Featured Product: The AirFit 20 Mask Series

ResMed’s newest line of masks is finally here!  The AirFit 20 mask series is ResMed’s most comfortable series yet, featuring quite a few key features to keep you sleeping soundly throughout the night.  Let’s start with the basics.  This mask comes with all of the basics that you’ve come to know and love about the ResMed series.  The AirFit 20 series is meant to allow easy disconnection from your therapy for brief pauses.  A quick release elbow allows you to remove your tubing from your mask if you need to get up momentarily, while the magnetic quick release headgear straps allow you to take your mask off completely to get that glass of water.  One of our favorite features of the mask is the flexible mask frame.  It bends and flexes with your unique facial contours to ensure there are none of those uncomfortable tugs or pressure points that could wake you up, and they’ve added extra padding on the frame to ensure maximum comfort.

 

Already we can see that the AirFit 20 series was built for comfort!  One of the added features is the development of an InfinitySeal cushion.  This cushion was designed to be as soft as possible, resting around your nose for the nasal mask, or around your nose and mouth if you decide on the full face option.  This cushion was designed to create a firm seal without suctioning on too tight, allowing you to rest more comfortably.  Both the nasal and full face option are great; they allow a versatility in sleeping position that is hard to come by if you tend to toss and turn during the night.  There is even a stylish option in the AirFit ‘For Her’ mask.  This mask features a trendy pink mask frame set, perfect for the woman in your life.  It can certainly help you take your sense of personal style with you even while resting!  Whichever you choose, the AirFit 20 series offers one of the most low profile designs available on the market.  If you find yourself feeling claustrophobic in some of the masks you’ve tried, this series could be a good option as it sits a bit lower on the face and below the eyes.  Whatever you decide, the AirFit 20 series is sure to be making a big splash in the CPAP market!

Featured: ResMed AirStart 10 CPAP Machine

ResMed has launched it’s newest addition to its AirSense line over the Labor Day weekend – the AirStart 10 CPAP machine.  This machine boasts all of the comfort and design prowess that the AirSense line has come to be known for, with a number of great features that make this machine a great choice for virtually any user.

Heated Humidifier

The HumidAir Heated Humidification system is integrated into the AirStart machine.  Heated humidifiers actually heat the water in your humidifier chamber, allowing it to vaporize and be picked up more easily when your therapy air streams over it.  This type of humidification is great for users living in dry climates or those who suffer long, cold winters.  Heated humidifiers offer added comfort in the CPAP world.

Simplified Design

The AirStart 10 prides itself on being a more intuitive machine with fewer unnecessary bells and whistles than some counterparts.  It has a small footprint, making it a great travel machine option, and a less complicated set up.  Fewer complicated menus make this machine more streamlined in design and in use, simplifying your therapy and letting you get right down to use without having to worry.

EPR

Expiratory pressure relief is a feature that really looks to add comfort to the AirStart 10.  This is a simpler version of what BiPAP and APAP machines do; it allows a lower pressure to exist during exhalation, making the machine easier and more natural feeling.  It can also help eliminate any disturbances your machine can cause as some users are woken up by the high exhalation pressures some CPAP machines have.

AirView Technology

Many machines now allow you to track your therapy data and the AirStart 10 is no exception.  Using an SD card that fits into your machine, your therapy data can be recorded and sent to ResMed’s AirView system.  This allows you and your doctor to be able to pull up the data for review and see if your prescribed pressure is working properly or if adjustments are needed.

 

Overall, the AirStart 10 is designed with the user in mind.  It was built with a number of desired features that nearly all CPAP users are looking for, and at a fraction of the cost of auto machines it’s not hard to see why this machine has been so long awaited.  Check it out on our website here.

Final Thoughts

Of course, the above outline is not a complete guide to the AirStart 10, but hopefully you now have a better idea of if it will work for you. Of course, it is best to speak with your doctor to determine what is best for your individual needs.
