Good job Sharp for breaking down the Resmed Airsense 10.
I am approximately 11 days in of newly diagnosed with moderate sleep apnea. After night one of treatment, I felt different when I woke up. I noticed my headache was gone. Further, I no longer woke up like a stupefied zombie feeling exhausted.
After finishing night 7 of therapy, I noted I felt fabulous. I feel like I have a tremendous amount of energy. I am no longer gritchy. I feel like I have a new lease on life. I could probably still take a nap around 2 pm if I were at home and not at work. My inner attitude and outlook on life have completely changed. For the first time in a very long time I feel amazing.
My sleep study showed moderate obs sleep apnea with short sleep onset latency, 119 hypopneas, 113 arousals 26 of which were spontaneous, spontaneous arousal index 3.6 per hour. Overall breaks down to 16.7 events per hours. 2 obstructive events total. Sleep onset 2.8 minutes after lights out and shortened slow wave sleep @4%.
I really appreciate you clear and concise breakdown of this awesome life changing machine. I use the air pillows with much success.
I sincerely hope you experience the same life changing success that I have enjoyed.

Interesting that you say that. I am only 13 days in with cap use. The originally prescribed was 5 to 15. I have noticed some nights raising up to 14.3. I have been looking at sleepy head data as well as rescan. Last night I did raise the bottom number up to six. Spent most of the night between 11 and 12. Ahi are usually less than 2. Total time in apnea according to sleepy head is somewhere between 2 to 3 minutes. I am very interested in tweaking my settings. Any and all input is greatly appreciated.
Just started with one (this model) and I have an alarm that has gone off sometimes at night waking my wife. Can't seem to find anything on it as to just what it is and how to silence it. Any ideas on that?
