The ResMed AirSense™ 10 AutoSet™ for Her is the first CPAP machine to include a mode that is completely tailored for woman. Research shows that sleep apnea in women is different to sleep apnea in men. So it makes sense that your treatment should be different too. The AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her is part of the first complete sleep therapy solution tailored for woman - combining cutting edge device technology with masks designed to give you a great night's sleep.
This self-adjusting device has an integrated humidifier and optional ClimateLineAir™ heated tube designed to optimize your comfort. The AirSense10 AutoSet for Her includes the standard CPAP and Auto mode also found in the AirSense10 AutoSet machine.
- Unique treatment for women: The AirSense10 AutoSet for Her is based on ResMed's AutoSet algorithm. It responds to female-specific characteristics of sleep apnea and is tailored to meet the special sleep needs of women.
- Intelligent detection: AutoRamp™ with sleep onset detection starts by delivering a low pressure for greater patient comfort. Then, after you fall asleep, it gradually increases the pressure to the prescribed level.
- Just press start and go: Simple and intuitive user interface provides feedback on your therapy every morning and makes it easy for you to change comfort settings.
- Built-in ambient light sensor: The light level of the screen adjusts to the brightness of the room. So if you need to get up during the night, the screen's back light won't disrupt your bed partner.
- Easy-Breathe motor is whisper-quiet, offering you and your bed partner a more peaceful night's sleep.
- The SmartStart™ function begins your sleep apnea therapy as soon as you breathe into your mask. When you remove your mark, it stops automatically after a few seconds.
- Consistent humidification for increased comfort throughout the night with the integrated HumidAir humidifier. Add an optional ClimateLineAir heated tube to experience Climate Control technology, providing the ultimate in comfort.
- Wireless Modem: Includes a 3G wireless modem that will record your data and allow your CPAP provider to download reports for your doctor.
- MyAir: Online support program and app the automatically sends data from your AirSense10 machine to your computer or mobile phone in the form of a sleep score.

I was originally a Dreamstation user, up until I found out it gives you cancer. If Philips would have found a way to get rid of the silly foam structure as sound abatement system, I would have stuck with it, as aside from this tiny (massive) flaw, the product is very well designed, user-centric designed (which is why it won a Red Dot award). I moved to Resmed after doing research on which PAP machines were safe (or more importantly, could be made safe) from degrading sound abatement foam (as it turned out, all PAP manufacturers, sitting quietly in the corner with their undisclosed patient health claims report, use foam). The summary is after a little over a month’s use, I am very happy with the switch, despite the trade-off's cost. Resmed’s advantages are its algorithm and therapy data, which are both up to top tier standards. I have been massively impressed by Resmed’s algorithm, it is actively chess-mastering my apneas and there has been a noticeable improvement (drastic, really) in my sleep stats when compared to the Dreamstation’s performance. Resmed’s algorithm is more agressive than Philips’ at predicting sleep disorders and on me, this worked. The other advantage to a Resmed machine is that they have a wider breadth of therapy data at a much more precise scale, so, when you track your therapy’s performance through software like Oscar/Sleepyhead, you’ll get a much clearer detail than the one you get with the Dreamstation, as the data is recorded at much shorter time intervals (almost nano seconds). The advantages from these two alone have been enough for me to justify the switch. Now, the flaws. With my experience with this machine, as well as with following my dad’s with his machine and Resmed masks, I conclude that Resmed is not a design-centric company. a) The user interface lacks the thoughtful user experience design of the Dreamstation, and by ignoring color contrasts and font selection it makes it harder to use if you wake up during the night and need to make adjustments. b) The worst design flaw in this machine is its humidifier system (water tank and heated tube). I’m not a fluid dynamics engineer, but trust me, compare the Dreamstation's water tank to Resmed’s and you’ll know steam is not understood in the latter. This, when added to design flaws in the heated tube (hard to say if caused by faulty humidity sensors or underperforming tube heating) make the system very rainout prone, as the tube gets cold after a couple of hours of use and steam turns to water drops, even if you run the tube temperature at max. You need a fleece tube cover to insulate the tube and prevent rainout. This was not an issue with the Dreamstation, where I would from time to time, sleep with no heating during the chilly Canadian Winter, never using a tube cover, and there would be no rainout. To me, this costs Resmed one star over a 5-star product review. Having said this, the benefits of a powerhouse algorithm and a product that can be made cancer-free, faaaaaar outweigh the design flaws and the added friction that they cause in the patient’s experience. So, Philips, babe, if you’re reading, get your act together, get rid of materials that will deteriorate and go into people’s airways, smarten your algorithm and you can have me back. If not, while my new bae is no 10, it is definitely a fixer upper ;)
