Thank you Paula02. I figured since my question was specific to the ability of the A10 -autoset to break down apneas by type that the best place to post it was the machine forum...but whatever gets me answers is all I care about . Thanks

My first night AHI was 0.2 and last night it was 0.0, the 0.0 was a first for me. Considering my AHI was 126 at my sleep study in '09 I am very pleased with how the ResMed machines have worked for me.

I've had an almost identical experience. I had the S8 since December of '09 then replaced it with the Airsense 10 Autoset in January of 2015 and have been using it ever since. It's so much quieter and more comfortable than the CPAP therapy I was using before. My AHI in the sleep study of April '09 was 84 and now I average below 0.5 AHI. I like the built in myAir feature which allows you to check your numbers over the internet without any special software. My only issue is that I'm opening my mouth at times and sometimes wake up dry. However this only occurs about 1-2 times per week, otherwise I sleep like a log with this machine and am very pleased with it. The humidifier seems a little weak on this machine so I have it cranked up all the way with the optional climate line hose. I've had no issues with rainout using this setup, even in the warmer weather nowadays. All in all it's a great product and if you have it set up properly, I don't think you'll have any major issues.

This is my first machine and I can say that it is very quiet, easy to use and the size is perfect for me as it fits on my night stand. It is no bigger than my digital clock. The only thing that I would like to change is to have the back light on the screen be adjustable so if I want it on longer I can set it up that way. So far it shows my AHI at 0.2 average for the last two weeks and my AHI on my sleep test was 34.

Unfortunately, the honeymoon did not last long, now I take back the 4 stars gave the machine in my first post

The A10 AutoSet increase pressure to the maximum and stay there for most of the night and that causes all sort of problems, swallowing air, increased leaks, and disturb sleep

Just had a nap with my S9 AutoSet, what a difference
The A10 destined to collect dust in the closet

Different people might come to different conclusion but I can only make judgement based on my own experience
I had the same problem....they swapped out the 1st one with another new one and it was like day and night....you may want to talk to your dme
It's exactly like that. . . . only totally different. . . . Sleep-well

My sleep study demonstrated significant REM related obstructive sleep hypopnoea/apnoea with desaturations to a nadir Sa02 of 73%. My overall AHI = 12.8/hr however my supine REM AHI = 62.5/hr and REM AHI = 26.1/hr.

My sleep study indicated I had severe Sleep Apnoea during REM sleep and I was virtually not breathing for long periods of time. I also recorded frequent high level snoring which had become very embarrassing for me in recent years.

REVIEW: 5
Reviewing the overall value of the product as well as performance and ease of use and maintenance of the equipment.

I am not going to lie – it was an expensive investment for me. In my case – I was not borderline OSA - I was virtually looking at not waking up or waking up with a heart attack or stroke sometime in the future if I went untreated. So the value of the APAP is relative to your situation. This machine is very valuable to me because it has changed my life in so many wonderful ways such as:

1. I am now recording below .5 AHI all night and I even got my first 0.00 AHI reading last week. My 02 saturation levels is back up to 97%+ (from a very low sa02 of 73% pre CPAP therapy)

2. I have ENERGY again – gone is the extreme fatigue that I had accepted as normal. I would hit the wall about 3pm every afternoon and was incapable of
doing anything much or going out at night to socialize etc.

3. My blood pressure levels immediately fell to normal BP levels and there are many other health benefits to getting proper sleep and normal 02 saturation of your blood.

3. I no longer snore!!! What a relief it is to not disturb other people’s sleep particularly when travelling with friends.

What I love about this product is the fact that you can monitor your own sleep data with Sleepyhead or myAir to see how you are travelling with your CPAP therapy. It is low maintenance and easy to use once you get used to all the functions which did not take very long at all. It is very quiet and I am barely aware that it is running during the night.

The only small thing is the auto-dim lighting of the display panel – it stays dim at night and it is hard to read in the darknesss. I know there is a reason for this, however I just wish that I could undim it if I want to at night.

This is my first CPAP machine so I cannot compare machines – I can just say that this product did what it advertised it would do and has made such a difference to my life – I cannot imagine ever being without it now.
