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.When the S9 Autoset came out in 2010, its was something like "man first step walking on the moon" with central apnea detection and enhanced algorthim. I would need more information and most importantly the clinical manual to consider the "AirSense 10 AutoSet". The S9 had problems with the "ClimateLine" overheating in the first versions (I had mine replaced under warranty) and ResMed made improvement in later versions. Who knows, Fisher & Paykel (F&P) might sue ResMed for stealing the name "Sense" as in "SensAwake". In Airsense, ResMed took the funkiness of F&P Icon and integrated humidifier and some of the data reporting of Phillips Respironcis. I like the look of the "AirSense" especially the humidifier, much improvement from the S9 silly door latches and hard to see the water mark level on the water tank
Any recommendations? Do I wait and get the Airsense 10 and be a guinea pig or stick with the known entity of the AutoSet?
As for "stick with the S9", for now, I say stick with the S9 and make sure its the "AutoSet" model but the price always going be much higher in Australia
