REMstar Auto with C-Flex


Respironics Inc, Murrysville, Pa, has combined auto-titration with C-Flex to introduce the REMstar Auto with C-Flex. By measuring instances of flow limitation, the REMstar Auto utilizes systematic, subtle changes in pressure and assesses the impact of these changes on the patient’s breathing patterns. Additional analysis determines how much of a response is necessary to eliminate events and provide a more appropriate pressure. The C-Flex offers pressure relief during exhalation for more comfortable therapy, and the flow-based Auto-CPAP algorithm provides optimal pressure support for patients. Additionally, the proactive algorithm can seek out instances of flow limitation by cycling through Pcrit, Popt, and Ptherapy modes and act accordingly. (800) 345-6443;
