Frequently Asked Questions
How will it feel when I am breathing with the S8 Escape II?
When you first use your S8 Escape II, you may feel uncomfortable breathing
against the airflow. This is normal. You will continue to breathe normally while
you sleep. The EPR setting may also improve comfort. Take time to adjust to this
new sensation.
What do I do when I want to get up in the night?
If you need to get up during the night, remove your mask and stop therapy.
Always remember to restart therapy and put your mask on when you return to
bed.
What do I do if I feel air leaking out of the mask?
The S8 Escape II delivers the most effective treatment when the mask is well
fitted and comfortable. Treatment can be affected by leaks, so it is important to
eliminate any leaks that may arise. For example, try repositioning the mask and
adjusting the straps.
If you are using a nasal mask, try to keep your mouth closed during treatment.
Air leaks from your mouth can decrease the effectiveness of your treatment. If
mouth leaks are a problem, a full face mask or chin strap may help. Contact your
clinician or equipment supplier for further details.
If you are using a full face mask and you have problems trying to get a
comfortable mask fit, contact your clinician or equipment supplier. You may
benefit from a different size or style of mask.
10
338518 American Multi.book Page 11 Tuesday, February 5, 2008 2:07 PM
Before wearing your mask, wash your face to remove excess facial oils. This will
allow a better fit and prolong the life of the mask cushion.
Do not use moisturizer when wearing a mask.
English
Anything special I should do before putting the mask on?
My mouth feels dry during treatment—what can I do?
You may experience dryness of the nose, mouth, and/or throat during the course
of treatment, especially during winter. In many cases, a humidifier may resolve
this discomfort. Contact your clinician for advice.
My nose is irritated during treatment—what can I do?
You may experience sneezing and/or a runny or blocked nose during the first few
weeks of treatment. In many cases, nasal irritation can be resolved with a
humidifier. Consult your clinician or equipment supplier for advice.
Can I travel with the S8 Escape II?
Your S8 Escape II has an internal power supply that enables it to operate in other
countries. It will operate on power supplies of 100–240V and 50/60Hz. No special
adjustment is necessary, but you will require an approved power cord for the

Read the entire guide before using the S8 Escape II.
Advice contained in this guide should not supersede instructions given by the
prescribing physician.
A patient should not connect a device to the data communication port unless
instructed to do so by their health care provider or physician. Only ResMed
products are designed to be connected to the data communication port.
Connecting other devices could result in injury, or damage to the S8 Escape II
device.
The S8 Escape II should be used with masks (and connectors)*
recommended by ResMed, or by a physician or respiratory therapist. A mask
should not be used unless the S8 Escape II device is turned on and operating
properly. The vent hole or holes associated with the mask should never be
blocked.
Explanation: The S8 Escape II is intended to be used with special masks (or
connectors)* which have vent holes 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 vent holes. However,
when the device is not operating, insufficient fresh air will be provided
through the mask, and the exhaled air may be rebreathed. Rebreathing of
exhaled air for longer than several minutes can, in some circumstances, lead
to suffocation. This applies to most models of CPAP devices.
In the event of power failure or machine malfunction, remove the mask.
The S8 Escape II can be set to deliver pressures up to 20 cm H2O. In the
unlikely event of certain fault conditions, pressures up to 30 cm H2O are
possible.
If oxygen is used with this device, the oxygen flow must be turned off when
the device is not operating.
If the oxygen has been left on, turn off the device, then wait 30 minutes
before turning on the device again.
Explanation: When the CPAP device is not in operation and the oxygen flow
is left on, oxygen delivered into the air delivery tubing may accumulate within
the CPAP machine enclosure and create a risk of fire. This applies to most
types of CPAP machines.
• Oxygen supports combustion. Oxygen should not be used while you are
smoking or in the presence of an open flame.
• Always ensure airflow is being generated by the device before the oxygen
supply is turned on.
• Always turn the oxygen supply off before stopping the airflow from the
device.
*
14
Ports may be incorporated into the mask or in connectors that are near the mask.
Note: At a fixed rate of supplemental oxygen flow, the inhaled oxygen
concentration will vary, depending on where the oxygen is introduced, the
pressure settings, patient breathing pattern, mask selection, and leak rate.
• Do not use the S8 Escape II if there are obvious external defects or
unexplained changes in performance.
• Do not open the S8 Escape II case. There are no user serviceable parts
inside. Repairs and internal servicing should only be performed by an
authorized service agent.
• Explosion hazard—do not use in the vicinity of flammable anesthetics.
English
338518 American Multi.book Page 15 Tuesday, February 5, 2008 2:07 PM
Cautions
At low pressures, the flow through the exhalation ports of your mask may not
clear all exhaled gas from the tubing. Some rebreathing may occur.
• The airflow for breathing produced by this device can be as much as 11ºF
(6ºC) higher than the temperature of the room. Caution should be exercised if
the room temperature is warmer than 90ºF (32ºC).
• When AC mains power (100–240V AC) is not available, always use a ResMed
DC-12 converter. (The DC-12 converter is available as an optional accessory. It
is not supplied with all models.)
•
Note: The above are general warnings and cautions. Specific warnings,
cautions, and notes appear with the relevant instructions in the manual.
