Caution: U. S. federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
Intended Use
The BiPAP autoSV Advanced System One is intended to provide non-invasive ventilatory support to treat adult patients (>30 kg/66 lbs)
with Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Respiratory Insufficiency caused by central and/or mixed apneas and periodic breathing. This device
may be used in the hospital or home.
Warnings
A warning indicates the possibility of injury to the user or the operator.
• This manual serves as a reference. The instructions in this manual are not intended to supersede the health care professional’s
instructions regarding the use of the device.
• The operator should read and understand this entire manual before using the device.
• This device is not intended for life support.
• The device should be used only with masks and connectors recommended by Respironics or with those recommended by
the health care professional or respiratory therapist. A mask should not be used unless the device is turned on and operating
properly. The exhalation port(s) or entrainment valve associated with the mask should never be blocked. Explanation of the
Warning: The device is intended to be used with special masks or connectors that have exhalation ports to allow continuous
flow of air out of the mask. When the device is turned on and functioning properly, new air from the device flushes the exhaled
air out through the mask exhalation port or entrainment valve. However, when the device is not operating, enough fresh air will
not be provided through the mask, and exhaled air may be rebreathed. Rebreathing of exhaled air for longer than several minutes
can in some circumstances lead to suffocation.
• When using oxygen with this system, a Respironics Pressure Valve must be placed in-line with the patient circuit between the
device and the oxygen source. The pressure valve helps prevent the backflow of oxygen from the patient circuit into the device
when the unit is off. Failure to use the pressure valve could result in a fire hazard.
• When using oxygen with this system, turn the device on before turning on the oxygen. Turn the oxygen off before turning the
device off. This will prevent oxygen accumulation in the device. Explanation of the Warning: When the device is not in
operation and the oxygen flow is left on, oxygen delivered into the tubing may accumulate within the device’s enclosure. Oxygen
accumulated in the device enclosure will create a risk of fire.
• Oxygen supports combustion. Oxygen should not be used while smoking or in the presence of an open flame.
• When using oxygen with this system, the oxygen supply must comply with local regulations for medical oxygen.
• Do not connect the device to an unregulated or high pressure oxygen source.
• Do not use the device near a source of toxic or harmful vapors.
• Do not use this device if the room temperature is warmer than 35° C (95° F). If the device is used at room temperatures warmer
than 35° C (95° F), the temperature of the airflow may exceed 43° C (109° F). This could cause irritation or injury to your airway.
• Do not operate the device in direct sunlight or near a heating appliance because these conditions can increase the temperature of
the air coming out of the device.
• If you notice any unexplained changes in the performance of this device, if it is making unusual or harsh sounds, if it has been
dropped or mishandled, if water is spilled into the enclosure, or if the enclosure is broken, disconnect the power cord and
discontinue use. Contact your home care provider.
• Periodically inspect electrical cords and cables for damage or signs of wear. Discontinue use and replace if damaged.
• To avoid electrical shock, always unplug the power cord from the wall outlet before cleaning the device. DO NOT immerse the
device in any fluids.
• If the device is used by multiple persons (such as rental devices), a low-resistance, main flow bacteria filter should be installed inline between the device and the circuit tubing to prevent contamination.
• The BiPAP autoSV Advanced System One device can deliver pressures up to 25 cm H2O. In the unlikely event of certain fault
conditions, pressures of up to 35 cm H2O are possible.
• The data obtained when using an Oximetry module accessory is not considered to be diagnostic and is not to be used in the
diagnosis of a patient’s condition.
Note: Please see the “Limited Warranty” section of this manual for information on warranty coverage.
Cautions
A Caution indicates the possibility of damage to the device.
• Pins of connectors should not be touched. Connections should not be made to these connectors unless ESD precautionary
procedures are used. Precautionary procedures include methods to prevent build-up of electrostatic charge (e.g., air conditioning,
humidification, conductive floor coverings, non-synthetic clothing), discharging one’s body to the frame of the equipment or
system or to earth or a large metal object, and bonding oneself by means of a wrist strap to the equipment or system or to earth.

System Overview
The BiPAP autoSV Advanced System One device is intended to augment your breathing by supplying pressurized
air through a circuit. It senses the your breathing effort by monitoring airflow in the circuit and adjusts its output to
assist in inhalation and exhalation. This therapy is known as Bi-level ventilation. Bi-level ventilation provides a higher
pressure, known as IPAP (Inspiratory Positive Airway Pressure), when you inhale, and a lower pressure, known as
EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure), when you exhale. The higher pressure makes it easier for you to inhale,
and the lower pressure makes it easier for you to exhale.
When prescribed, the device can also provide features to help make your therapy more comfortable. The ramp
function allows you to lower the pressure when trying to fall asleep. The air pressure will gradually increase until the
prescription pressure is reached. Additionally, the Bi-Flex comfort feature provides increased pressure relief during
the expiratory phase of breathing.
Several accessories are also available for use with the device. Contact your home care provider to purchase any
accessories not included with your system.

