[Product Review] The Phillips Respironics DreamStation Go -- One Person's Choice
#11
RE: The Phillips Respironics DreamStation Go -- One Person's Choice
With respect to noise, you have to look at three dimensions. What does a partner hear? What do you hear. What hoses and masks do you plan to wear? First, my wife finds the Go to be extremely quiet. Second, I also find it as quiet if not more quiet than my ResMed S9 or 10. Third, your mask may be the most important variable. As you probably know, different hoses masks have very different noise profiles. The Go has the flexibility to be used with either a 12mm proprietary hose or any 15mm hose. With the 12mm hose and a ResMed Airfit P10 (pillow) mask, the Go is very quiet. How your body is positioned and the hose arranged will impact the noise level. I find it now soothing not bothersome at 4-10 pressures. 

I use the Go for not only traveling but also home use. I really like its software, its filter system, and its small footprint, and its not having an external electrical brick.

You can use the humidifier, but recommend you use passive (unheated) humidification.  Having the air flow across the humidifier water is fine and will provide comfort without increasing power drain. If you want heated water, just add warm water instead of cold to the humidifier.  It is the heating elements in the humidifier and tube that drain power; the humidifier itself is fine, and if you have a large enough battery and recharging is available daily, go ahead and use the heat.

The Go is louder than the full size Dreamstation, but this depends on how forcefully you are inhaling. While I am settling in, breathing can sound a little like wind outside the window. I don't mind this, and actually kind of like it. It gets more quiet as you relax. However, placing the machine on the floor helps a lot if it bothers you.

Personally, I find the 12mm tubing to be like breathing through a straw. 15mm is a lot more comfortable. The outlet of the machine is actually 15mm, and it accepts standard 22mm tube ends as well as the 12mm swiveling Go tube. Per the specs, the pressure control is more accurate with 15mm too. The weight and flexibility of the 12 is nice though.

Note that if using the integrated battery pack without the AC cord connected, the machine will not operate with the humidifier attached.

I have to recant on the 12mm hose size. It works fine IF you ignore PR’s ridiculous recommendation to use mask setting X0 for non-PR masks. Any mask will be at least X1. Smaller-size pillows may need a higher setting, as will HMEs.

It is still true that the pressure control is a little more accurate with the 15mm hose per PR’s specs, but the errors stack up if the mask setting is wrong.
