The certified refurbished ResMed S9 Escape Auto™ is an auto-adjusting CPAP machine used for the treatment of sleep apnea. The H5i™ heated humidifier eliminates dryness that is a possible side effect of CPAP use without a humidifier. This model is refurbished and all consumable accessories have been replaced with new parts (i.e. tubing, water chamber, filters, etc). This model includes a standard 90-day warranty.
Important Note: Every Certified Refurbished CPAP Machine comes with a 90 day limited warranty however, you can extend your warranty out to an entire year for ONLY $99.00!
Product Information For New Model Listed Below
This is an auto-adjusting CPAP machine that provides variable pressures throughout the night to determine the optimal pressure setting you need in certain body positions or stages of sleep where more pressure may be needed. The ResMed S9 Escape Auto™ with H5i™ humidifier (36012) combines an intelligent algorithm with Easy-Breathe expiratory pressure relief (EPR) to dynamically adjust pressure for maximum comfort. Designed for a more natural breathing experience, the S9 Escape Auto™ delivers whisper-quiet therapy in a smooth waveform. The heated humidifier provides you with climate control to assist in dryness or irritation from direct pressure of the CPAP machine. This means a more restful night for both you and your partner. With its sleek contours and compact size, the S9 Escape Auto™ looks as natural at your bedside as a clock radio.

Benefits Of AutoSet™ Devices
AutoSet™ devices adjust pressure on a breath-by-breath basis to suit patient needs as they change throughout the night. As a result, patients receive the minimum pressure required for effective therapy. The lower average pressures improve comfort, reduce pressure-related side effects, and lead to more consistent use of therapy.
How Do The AutoSet™ Devices Know To Adjust Pressure?
After you fall asleep and your pressure needs begin to vary, your AutoSet™ device responds to three separate parameters: inspiratory flow limitation, snore, and apnea. AutoSet™ devices act preemptively by increasing pressure in response to inspiratory flow limitation and snore, both of which typically precede obstructive apneas. The AutoSet™ device calculates the pressure you need based on the severity of the event. This early intervention prevents obstructive apneas and reduces respiratory arousals.
How Do The AutoSet™ Devices Handle Hypopnea Events?
AutoSet™ devices respond to obstructive hypopnea events when they are associated with flow limitation or snoring. Hypopneas that are central in origin (related to your central nervous system, not physical obstruction) should not be treated with increased pressure.
Why Do AutoSet™ Devices Work With Only Some CPAP Masks? Why Not All Masks?
This is a more difficult question to answer. The short answer is that all masks have different physical characteristics and an AutoSet™ device needs to know the specific characteristics of a mask for best performance. AutoSet™ devices respond to conditions like leak, snore, and inspiratory flow limitation. To properly treat a person with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), an AutoSet™ device needs to know exactly how much of the conditions it detects come from the mask. All masks have some degree of a leak to ensure users get fresh air. All masks also have some degree of resistance by virtue of their materials, contours, and leak. So using a mask that is “unknown” to the AutoSet™ device won’t let it do its job properly.
