The AirSense 11 AutoSet with heated humidifier is a New auto adjusting CPAP (APAP) used for the treatment of sleep apnea. This model is the newest generation of the ResMed AirSense platform. This auto-CPAP increases and decreases pressures based on your needs.
The new S11 series is here! Technically referred to as the AirSense 11, this model replaces the previous ResMed 10 series and has been anticipated for a long time taking the S11 name. The AirSense 10 model was so successful and highly rated it was hard to imagine what ResMed could do differently to improve a newer model. Below is a list of the highlights of these changes as well as the manufacturer’s product information description and details.
AirSense 11 Auto is a CPAP machine that automatically adjusts (increases and decreases) pressure settings as determined by an algorithm that detects airway closure. This technology is great for new and old users of therapy. New users benefit from a device that allows them to acclimate to pressure without the feeling of being overwhelmed by higher air settings.
From a design standpoint, the angle of the display screen makes it easier to view or adjust settings via the LCD display while laying in bed with the machine on your nightstand. The built-in humidifier with water chamber tub that sticks out on the side makes it easier to check your water level and refill as opposed to the prior model where a separate casing made you open the device to fill the water chamber or water level mark.
AirSense Series Features
This feature begins the CPAP pressure at a low level and increases the pressure once you fall asleep. This is a great feature for new CPAP users who are adjusting to pressure as they wake up. The device will drop the pressure to allow you to get back to sleep faster without the feeling of an overwhelming high pressure setting and without the need to manually hit the ramp button again.
The built-in heated humidifier is now a standard feature. This model includes the ClimateLineAir heated tubing to take advantage of the full effects of humidification. The heated hose is great for people that are sensitive to dryness from the use of CPAP and promotes humidity throughout the entire hose.
Advanced Event Detection
This device can tell the difference between obstructive sleep apnea events or central apnea events (central sleep apnea is treated with Bi-level therapy or ASV therapy and is most often not treated with standard CPAP pressure). Over time, this CPAP Machine can adjust comfort settings to the severity of your sleep apnea.
Simply put the mask on and start breathing which will initiate the device to turn on automatically and begin therapy. Please note: this setting is not activated when we ship your device
