Our ResMed AirSense 10 Review
Whether you’re looking to upgrade your device or you’re brand new to CPAP, buying a new CPAP machine can be intimidating. Navigating all of the available information can be confusing and choosing a great machine can be the difference between a great night of sleep and feeling like a zombie in the morning.
To help you get the information you need, we’ll be reviewing the most popular CPAP machine on the market, ResMed’s AirSense 10 Autoset.
AirSense 10: What’s Great
One of the best AirSense 10 features is its ability to Auto-Titrate. The AirSense 10 will automatically detect your ideal pressure and adjust accordingly, ensuring you get the exact therapy you need.
Because of this, you won’t need to get another sleep study to determine your pressure if you experience any changes in your lifestyle (weight fluctuations, changing habits, etc). Instead, simply let ResMed’s AirSense 10 work its magic!
2. Expiratory Pressure Relief (EPR)
One of the best additions to the new AirSense 10 CPAP is the Expiratory Pressure Relief feature. Essentially, the AirSense 10 will reduce the pressure upon exhale, making it easier and more comfortable to breathe with your CPAP mask on. This will allow you to get the sleep you deserve and get the most out of your CPAP therapy.
3. Whisper Quiet
One of the biggest complaints about CPAPs (particularly earlier generations) is that they make so much noise, keeping you awake! So, one of the best features of the AirSense 10 is its whisper-quiet motor (just under 27 decibels) which:
- Makes it easier for you to sleep
- Makes it easier for your bed partner to sleep
- Ensures you get higher quality CPAP therapy
4. SmartStart and AutoRamp Features to Help You Fall Asleep
The SmartStart and AutoRamp features are great new additions to the AirSense that will help you fall asleep. The SmartStart feature automatically begins therapy (at a lower pressure) when it senses your first breath into the mask. Once the CPAP machine detects you’re asleep, AutoRamp will slowly increase the pressure to the level you need.
5. Easily Monitor Your Therapy
The last benefit that our customers love about the AirSense 10 is the ease with which it allows you to track and manage your CPAP Therapy. With a new cellular modem and ResMed’s MyAir application, you’ll be able to easily:
- See your sleep reports and monitor your progress
- Have your doctor remotely change your settings
- Maintain compliance with your insurance provider or Medicare
AirSense 10: What’s Not as Great
Overall, there isn’t much not to like about the AirSense 10. The machine is top-notch and jam-packed with features. That being said, a few things to consider:
Since the AirSense does come with many advanced features, it’s no surprise that its price tag is a bit higher than that of other CPAP devices. Easy Breathe does offer payment plan options starting at $299 down to help make this machine more affordable.
2. Not the Best Travel Option
The AirSense 10 is built primarily for home use, so it’s not the most travel friendly option. If you’re looking for a light-weight CPAP to take on the go, this might not be the best fit. If you’d like to find a travel machine instead, check out our Travel CPAP Machine Reviews article.
3. Built in Humidifier
The AirSense 10’s humidifier is built into the machine. So even if you don’t use humidification during your CPAP therapy, the humidifier will have to remain attached to your CPAP.
How Does the AirSense 10 Work?
Overall, the AirSense 10 is very user-friendly. To get started, all you need to do is:
- Connect the power supply and plug it into your AirSense 10.
- Fill the humidifier chamber with water and insert it into your machine.
- Attach the tubing to your machine and mask.
- Press start and enjoy a great night of sleep!
Does Easy Breathe Recommend the AirSense 10?
Definitely! The AirSense 10 is a great CPAP device loved by CPAP users all over. It’s ease of use as well as its advanced comfort settings allow our sleep apnea customers to get the rest they need.
Are There Payment Options for the AirSense 10?
Even though the machine is a bit pricey compared to other machines available, Easy Breathe does have payment plan options for ResMed’s AirSense 10 (starting at $299 down) which help make the machine more affordable! You can also check to see if your new machine could be covered by insurance with our Insurance Checker.
