CPAP C-Check Auto Bi-Level AutoB Mode This screen displays the therapy mode setting. Depending on the therapy device model, you can select CPAP mode, CPAP- Check (C-Check) mode, Auto-CPAP (Auto) mode, Bi-Level mode, or Auto Bi-Level (AutoB) mode. Note: CPAP-Check mode (C-Check) delivers CPAP therapy while automatically adjusting the pressure level to meet patient needs over the long term. Every 30 hours of therapy use, the therapy device evaluates the patient obstructive respiratory disturbance index  (ORDI) and increments pressure ± 1 cm H2O if needed. The range of adjustments that can be made over time is limited to  ± 3 cm H2 O of the CPAPCheck pressure setting, in 1 cm H2O increments.
Opti-Start Opti-Start This feature starts an Auto-CPAP therapy session at a tarting pressure that is closer to the previous session’s 90%  pressure, in order to reduce the likelihood of any residual events at the beginning of a therapy session. You can enable or disable this feature.
EZ-Start EZ-Start This feature reduces the therapy pressure setting for the first few days of operation and gradually increases this setting until the prescription therapy pressure is reached. For fixed CPAP mode, the initial pressure will be reduced to half of the prescription CPAP pressure setting, but no lower than 5 cm H2O. For Auto CPAP mode, EZ-Start reduces the maximum Auto pressure to 1cm H2O above the minimum Auto pressure setting.  For either model, after each day of successful use the therapy session was greater than 4 hours), the therapy pressure will increase by 1 cm H2O until the prescription pressure is reached.  From that point forward, the therapy device would operate in normal  CPAP, CPAP-Check, or Auto CPAP mode. If the patient has not reached their prescription pressure after 30 days of EZ-Start, then the therapy pressure will increase by 1 cm H2O per day until the prescription pressure is reached. You can enable or disable EZ-Start only if CPAP, CPAP-Check, or Auto CPAP mode is enabled.
A-TRIAL A-Trial This Auto-Trial feature will enable the device to deliver Auto-CPAP therapy for a selectable number of days of patient use. You can enable or disable this feature.

Description

Icon - 1 Humidification This setting allows you to select the Humidification Mode being used. You can choose between Fixed or Adaptive (A)  Humidification. If a heated tube is attached to the device, then the device will automatically switch to Heated Tube Humidification  Mode. The fixed mode applies constant heat to the humidifier heater plate. Under certain conditions and settings, this mode can allow condensation to occur in the tube. Adaptive mode adapts the heater plate temperature to the ambient conditions in the room and is designed to not allow condensation to occur in the tube.
Icon - 1 Humidifier This setting allows you to choose the desired humidity setting for the humidifier: 0, 1,2, 3, 4, or 5.
Icon - 2 Tube Temperature This setting allows you to choose the desired temperature for the heated tube: 0, 1,2, 3, 4, or 5.
SMART
Icon - 3
SmartRamp When SmartRamp mode is enabled, the therapy device’s ramp function utilizes an Auto titrating algorithm during the ramp period.  It allows patients the ability to stay at lower pressures during the ramp period, to improve their acclimation to therapy. SmartRamp mode functions differently, depending on the therapy mode that the device is using. *In CPAP or CPAP-Check mode, the SmartRamp applies the Auto-CPAP algorithm during the ramp period. The  Ramp Start pressure becomes the Auto Minimum pressure during the ramp period. The Auto Maximum pressure during ramp is the  CPAP or CPAP-Check pressure. *In Auto mode, the SmartRamp applies the Auto-CPAP algorithm during the ramp period. The Ramp  Start pressure becomes the Auto Minimum pressure during the ramp period. The Auto Maximum pressure during ramp is the Auto  Minimum under normal Auto mode.

*In BiPAP or Auto-BiPAP mode, the SmartRamp applies the modified version of the Auto-BiPAP algorithm during the ramp period. The Ramp Start pressure becomes the EPAP Minimum pressure, and the Pressure Support Minimum pressured is applied.

The IPAP Maximum pressure during ramp is the EPAP or EPAP  Minimum under normal BiPAP or Auto-BiPAP mode.

The SmartRamp period will terminate in either of two ways:

1) If SmartRamp pressure reaches the minimum pressure of the therapy mode selected, then SmartRamp ends, and the device  continues to deliver therapy under the selected therapy mode, or:

2) If SmartRamp pressure does not reach the minimum pressure of the therapy mode selected by the end of the Ramp Time, then pressure is increased at a rate of approximately 1 cm H2O per minute. Once the pressure reaches the minimum pressure of the therapy mode selected, then the device will continue to deliver therapy for that mode. If SmartRamp mode is not enabled, then the standard, linear pressure ramp mode is active.

