RE: All new to me
It sounds like you are in good hands, and received the Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset with all the 'fix'ins'. The unusual item is the outlet allergy filter, which I assume is due to allergies and asthma. Keep an eye on the filter because it is in a moist, warm airstream and is prone to mildew and blockage, and requires a setting on your machine settings. The biggest thing you can do is to download and install the free Oscar program, which will provide much more detail and information than MyAir https://www.sleepfiles.com/OSCAR We encourage new users to use the data in Oscar to optimize the pressure on their machines, especially if you have been set to a wide-open default pressure of 4-20. Good luck with your therapy, and consider posting some charts if you want to learn more. Tutorial links are in my signature for organizing charts and posting attachments.

Hi Trustf1!  -  Welcome

You have a very good CPAP.  To better understand your apnea and how your AS10 is treating it, I recommend that you, 1. Have or get an SD card 2 -32Gb in size, to insert in the AS10 for data collection, and 2. Download OSCAR, a free data analysis software app.  The download link is in the name, as well as, at the top of each screen on the forum.

As a side note: Some AS10s came with an SD card and others didn't.  The SD slot/door is on the upper left side when facing the AS10.  If you don't have an SD card, you can obtain one from almost any general merchandise type of store or online.  Any brand will work, you do not need to purchase a Resmed branded version.

Good luck!
