    • Resmed S9 Elite

      The S9 Elite™ is a whisper quiet, elegant and comfortable therapy system for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). The S9 Elite provides Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) with Easy-Breathe™ Expiratory Pressure Relief (EPR) to prevent the collapse of your upper airway during sleep.

      The S9 Elite uses the latest, easy to use technology to enhance your breathing comfort and reduce system noise. Designed for a more natural breathing experience, the S9 Elite’s enhanced Easy-Breathe technology delivers unrivalled, whisper quiet therapy from the device and the mask. This means a more restful night for both you and your partner.

      When an intelligent, feature rich fixed CPAP is needed, the S9 Elite is ResMed’s recommendation. Like other devices in the S9 series, it includes comfort and compliance enhancing features like enhanced Easy-Breathe technology… for whisper quiet mask and device therapy plus Easy-Breathe EPR for the ultimate in natural, comfortable breathing. To ensure greater insight into therapy, the S9 Elite provides via USB, or SD card high resolution oximetry, efficacy and compliance data.

      Easy-Breathe Technology
      Easy-Breathe technology delivers superior patient–device synchrony, increased patient comfort, improved device quality and, ultimately, improved compliance. Sure, this new technology reduces radiated noise to 24dBA, which in itself sets the benchmark for device noise, but there is more to this technology…Conducted noise which passes from the device to the mask via the tubing is radically reduced. What does this mean? A significant improvement in comfort levels reported with respect to mask and tubing noise.

      Easy-Breathe EPR
      ResMed has enhanced the clinically proven Easy-Breathe EPR waveform to be even more comfortable. Throughout the night and breath by breath, the Easy-Breathe waveform reduces the work of breathing during exhalation creating a gentle pressure that adapts to the patient’s natural breathing cycle. With pressure delivery and patient breathing more closely synchronised, breathing has never felt more natural.

      H5i - Humidification and Climate Control

      Climate Control
      Explaining to a patient why humidification is important and configuring a humidifier can be challenging. These issues are resolved when providing the S9, H5i and ClimateLine tubing as a combination known as Climate Control. For the first time, air is delivered at the temperature your patients demand whilst five sensors, including one close to the mask, monitor multiple conditions to provide optimal humidification – automatically. In addition, rainout – which causes “gurgling” noises, variable pressure swings and water condensation on the face, are effectively managed with Climate Control when in Auto mode. To set up Climate Control connect the ClimateLine tubing to the H5i, set the most comfortable temperature on the S9 and Climate Control automatically does the rest.

      H5i Water Tub
      The H5i cleanable water tub offers noteable benefits for the sleep professional;
      • Multi patient multi use – (MPMU)
      • Dishwasher cleanable
      ClimateLine Tubing Rainout can occur with high performance humidifiers like the H5i if the added water vapour condenses as it cools through the tubing. Rainout has been shown to adversely affect therapy and impact compliance. (Bacon et al, Chest 2000 Nov; 118(5): 1441-1449). The Climate Control algorithms utilize the heated ClimateLine tubing and a temperature sensor near the mask to manage rainout effectively.