Available Therapy Features
If prescribed for you, the device provides the following therapy features.
Bi-Flex Comfort Feature
If enabled, the device provides a comfort feature called Bi-Flex. The Bi-Flex attribute adjusts therapy by inserting a
small amount of pressure relief during the latter stages of inspiration and during active exhalation (the beginning part
of exhalation). Bi-Flex levels of 1, 2, or 3 progressively reflect increased pressure relief that will take place at the end
of inspiration and at the beginning of expiration.
Ramp
If enabled, the device is equipped with a linear ramp function. The Ramp feature will reduce the pressure and
then gradually increase (ramp) the pressure to the prescription pressure setting so patients can fall asleep more
comfortably.
Rise Time Comfort Feature
If enabled, the device provides a comfort feature called Rise Time. Rise time is the amount of time it takes the device
to change from the expiratory pressure setting to the inspiratory pressure setting. Rise time levels of 0, 1, 2, or 3
progressively reflect slowed response of the pressure increase that will take place at the beginning of inspiration. A
setting of 0 is the fastest rise time while a setting of 3 is the slowest. Providers should adjust the rise time to find the
most comfortable setting for the patient. Rise time cannot be adjusted when Bi-Flex is enabled.

Troubleshooting
The table below lists some of the problems you may experience with your device and possible solutions to those problems.
Problem
Nothing happens when you apply
power to the device. The backlights on
the buttons do not light.
Why It Happened
There is no power at the
outlet or the device is
unplugged.
What to Do
If you are using AC power, check the outlet and verify that the device
is properly plugged in. Make sure there is power available at the outlet.
Make sure the AC power cord is connected correctly to the power
supply and the power supply cord is securely connected to the device’s
power inlet. If the problem continues to occur, contact your home care
provider. Return both the device and power supply to your provider, so
they can determine if the problem is with the device or power supply.
If you are using DC power, make sure your DC power cord and battery
adaptor cable connections are secure. Check your battery. It may need
recharged or replaced. If the problem persists, check the DC cord’s fuse
following the instructions supplied with your DC cord. The fuse may
need to be replaced. If the problem still occurs, contact your home care
provider.
The airflow does not turn on.
There may be a problem
with the blower.
Make sure the device is powered correctly. Make sure “Therapy” or the
icon is highlighted when pressing the control wheel to start airflow. If
the airflow does not turn on, there may be a problem with your device.
Contact your home care provider for assistance.
The device’s display is erratic.
The device has been
dropped or mishandled,
or the device is in an area
with high Electromagnetic
Interference (EMI) emissions.
Unplug the device. Reapply power to the device. If the problem
continues, relocate the device to an area with lower EMI emissions (away
from electronic equipment such as cellular phones, cordless phones,
computers, TVs, electronic games, hair dryers, etc.). If the problem still
occurs, contact your home care provider for assistance.
The Ramp feature does not work
when you press the Ramp button.
Your home care provider
did not prescribe Ramp for
you, or your prescription
pressure is already set to the
minimum setting.
If Ramp has not been prescribed for you, discuss this feature with your
home care provider to see if they will change your prescription.
The air filters may be dirty.
Clean or replace the air filters.
The device may be operating
in direct sunlight or near a
heater.
The temperature of the air may vary somewhat based on your room
temperature. Make sure that the device is properly ventilated. Keep the
device away from bedding or curtains that could block the flow of air
around the device. Make sure the device is away from direct sunlight and
heating equipment.
The airflow is much warmer than
usual.
If your provider has enabled Ramp, but the feature still does not work,
check the pressure setting on the Monitor Pressure screen. If it is set to
the minimum setting (4.0 cm H2O), or the starting pressure is the same
as the prescribed pressure, the Ramp feature will not work.
If using the humidifier with the device, check the humidifier settings. Refer
to the humidifier instructions to make sure the humidifier is working
properly. If the problem continues, contact your home care provider.
The airflow pressure feels too high or
too low.
The Tubing type setting may
be incorrect.
Make sure the Tubing type setting (22 or 15) matches the tubing that you
are using (Respironics 22 mm tubing, or the optional Respironics 15 mm
tubing). If the problem continues, contact your home care provider.
The mask feels uncomfortable to
wear, there is significant air leakage
around the mask, or you experience
other mask-related issues.
This could be due to
improper headgear
adjustment or improper
mask fitting.
Make sure you are properly fitted with the correct size mask. If the
problem continues, contact your home care provider to be fitted with a
different mask.
You have a runny nose.
This may be caused by a
nasal reaction to the airflow.
Contact your home care provider.
