ResMed sleep therapy devices: innovation and technology

At ResMed, we focus on continuous innovation to make it easier than ever before for your patients to get a good night’s sleep. Our CPAP masks, devices and technology are designed to work seamlessly together to deliver comfortable, effective therapy, while our digital health systems help you to monitor therapy and provide the support your patients need.

Design and aesthetics

Simplifying sleep

Our ResMed Air10™ devices were designed to be user friendly and enhance a peaceful sleep environment. Designed to discreetly fit into a patient’s lifestyle with a streamlined design and simplified navigation, Air10 aesthetic features include:

  • A sleek design
  • An intuitive interface and color LCD screen that make it simple to navigate
  • Built-in ambient light sensors that automatically adjust the screen brightness based on the light in the room

Climate Control

An intelligent humidification solution  

Humidification can make a positive difference in your patients’ therapy experience by increasing their comfort and helping to prevent dry nose, throat and mouth.

ResMed Air10 devices include Climate Control, an intelligent system that controls the ResMed HumidAirTM heated humidifier and ClimateLineAir™ heated tubing to deliver a consistent, comfortable temperature and humidity level throughout therapy.

Climate control features include:

  • A Climate Control Auto setting option, where both temperature and humidity levels are pre-set to deliver optimal comfort. Patients can receive comfortable therapy by attaching the ClimateLineAir heated tube and pressing the Start button with no settings or menus to navigate.
  • A Climate Control Manual setting that lets patients adjust the temperature and humidity to what’s comfortable for them. In Climate Control Manual mode, the tube temperature and humidity level can be set independently.
  • The ClimateLineAir heated tube is our most advanced heated tubing with a built-in temperature sensor to keep the temperature at the preferred settings, regardless of changes in the room temperature or humidity. ClimateLineAir tubing is compatible with ResMed AirSense™ 10 and AirCurve™ 10 devices.

Clinically proven AutoSet algorithm

Automatic adjustments for comfortable therapy throughout the night

ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet™ is an APAP device featuring our renowned AutoSet algorithm, one of the most clinically published algorithms in the field of sleep-disordered breathing. AutoSet works by:

  • Automatically adjusting to each patient’s therapy pressure as their needs change
  • Adjusting pressure whenever it’s needed – whether that’s hourly, nightly or even season to season
  • Delivering the patient’s lowest, ideal therapy pressure for comfortable, yet effective therapy

In addition, our AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her device features a tailored version of the algorithm set to meet the unique characteristics of women with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). AutoSet for her works by increasing sensitivity to flow limitations and optimizing the response to these events. By responding to each flow limitation, the algorithm helps provide comfortable therapy.

Central sleep apnea (CSA) detection

ResMed Air Sense 10 AutoSet and AirSense 10 Elite devices also include CSA detection. This advanced technology uses the forced oscillation technique (FOT) to determine whether a patient’s airway is open during an apnea. When an apnea is detected, small oscillations in pressure (1 cm H20 peak-to-peak at 4Hz) are added to the device pressure. If flow is detected, the airway is open and the apnea is from CSA. If no flow is detected, the airway is closed from an obstruction. The device responds by either increasing pressure for an obstructive apnea or maintaining current pressure and recording the event for the patient’s apnea–hypopnea index (AHI) report.

CSA detection is available in the AirSense 10 AutoSet, AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her and the AirSense 10 Elite devices.

 

SlimLine tube

Smaller, slimmer, sleeker

Convenient, comfortable and user-friendly, ResMed SlimLine™ tubes are 40% lighter and 20% thinner and takes up 35% less space than standard tubes.*

  • Flexible and travel-friendly for freedom and comfort
  • The slim, flexible design makes it easier to move around in bed without pulling on the mask and breaking the seal
  • Both ends of the SlimLine tube are designed to be easier to grip, and slot into the mask and device without any fuss
