4. The only thing that was really different was my highest air flow, it said 5.4 I have never had that low of a maximum air flow reading.

5. I did have rainout, but not as bad as the previous machine. My humidity in the air is 81%, I have the humidifier temp set to 60 degrees. I will probably have to continue adjusting this setting, because I keep my room pretty cold. During winter I sleep under an open window.

6. I tested three masks with the faulty machine and had rainout horribly, I tested the same three masks with my old trusty S9 auto apap and no rainout, I had all the settings set the same. I have two blue gel and one wisp nasal masks.

I really like the look of the machine, I wish the stop button was easier to feel, it's hard to feel for it in the dark in bed. It's small and very close to the on button.

I will continue to record my likes and dislikes and share.

After my second night -the machine showed 16 on my leaksOh-jeez I never had this high of leaks on my S9, the highest I ever with it was 4, it showed 7.5 as my max airflow for that night, for the past 8 months on the s9 my average max was 11.4. So I plan to keep watching this. Not sure what to think. No rain out last night.

Just for the new comers you can adjust or see your readings by holding down both buttons at the home screen you can then toggle through to check your settings and readings.

Hey thank you Frankly Speaking for letting me know how to change the EPR setting, Now if I feel like I'm having trouble on exhale when my pressure is up closer to my max. at night and it wakes me do I want to set it down one or up? it's now set at Auto 2, I also activated to auto on so I'll see if I like that feature.
Thank you!

Hi Van Winkle and welcome.

I am no expert and had to learn most of everything needed on my own (in the beginning I had no insurance so I bought my S9 out of my pocket), I set the machine up using the knowledge from this board, but I learned early on to listen to my body.

If I were you I would adjust the setting down and then wait a week and see if it gets better. This machine seems to take longer to "learn" my breathing habits. My DME originally set my low prescription to 8, this blew me out, the low setting I chose in the beginning was 4, it worked for me. So after a couple of weeks I had to adjust that back down also.

Last night my leaks went down to 11, which are still way high for me based on the S9 and 8 months of results. I had terrible rainout last night, back to the chalk board on that. I have my humidifier temp set to 60 degrees and it was around 55 in my room it was less humid in my room last night so not sure why condensation??? I may pull out my hose kozie and see if that helps. My highest pressure was 8.4 so the machine is working towards my regular pressure of 11.4 based on past results, but it seems to take longer with this newer model.

Glad the hint on the knobs helped. Good luck and Sleep-well

I've been waiting for my heated hose to come in, that should help with the cool air on my nose , but I've also heard that should help with the rainout your having maybe give that a try?, I have not seen that problem yet of course (not even 1 week into my new lifestyle) and here is so dry in the winter months.

RE: ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet
AirSense 10 does not work without the water tank inserted
For someone who does not use humidifier, insert the water tank empty and turn off humidity

There is also a side cover for AirSense 10 by ResMed allows the machine to be used without engaging the integrated humidifier
The side cover is attached to the side of the A10 and replace the water tank

The side cover comes in two colors, charcoal and grey
Charcoal for AutoSet, Elite, and CPAP
Grey color for, AutoSet for Her

Two things:
One, quoting text is not necessary in order to make a post. It is preferable that you don't if what you are going to say is short and the quoted text is huge.
http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...85#pid3285

Two, general questions are best asked in the Main Forum. This is the Review Forum. Since your posts are so quoted and tangled, I will leave them here rather than move them. Please keep this in mind for future questions.

RE: ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet
Zonk,
I have had in my sweaty little hands both an AutoSet 10 and AutoSet 10 For Her. The water tanks you pictured do not look like either that I've had. They were totally clear and shaped a bit differently. ???

NOT a water tank
Its a "SIDE COVER" for AirSense 10 machines, allows the machine to be used without engaging the built-in humidifier and fit in the same spot which the water tank would otherwise fit

Q: have you tried both modes .. AutoSet and AutoSet for Her?
If you did ... have you noted any differences

RE: ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet
Zonk,

Well that shows what happens if I don't pay attention! Sorry.

As for modes on the A10FH:
I ran the first night on standard AutoSet (for him I guess you could say) on 11/19, then on For Her until last night when I went back to For Him mode.
What I noticed primarily was that my PR60 Auto must have been totally messed up as I had virtually every kind of sleep event you can have including RERA, CSR, hypop's and a few CA's.

When I ran the Him, both times, my AHI's declined to the .2's (rather the avg of 3.83 with highs of 5.xx on PRS) and the Her AHI varied between .29 and .3x with one night at 1.23. Last night was my return to the Him mode and I logged a .24.

On both Her and Him and also the PR my settings were Auto 4-11, 2 humidity, and all comfort modes either on or Auto, including Auto Ramp on the RM. I recorded NO RERA, CSR and a rare CA on 1 or 2 nights.

As for "observations" I noticed a much softer start and slower changes on the Her while the Him seemed a little greater, both were very comfortable. My overall average pressure in on both were approx 90%=7.94 and avg=5.82.

Mask fit and pressure on both modes was great (P10 pillows) and better than the PR60.

Since both modes of the FH have the data detail reporting, I intend to remain on the Him mode as it seems to suit me better.

"JC"

RE: ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet
My son has been using the ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet since October 4th, 2014. I still use the ResMed S9 AutoSet.

I had to upgrade my ResScan software so that it would recognize the data from the AirSense.

My son has gotten use to it. It's very quiet. My son has his on the top of his headboard shelf, so the issue of the screen position isn't a problem for him. I can see how that could be a problem for people who place them on the floor.

I made him a tubing holder, so that helped with tangling.

Thanks for making this thread. I actually came here to see if others were discovering issues with this model, so I could be aware of it. So far, so good...
