ResMed S8 Elite™ CPAP Machine

See Details
If you are purchasing a new CPAP, Auto CPAP or BiLevel (BiPAP) machine, humidifier or an oxygen concentrator, then federal law requires that we receive a copy of a prescription written by your doctor. A sleep study report does not qualify as a prescription.  Also, the purchase of complete CPAP masks does require a prescription.  (*** Note that the component parts that make up the mask DO NOT require a prescription! ***)
The prescription must state that it is for CPAP therapy and at what pressure your machine should be set. If you are purchasing a standard CPAP machine (one that operates at a constant pressure), then the prescription must show one pressure setting, which is generally a number between 4 and 20 and measured in cm of H2O. If you are purchasing an Auto CPAP machine, then your prescription must state two different pressures: A low (minimum) pressure setting and a high (maximum) pressure setting. If you are purchasing a BiLevel machine, then your prescription must state two pressure settings: An inspiratory (IPAP) setting and an expiratory (EPAP) setting.  If you are purchasing an Oxygen Concentrator, the prescription should have the flow rate stated in Liters per minute. 
Prescriptions can be faxed to us at 888-469-2555, or we can accept a scanned copy of your prescription by emailing it to us at sales@bestcpapprice.com.

Please note that orders for machines, concentrators, or complete masks will NOT be shipped until we receive a copy of your prescription!

Compact without compromise


The S8 EliteTM is the premium continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) model in ResMed™s S8TM series. Featuring optional fully integrated humidification and remote data downloading capabilities, the Elite is a compact, all-in-one system, ideal for travel or the home.


Features & Benefits

  • Includes new EPR (expiratory pressure relief) mode which drops pressure on exhalation so breathing feels more ™natural™
  • Choice of fixed CPAP or EPR mode for maximum comfort with control
  • Superior features and modular design for streamlined inventory and easy setup
  • Customizable patient reminders for accessory replacements and provider callbacks
  • Comprehensive efficacy and usage data helps you monitor critical trends
  • Remote downloading capabilities with ResScan Data Card simplifies follow-up
  • Compact, robust design is portable and user-friendly for patients
  • Inbuilt power supply and auto mains switching or DC input is ideal for patient travel
  • Ramp and settling options enhance comfort and help improve compliance

EPR (expiratory pressure relief)


EPRTM (expiratory pressure relief) is the most advanced compliance booster available for continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. EPR provides you with a way to improve patient comfort and compliance without compromising therapy effectiveness.


What is EPR™


EPR is an effective alternative to CPAP therapy. However, unlike other leading CPAP alternatives, EPR features several options that enable you to reliably and predictably control patient therapy while delivering a higher level of patient comfort. EPR is only available on the new S8TM flow generators, for a complete and versatile therapy solution.


How does EPR work™


When the patient exhales, the S8 flow generator detects the beginning of exhalation and reduces motor speed to drop pressure. The patient or clinician chooses one of three comfort levels to determine the degree by which pressure will drop.


Setting 1 = mild comfort (1 cm H20)
Setting 2 = medium comfort (2 cm H20)
Setting 3 = maximum comfort (3 cm H20)

Comfort with Control


EPR offers built-in controls so you can reliably and predictably manage patient therapy while delivering a higher level of patient comfort.


EPR Ramp or full-time


EPR ramp enables clinicians to control a patient™s access to EPR, restricting its use during the ramp period only. Patients experience the comfort of EPR during the early stages of sleep when they are alert and breathing against CPAP pressure is most difficult. When the Ramp period expires, pressure reverts to set CPAP. Likewise, EPR can also be set to run full-time, providing more comfort throughout the night.


Event Detection Circuit


The Event Detection Circuit is a backup feature of the EPR algorithm. Changes in a patient's sleeping position or sleep stage (ie, REM sleep) may cause sudden, unpredictable events to occur without the typical preceding flow limitation or snoring. When such an event is detected, EPR immediately suspends, and the treatment pressure reverts to set CPAP. EPR remains suspended until the event concludes and normal breathing resumes.


EPR Timeout


If a patient's exhalation period exceeds 15 seconds, EPR immediately suspends. The treatment pressure reverts to set CPAP and remains suspended until the next inhalation phase is detected. EPR helps patients experience the highest level of comfort and benefit from their therapy. EPR is available on ResMed S8 EliteTM and the S8 AutoSet VantageTM flow generators.
