RE: Airsense 10 Auto
Hi cajones,

I always suggest getting the AirSense 10 AutoSet For Her model rather than the standard charcoal-colored A10 AutoSet model. The A10 AutoSet For Her model has everything the standard A10 AutoSet has, plus the new gentler AutoSet for Her therapy mode to choose, to see if it works better for you. Having options increases our chances for success.

The standard AutoSet algorithm can lead to awakenings from the pressure rising too quickly for some patients, or can lead to too much aerophagia (swallowing excessive amounts of air) because it is more aggressive in raising the pressure than the algorithm used in the For Her model or the algorithms used in other APAP machines such as the Philips Respironics System One Auto.

Also, the A10 AutoSet For Her model costs the same but I think its resale value in the private market would be higher than the standard A10 AutoSet model - in case you want to upgrade in a few years, or in case you need to upgrade because you find you need a different type of machine, bi-level or ASV).

Take care,
--- Vaughn

I have had no real problems with my Airsense 10 auto. The cell modem no longer works - but that's not really a problem. Big Grinnie

It does have some inhalation noise. I have nothing to compare it to so I don't even know if that is a normal sound or not. I have no issues with the 'noise' but it does bother some.



Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

Some pro's and con's both ways. For most it really doesn't matter.

RE: Airsense 10 Auto
I am using this machine. I like it a lot but as a newbie I have nothing else to compare it to. One of the reasons I chose this machine was the built in modem. I like the fact that I don't have to attach a special device to the machine or mail or upload my results to my doctor. I like that convenience factor. I'm not worried about big brother watching - if someone who shouldnt need to wants to read my cpap data I feel sorry for them. Pretty boring stuff. I like the low low noise level - barely detectable -it never wakes up. I have my pressures set for a tight range 4-6, in this way I control what the machine does to me. You can acces all the clinician settings on this machine and software to analyze the stored data on the SD card inside the machine. All that info on how to do this is available at other locations in this forum. This machine has my thumbs up vote.

RE: Airsense 10 Auto
I've ordered an Airsense for Her, so don't have any actual experience. However, a doctor online tried it and his only real complaint was about the humidifier. He found it more difficult to see the fill line than other models. I've seen the machine. It is quite small, so easily taken on a trip. That size can also be a hindrance. I had the S9 working last night without the humidifier and nearly pulled it off the nightstand when I turned over. A similar situation potentially can happen with these very lightweight models, but it does make it easier if you have to lug it around on a trip.

You should try Sleephead and see what data you can't see using the modem.

RE: Airsense 10 Auto
I use the resmed software. My understanding is sleepyhead doesn't work with the air sense 10 auto set.

The only issues I am aware with SleepyHead are on some of the Aircurve 10 models, like the AirCurve 10 ASV and the AirCurve 10 ST

The AirSense A10 AutoSet works fine with Sleepy Head (SH). I have been using both SH and ResScan with my new A10 AutoSet for the last month, but much prefer SH.
