The PR System One REMStar 60 Series Auto CPAP Machine has all the best features of the original PR System One REMstar Auto CPAP Machine with A-Flex. Select the OPTIONAL cutting edge and responsive heated tube and humidifier system for increased therapy comfort. Philips Respironics builds on their ground breaking System One Humidity Control, the first technology to consider the ambient humidity in the room, by adding a Heated Tube. Set the humidification to the desired level and it will be maintained all the way from the machine to the mask reducing rainout.
The PR System One REMStar 60 Series Auto CPAP Machine is an auto-adjusting CPAP machine that covers all the bases using Flex Technology to deliver the minimal pressure needed to maintain effective therapy with exhalation relief. Add the Optional System One Humidity Control and Heated Tube to extend maximum therapy comfort and relieve many therapy side effects.

Optional System One Humidity Control and Integrated Heated Tube
Philips Respironics 60 Series machines can be used with the optional Heated Tube and System One Humidity System. Together they maximize comfort while managing rainout and potential water damage. The level of relative humidity delivered to the mask is adjusted by analyzing the ambient room temperature and machine airflow. The optional slim 15mm Heated Tube maintains the desired temperature evenly from the machine to the mask.
When the optional 60 Series Heated Humidifier and Heated Tube are added to the 60 Series Auto CPAP machine use the on-screen menu to select one of three available levels of relative humidity (70, 80 or 90 percent). Next, adjust the control dial to choose from 5 levels of heated tube temperature, ranging from 4 to 16 degrees above room temperature. The optimum humidification level at the mask is easy to maintain when using the PR System One REMStar 60 Series Auto CPAP with humidification assembly.
The System One 60 Series Humidifier has a redesigned chamber resulting in an increase in surface area and greater humidification output. It has been reformatted to work with the Heated Tube which easily snaps on and off the humidifier port.
The System One Dry Box technology stands alone in reducing the chance of water damage to the CPAP. Unique design features prevent water from exiting the chamber and entering the machine. The center air outlet port uses a one way valve. This location on the chamber helps to minimize total water displacement. If water were to escape the chamber it is trapped within the reservoir of the Dry Box.
The PR System One REMStar 60 Series Auto CPAP Machine sports an updated look with a rich charcoal color and metallic silver as accents on the control and side panels. The control dial has been redesigned to make it easier to grasp.
Flex Family Technology
Traditional CPAP therapy is enhanced with easy breathing Flex Technology. People new to CPAP therapy find adapting to treatment easier when the airflow pressure is slightly reduced upon exhalation. The 60 Series Auto CPAP offers C-Flex, C-Flex Plus and A-Flex modes.
C-Flex delivers comfortable sleep therapy through pressure relief at exhalation. Pressure is lowered based on a breath-per-breath analysis and provides up to 3 levels of relief based on the user’s expiratory flow.
C-Flex Plus softens the breathing cycle between inhalation and exhalation based on expiratory flow. It minimizes the transition between pressures and provides greater comfort when in the fixed-pressure CPAP mode.
The A-Flex comfort feature is built on top of the REMstar Auto algorithm which provides the lowest pressure needed to keep the airway open during sleep. A-Flex adjusts to deliver pressure as needed to eliminate breathing events without raising it too high.
System One Resistance Control
In order to deliver optimal pressure Respironics developed a numbering system to note the resistance characteristics of each mask. Using the Resistance Control number, the machine compensates for the mask being used to provide a consistent and reliable pressure.
Sleep data is available on the display screen of the System One 60 Series Auto CPAP machine. See the Apnea/Hypopnea Index, leak rate as well as the 7 and 30 day average pressure readings. Data is stored in both an on-board memory and a generic SD memory card.
Philips Respironics offers the updated version of their popular OPTIONAL software: EncoreViewer 2.1 Software for Respironics Machines. It is compatible with 64 bit systems and offers both viewing and printing of sleep therapy data.
Opti-Start Comfort Technology
Opti-Start technology is designed to provide the optimum therapy starting pressure. When Opti-Start is set to “on”, after 30 hours, the machine begins therapy at the average pressure used. As therapy continues, the machine automatically adjusts the delivered pressure on a breath by breath basis as usual. If Opti-Start is turned on, the ramp feature will NOT function.
Important Compatibility Note
The PR System One REMStar 60 Series Auto CPAP can only be used with the optional 60 Series Heated Humidifier. The optional Heated Tube CANNOT BE used with any other PR System One machines and humidifiers. The external power supply used by this system IS NOT compatible with other units in the Philips Respironics line of products.
The REMStar 60 Series Auto CPAP is not compatible with earlier versions of the PR System One Heated Humidifier.
Further the Heated Humidifier and Heated Tube that interface with the PR System One REMStar 60 Series Auto CPAP with Heated Humidifier and Heated Tube is not compatible with the PR System One REMstar Auto CPAP Machine with A-Flex or any other machines in the PR System One product line.
The 60 Series machines and humidifiers cannot physically be attached to earlier versions in the Philips Respironics line of products.
