Bluetooth Connection to SleepMapper App
This 60 Series BiPAP® Auto machine uses Bluetooth technology to connect to the Philips Respironics SleepMapper app. Download the app onto a smartphone or tablet (not included) to build a personal account. Please Note: The SleepMapper app is compatible with Apple's iOS 6 or newer and an Android 2.2 or newer. Once installed, the app will pair with the machine each night to provide results the next morning. The results may be used to review compliance between a doctor and patient.
Included Heated Tube Humidifier
The Bluetooth 60 Series BiPAP® Auto machine connects to the PR System One 60 Series Heated Tube Humidifier with Heated Tube to pull moisture from the water chamber into the therapy air. The heated tube included with the humidifier connects to the humidifier port to help sustain the warm air as it travels through the hose. Heating the air may reduce rainout in the mask, as well as provide comfort for those suffering from dryness.
System One Dry Box was incorporated into the design of the humidifier to help prevent water damage. The air outlet port is located on the top center section of the chamber to minimize water displacement. In the instance that water may escape from the water chamber, it will be trapped by the Dry Box before entering the machine.
Bi-Flex Pressure Relief
Bi-Flex is a pressure relief comfort feature used to create a more natural breathing pattern during CPAP therapy. The PR System One BiPAP® Auto with Bluetooth and Flex Technology work together to provide relief during three points in the breathing cycle. Pressure is reduced by .5 increments during the transition from exhalation to inhalation, inhalation to exhalation, and during exhalation. The Bi-Flex setting can be adjusted up to 1.5 cm H2O for maximum comfort.
Advanced Event Detection
Philips Respironics uses a patented algorithm to monitor breathing patterns in order to respond to abnormal pressure changes. The Auto-Trak system measures variable triggers and cycle thresholds to automatically adjust the pressure and compensate for leakage.
The System One 60 Series BiPAP® Auto with Bluetooth is designed to act proactively by identifying aspects of the breathing cycle. In addition to Auto-Trak Sensitivity and Flex Technology, the BiPAP® is designed to detect events corresponding to vibratory snoring, clear airway apnea, obstructed airway apnea, periodic breathing, Respiratory Effort-Related Arousals (RERA), hypopneas, leaks, and flow limitations.
This machine detects these events, causing the REMstar Auto algorithm to respond by automatically adjusting pressure levels to clear the apnea. Within a few seconds of recorded flow reduction, the PR BiPAP® Auto pulses a series of pressures to determine if the apnea has been cleared.
System One 60 Series BiPAP® Auto responses include:
- Proactive Performance: Proactive performance recognizes and controls early symptoms of flow limitation, which can lead to an actual obstruction or apnea. The Auto algorithm uses two airflow measurements to prevent pressures from becoming too high.
- Leak Management: The BiPAP® Auto with Bluetooth will monitor mask leaks and compare results against an expected leak rate. Pressure is adjusted automatically as needed to help maintain therapy pressure to the user, including the ability to reduce pressure to help re-establish a mask seal.
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea: OSA is defined as events that reduce 80% of airflow for a minimum of 10 seconds.
- Hypopnea: A hypopnea is an event that reduces 40% of airflow for a minimum of 10 seconds.
- Flow Limitation: Flow limitation is measured through four different baselines of the breathing waveform: Roundness, Flatness, Peak, and Shape.
- Vibratory Snoring: Snoring can sometimes imitate a hypopnea event. Advanced detection allows the PR BiPAP® Auto with Bluetooth to measure vibrations and partial airway blockage.
- RERAs: Respiratory Effort-Related Arousals differ from a hypopnea or snoring event in that a RERA shows increasing respiratory effort with each breath, culminating in a shift in brain wave activity and not necessarily a result of obstruction. Periodic breathing conditions such as Cheyne-Stokes respiration and central apneas are distinguishable from obstructed apnea or snoring events.
