G'day Snoopygirl, welcome to Apnea Board.

There is a review thread on the Autoset here: http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...10-AutoSet I think it includes some discussion of the "for her" version. While the for her is marketed at women, it has some features which a lot of our male members also find helpful.

Snoopygirl, have you taken a look at your data to investigate why your're not sleeping well? Are you using the EPR feature? The Airsense 10 Autoset for Her is the same machine you already have, but includes an additional pressure algorithm that more gently changes pressure. I don't know how the pressure is different but, the manufacturer says this:

Quote:The AirSense™ 10 AutoSet™ for Her contains the first dedicated algorithm designed to treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea in female patients. Typically, women take longer to fall asleep and have more flow limitations and more frequent arousals during sleep than men.1,2,3 Women with OSA also tend to have fewer and shorter apneas or hypopneas, as well as a lower apnea–hypopnea index (AHI).4 And with nearly 40% of newly diagnosed sleep apnea patients being women,5 it’s important to have a therapy device specifically designed to meet their needs.

Start using the Sleepyhead software linked at the top of the forum, and consider posting data and letting this group help you make your machine work better for you. Welcome, and good luck.

I occasionally have air coming out of my lacrimal glands (tear ducts). I asked my ophthalmologist whether it would cause any eye problems. He said not unless it dried your eyes out and he gave me a sample of an eye drop gel to use if it started drying my eyes out. I do not have any other eye problems other than presbyopia and cataracts.

Best Regards,
