3B Medical RESmart CPAP

The RESmart CPAP is a traditional, fixed-pressure CPAP machine, meaning it delivers airflow at a consistent, predetermined level of pressure throughout the night. Like the other RESmart models, the RESmart CPAP features an integrated heated humidifier, RESlex pressure relief, and detailed data tracking.

Tuck customer satisfaction rating: 93% (132 customer reviews)

Pros
  • RESlex technology helps you breathe easier by releasing pressure as you exhale
  • Features alerts for tube and mask leaks
  • Holds 365 days of advanced data with information on snore index, Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI), and more
  • Integration with cloud-based iCodeConnect lets you access data remotely
Cons
  • No self-adjusting pressure function for sleepers with fluctuating pressure needs
  • Size and weight may make it ill-suited for travel

3B Medical RESmart Auto CPAP

As a self-titrating machine, the RESmart Auto automatically detects and adjusts airflow to accommodate changing pressure needs throughout the night. Though its self-adjusting function makes it unique, the RESmart Auto includes the same essential features of the RESmart CPAP. 

Tuck customer satisfaction rating: 96% (68 customer reviews)

Pros
  • Auto-adjusting function raises and decreases therapy pressure based on breathing patterns and events
  • Includes RESlex exhalation relief, advanced data tracking with remote access, and leak alerts
  • Size and weight may make it ill-suited for travel

RESmart BPAP Auto Bi-Level

The RESmart BPAP Auto Bi-Level is a BiPAP or BiLevel CPAP machine, which means it delivers two distinct pressures for inhalation and exhalations. The RESmart BPAP Auto Bi-Level also includes self-titrating technology that adjusts pressure on every inhale and exhale according to breathing patterns and events.

Tuck customer satisfaction rating: 91% (76 customer reviews)

Pros
  • Sophisticated Auto Bilevel technology adjusts pressure according to every inhale and exhale in response to changing needs during the night
  • Higher pressure setting range for those with mid- to high-level pressure needs
  • Includes REslex exhalation relief, advanced data tracking with remote access, and leak alerts
Cons
  • High price point
  • Size and weight may make it ill-suited for travel

3B Medical Luna CPAP

The Luna CPAP is part of the Luna collection, the most recent line of CPAP devices from 3B Medical. The Luna devices set themselves apart from the RESmart models with their real-time, free WiFi data reporting that allows you to track your progress on-the-go. The Luna CPAP is a fixed-pressure CPAP device with an integrated heated humidifier.

Tuck customer satisfaction rating: 90% (77 customer reviews)

Pros
  • WiFi connectivity automatically uploads advanced data to the cloud from anywhere
  • Connects to 3B Luna app for easy access to compliance data
  • Includes RESlex exhalation relief
Cons
  • No self-adjusting pressure function for sleepers with fluctuating pressure needs

3B Medical Luna Auto CPAP

The 3B Medical Luna Auto CPAP is identical to the 3B Medical Luna CPAP with one important exception: it functions as an auto-adjusting machine. As with the RESmart Auto CPAP, the Luna Auto self-adjusts to changing pressure needs during the night.

Tuck customer satisfaction rating: 89% (67 customer reviews)

Pros
  • Auto-adjusting function raises and decreases therapy pressure based on breathing patterns and events
  • Includes WiFi connectivity, RESlex pressure relief, and advanced data reporting
Cons
  • Some users report that the machine is loud

Which 3B Medical CPAP machine will work for me?

Wondering which 3B Medical CPAP machine will work best for you? To choose between the many models of 3B Medical CPAP devices, a good place to start is determining what type of CPAP machine you’ll need: a traditional CPAP, auto-adjusting, or bilevel.

You may benefit from an auto-adjusting CPAP device like the RESmart Auto or the Luna Auto if you have varying pressure needs over the course of the night. This is often true of users who tend to shift sleep positions, since a higher level of pressure is generally required when sleeping on your back versus your side. Patients who suffer from seasonal allergies may also want to consider an auto-adjusting machine, as they may need higher pressure levels during periods of congestion. Finally, users who take sedatives or drink alcohol may want to choose an auto-adjusting machine, as these substances can cause changes in your pressure needs.

Alternatively, you may be best suited for a bilevel device like the RESmart BPAP Auto Bi-Level if you have higher pressure needs. Not only do bilevel machines typically offer a higher pressure setting range, these devices deliver different pressures for inhalations and exhalations. Exhaling over a high level of pressure can be challenging and uncomfortable, so having a lower setting for exhales can help you breath easier. The RESmart BPAP Auto Bi-Level is also self-adjusting, which means it will adapt to changing pressure needs with each individual inhale and exhale, similar to the RESmart Auto or Luna Auto.

Because of the WiFi connectivity included in the Luna devices, we recommend going for a Luna over a RESmart if you travel a lot — particularly if you like camping. The Luna’s wireless data means you can continue to receive real-time data analysis and reporting even when you aren’t connected to WiFi, which is handy if you’re in a remote, outdoor location.
