GoodKnight 420E APAP
This advanced auto-CPAP model automatically adapts to airway pressure needs.
Unlike fixed pressure CPAPs, the Goodknight 420E Auto CPAP will adjust the pressure for you all through the night, and will adapt with night to night variability to your needs.
- It senses snoring sounds and increases the pressure to counteract them
- It senses hypopneas - decreases in air flow, and increases the pressure to counteract them
- It senses apnoeas - cessations of breathing, and increases the pressure to counteract them
When the ideal pressure has been reached it will be maintained for a while. Then the pressure will slowly reduce until the unit senses an event that will require an increase in pressure again. This way, the unit delivers just the right amount of pressure required all the time.
Data is stored in the 420E which may be downloaded by your sleep centre or ourselves and reports produced, that will indicate the amount of time that the equipment is used and the number and type of events to which it has responded.

I love the way this machine modifies its presented pressure dependent on requirements (set-up) and then in its practical use, with the ramp-ups to overcome the apnoeas, as they occur and then drop-back to a normal rhythm. Its the only machine I can use to get a good sleep for my mild apnoea condition. My wife loves it as it stops my snoring.It is very quiet and simple to use. I am not sure how to get the sleep rhythm data out for further diagnostics of my condition though.It can dry your nose out so consider the use of a humidifier if this becomes intolerable. Its expensive but worth it as the machine supplied by the NHS (once my diagnostic data gathering ended) was a CPAP with a constant high pressure which I could not sleep with.
