Resmed Airsense 10 announced today. US availability 8/18/14
#21
The AirSense 10 models are now available on DME websites... as an example, Supplier #1 on our Supplier List is currently offering them for the following prices:

AirSense 10 AutoSet-- $883
AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her-- $883
AirSense 10 Elite-- $808
AirSense 10 CPAP-- $758

Also a reminder if you need a copy of the Clinician Manual for the above machines, we now have them - simply follow the directions in Section Three of this page:

Given the fact that these new "S10" models come with headed humidifiers integrated into the machine, these price-points seem lower than the previous S9 models, if one needed both the machine and humidifier together. Previously, the S9 AutoSet was priced at $853 retail, plus $159 for a separate heated humidifier, for a total of $1012 for the package. So at $883 for both on these new AirSense 10 AutoSet models, that's an overall price reduction of $129. Even if you purchase an S9 AutoSet with the humidifier now (at the reduced price of $724 + $159 for the humidifier) that's still $883 for the S9 units.

Wow, "pink" is the new "black!"

And the Autoset is cheaper than any of the others?

How odd. But if that holds true in pricing from Resmed to the DME world, and on to Medicare, etc, the tendency to give everyone a "brick" should reverse nicely.

As Vaughn said you very often, usually, have to fight for what you want.
The DME gets paid the same weather he delivers the cheapest out of date brick or the latest greatest equipment available. What do you think they will choose to deliver? If you aren't sure just ask their accountant.

If you don't stand up and fight for what YOU want noone will.

You should also verify the equipment they give you is actually what they say they are giving you. When I got my current ASV machine, my prescription specified the TS option heate hose humidifier. They had my machine set up ready for me with the standard, no heated hose option. I complained. they made excuses, it doesen't exist, they don't have it in stock, pigs can fly.
I stood my ground and left with what I wanted.

Remeber, if it is midnight and a DME tells you it is dark outside, go check yourself.

My puppies do that and they don't even have a DME.

But life is much better now. From now on when a doc writes a prescription for a machine all he needs to say is provide patient the Pink one.

Unfortunately she wrote that it was MY request. I'm sure the DME and the insurance company don't give a hoot about what I think. After talking to the DME, it sounds like they are going to only give me a straight cpap (not the auto that the 560 is) since the doc only prescribed a single pressure. I'm not sure about the S10, but I'd be willing to be an early adopter. I always like playing around with the cutting edge stuff.
Has anyone dealt with Johns Hopkins Pharmaquip? Are they cooperative about supplying the latest and greatest equipment? I know what I want, but I don't want to start off this cpap journey having to fight to get it.

VERY IMPORTANT!!!

Do !!!NOT!!! get screwed with a dataless "brick" CPAP machine that doesn't collect useful therapy data. In particular, avoid any S9 ESCAPE or PRS1 PLUS, SE, or DS160 model.

Many DME's will lie to you and tell you these machines collect data, but all it collects is on/off times. They'll even show you the SD card.

Read the links in my signature line for hints on how to not get screwed by the DME.

Remember, if it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check for yourself.

The Auto machien is always the right choice, but the fully data capable manual machines will still give you pretty good therapy with some extra effort on your part.

Same price but for "Her" version does everything for "Him" does and more
3 machines in one ... more bang for your bucks

The machine comes with standard water tank, cleanable tank (dishwasher safe) and ClimateLine are optional extra

Quick! Someone go buy one of each and test them out to figure out all our questions. Or ship them to me so that you don't have to bother with all the work to test them out. I'll send the data to jedimark to update SleepyHead. I'm really good at testing new stuff and finding the bugs.

I note that the 4her is the same price as the AutoSet model. If I understand correctly, the 4her also does all the modes the AutoSet does, so it's probably a good idea to get the 4her if you have a choice.

BTW, Supplier #1 has a really good set of pictures of the new machines. The picture of the hose fitting into the back of the machine is particularly interesting. I'm not quite sure I understand how the right angle bit works.

Right now, the info is only on the "new machines" page, not in the regular listings. Click on "CPAP machines" then "new machines."

I will not get screwed with a subpar machine. With all the info I've read here and other boards I feel pretty well informed.

I found another DME that dispenses only the S9 Autoset to their patients. I may have the order sent to them and tell them to call me when my Airsense 10 is ready. Today they told me it would be a few weeks before they "certified" on the new machines and couldn't dispense them until they had. Kinda frustrating when I could have ordered one online today and had it by Wednesday.
I've been trying to get this done since May, so I guess a few more weeks won't hurt me too much.
