Philips Respironics System One BiPAP BiLevel VPAP ST - Auto BiPAP Machine Package - 60 Series
The ST is the most powerful BiPAP machine that exists because it has a set backup breathing rate set at 8 - 14 breaths per minute. If you stop breathing, the backup rate will kick in and force a breath into you. That's why it's perfect for people with central sleep apnea because their brain has stopped initiating breaths for them. All of the other machines require you to initiate the breath before they will blow air into you - but not the ST. The ST will blow air into you whether you initiate the breath or not.
Condition: Used, In excellent condition. These machines can last up to 15 years. All items have been sanitized in accordance with the clinical guidelines.
note: machine will come with our recommended programming.

This machine has a special feature that allows the machine to calculate your baseline breath rate. If you drop below your baseline breath rate, then the machine will increase it's breath rate - even if you do not breath!
This machine is used for both obstructive and central sleep apnea.
Settings/Programming: This machine will come pre-programmed with our recommended settings.
The System One ST is a BiLevel device offering perfect patient ventilator synchrony with its incorporated backup rate. The System One ST offers the best solution for patients who need extremely reliable, non-invasive type of ventilation either at home or in hospital care, and is equipped with all the latest innovative technology features.
TiControl is a special feature which allows the healthcare expert to set minimum & maximum time limits for the inspiration phase. In the case of patients with more complex respiratory disorders, early or late cycling can easily occur during the pressure support ventilation treatment. Ti Control works by preventing early and or late cycling so that patients can enjoy maximum breathing comfort throughout required therapy.
- Climate Control Technology
Throughout therapy, the device will deliver comfortable humidity & temperature levels right at the mask. Climate Control is the inbuilt HumidAir humidifier system and the ClimateLineAir heated tube system. Climate Control is an intelligent feature that is capable of adapting to the temperature and humidity conditions available in the environment where the device is used. Thus, the system will deliver optimal temperature and humidity for the best breathing comfort all throughout the treatment.
- HumidAir Humidifier
The new HumidAir heated humidifier is a part of every AirCurve VPAP and the design is smaller than the humidifiers in previous ResMed models. This makes your entire machine smaller and more portable. For patients who don’t normally use heated humidification, you still have the option of removing the humidifier from the device entirely, or not filling the water chamber.
- VPAP ST
VPAP ST features the latest and most sophisticated respiratory algorithms in any spontaneous timed machine. The device provides inspiratory positive airway pressure and also has a backup rate to make sure that you get enough breaths per minute, even when you do not breathe spontaneously.
- Pressure Range
Has a pressure range of 3-25 cm H20, which is a wider pressure range than in a standard CPAP device. The VPAP ST is intended for patients with central sleep apnea, who generally need more air pressure than patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
- SD Card Ready (not included - if you need an SD card - let us know)
This VPAP machine includes a data card and has an integrated wireless module; the wireless module enables patients to transfer their therapy information via the internet directly to their physician or healthcare provider. This VPAP device has the capacity to store up to 365 days of summary and compliance data, 30 sessions of detailed data and 7 sessions of high resolution flow data.
