What are the benefits of using ResMed’s AutoSet™ for your sleep apnea? How exactly does it work? Find the answers to these and other AutoSet FAQs below.
A. AutoSet devices adjust pressure on a breath-by-breath basis to suit your personal breathing needs throughout the night. As a result, you receive the minimum pressure required for effective therapy, and these lower average pressures improve comfort.
A. After you fall asleep and your pressure needs begin to vary, your AutoSet device responds to three separate parameters, based on the degree of airway blockage caused by your sleep apnea: inspiratory flow limitation, snore, and apnea. AutoSet devices automatically increase pressure as airway blockage starts to occur in order to minimize the chances of it developing into apneas.
A. AutoSet devices respond to hypopnea events when they’re associated with airway blockage. Hypopneas that are not associated with airway blockage cannot be treated with increased pressure, and as such an AutoSet device pressure will not increase in these cases. Talk to your doctor or sleep specialist about which devices can treat hypopnea events.
A. AutoSet devices assess breathing adjust pressure according to a five-breath average.
A. Actually, the opposite is true. AutoSet technology provides the greatest benefits for people on 10 cm H2O or more.
A. Our AutoSet algorithm has been clinically validated in numerous third-party tests and peer-reviewed journals for more than a decade, and has been continually developed and enhanced during that time.
