Royal Philips today announced the launch of DreamStation Go, its newest and smallest positive airway pressure (PAP) device designed to simplify travel for patients living with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). At half the size of Philips’ previous generation devices, DreamStation Go delivers the same clinically-proven performance and comfort, for reliable, convenient therapy on-the-go.
Designed with traveling patient needs in mind, DreamStation Go is the product of over 30 years of sleep therapy innovation. The discreet, slim-profile device weighs less than 2 pounds and features a built-in power supply that helps to limit the number of components to pack. Philips’ new 12 mm micro-flexible tubing continues the compact trend across the holistic system, minimizing bulk while improving mobility and comfort. DreamStation Go meets FAA standards for in-flight use, so users can keep up with therapy even when taking an extended or red-eye flight.
“Traveling with a sleep therapy device can be a cumbersome experience for patients with obstructive sleep apnea,” says Mark D’Angelo, OSA patient and sleep therapy business leader at Philips, in a release. “While we have made strides to reduce the size and weight of our machines in recent years, most are still carried as a separate piece of luggage—a fact that has led many users to resent and even forego therapy during travel. We designed the DreamStation Go as a holistic system with compact features and proven performance to help eliminate the need to sacrifice reliable therapy for convenience when traveling and vice versa— allowing for the best possible night’s sleep no matter where it happens.”
DreamStation Go is available in either a fixed-pressure continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or auto-titrated APAP model. Both options are Bluetooth-enabled for seamless data transmission to Philips’ EncoreAnywhere and Care Orchestrator cloud-based patient management systems for clinicians. Integration with Philip’s DreamMapper application enables users to easily monitor therapy adherence across multiple devices from one consolidated dashboard.
DreamStation Go is now available for direct purchase in the United States through select online retailers found at SleepApnea.com/DreamStationGo. It will expand to additional global markets in summer 2017.
All good. Many folks need humidity. How about an HME (Humidity Moisture Exchange) that’s approved by Philips.
Also need humidity, and perhaps a version of HME that would work with the DreamWear Nasal mask. If that combination was available, I’d buy immediately! The universal version of HME is not powerful enough to channel exhaled moisture through the increased distance between the nostrils and the entry point of the air which is on the top of the head.
How does this compare to the AirMini?
Is this machine sufficient for ongoing home use also>
