PR System One REMStar 60 Series Pro is the next generation in the proven line of "Pro" CPAP machines by Philips Respironics. In addition to all the popular features found in earlier editions of the line, the 60 Series Pro offers a new level of therapy comfort with the Optional System One 60 Series Heated Tube Humidifier with Heated Tube for 60 Series Machines.
The 60 Series Pro combines the proven comfort of C-Flex Plus pressure relief found in the PR System One REMstar Pro CPAP Machine with C-Flex Plus, the smart technology of Auto-Trial and CPAP-Check modes first offered in PR System One REMstar Pro CPAP Machine with AutoIQ and the leading edge advancements in humidification that come with the System One 60 Series Heated Tube Humidifier with Heated Tube.
Optional System One 60 Series Heated Tube Humidifier with Heated Tube
The optional System One 60 Series Heated Tube Humidifier with Heated Tube has been redesigned to increase surface area for greater humidification output. The humidifier comes packaged with the Heated Tube which easily snaps on and off the humidifier port.
By adding the Heated Tube option to their breakthrough System One Humidity System, Philips Respironics has maximized comfort while managing rainout and potential water damage. The level of relative humidity delivered to the mask is adjusted by analyzing the ambient room temperature and machine airflow. The slim 15mm Heated Tube maintains the desired temperature evenly from the machine to the mask.
Use the on-screen menu to select one of three available levels of relative humidity (70, 80 or 90 percent). Next, adjust the control dial to choose from 5 levels of heated tube temperature, ranging from 4 to 16 degrees above room temperature. The optimum humidification level at the mask is easy to maintain when using this humidification assembly.
The System One Dry Box technology reduces the chance of water damage to the CPAP. Unique design features prevent water from exiting the chamber and entering the machine and a center air outlet port uses a one way valve. This location on the top of the chamber helps to minimize total water displacement. If water were to escape the chamber it is trapped by the Dry Box.
Smart Technology Modes
The smart technology of Auto-Trial Mode and CPAP-Check Mode offer up to 30 nights of auto adjusting capability. During that period of use the system functions as an Auto CPAP delivering an adaptive pressure on a breath by breath basis. Following the set time of the Auto-Trial mode, the machine functions as a CPAP delivering the pressure that the patient was at or below 90% of the time.
The CPAP-Check mode continuously verifies pressure requirements and makes adjustments after every 30 hours of use providing the user with more effective pressure levels over time. An Auto-Trial mode must be a minimum of 3 nights in length. The entire available 30 nights of Auto-Trial do not need to be used continuously. Visit the "Important Tips" tab of this product page to read an example of the Auto-Trial and CPAP-Check modes.
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT an Auto CPAP Machine. It functions as an Auto CPAP during Auto-Trial Mode and switches to CPAP mode during CPAP-Check mode.
C-Flex Plus Pressure Relief
Respironics was the pioneer in offering machines with pressure relief to make breathing with a CPAP more natural by reducing the pressure during exhalation. C-Flex Plus technology takes C-Flex a step further by softening the transition between inhalation and exhalation.
System One Resistance Control
Phillips Respironics developed System One Resistance Control which allows their machines to reach optimal pressure by using 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.
On Screen Data
Sleep data is available on the display screen of the 60 Series Pro. See the Apnea/Hypopnea Index, leak rate as well as the 7 and 30 day average pressure readings. Data is stored in both an on-board memory and a generic SD memory card.
