Airsense Noise Levels
#1
Airsense Noise Levels
I'm currently testing an Airsense 10 Auto machine to replace a 4 year old
Dreamstation. It has a lot of nice features but starts producing a higher
pitched noise at times after it's been on for awhile.

I set a phone next to my machine during 'normal' breathing sound operation. Is this pretty normal (youtube sound file uploaded..)?

My old dreamstation is definitely quieter. I was looking to step into a new Airsense 10 Auto machine after seeing a lot of positive reviews, but am debating the switch now.

Mine is so quiet that my wife kept waking me up to make sure I was still breathing.

Your wife checks if you're alive at night? How much are you worth?

RE: Airsense Noise Levels
Sounds like the machine you are testing is a noisy one.  Generally, they should be very quiet.  .  Maybe the unit is a lemon, or it was dropped - but it shouldn't whine or sound like that.  My recommendation is to return that one and evaluate the same model, but a different serial number (different unit).  These sounds usually don't get better with age.  It's also easier to sleep without that sound next to you...

I had the SoClean 2 attached to my ResMed 10 and it produced a high pitched sound. Just an fyi if you do decide to go that route. Returned Smile

This topic just made me realize that I need to get mine exchanged as well. It sounds exactly the same and I thought that this was normal.
