Full-sized Performance in Mini APAP Package
The DreamStation Go Auto is half the size of Philips Respironics’ full-sized DreamStation flagship, but its compact dimensions (5.9 x 5.9 x 2.3 inches) and lightweight (1.86 pounds) don’t mean it skimps on performance or advanced features. The DreamStation Go Auto administers auto-adjusting PAP therapy for pressures ranging between 4 and 20 cm H2O, fulfilling the performance demands required by the majority of obstructive sleep apnea prescriptions.
As an APAP (AutoPAP) machine, the DreamStation Go Auto adjusts pressure-flow automatically based on the patient’s immediate needs. As such, the DS Go Auto is more flexible than standard fixed-pressure PAP machines, like its DreamStation Go CPAP sibling (although the Go Auto can be set to a fixed CPAP pressure if so desired). The DreamStation Auto sources the same Flex relief technology featured on Philips’ standard-sized DreamStation and System One machines. Flex relief modulates pressure-flow based on the patient’s breathing pattern, slightly decreasing pressure at the beginning of exhalation. This subtle shift in pressure makes for a more natural breathing sensation, with pressure resistance during exhalation a common distraction for light sleepers or patients with higher pressure settings.
The DreamStation Go APAP utilizes several more auto-adjusting advanced features, like Smart Ramp, which helps ease patients into sleep by beginning PAP therapy at a lower pressure before gradually ramping up to the full prescription setting. The Ramp pressure settings are adjustable, along with the transition duration from 0 to 45 minutes. The DS Go Auto also adjusts automatically to elevation changes, ensuring your therapy runs efficiently wherever you may roam.
DreamStation Go Heated Humidifier
The new Dreamstation Go Heated Humidifier is designed to complement the ease, convenience and performance of your DreamStation Go, allowing you to keep your therapy going in comfort.
DreamStation Go’s optional heated humidifier uses tap, bottled or distilled water so travelers don’t have the inconvenience of packing or purchasing distilled water when you arrive at your destination.
Now you can bring along a new level of comfort when you travel with your DreamStation Go with our new heated humidifier. DreamStation Go was designed so you can enjoy reliable, all-night humidification that’s engineered for ease and convenience, no matter where you go or how you get there.
Overview of Heated Humidifier
Heated humidifier - The heated humidifier is the primary source of humidification. Humidification is controlled by adjusting the temperature of the heater plate. The heater plate is then used to heat water found in the water tank.
Water tank - The water tank stores the water that will be used by the heated humidifier.
Connecting to your DreamStation Go CPAP
- Remove the humidifier beauty panel from your DreamStation Go by pulling from either side of the panel.
- Line up the front of the therapy device to the front of the humidifier. Make sure the air outlet port on the therapy device lines up with the air inlet port on the humidifier.
- Slide the therapy device and humidifier together until they snap into place.
- Attach the tube to the heated humidifier.
- To access the humidifier settings in the Therapy Off menu, navigate to the My Comfort menu. From here you can view or adjust the following humidifier settings.
Integrated Battery Power Option
A highlight feature on the DreamStation Go is its integrated lithium-ion battery. The optional DreamStation Go Travel Battery can easily power a full night of therapy, with Philips claiming up to 13 hours of performance on a single charge (based on a 10 cm H2O pressure setting). The lithium-ion battery pack fits directly into the DreamStation Go Auto machine and recharges when plugged into an AC power source, with Philips claiming a full recharge time between 4 and 5 hours. The DreamStation Go battery finally gives patients a viable option for off-the-grid APAP therapy, as extra battery packs can power multiple nights of cordless therapy.
Lightweight, Flexible 12mm Tubing
The DreamStation Go includes a flexible 12mm hose – the smallest diameter and lightest CPAP tubing developed by Philips. The DreamStation Go Micro Flex 12mm Hose comes as standard equipment in a six-foot length, however, the DS Go also offers settings to accommodate larger 15mm or 22mm tubing options.
Sleek, User-Friendly Design with DreamMapper App
The DreamStation Go Auto is a truly modern design, incorporating a color touchscreen interface and built-in Bluetooth connectivity. It’s smartphone-like features make old-school CPAP machines seem like rotary phones by comparison. The DS Go color touchscreen display makes it easy for patients to tap and scroll their way through intuitive menus as they select from the wide variety of setting options. The DreamStation Go Auto’s standard Bluetooth provides easy integration with the Philips Respironics DreamMapper app. Thanks to the convenient DreamMapper patients can track and sync their therapy data from multiple devices, accessed online through their phone or tablet.
Sleep Therapy Designed for Travel
The DreamStation Go APAP’s diminutive size and weight make it easy to stow away for travelers, but Philips added even more features to make it a travel-friendly design. The DS Go’s integrated USB charging port lets travelers power up a mobile device, like their phone or tablet. And the Go also utilizes an integrated AC power supply. This last feature may not sound that convenient unless you’ve traveled with a laptop and its heavy, hard-to-stow power cord/adaptor assembly. Another DS Go travel bonus is FAA approval for air travel and clearance for in-flight use (while approved by the FAA, individual airlines determine their own rules for use of CPAP devices during flight). Philips also designed the accessory DreamStation Go Travel Cases, available in two sizes (Small/Medium) to streamline packing your travel CPAP machine and equipment.
