RESlex Pressure Relief
Auto-Adjusting Technology & Sensitivity Setting

Therapy Comfort: Auto-Adjusting and Pressure Relief

The RESmart Auto CPAP uses auto-adjusting technology to provide the best level of pressure for effective therapy. The machine adjusts the delivered air flow based on information gathered on a breath by breath basis. The pressure range is set in the Clinical Menu with MaxAPAP being the highest pressure and Treatment Pressure being the lowest pressure.

Sensitivity Setting, a feature unique to the RESmart Auto CPAP, allows the user to set the responsiveness level of the auto-adjusting algorithm. It offers settings 1 through 5 with 1 being a "soft" adjustment and 5 being a "hard" adjustment. "Soft" means that the adjustment will be applied over a longer period of time and "hard" means it will be applied more quickly. The machine is set to a default setting of 3 or mid-range Sensitivity Setting.

RESlex is a therapy comfort feature that reduces the air stream pressure during exhalation making it easier to breathe out against the flow. RESlex can be set to a level of 0, 1, 2, or 3 with 3 being the largest drop in pressure at exhalation. The default setting for RESlex is 0, or 'off. See the Important Tips tab for information on accessing the Patient Menu to set RESlex setting.

Therapy Data and iCode

iCode information maybe entered here: iCode Report Site. https://www.bmc-icode.com/

View the RESmart iCode Quick Reference Sheet for more information on iCode functions. http://f409096db18d4d4c5ac8-7518c0400f86...erence.pdf

Smart Phone Apps - iPhone & Android

Available for both iPhone and Android devices, the manufacturer of the RESmart Auto offers the free 3B/BMC iCode App. Search iTunes or GooglePlay to locate and download the application.

Available Alert and Auto Functions

In addition to auto-adjusting technology and Sensitivity Setting, RESmart offers a number of automatic features making it comfortable, reliable and easy to use. Auto Alert functions can be changed in the set up menu.

Auto On-Off starts the therapy session with breathing into the mask and turns off when breathing into the mask stops.
Auto Altitude Compensation adjusts between sea level and 8202 feet. If desired, the altitude can be manually set to 3 levels - see the Specs tab for details. Manually setting the altitude compensation may be helpful for users living at very high altitudes.
Power Off Alert sounds if the power to the device is interrupted during use.
Auto Leak Alert notifies the user of an open air circuit with an audible tone.

Heated Humidifier

The RESmart heated humidifier snaps onto the front of the device using the same power supply as the machine. Set the humidifier between 1 and 5 based on desired therapy humidification level. The RESmart chamber is designed to avoid flow of water back into the machine from the humidifier reducing the chance of water damage to the machine.

Important Tips

Review the Quick Reference Sheet RESmart Auto & CPAP for help with settings. http://f409096db18d4d4c5ac8-7518c0400f86...ESmart.pdf

The RESmart iCode Quick Reference Sheet offers information on iCode functions and reports. http://f409096db18d4d4c5ac8-7518c0400f86...erence.pdf

RESmart machines use a standard, 22mm hose and are not compatible with 15mm hoses.

RESlex Setting: The default setting for RESlex is turned off with a setting zero. RESlex is set in the Patient Menu. To access the Patient Menu:

With the machine turned off, press and hold the Ramp button.
The "Heater" setting will appear in the window.
Step through the settings by pushing the "+" button. RESlex is the seventh setting.
To change the RESlex setting, press the Ramp button one time, on the display screen a square next to the setting number will flash indicating it is active.
Pressing the "+" and "-" buttons select the desired level of RESlex. 0=Off; 1= the least drop in pressure at the time of exhalation; 3= the most drop in pressure at the time of exhalation.
Press the Ramp button once to set the RESlex setting.
Step through the remaining 6 menu items by pressing the "+" button until reaching the word "SAVE"
Press the Ramp button to LOCK IN any changes made. The screen will display will return to the ready mode.
NOTE - If the settings are not locked in with SAVE the changes will not be in place when using the machine.

DelayOff with Humidifier Usage: If a humidifier was used during the therapy session, the machine will continue blowing in a 'DelayOff' mode at a very low pressure to cool off the heating elements. This is normal operation for the RESmart line of machines. This feature can be changed in the Patient Menu as detailed above for RESlex. Look for the feature "DelayOff."

