Resmed AirSense 10 Auto VS. Resmed AirSense 10 Auto For Her. What are the key difference?
When it comes to choosing the right CPAP machine for yourself, it is important to remember that both ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet and ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her algorithms are very similar. The ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet For Her, also has the regular Auto mode, and the CPAP fixed pressure mode as well.
Once out of the box, you can tell the ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet For Her by the white colour flower faceplate vs. the ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet is a shiny black faceplate. ResMed also gives you the option of buying a silver or shiny black faceplate, if the white face plate with flowers bothers you. The ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her has a more sensitive flow algorithm that picks up Hypopneas/flow limitation better. Often females have more Hypopneas and flow limitation than Males. As women go through menopause or any women with hormonal imbalances will experience more flow limitation events throughout the night. A gender-specific algorithm has been created by ResMed to help out with these pressure swings. The pioneering new algorithm used in the AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her works by increasing sensitivity to flow limitation and optimizing the response to these events. By responding to each flow-limited breath, the algorithm helps to provide comfortable therapy for women and does not let the pressure increase dramatically during detection of these hypopneas/flow-limitation events.
Any patients with sensitive airways or suffering from Asthma, or COPD, Emphysema would also benefit from using the ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her algorithm.
We have had great responses, and very positive feedback from our customers about how comfortable, quiet and easy, it is to travel with both the ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet and ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her.
All CPAP masks, whether it is the ResMed P10 or ResMed P10 for Her, the N20 nasal masks, or the F20 full face masks, they are all fully compatible with both units. Even all masks of the other manufacturers are all compatible as well. Both the heated hose, ClimatlineAir, or non-heated hose such as the ResMed slimline tubing will fit on both CPAP machines.
Both AutoSet machines’s also come with data capabilities to fully record detailed sleep quality reports. These reports can be viewed and generated through ResMed AirView, or by download from the SD card.
Remember it is important to bring your CPAP machine every 6 months for a check-up. Like with all medical devices, it is important to make sure that the motor is delivering the right pressures. The motor function can be checked easily by your CPAP vendor or home health care provider with a pressure manometer. Routine check-ups, cleaning, filter changes, and adjustments of your CPAP range of pressures are a vital and key component to sleeping better on CPAP machine. Even with Auto CPAPs, it is extremely important that your CPAP pressure range constantly gets adjusted to match any weight, gain/loss and overall breathing condition changes.
