Introduction to the SleepStyle HC254 Auto

ThisMachine has CPAP technology that is auto-adjusting. With SensAwake Technology patients can experience more comfort while waking instead of complete pressure. With the Ambient Tracking Plus feature patients can experience humidification changes so that they don?t get discomfort from the machine. In addition, this machine has great storable data that is easy to read. The display is easy to understand making this a very user friendly CPAP Machine. I also suggest that you check out my article on my favorite CPAP machines overall, the best BiPAP machines as well as the differences between the two if you do not already know.

Size and Weight

The size of this model is a little bigger than some others but that allows the keypad to be easy to understand. The size of this CPAP Machine is 10.8″ x 6.7″ x 5.5″. The weight of this machine is decent at a weight of 4.2 pounds. Although it may not be as lightweight as some other CPAP Machines it is still portable.

Ease of Use

This model is very easy to use. The pressure technology allows the patient to not have to adjust the pressure themselves. There is a data card that can be used to view the recorded data quite easily. A patient friendly design is created so that the menu on the CPAP Machine can be easily read and understood easily as well. In addition, based on the altitude of where you are at, the machine adjusts as needed. This is one of the easiest CPAP Machines to see and use.

SleepStyle HC254 Auto Summary

The SleepStyle HC254 Auto CPAP Machine is very comfortable for the patients. It also provides many great features including the SensAwake Technology, Ambient Tracking Plus and Auto Adjusting CPAP Technology. These features are designed to provide the patients with a great experience while on CPAP Machine treatments which in return offer very effective therapy options for sleep apnea, other obstructive sleep disorders and respiratory illnesses. Overall I think this is a very decent machine. It is not my favorite CPAP machine that is on the market right now though. No matter which machine you decide to go with, I recommend getting a quality machine cleaner such as the SoClean 2. It will?save you countless headaches by not having to clean it manually.
