The flagship in the new ResMed AirSense 11 range is the ResMed AirSense 11 AutoSet.
ResMed AirSense 11 AutoSet is ResMed’s premium CPAP machine. It takes the best of its predecessor, ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet and has refined it into a smaller package with even more technology.
Smaller and Lighter
ResMed AirSense 11 AutoSet is 94.5mm x 259.4 mm x 138.5 mm (H x W x D) and weighs 1.13 kg. This makes it 24% smaller and 10% lighter than the ResMed AirSense 10.
ResMed’s Proven “AutoSet” and “AutoSet for Her” Therapy Modes Now in One Device
ResMed AirSense 11 AutoSet not only gives users the flexibility of using their device in either fixed pressure or automatic CPAP mode, but also the choice of “AutoSet” or “AutoSet for Her” therapy mode, all in one device.
Both modes adjust pressure for apneas, hypopneas and flow limitations. However, there are some differences between men and women, which these 2 modes seek to address:
Flow Limitation Sensitivity:
AutoSet for Her: as women tend to experience hypopneas (partial closure of the airway) more than apneas (complete closure of the airway), the AutoSet for Her algorithm is more sensitive to these partial closures, otherwise known as flow limitations.
AutoSet: the standard algorithm also responds to flow limitations, however, not to the same level of sensitivity as the AutoSet for Her.
AutoSet for Her: employs a gentler and more gradual increase in airflow, which women tend to find this more comfortable.
AutoSet: by contrast, reacts more aggressively, employing a more rapid rise in airflow.
Previously, these modes were built into 2 separate ResMed AirSense 10 devices – ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet and ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her. Now, the ResMed AirSense 11 AutoSet device contains both modes in the one device.
It is important to note that whilst the AutoSet for Her algorithm was designed specifically with women in mind, it can be just as effective for some males too. Conversely, some women prefer the standard AutoSet algorithm. Choosing between the two therapy modes is generally a matter of individual comfort and preference, which should be made in consultation with your doctor or CPAP Consultant.
Greater Comfort with Expiratory Pressure Relief and Sleep Onset Detection
ResMed AirSense 11 AutoSet’s sleep onset detection, makes going to sleep more comfortable, by delivering low airflow pressure initially, followed by a gradual increase in pressure over time, and as the user drifts off to sleep.
Another comfort feature is Expiratory Pressure Relief (EPR). This reduces the pressure when the user exhales, and then resumes regular airflow when inhaling.
Integrated Heated Humidifier and Heated Tube
Reduce dry mouth with ResMed AirSense 11 AutoSet’s easy-to-clean humidifier and removable tub. Operated via a touchscreen display, humidification can be controlled manually or automatically with the Climate Control feature.
For colder nights, the heated tube, makes for a more comfortable night’s sleep with warmer air to breathe, and eliminating rainout (i.e. condensation), which can occur when heated air cools in a user’s tubing due to a colder room, resulting in water droplets dripping on the user’s face, or bouncing off the tubing wall, making a “knocking” type sound.
Modern Design with Easy Navigation
ResMed AirSense 11 AutoSet was designed to be modern and more stylish to help make CPAP therapy less daunting in particular for new users.
ResMed’s design team also sought to make navigation easier with a much larger start/stop button and colour touchscreen.
Integrated cellular Connectivity
ResMed AirSense 11 AutoSet transfers user’s sleep data securely to the cloud for access in AirView and myAir.
ResMed’s myAir app allows users to track their CPAP therapy.
Exclusive to AirSense 11 users, there are now new enhanced myAir features: Personal Therapy Assistant and Care Check-in. These features are designed to assist users with the setting up of their device, as well as providing voice-guided tips on how best to optimize their CPAP therapy.
Users will benefit from over-the-air software updates as well as comfort and clinical features direct to your ResMed AirSense 11 AutoSet from time to time.
CPAP is used for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea treatment. ALWAYS FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS FOR USE. When considering whether CPAP treatment is right for you, speak to your doctor.
