Old Humidification & Rain-out Problems vs New Auto Humidification & New Heated Tubes
With older humidifiers the only choice you had was to choose a heater plate temperature and remove the entire unit to refill it. Now with new humidifiers, with newer AirSense10 the humidifier is integrated with a more convenient fill option, and you can personalise your humidification and temperature settings for an airflow that is warm, moist and specifically tailored to be comfortable for you.
The Climate Control Auto setting provides the best protection against rain-out (which is an uncomfortable condition in where humidified air cools too quickly and condenses in your mask, forming water droplets that dampen your face). By using these settings in-conjuction with the new ClimateLineAir heated tube, you can minimise dryness, congestion and discomfort that a lot of people with older CPAP equipment routinely experience.
Uncomfortable sleep apnea symptoms can be exacerbated with seasonal changes. Cold, dry air can make it harder to breathe, compounding dryness in your mouth when you wake up in the morning. Also, your nose works overtime to create warm air before it reaches your lungs. A properly working CPAP heated humidifier and tube does all that extra work for you, so you can sleep comfortably.
Old Set Ramp vs New Auto Ramp
In the past, you had to manually choose how long you wanted your Ramp time to last, 5, 10, 15 minutes (up to 45min). The problem with this is you could be asleep before the correct pressure is achieved to hold your airway open, or alternatively it kicks in early, keeping you awake.
The new AutoRamp feature with sleep onset detection delivers a low pressure to help you fall asleep with ease. Once you are asleep, it comfortably ramps up the pressure to ensure the prescribed level of pressure is delivered the moment you need it.
Old Noisy Motor vs New Easy Breathe Motor
Older CPAP machines tend to vibrate, hum and be noisy at about 70 decibels. The new quite Easy Breathe motor in the AirSense 10 CPAP machines makes for a peaceful night’s sleep for both you and your bed partner. It is one of the quietest machines on the market at only 26.6 decibels.
Old Standard CPAP vs New For Her CPAP Machine
One size does not fit all, the AirSense 10 For Her CPAP machine specifically caters to the different needs of women.
Research shows that obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in women is different from OSA in men1-3. Typically, women take longer to fall asleep and have more air flow limitations and more frequent arousals (or brain awakening) during sleep than men.1-3
Women with OSA also tend to have fewer and shorter apneas or hypopneas, as well as a lower apnoea–hypopnea index (AHI).4 And with nearly 40% of newly diagnosed sleep apnoea patients being women,5 it’s important to have a therapy device specifically designed to meet their needs.
The AirSense™ 10 AutoSet for Her contains the first dedicated algorithm designed to treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea in female patients.
Old SD Data Card vs New myAir Wifi Software
You may be familiar with having to take your SD Data Card out of your CPAP machine and post it or bring it into a clinic to be able to see your sleep performance data. In recent years, new and increasingly convenient technology for CPAP data downloads has been developed.
These new transmission methods, such as Wi-Fi, help you and we at CPAP Club can better understand your treatment and allow you to play an active role in monitoring your own treatment progress.
The AirSense 10 CPAP machines are equipped with newest 4G wireless connectivity, so your sleep data can go directly to your CPAP Club support team and to you through the myAir app.
With myAir you can see how well you slept the previous night right from your computer or smartphone.
myAir will even send you tips on how you can improve your sleep and helps keep you engaged and motivated on your sleep therapy journey.
