RE: CPAP or VAuto
ResMed Air Sense 10 for her is an "Autoset." VAuto does not apply.
There's a VPAP Auto -- but, that's an entirely different animal.

Go for the ResMed Air Sense 10 for her if you can... it can always be set to run in straight CPAP mode.

yep agree 100%, Autoset is great, you can turn it off, and you want data capable so you can see what is happening while you sleep.
