First off, thanks for providing so much great information on this forum! I'm meeting with my DME tomorrow to pick up a new APAP machine and decided on the AirSense 10 auto over the DreamStation. Although I've decided on the machine I want, I've heard people mention that even if you're a male it would be better to pick the "for her" model over the standard unit.
It looks like there is one additional algorithm available on the "for her" unit that isn't available on the standard unit and everything else is functionally the same.
1. Will I miss out on any functionality in the standard unit if I select the "for her" model?
2. Anyone else that went this route - Did you run into any issues by picking up the "for her" unit?
3. Any other thoughts or input?
Thanks in advance!

I have the "Airsense for Her" model. Basically, you get an extra algorithm to try and you may find that is the one for you! The only disadvantage is that you may have to wait for your machine. My provider, Lincare, did not have it in stock. I had to wait 10 days. Other than that, I prefer the lighter color. I'm sick to death of appliances that are black. Other than that, operationally, there are no differences. The humidifier unit is the same. The buttons are all the same, you use the same supplies. Sleepyhead reads it just fine.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
You won't miss out on anything if you get the for her model, in fact, there is an extra treatment mode on that model.
Hang in there for more answers to your questions and much success to you as you continue with your CPAP therapy.
