If you do not use the for Her mode, there is no difference other than the case.. your sleep doctor is wrong.

RE: My Supplier Says There's No Difference Between a "for Her" Airsense10 and others..
This short description borrowed from Mr. Google...

WHY THE RESMED AIRSENSE 10 AUTOSET FOR HER IS IDEAL FOR WOMEN

"The For Her model of ResMed’s popular CPAP machine has a more sensitive flow algorithm that picks up Hypopneas/flow limitation better than the standard model. Often females have more Hypopneas and flow limitation than Males due to menopause or any hormonal imbalances."

"ResMed’s pioneering women-specific algorithm used in the AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her works by increasing sensitivity to flow limitation and optimizing the response to these events. By responding to each flow-limited breath, the algorithm helps to provide comfortable therapy for women and does not let the pressure increase dramatically during the detection of these hypopneas/flow-limitation events."

"This device is not just for women, however; any patients with sensitive airways or suffering from Asthma, COPD, or Emphysema would also benefit from using the ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her algorithm."


Now with that said, there seems to be a lot of men that use the "for her" mode too.  

Also of note:  The new AirSense 11 AutoSet will incorporate the "for her" mode.  So this new machine will have three modes:
Cpap, Auto and Auto For Her.

That explains it.Thanks

Actually she is just the supplier, not a doctor, but I see what you mean.

  • Reduces the rate of pressure increases
  • Slower pressure decays
    Note: the above two can also be achieved in regular AutoSet mode by setting Response to Soft
  • Will not increase pressure in response to OAs if pressure is 12cm or higher, but will still respond to FLs and Snores
  • Will establish the current pressure as the new minimum pressure, if two OAs occur within a minute

So the "for her" models only have an extra quick set for women.
That makes more sense.

NOT just for women, many men use it also. It was unquestionably developed and targeted for women.
