The SleepStyle 242 & 244 bring SmartStick Technology, with a compliance and efficacy reporting, into Fisher & Paykel's line of easy to use, humidified CPAP systems. Each 242 & 244 has a USB stick which fits in the back of the CPAP and records data on treatment, such as usage hours, and how well the current therapy settings are working for you. When you visit your healthcare provider for a follow up visit you only need to bring in the SmartStick from the CPAP instead of carrying the whole unit in for downloading. In addition these systems offer a greater pressure range, one-button ramp, enhanced user ergonomics, and altitude adjustments than previous systems... They're lighter, quieter and smaller too!
True Integration - The SleepStyle 242 & 244 are truly integrated CPAP systems that include internal heated humidifiers that are proven to improve acceptance and compliance. Both disposable and long life humidifier chambers are available.
Quiet Operation - Two kinds of noise can annoy you and your sleeping partner during sleep therapy. There is the noise of the CPAP system and the gurgling noise (rainout) that results from condensation forming in the air tube. The SleepStyle 242 & 244 CPAPs address both issues. They operate very quietly and, with Ambient Tracking PLUS, they automatically adjust the level of humidification to minimize rainout noise from condensation in the system while maximizing overall comfort levels.
USB SmartStick Technology - Both the SleepStyle 242 & 244 utilize SmartStick Technology to store sleep therapy data for use by technicians and doctors. The SleepStyle 242 stores compliance data while the SleepStyle 244 stores compliance data as well as full efficacy data (AHI, Leak, Pressure). With the SmartStick and Performance Maximizer software your doctor can make remote adjustments to settings as well as review perforamance. And since SmartStick is a USB technology is is common to most modern computer systems.
