How to tell which Resmed S9 you have
#1
Look at the white tag on the back of the unit (see attached picture), and then the number by the REF. This will correspond to the model number.

36005 is the S9 Autoset, with full data recording, and is the APAP you typically want. The 36065 (360x5, where x is a number) is the same Autoset, except with pink covers.

There are ordering variants of the unit, like 36015, but this just means the 36005 with a H5i humidifier. 36025 is just a 36005 with the H5i and the Climateline hose. I do not believe you will actually see a 36015 on the unit, as this is just a way to order additional features at one time.

Here is the current CPAP, APAP and VPAP that I am aware of:
36001 S9 CPAP Escape (CPAP Only)
36002 S9 APAP/CPAP Escape Auto (No data)
36003 S9 CPAP Elite
36004 S9 VPAP S
36005 S9 APAP/CPAP AutoSet
36006 S9 VPAP Auto
36009 S9 VPAP ST-A
36037 S9 VPAP Adapt
36038 S9 VPAP ST
36039 S9 VPAP ST-A
36065 S9 APAP/CPAP AutoSet, Pink

The serial number tells place and year of manufacture:

i.e. 2211xxxxxxx

22 = Australia
23 = Singapore
11 = 2011
xxxxxxx = Serial number

Easier way is to look at the top of the machine where the power button is.

This is not always accurate.

I was just looking to purchase another S9 Autoset on-line, and not everyone understands the difference. Sellers post pictures of an S9 Autoset, but the unit may be something else as the pictures are so similar.

Requesting the REF number from the seller told me exactly what model it was.

You forgot the S9 AutoSet CS
36150 in UK, 36160 in France, 36170 in Germany
(I wish it were available here in North America)

and the S9 AutoSet CS-A (same but with an alarm)
36251 (Switzerland)
36211 (Europe "group 1")
36231 (Europe "group 2")
36271 (Europe "group 3")

CS apparently refers to Cheyne Stokes
I made it a mission to acquire every S9 "fact sheet" available.

Hi kbeckman, welcome to the forum!

You are so right!

Another example: the older version of S9 VPAP Adapt (made before Nov 2012) has the same product NAME and identical appearance but not the same product NUMBER as the newer version of S9 VPAP Adapt. The newer version is much better because it has an ASV-Auto mode which the earlier version does not.

Unfortuneately, the ResMed web site totally neglects to point this out. Someone buying a brand new "S9 VPAP Adapt" from his or her local DME or on-line DME might not get the "S9 VPAP Adapt" which has been described on the ResMed web site since November 2012.

The new model 36037 (or 36047 if humidifier included) has 3 operating modes: the standard CPAP mode, the old ASV mode (in which exhale pressure is manually adjustable and inhale pressure automatically adjusts to keep you breathing during what would otherwise have become a Clear Airway event), plus the new ASV-Auto mode in which the exhale pressure also automatically adjusts to better treat obstructive apneas, as well.

Unless, before you buy, you ASK for the actual ResMed PRODUCT NUMBER and compare it to the product number given on the ResMed web site, you cannot know for sure which version of the machine you would be buying.

Thanks for raising awareness on this issue.

Take care,

We're doing a bit of work on identifying the various machines on the market - so far we've come up with 55 model numbers of Resmed S9 sleep apnea machines (plus and unknown number of ventilators). The 55 numbers seem to relate to 19 actual different machines - the differences relate to the sales territory (ie Australia, USA, Europe (4 territories)) and whether or not the machine is bundled with the humidifier and heated hose.

Hi again,

Thanks for the replies.

Just another Question about the ResMed S9 AutoSet.
What happens if the mains power goes OFF (a Black Out) when you are asleep at night using it ?

Thanks John

Thanks John
Full face mask have asphyxia valve, built-in vents holes so you can breathe fresh air if power goes off
Nasal pillows and nasal mask cover only the nose, you can breathe through your mouth if power goes off
In both scenarios, power going off would wake you up
