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 VPAP Auto 25 dimensions are
4.6" x 6.5" x 5.7", and weighs
under 3 lbs.
ResMed S8 VPAP Auto 25 (VPAP is the same functionality as
BIPAP) features Easy-Breathe technology, which synchronizes the device to your own breathing
pattern for a more comfortable
experience. As with all traditional
bilevel/BIPAP systems, it offers S (spontaneous) mode
which two treatment pressures are set for
inhalation (IPAP) and exhalation (EPAP). It also
offers Auto titration mode, which utilizes a sophisticated
that analyzes data collected on a breath-by-breath
basis, to provide the user with the least amount
of pressure required to overcome any apnea or
hypopnea (shallow breathing) events. This provides
the most effective therapy available, as
the device will never apply a pressure greater
than what is needed. It is also ideal for those individuals
who are uncertain of their pressure requirements.
Auto 25 also offers several comfort features like Vsync.
Vsync is a leak
management algorithm that takes into consideration
the leak rate of the mask, and compensates
accordingly, to insuring that the user is
delivered the exact pressure set on the device.
Another newly added technology is TiControl
- breath synchronization control, which provides the most comfortable and natural bilevel
therapy available to the market. The trigger/cycle sensitivity
option also provides the user more freedom to
control the way the device delivers the breathing
cycle. All these features add up to a VPAP/BIPAP
device that is highly programmable, and adaptive
to the user's needs.
The pressure range for the
VPAP Auto 25 is 4-25cm h20, and includes all the
traditional features like ramp, data recording of
AHI, and compliance information, automatic
altitude adjustment, and automatic power
adjustment from 100-240v. The S8 VPAP Auto 25 also has the
ability to run, with optional adapter, off a
12-volt power source.