Icon - 4 Ramp Time When you set the Ramp time, the device increases the therapy pressure from the value set on the Ramp start screen to the therapy pressure setting over the length of time specified here. If the therapy pressure is set to 4 cm H2 O (the minimum setting),  this screen will not display. Note: Depending on the therapy mode,  the therapy pressure setting could be CPAP pressure, CPAP-Check pressure, Auto min pressure, EPAP pressure, or EPAP min pressure. Note: If the Ramp time is set to 0, Ramp start will not display.
Icon - 5 Ramp Start This displays the Ramp starting pressure. You can increase or decrease the Ramp starting pressure in 0.5 cm H2O increments.  This is only available if Ramp time has been set to >0 and therapy pressure >4 cm H2O. Note: Depending on the therapy mode, the therapy pressure setting could be CPAP pressure, CPAP-Check pressure, Auto min pressure, EPAP pressure, or EPAP min pressure.
FLEX Flex This screen displays the comfort mode setting. You can select OFF, C-Flex, or C-Flex+ (if in CPAP or CPAP-Check mode). You can select  OFF, C-Flex, or A-Flex (if in Auto-CPAP or Auto-Trial mode).
FLEX Flex Setting You can modify the Flex setting (1, 2, or 3) on this screen if you enabled Flex. The setting of “1” provides a small amount of pressure relief, with higher numbers providing additional relief.
Icon - 6 Rise Time Rise time is the time it takes for the device to change from EPAP to IPAP. This screen allows you to adjust the rise time so you can find the desired setting. This is only available if Flex has been disabled and the device is in Bi-level or Auto Bi-level mode.
• 0 (off) reduces the Rise Time feature to the lowest setting (off = 150 msec).

To exit Demonstration mode, press the therapy button. Then, you will be returned to the full Provider menu.

Event Definitions

The DreamStation monitors breathing and detects apneas and hypopneas.

Event

Definition

Obstructed Airway Apnea / Clear Airway Apnea Detection An apnea is detected when there is an 80% reduction in airflow from baseline for at least 10 seconds or if there is no airflow detected for 10 seconds.
During the apnea, one or more pressure test pulses are delivered by the device.The device evaluates the response of the patient to the test pulse(s) and assesses whether the apnea has occurred while the patient has a clear airway or an obstructed airway. The airway is determined to be clear if the pressure test pulse generates a significant amount of flow; otherwise the airway is determined to be obstructed.
RERA Detection RERA (Respiratory effort-related arousal) is defined as an arousal from sleep that follows a 10 second or longer sequence of breaths that are characterized by increasing respiratory effort, but which does not meet criteria for an apnea or hypopnea. Snoring, though usually associated with this condition need not be present.The RERA algorithm monitors for a sequence of breaths that exhibit both a subtle reduction in airflow and progressive flow limitation. If this breath sequence is terminated by a sudden increase in airflow along with the absence of flow limitation, and the event does not meet the conditions for an apnea or hypopnea, a RERA is indicated.
Periodic Breathing A persistent waning and waxing breathing pattern which repeats itself between 30 and 100 seconds.The nadir of the breathing pattern is characterized by at least a 40% reduction in airflow from an established baseline flow.The pattern must be present for several minutes before it can be identified as periodic breathing.
No therapy adjustments are made in response to periodic breathing.
Flow Limitation Detection The device looks for relative changes in the peak, flatness, roundness, or shape (skewness) of the inspiratory portion of the airflow waveform.These changes are observed both over a short period of time (groups of 4 breaths) and over a long period of time (several minutes). Statistical measures are used to help minimize false event detection while allowing the device to be sensitive to even small changes.
Hypopnea Detection A hypopnea is detected when there is an approximately 40% reduction in airflow from baseline for at least 10 seconds.
Snore Detection Vibratory snore is detected when a specific frequency is detected during the inspiratory portion of the patient’s breath.Vibratory snore is disabled at pressures greater than 16 cm H20.

Cleaning for Multiple Users

Warning: If you are using the device on multiple users, discard and replace the bacteria filter each time the device is used on a different person.
Warning: Nebulization or humidification can increase the resistance of breathing system filters and the operator must monitor the breathing system filter frequently for increased resistance and blockage to ensure the delivery of the therapeutic pressure.
Note: When using the device on multiple users, it is recommended to use the “Reset Data” option before each new user. Refer to Reset Data under Device Settings of this guide for additional information.

If you are using the device on multiple users, complete the following steps to clean the device before each new user.

  1. Hello
    I have downloaded dream Mapper but, accidentally neglected the Manual for Bluetoth use. The two hospitals involved in my treatment do not want to help me.
    The hope now stands for you.
    Sincerely
