System One Humidity Control
With advanced sensing technology that monitors room temperature and room humidity, the device will deliver target humidity output as set by the patient while also dramatically reducing rainout.
Benefit: Studies have proven that heated humidification greatly helps patient comfort.
However, it can also lead to rainout. The Sleep Therapy System provides the humidification
and eliminates rainout in the tube; a combination that is not found in any other device on the
System One Resistance Control
System One Resistance Control achieves complete system comfort by enabling the device
and mask to work optimally together. Through simple settings, the technology instructs the
device to compensate for variable resistance characteristics related to different Philips
Benefit: With enhanced pressure delivery for every mask, patients can enjoy the full benefits of clinically-proven Flex comfort technologies which may lead to increased compliance.
Advanced event detection
The new sleep system addresses advanced sleep assessment parameters, including AHI,
leak, flow limitation and RERAs to provide optimum therapy for obstructive sleep apnea
(OSA). With the new system, events can now be verified by looking at detailed patient flow
waveform data captured by the device. But the real advancement is its ability to point out
when the patient is experiencing symptoms beyond classic OSA and may require more
advanced sleep therapy.
Benefit: Our new sleep therapy system monitors every breath and can recognize and report
when a patient may be experiencing more complex respiratory conditions during sleep.
These conditions are commonly associated with other comorbidities such as heart disease
which may be treated with a different type of sleep therapy.
Flex Family technologies
The clinically-proven Flex technologies are an excellent way to establish improved patient
comfort and increased compliance. Thanks to an advanced Digital Auto-Trak algorithm that
detects the onset of inspiration and exhalation, Flex technologies deliver just the right
pressure relief for every breath, making it easier for patients to adapt to therapy. The newest
enhancement, C-Flex+ is designed for advanced units when in fixed CPAP mode. It
provides relief at the beginning of exhalation and softens the pressure transition from
inhalation to exhalation.
Benefit: Flex pressure-relief technology makes sleep therapy more comfortable by reducing
pressure at the beginning of exhalation when patients need it most. During the first 90 days
of therapy, patients using CPAP with C-Flex achieved an average of 4.8 hours of nightly use
compared to 3.1 hours of nightly use by patients on conventional CPAP.*
Encore data management and reporting
Encore patient management provides timely, secure access to comprehensive patient
therapy data. Through a simplified intuitive interface and enhanced security, notifications,
reminders, contact records, patient data and reports are even easier to access. The new
devices now include on-board data memory. And information is readily available through
multiple options of data transfer and reporting, including memory cards and modems.
Benefit: Putting patient intelligence in the hands of caregivers is a key component of
effective patient therapy and compliance management. Philips Respironics web-based
system makes it quick, simple and cost-effective to obtain vital patient information.
