The F&P ICON™ Auto is the fully featured Auto CPAP that combines all of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare’s leading clinical technologies including our advanced Auto-adjusting algorithm and SensAwake™ Technology.
The flow-based auto-adjusting algorithm provides pressure when it is needed to meet the changing demands of the upper airway during sleep, while SensAwake™ provides a sophisticated form of pressure relief when the patient experiences awake states. A prompt reduction in pressure upon wakefulness aims to improve comfort and facilitate the return to sleep.
SensAwake: Patients commonly arouse from sleep which can sometimes
lead to a full awakening. It is therefore important to provide as much comfort as possible during these awake states to help facilitate the return to sleep. SensAwake does this by searching for a pattern of irregular breathing that occurs at the transition from sleep to awake. SensAwake™ senses this irregularity inflow and promptly reduces the pressure to aid the transition back to sleep.
ThermoSmart: ThermoSmart™ Technology includes an advanced humidification
algorithm and a heated breathing tube, which both work to provide optimal humidity and reduce condensation. Patients will benefit from higher levels of humidity for improved comfort and a clinically proven better night’s sleep.
