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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
