First Appointment with Sleep Doctor

More confusing info - the ResMed Airsense 10 Autoset for Her model has both the "For Her" auto-adjusting algorithm and the regular Resmed auto algorithm. That gives you two choices of algorithms (software programs, basically) to determine how much pressure you need. It's nice to have if it's available to you.

I have seen posts by a few people on this forum who have the regular Airsense 10 Autoset machine who have said that their machines have the "For Her" algorithm as well as the basic one. So you might want to look in the settings for your machine to see if you have that.

There may be other differences between the two machines, too, but you'll have to ask a ResMed user. I know the "For Her" has flowers on it. Coffee

If you want copies of the Clinician's Manuals for these two machines for purpose of comparison, you can find instructions near the bottom of this page to have them e-mailed to you.
Thanks again, green wings. I have the Airsense 10 manual, and I just requested the "for her" manual. I told the sleep dr. that I had asked for a "for her" unit at my sleep study (titration), but I received the other one. He said "well, they're the same..." and I said "yeah, except for the color." I told him that very little about this CPAP process is fun, and I thought the girly unit would have been nice.
Hope it's a great day for you!

sautee,
You may want to show this information to your doctor and educated him/her. You can find this information easily, just google it.

The AirSense 10 for Her is the very first machine specifically designed for the female sleep apnea patient. Equip with FDA approved algorithm designed to respond to upper respiratory disturbances, further alleviating obstructive sleep apnea.

For Her Machine, the first ever machine specifically designed for the female demographic. ResMed has developed an FDA approved "For Her" algorithm that tracks upper respiratory disturbances found in the patient. The machine will respond immediately to any respiratory incident, altering pressure after a single unnatural breath.

Additionally, the machine features an aesthetic floral-themed design which should appeal to the female user.


There is a difference, not just color, and you should ask for the machine you want.
