If you have a bad seal between machine and humidifier compartment - get a new replacement. The machine has a 2 year warranty.

The setup manual (Clinical Guide) shows disassembly/assembly drawings and instructions for installing the gasket which goes between the tank and the unit. Maybe only the gasket needs to be replaced.



Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

Air sense 10 auto as I really need your honest opinion as. The sellers will never bag them their trying to sell them thank you.

There are two auto CPAP units under the Airsense 10 line. The Escape Auto is a brick. Don't buy or accept. The Autoset is a top of the line machine with very good features and data. It is one of the best auto CPAP machines available.

The Escape Auto is an S9, there is no Escape Auto in the AirSense 10 series

I have taken the gasket out and cleaned it but it made no difference. As above I'm going to see my clinician this week and I will see what they say.

The manual says to clean tube weekly. I still don't understand why. I get where mold and other nasty critters could form due to moisture. But the moisture is coming from the humidifier which is supposed have distilled water in it. And the machine pumps air through the tube for twenty minutes after you shut it off. The entire purpose of this feature is to make sure the tube is dry.

Everybody has different conditions in their home. Your unit is not sterile. Bacteria can get into the distilled water or into the hose from your breathing. Some people have very dry homes, others have humid homes. Still others may have unknown mold growing in their homes. So, a recommendation of once a week is pretty reasonable. You, as the consumer, can decide what you will or won't do. If you have a good immune system and feel comfortable that your hose is always dry, then you can make a choice not to wash your hose as regularly as me or any other poster. But, for newbies, the general guidelines from manufacturers is to wash your hose once a week. Your chances of getting a respiratory infection if you forget is small. I personally don't support the idea of never washing it, but that poster is comfortable with that choice.

Probably a lawyer told them that they needed to do that in case they get sued by someone who got sick from a dirty hose.
