The all-new AirSense 10 from ResMed – which recently had its debut release – has a lot of firsts for a CPAP machine. It is the first CPAP system to incorporate wireless cloud computing, it is the first CPAP machine that offers personalized and customizable support, and it is the first system with advanced sleep onset detection. Without overstating, you could honestly say that the AirSense 10 is a remarkable leap in the evolution of CPAP technology; and it is possibly the most advanced auto-adjusting CPAP device on the market. The AirSense 10 offers numerous groundbreaking features that are a testament to this drastic evolution.
Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the AirSense 10 is that it is ready to go right out of the box – there is absolutely no complicated set up. Not a lot of CPAP systems are ready to operate right out of the box, especially a system with so many advanced features. Many sleep apnea sufferers assume that a system with so many features must be complicated to operate – the AirSense 10 will certainly prove otherwise. There are no complex menus or settings to program – all you have to do is press the ‘start’ button and you are ready to go. Plus, the heated humidifier is built in, so there is no second-guessing to determine what piece goes where.
Speaking of integrated features, the AirSense 10 comes with a number of built in features and components that make this machine an outstanding example of how unbelievably comfortable a CPAP system can be. Just take the new AutoRamp setting – the AirSense 10 will be able to detect when you are trying to fall asleep and when you finally fall asleep; it will then adjust the pressure settings accordingly. You can also use the new SmartStart function, which turns your CPAP system on the moment you breathe into it and stops a few seconds after you take your mask off – this is intuitive design at its finest.
Other comfort features include the updated AutoSet algorithm, which can detect minute irregularities in your breathing, body movements, and other events, so that you can get the most optimal pressure setting exactly when you need it. And if you want to make rainout a thing of the past, you can connect the optional ClimateLineAir heated tube, which is already preset and preprogrammed – again, all you have to do is plug in and press start. The unique Climate Control technology – with advanced algorithmic encoding – does all of the work for you, so you don’t have to give it a second thought.
On top of comfort, the AirSense was also built with a plethora of other features and settings that allow you to get a better night of sleep. For instance, the ultra-quiet Easy-Breathe motor offers whisper quiet operation, which means no more frustrating nights of drowning the sound out with a pillow over your head. The system also comes with an ambient light sensor, which monitors the amount of light in the room to make sure the LCD screen isn’t too bright. Also, the screen’s backlight will turn off automatically, so that you can rest comfortably without a glowing blue or green screen keeping you up all night – finally, a CPAP machine that allows you to get some well deserved rest.
Also, the AirSense 10 incorporates cloud-computing technology. Cloud computing is unique because it absolves the need for wires, hard drives and back up data devices. The AirSense 10 uses a program called myAir to record and monitor compliance data, so that you can review the progress of your therapy from a computer or tablet device. The cloud also allows the AirSense to be programmed and adjusted remotely, which makes working with your doctor more effective. And with a remote assist feature, you can have problems and issues taken care right away. You can even ask myAir to send you helpful advice and words of encouragement via text message or email – nothing like a little reassuring boost to get the most out of your CPAP treatment.
As you can see, the AirSense 10 definitely sets the bar. Not only does the AirSense 10 offer totally intuitive design, but it also offers simplified functionality in a CPAP platform that is packed with groundbreaking features – from the ability to automatically ramp up pressure settings to cloud based wireless capabilities. The AirSense 10 also comes in four different models – the AirSense 10 CPAP, AirSense 10 Elite (with a premium fixed pressure and advanced event detection), the AirSense 10 AutoSet (with premium auto-adjusting pressure settings), and the AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her, which is the first CPAP machine designed specifically for female patients. Across the board, you will find that the AirSense 10 CPAP system will be a revolution in the way you treat your obstructive sleep apnea.
