How to tell DreamStation models apart
Warning, take the water tank out before messing with your machine, especially turning it over.

What, if anything on DreamStation machines tells you what model machine you have?

All the pictures I see don't have anything showing you whether you have the DreamStation Plus, Auto, Pro, etc.

Can someone with a DreamStation Auto, Pro, BiPAP, etc. look at their machine and see if the model name is on there somewhere?

Pictures would be nice.

Presumably there's a model or "REF" number on the label somewhere. Pictures of the label would be appreciated.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

RE: How to tell DreamStation models apart
Looks like it very briefly gives you the model name on the screen when you power it on. Would appreciate verification from an owner.

Still no indication in my Googling that it's labeled with the model name anywhere.

RE: How to tell DreamStation models apart
I'm not in a position to inspect mine right now but if it's powered up you can go into the "My Provider" menu (in regular patient mode). The first screen in there is device info with model, firmware etc. My dreamstation apap lists the model as "Auto CPAP"

Edit: checked the bottom and where the barcode and serial number is it says DreamStation AutoCPAPHumHT

Mine was the apap packaged with humidifier and heated hose so that makes sense

That was the first thing I did with my machine after filling the tank. Made a fine mess of the bedroom floor and my wife closely oversaw the cleaning of the same. Big Grin