- SmartRamp: SmartRamp helps manage apnea events while users attempt to fall asleep. This System One 60 Series device can react to an event as the Ramp is progressing.
System One Resistance Control
Philips Respironics developed System One Resistance Control, which is a numbering system designed to help their machines recognize the CPAP mask. Please Note: The feature is only available with a Respironics mask as they are the only CPAP mask with a resistance control number. Resistance Control is intended to associate the machine with the mask to create a compatible system which corresponds to the specific mask type.
On Screen Data Display
The display screen is designed to make sleep data available. Use the screen to view the Apnea/Hypopnea Index, the Leak Rate, and the average pressure readings taken over a 7 days and 30 days. Data is stored on the machine as well as on a SD memory card.

PR System One Humidifier Modes
PR System One REMStar 60 Series machines version 1.22 or higher have two humidification modes:
- Classic Humidification
- System One Humidification
Version Note: To determine the version of the software installed on a PR System One REMStar 60 machine, unplug the machine and plug it back into an outlet. The version is displayed on the screen when the unit is first plugged into an outlet. The humidification settings are displayed only when a PR System One Heated Humidifier is attached to the machine.
Classic Mode Humidification
The Classic mode of humidification allows the CPAP user to control the heat setting on the humidifier. The user will select "Classic" mode settings C1, C2, C3, C4, or C5. The "C" in front of the humidification setting indicates "Classic." C1 is the lowest level of humidification and C5 is the highest level of humidification.
Please Note: If the PR System One Heated Tube for 60 Series Machines is attached to the humidifier the Classic mode humidification will not be offered, only System One Humidification Mode. To use the Classic mode of humidification attach a non-heated tube to the humidifier.
System One Humidification Mode
The System One Humidification uses the technology of the system to set the level of humidification delivered. The machine makes the decision based on the humidity present in the room air. The CPAP user decides how much they want to receive. A setting of 1 delivers the lowest humidity level and a setting of 5 delivers the highest level. The humidification setting will show 1 - 5. The letter "C" will NOT precede the number.
Passover Humidification, Heat Off
To turn the heated humidifier off, set the humidifier to zero "0". The air from the machine will pass over the water in the chamber acting as a passover Humidifier.
Setting the Humidification Mode and LevelPlease Note: The humidifier menu will only show when the humidifier is attached to the machine.
First, use the wheel on the machine to select the 'Setup' menu. Then, scroll through the menu to locate SYSTEM ONE Humidification. Select 'On' to allow the machine to determine the level of humidification delivered throughout the system based on the 1-5 setting. When in the SYSTEM ONE Humidification mode there is no letter indicator next to the number.
To control heat manually, select the 'Off' option. Then, set the humidification level by adjusting the number to the right of 'Humidifier,' which is found under SYSTEM ONE Humidification. Select a number within the range of 1 to 5. The letter "C" found in front of the humidification number represents the word 'Classic'. The lowest heat is recorded as C1, while C5 is the highest heat level.
Power Supply and DC Cable Compatibility Tips
Please Note: To power the humidifier, the Respironics' 80 Watt power supply is included with the purchase of a 60 Series Pro with Bluetooth and Heated Tube Humidifier. If the user chooses to use the CPAP machine without the humidifier and heated tube, the 60 Watt power supply may be used.
The External 80 Watt Power Supply for PR System One REMstar 60 Series Machines is NOT compatible with other versions of PR System One machines. The connection peg that plugs into a PR System One REMStar 60 Series machine is a specific size and will fit only this machine. The external power supply for this machine has different specifications than the External Power Supply for PR System One REMstar CPAP and BiPAP® Machines used with other machines in the Philips Respironics lines. The Power Cord that plugs the external power supply into the wall outlet is the same for all System One Machines.
The Shielded DC Cord for PR System One 60 Series Machines that is compatible with PR System One 60 Series Machines works ONLY with PR System One 60 Series Machines.
