Fisher & Paykel makes several CPAP models designed to help patients with sleep apnea keep breathing at night. Special features of Fisher & Paykel CPAP machines include Ambient Tracking Plus to increase temperature and compensate for moisture loss in the event of a leak, and Leak Compensation to increase the CPAP machine's motor speed to compensate for any leaks. All Fisher & Paykel CPAP machines reduce pressure automatically when they sense that the patient has awakened to provide greater comfort for patients intolerant of the machine's pressure; the pressure reduction takes between 30 and 120 seconds, as Fisher & Paykel notes.

Fisher & Paykel CPAP machines also use a controlled heated breathing tube humidifier rather than a conventional humidifier to decrease nasal symptoms and condensation. This results in a better sleep environment, higher quality sleep and a CPAP experience that's more comfortable overall, according to Fisher & Paykel.
