I can sleep better now knowing that this machine will adjust to my needs through the night. Gives me peace of mind. I really feel more rested since using this auto machine. I needed an upgrade for a long time and so glad I chose this one. Works great and user friendly.
Love my DreamStation Auto

I have heard so many good things about the DreamStation machines so I finally bought the Auto version. I'm amazed at all this machine can do and how much better I'm sleeping. Also helps me to be more compliant cause I can monitor everything that is going on with me during sleep. I first used it without the humidifier, and after a while decided to purchase the humidifier and heated tube. Best decision ever, the heated tube really does help with rainout. I highly recommend this machine, it does everything.
