AirSense™ 10 AutoSet™ For Her
- There is evidence to show that obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in women is different from sleep apnoea in men1. Typically, women with sleep apnoea take longer to fall asleep, have more flow limitations, and more frequent arousals than men2.
- They also tend to have a lower apnoea-hypopnea Index (AHI), and fewer and shorter apnoeas than men, with more apnoeas occurring during REM sleep3.
- OSA may have been under-recognised in women but with women representing nearly 40%1 of all newly-diagnosed OSA patients, it’s important to have a therapy device that meets their needs.
Unique treatment for women
The AirSense™ 10 AutoSet™ for Her is based on the AutoSet algorithm and is tailored to the characteristics of OSA in women.
Research has shown that female patients have greater upper airway resistance4 so the AutoSet for Her algorithm is designed to be more sensitive to flow limitation.
ResMed’s unique AutoSet for Her algorithm also provides a Respiratory Effort-Related Arousal (RERA) reporting feature within AirView™ – ResMed’s securely-hosted cloud-based therapy management system. This feature, part of the new algorithm, provides additional clinical insight by ensuring that short events are identified.
- A complete offering: The AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her can be paired with the AirFit™ for Her mask series to provide female patients with a complete therapy solution.
- Built-in ambient light sensor adjusts the brightness of the screen based on the light in the room. So if patients need to get up during the night, the screen’s back light won’t disrupt their bed partners.
- Easy-Breathe motor is whisper-quiet, offering patients and their bed partners a more peaceful night’s sleep.
- Built-in wireless connectivity enables you to monitor the patient, change settings and troubleshoot remotely.
- Consistent humidification throughout the night with the optional integrated HumidAir™ humidifier with advanced HumidAir technology.