When "Enable" is selected, a machine with humidifier will run at a low pressure to cool and dry the machine. When "Disable" is selected, a machine with a humidifier will turn off when the therapy session is ended.

Range for auto-adjusting: The RESmart Auto machine refers the pressure range with the terms MaxAPAP (highest pressure) and Treatment Pressure (lowest pressure). Some manufacturers call these the Max and Min pressures. The machine will adjust to the optimum pressure between the two. When in auto-mode, the pressures displayed on the screen under the word "Ramp" and the ramp time are the starting "Ramp" pressure on the left and the Treatment, or minimum, pressure on the right.

Filter Change: Remove the filter cover by depressing the tab on the bottom of the cover and pulling up on the flare at the bottom of the cover. Insert the filter with the smooth, flat side facing INTO the machine. The textured side of the filter will be showing when installed correctly. Snap the filter cover back in place. Never install a wet filter.

Humidifier Chamber: The humidifier chamber is sealed and cannot be taken apart. It is recommended to fill and empty the chamber through the top port. Alternately, the silicone plug on top of the chamber can be removed to allow emptying. To replace the silicone plug, set the chamber on a hard, even surface, line up the tabs with the holes on the chamber and press firmly downward.


CPAP Power Options

NOTE: Using the RESmart with DC power requires an Inverter such as 400 Watt DC to AC Power Inverter. When calculating the run time of a battery source consider that the inverter itself will draw power during usage. Using the heated humidifier with a battery will further reduct

Umm, isn't "breathing into the mask stops" also the definition of an apnea event? And that turns the machine off?!

Good luck to you at 8203 ft altitude!

I don't think this product description was well proof-read.

Hi Blackwid0,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
I'm sorry to hear that you are disappointed with your new machine.
You might see if you can send it back and exchange it for one that will be better for you.
Hang in there for more responses to your post and best of luck.

RE: IS Resmart CPCP machine any good?
I started my therapy with a 3B medical apap because all my prescription specified was an auto cpap. My DME must have thought that would make them the most profit. I didn't know any better until I came to this site, it did the job just didn't have the card to see the data. I did not ever see the serial port adapter mentioned anywhere. I used it for 8 months no problems. I bought a S9 autoset used for the data reporting and do like it better, humidifier easy to empty and fill and it is more quiet I think. So my 3B med unit is a good backup, don't know if I would suggest someone buying new but the price is low and if that is the only worry I guess people will.
Good luck and keep reading, this site is the best thing I've done to see the whole picture and strive for the best treatment I can get.

RE: IS Resmart CPCP machine any good?
Thanks trish6hundred and Doc J

I was not given a choice in the first place, my MD referred me to a sleep lab and they then "sorted everything out" ... they contacted the medical aid and provided quotes ect as I am on medical aid. I was only provided with a copy of the test results and that was explained.
I had NO knowledge of machines or types of machines and nothing was explained to me either (although I am learning fast).

The medical aid pays through the sleep lab (although they only pay about 50% of the cost of the machine) and I do not have any say in this. The sleep lab stone walled me for obvious reasons and is leaving me in the dark. And yes, I also HAVE to have "auto" too.

I received the "brand new" RESMart machine with scratches on the casing ... to me it says a lot about quality control.

The machine constantly sounds like a jet taking off (or fan spinning up and stop and spin up and stop) every time I breathe in ... the guy from the sleep lab now told me it is my lungs wheezing (I am convinced that I will be able to have a GOOD laugh about this in the near future).

Thank you for having a forum like this and I am sure I'll be able to find answers for my questions and learn a LOT more.

RE: IS Resmart CPCP machine any good?
Actually, the 3B/BMC unit is sold in 120 countries. While relatively new to the U.S., BMC had its start as a manufacturer of sleep lab polysomnography equipment, and then as an OEM manufacturer. The use of "RES" is just about every manufacturer's products has a very simple explanation.... "RESpiration (i.e. ResMed, Respironics, Respcare, Respicare, RESmart, RESlex, etc.).

In terms of noise level, the unit tests at 28 db which is extremely quiet.

The units report have full clinical efficacy and compliance reporting, one of the easiest menu systems, and one of the lowest warranty return rates in the industry. Anyone with questions is invited to email at info@3Bproducts.com. We'd be happy to help with any questions, comments, or compliance issues. You're also invited to PM me. 3B/Customer Service Rep
