one of the best travel machines on the market, the
S8 Series from ResMed remains a popular choice for
CPAP users looking for a small, quiet, reliable
CPAP for nightly use, secondary location, or for
travel. The S8 AutoSet II CPAP dimensions are
4.6" x 6.5" x 5.7", and weighs
under 3 lbs.
a couple years of the initial release of the S8
Series, ResMed patented a new, quieter blower
motor. The decision was made to simply create
another release within the ResMed S8 line with the
new blower - and so the S8 II series was born.
ResMed S8 AutoSet II CPAP represents the
first Auto titration device of the ResMed S8 line
to offer EPR in both CPAP and Auto CPAP Mode. EPR,
or Expiratory Pressure Relief is a comfort feature
that can be turned on or off - if turned on, the
device will soften, or reduce the pressure during
exhalation, making it easier to exhale.
II comes with a considerable number of features
including AHI and compliance data recording, ramp,
altitude adjustment, automatic voltage adjustment from
110-240V, as well as a capability of running off a 12volt
power source. A generous LCD screen display allows
for easy reading. These devices are noted for
their very low failure rate, and portability. Pressure range
for this, and all CPAP devices within the S8 line,
is 4cm-20cm h20. In Auto CPAP mode, the machine
will automatically adjust the pressure to provide
the least amount of pressure needed to overcome
any apnea or hypopnea (shallow breathing) events.
This mode is ideal for individuals who are uncertain
of their therapeutic pressures.
with all our gently used CPAP devices, the ResMed S8 AutoSet II has a 6
