Benefits of Using ResMed AirSense 10 CPAP Machine
With ResMed’s integrated heated humidification system, users will experience improved comfort during CPAP therapy. Users have the ability to adjust the humidification to a level of their choosing to optimize comfort. The addition of the ClimateLine heated tubing unlocks the potential of the machine’s climate control setting—allowing users to control the temperature of the air pressure they receive.
The ResMed AirSense 10 CPAP is also virtually quiet with an operating volume of 27 dBA. This means minimal or no interruptions to your sleep. With a weight of only 2.75 lbs, the AirSense 10 is perfect for both at-home and on-the-go use.
Disadvantages of Using ResMed AirSense 10 CPAP Machine
Some users have cited the built-in humidifier and removable water chamber as a disadvantage to the ResMed AirSense 10, as it adds to the machine’s footprint. If you do not currently use a humidifier with your CPAP machine and are looking at the AirSense 10, learning how to adjust or turn off the humidifier settings will be key. Additionally, a side plate cover can be purchased to replace the water chamber which further reduces the size of the machine.
