Does Airsense 10 require periodic calibration checks?

Does Airsense 10 require periodic calibration checks?
Does Airsense 10 require periodic calibration checks?  Does anything go out of the tolerance?  Like how it senses it's pressure output, or perhaps reduces pressure output over long term usage?

Is there annual check-up for that?  When I visited a DME, he pulled out some sort of pressure detecting instrument with a gauge.  

How often does it need to be checked and anybody have experience the machines degrading over time?

RE: Does Airsense 10 require periodic calibration checks?
The accuracy of the pressure matters little. Why? Because you adjust pressure(s) to optimize your therapy. For that there are IMHO 2 phases. The first is to get you under 5 and hopefully near 2.5 by adjusting your various pressure settings up or down depending on what you are trying to accomplish. The second phase is all about comfort. Adjusting settings again, but not for therapy, but for comfort. This is a very subjective tuning.
