I'm still a week away from my titration and 3 weeks away from seeing the Sleep Doctor to get my script for my machine. So, I'll just keep asking questions like this until I actually HAVE something to use.
I know it is a fairly new product, but for those of you who have the Air Sense 10 auto for Her vs. whatever you had before, how are you liking it?
If you previously had a machine with the hose on top, how annoying is it to get used to a hose that comes from the back of the machine? For instance, does it make it harder to access in the middle of the night if you have to get up?
I only had a S9 as a loaner for 3 months before the A10 Autoset for Her.
-smaller footprint on the night table. Big plus for me. I like my glasses and books and phone, and lamp and clock.
-modem built-in to transmit your data to My Air for causal monitoring if your AHI.
-algorithm has smaller pressure jumps, which makes sense since most women have smaller lung volume than men. So less waking from pressure.
-algorithm seems to control my apnea and events well.
-controls are intuitive, even when inside the clinician setting. Easy to get into to adjust settings.
-modem is built-in. Therefor use airplane mode to turn off if you don't want your data transmitted anywhere.
-24 V, so use on a battery can be problematic (if you go camping, etc.)
-if you don't want to use the humidifier and take it with you when you travel, you need to buy a side plate
Um, hose placement isn't an issue, because you undo the mask or the shorter connection near you. I don't walk around with 6 feet of hose. Except when gardening, and then there is a lot more.
Overall, very well designed machine. Costs $$, but I thank my doc he wrote the scrip for it.
