Hi Lee

I'm just trying to understand.....do you mean you're using the Resmed S9 machine now and asking whether the Philips DreamStation is less noisy?  Neither of the machines should be noisy though.

Hi Kath yes that’s it, my Resmed S9+humidifier machine is very noisy in I can hear my breathing in/out at the machine very noisy. Had my annual check at Papworth and she said the Dreamstation is noisy to, she has had lots of phone calls from people saying so 

Well I sleep next to my husband who uses the DreamStation and there's no noise at all unless he gets a mask leak.  We also don't hear of people complaining about the Resmed S9, although people who have been moved to the Airsense 10 do say the noise is less.  Could it be mask leaks you're having?  Are you on high pressures?

Hi no it’s not the mask leaking, the very nice lady said she would order me a Dreamstation if I wanted but said about it also being noisy so I thought I’d ask people that have this machine also is the Dreamstation a better machine ?, can you see how your doing on an app ? Many thanks 


The DreamStation should definitely not be noisy and they've particularly done some tests on this aspect and state it's quieter than Resmed.  You can see how your doing, re AHI, leaks etc on the CPAP Pro and Auto versions, but not on the basic CPAP.  You can see the CPAP Pro and Auto DreamStations on our website for further info https://www.hope2sleep.co.uk/philips-respironics-dreamstation-pro-c...

Hi thanks for your help, just my luck that I’d get the basic machine lol. I’ll phone them and ask. many thanks  

Also I have moved my Resmed so hopefully it will be quiet now  

Sorry Lee as missed your replies, but hope things are going better for you now.
