Lightest, Most Compact CPAP from Industry Leader
The DreamStation Go CPAP breaks barriers for Philips Respironics, with the New Zealand-based company an undisputed leader in sleep therapy technology. Remarkably, the DreamStation Go weighs only 1.86 pounds, making it the lightest CPAP machine from Philips by a wide margin. And the DS Go is compact too, with dimensions registering 5.9 x 5.9 x 2.3 inches – about half the size of its popular full-sized CPAP models, the DreamStation and System One. (As a frame of reference, a standard CD case measures 5.6 x 4.9 inches, making the DS Go not much larger than a short stack of CDs.) And Philips adds even more superlatives to the DreamStation Go spec sheet in the form of its 12mm micro-flexible hose – the lightest and smallest diameter CPAP tubing developed by the company.
But don’t let the DreamStation Go’s small dimensions fool you into thinking it’s short on power. This may be a compact travel CPAP, but the DS Go is a potent design that can deliver the therapeutic benefits of its larger siblings. The DreamStation Go CPAP administers fixed pressure therapy ranging between 4–20 cm H2O, more than enough to fill the majority of prescribed sleep therapy pressure settings.
Advanced Features in Travel CPAP Package
The DreamStation Go also retains many of the advanced features found on its larger, full-sized siblings, including adjustable ramp mode and exhalation pressure relief. Ramp mode lowers pressure at the start of therapy before gradually increasing to the prescribed pressure setting. This gentler beginning pressure helps patients ease their way into sleep, with the ramp time adjustable in five-minute increments between 0 and 45 minutes.
Pressure relief, called Flex relief on the DreamStation series, lowers the airway pressure-flow during exhalation. Flex relief softens the transition from inhalation to exhalation that can distract some sleepers, particularly those with higher pressure prescriptions. The DreamStation Go offers three Flex relief settings (1–3), with 1 providing a small reduction of pressure and progressively more pressure relief on the 2 and 3 settings.
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.
Battery Power for Cordless CPAP Therapy
One of the biggest advantages of a travel CPAP machine is battery power options. The DreamStation is no exception, offering up to 13 hours of cordless therapy from its optional overnight battery pack. The DreamStation Go Travel Battery can power a full night of CPAP therapy and then some (PR’s 13-hour claim is based off a 10cm H2O pressure setting). The lithium-ion battery pack is fully integrated, sliding easily into the DreamStation Go. The battery recharges in 4 to 5 hours when plugged into an AC power outlet. Speaking of which, the DreamStation Go’s AC power supply is fully integrated into the machine too. That means DS Go patients only have to plug the standard six-foot power cord to the machine, with no bulky external power supply complicating matters. Weary travelers who are tired of wrapping up and stowing away the power cord and awkward, heavy adapter on their laptops will appreciate the difference!
Travel-friendly features like its compact size, lightweight and cordless battery are what really make the DreamStation Go a wonderful companion for overnight trips away from home. But these signature features are supplemented by even more benefits for travels, like the convenient USB charging port to power up your phone or tablet. The DreamStation Go is also approved by the FAA for inflight use, making it a hassle-free travel companion when flying.
Last but not least, the optional DreamStation Go Travel Kit features a rigid clamshell storage case and washable bag insert to hold mask/tubing equipment. The accessory Travel Kit is offered in two versions, with the Small case designed to stow the DreamStation Go machine and bag insert while the Medium case is spacious enough to accommodate an extra battery.
Modern User Interface with Integrated Bluetooth
The DreamStation Go represents the latest in CPAP technology from Philips Respironics, and this extends to its user interface. The Go’s modern aesthetics feature a color touchscreen display, much like a smart phone’s. Users can scroll and tap their way through the Go’s intuitive menu options and enjoy the clear, informative screen. The color display also incorporates an ambient light sensor to automatically adjust screen brightness.
Tech-savvy features include standard Bluetooth, with the DreamStation Go fully compatible with Philips Respironics’ DreamMapper app. Billed as a “patient self-management tool,” the DreamMapper app makes it easy to track therapy, allowing users to sync data from multiple devices on a unified dashboard visible on your phone or tablet. So no need to worry about tracking compliance while out on the road, because the DreamMapper can combine therapy data from both the DreamStation Go and your full-sized DreamStation or System One CPAP machine at home. Connected care features on the DS Go also include a self-diagnostic “Performance Check” to troubleshoot issues and ensure your CPAP therapy is running at optimal efficiency.
