Inverter. Always keep in mind, the inverter itself will draw approximately half of the battery run time.

Freedom Travel Battery

The Freedom Travel Battery can be used to connect to this device, but only when using the 150 Watt Sine Wave Inverter. The Freedom Travel Battery weighs only 1.7 pounds, and is perfect for any excursion. It's also FAA compliant and can be used in-flight, and is able to be used off-the-grid.

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, 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.
How can I compare different machines?

How do I choose the machine that is right for me?
We provide our customers with many tools to make informed decisions about their machine purchases. Options include:
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, APAP 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.
What is humidification?
Humidification adds moisture to the CPAP air, reducing irritation to the nasal passages caused by the increased airflow.

CPAP air is an irritant - to one degree or another - to everyone. In some cases the irritation dries out the nasal passages and may cause bleeding. It may also cause swelling, excess mucous, congestion or sneezing. The irritation may create a very fertile ground for infections to begin. The irritation may be cumulative, building up over time. The only way to reduce the irritation is to add moisture.

Humidification is therefore a critical part of CPAP Therapy.


There are two types of humidifiers:

Heated Humidifiers
Cold (Passover) Humidifiers
Are prescriptions required for mask, machine, humidifier, and EPAP purchases?

Yes. Federal law requires we have a valid prescription on file before we ship your mask, machine, humidifier, or EPAP therapy, including Provent and Bongo RX. You will also need a prescription to purchase the Nightbalance POSA device.


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: 713.541.7377
  • Email your prescription to cpap@cpap.com
  • Upload your prescription in your account, under the Prescriptions Section
  • Ask your doctor to fill out our prescription form. We have both a standard prescription form and an EPAP prescription form.


For more information on prescriptions, please see our Prescription Section of the Learning Center.


Which CPAP masks work on which machines?

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.

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.

Good value

Verified purchase | May. 08, 2016 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
Nice machine, quiet and effective. It is light but the transformer that comes with it doubles the weight of the unit for travel. I didn't expect that.

This Cpap machine works great. The auto sense is much better than my old machine with the pressure setting that never changed. The humidifier is slightly more difficult to disconnect and refill but is easy enough to use.
