You read it wrong.
Both PRS1 Auto machines collect and display the same data. The main difference is the 60 series has the option of using a heated hose.
Paul, your choices are this:
Philips Respironics System One REMstar Auto CPAP with A-Flex
The current model is the "60 Series", but they're not labeled as such. The main difference vs. 50 series (previous model) is the heated hose option.
The older model "50 Series" Auto machines are still fine machines and you may find one still available, but demand a discount because it's older and you won't have the heated hose option.
60 series Auto machines will say 560 or 561 somewhere on the bottom label.
50 series Auto machines will say 550 or 551.
In order to get a heated hose, you must have
A 60 series CPAP.
The optional high power power supply.
The optional heated hose heated humidifier. There is also a heated humidifier that WON'T power the heated hose.
The optional heated hose.
As usual, there is a confusing combination of bundling options to assist the dealer in screwing the customer.
There is also a PRS1 "Pro" machine that may or may not say "AutoIQ" on near the display after the "REMstar PRO" designation. This is the one that's not a "real" auto machine.
There is also a REMstar BiPAP Auto and a REMstar BiPAP Auto SV Advanced that are "bilevel" machines. Bilevel is usually for more complicated cases of apnea. Much more expensive, not necessarily better.
on the Supplier List.
has pretty good info on their web site, although a few of their pictures don't actually match the exact model the web page is for.
