Have you ever thought about the CPAP machines behind the vital PAP Therapy?
One of the most vital pieces of sleep apnea treatment is the actual CPAP or BiPAP machine, so let’s take a deeper look into AirSense 10 Elite.
As part of ResMed line of AirSense 10 CPAPs, full connectivity and ability to monitor a patient’s progress wirelessly are fully present in the AirSense 10 Elite. One of the defining aspects of ResMed’s AirSense 10 Elite is the ability to recognize central sleep apnea and Cheyne-Stokes respiration in patients. Even if a patient doesn’t have any sort of central sleep apnea symptoms, this machine has full capabilities in line with the regular ResMed Airsense 10 CPAP machine to ease patients into a successful sleep apnea therapy.
As the night begins, a patient can expect to be lulled into restful sleep through the AirSense 10’s many features.
[wp-svg-icons icon=”checkmark-2″ wrap=”span”] Imagine starting your night off with the AutoRamp with Sleep Onset Detection feature to have initial low air pressure delivery with gradually increasing pressure for an easy transition for a night of quality slumber.
[wp-svg-icons icon=”checkmark-2″ wrap=”span”] Leading into higher pressures, Expiratory Pressure Relief feature (EPR – decreases a patient’s pressure during exhalation on breath-by-breath basis to promote comfort, therapy compliance and smoother breathing) kicks in to give more leeway to a patient’s personal breathing pattern as exhalation occurs.
[wp-svg-icons icon=”checkmark-2″ wrap=”i”] Throughout all of these breathing cycles, patients may worry getting an awful dry mouth. That concern is alleviated by the presence of a humidifier integrated into the system for more streamlined temperature and humidity settings. The automatic climate control and temperature settings can be enabled and configured for each particular patient’s preferences to get optimal temperature control.

With SmartStart, this feature enables automatic device power-on by breathing into a mask and then automatic shut-off when the mask is removed.
In addition to excellent features, the components that make up the AirSense 10 Elite are also assembled to create a soothing sleep environment for anyone undergoing sleep apnea treatment.

[wp-svg-icons icon=”signup” wrap=”span”] Externally, there is an ambient light sensor for easier brightness adjustment with an angled LCD screen for easy bedside viewing by the patient at any time of night.
