Respiratory Effort-Related Arousal (RERA) reporting is a feature within the AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her that logs and stores effort-related sleep disturbances. The therapy device detects indications of arousals, which are reported through AirView. As part of the new AutoSet for Her algorithm, the feature provides additional clinical insight by identifying indications of arousals which are often related to short events
Advanced event detection
The AirSense 10 AutoSet differentiates between obstructive and central apneas and can also detect Cheyne-Stokes respiration,
AutoRamp with sleep onset detection delivers a low pressure to help patients fall asleep with ease. Once the patient is asleep, it comfortably ramps up the pressure to ensure the prescribed level is delivered the moment the patient needs it.
* Using AirView, ResMed’s cloud-based patient management system, you can access nightly therapy data, troubleshoot remotely (using the remote assist feature) and change device settings remotely.
* The user-friendly controls, intuitive interface and color LCD screen make it simple to navigate menus and customize comfort settings.
*AutoRamp with sleep onset detection works by delivering a low pressure to help patients fall asleep with ease. Once it detects they’re asleep, it comfortably ramps up the pressure to ensure the prescribed level is delivered the moment they need it.
* The quiet Easy-Breathe motor makes for a peaceful environment for the patient and their bed partner.
* Built-in ambient light sensor adjusts the brightness of the screen based on the light in the room and turns off automatically.
* Pulse oximetry monitoring is available.
*Integrated humidification simplifies setting up the device and makes therapy easier for your patients.
* Expiratory pressure relief (EPR) maintains the optimal treatment for the patient during inhalation and reduces pressure during exhalation.
I'm pretty new to cpap and was about to order an S9 AutoSet but now I'm wondering if I should wait another couple of weeks and get the Airsense. I have an AutoSet now that's coming to the end if the introductory rental period but I can extend on a week to week basis if I choose to.
Any recommendations? Do I wait and get the Airsense 10 and be a guinea pig or stick with the known entity of the AutoSet?
From what has been posted so far I don't see a huge change in the specifications but of course it is early days. I would be more interested to know if there have been any changes to the inbuilt algorithms that the flow generator uses in detecting events.
"Dear Mr. Doc,"
"Sadly the puppy seems to have eaten my S9. So please send me out a new machine. While we're at it, send the S10 Autoset and I'll test it for ya! How's that for a plan? By the way, I'm a little unhappy that the guy version doesn't do the RERA stuff. What is that about?"
