ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet with HumidAir
The ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet with HumidAir is a whisper-quiet, auto-adjusting device intended for use to treat obstructive sleep apnea. The AirSense 10 AutoSet is an auto CPAP machine. AutoPAP machines “automate” the pressure setting to match your needs at any moment. These machines move the level of pressure up and down as needed by looking for obstructions or pauses in breathing. The AirSense 10 AutoSet monitors breathing patterns and automatically adjusts the airway pressure to ensure ideal sleep apnea therapy at the most comfortable pressure possible.
The AirSense 10 AutoSet is equipped with a state of the art feature set intended to help you fall asleep and stay asleep so that you get a great night’s rest. An integrated humidifier partners with an onboard ClimateControl system to reduce common complications of sleep therapy such as a dry mouth and nose.
An embedded cellular chip allows the AirSense 10 AutoSet to remotely share information about your sleep therapy to your providers as well as to your smartphone. ResMed’s RemoteAccess software lets clinicians update, adjust, or troubleshoot your machine without an in-person visit.

AutoCPAP therapy tailored to your every breath
The AirSense 10 AutoSet uses ResMed’s enhanced airway monitoring algorithm that gets input from every breath you take. The AirSense 10 detects and adjusts for flow limitations, snoring, and apnea events. The AirSense 10 AutoSet migrates the delivered pressure at the airway up and down to ensure you get the sleep settings you need throughout the night. When breathing is less obstructed, it ramps down the pressure. When breathing is more obstructed, it ramps up the pressure.
Sleep onset detection sends a signal to the AirSense 10 AutoSet, telling it when to kick into action. The airway monitoring algorithm also titrates settings gently so that your sleep is not impacted as pressures rise or fall.
User-friendly sleep therapy from start to stop each night
From the time you put on your mask until you take it off, the ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet is working to meet the needs of every breath. An AutoRamp feature at startup gradually increases the delivered airway pressure. The AutoRamp can be configured with a timer or with SmartStart and SmartStop monitoring. When SmartStart and SmartStop are toggled on, the AirSense10 starts the ramp when it detects a breath and turns off pressure delivery when it detects mask removal at the end of therapy.
ResMed’s EasyBreathe feature provides expiratory pressure relief. During inspiration, the delivered pressure stays steady to overcome airway obstruction. When EasyBreathe is turned on, the pressure drops slightly during exhalation to make breathing out feel more natural. Expiratory pressure relief is particularly helpful for sleep apnea patients who need higher airway pressures.
An onboard MaskFit test allows you to confirm your mask is fitting well before drifting off to sleep. If a leak is detected you can adjust and quickly retest.
The HumidAir humidification system is built into the AirSense 10. Using a humidifier to reduce dryness of the mouth or nose has never been simpler. The humidifier slides out for filling with distilled water, then slides into the machine’s casing, safely out of the way. The HumidAir humidifier can be used with or without a heated circuit. Eight levels of humidification are selectable without a heated circuit. When coupled with the ResMed’s ClimateLine Air Heated Tubing, the HumidAir humidifier accesses the AirSense 10’s automated ClimateControl system. The ClimateControl system automatically adjusts temperature and humidification levels, so the user does not have to navigate menus or make setting changes regardless of the room’s temperature. The ClimateLine Air Heated tube also has a 360-degree swivel at the machine to support user movement.
The AirSense 10’s intuitive interface and user-friendly controls pair with a color LCD screen. The screen uses an ambient light sensor to adjusts screen brightness up and down as needed. The sensor dims the screen during nighttime hours so that neither you nor your partner is bothered by the glow during sleep.
An embedded cellular chip delivers information to you and your clinicians about each therapy session. The MyAir smartphone application for both Apple and Android phones provides you with access to summaries about your sleep therapy as well as educational resources.
The AirSense 10’s software captures a wide range of inspiratory flow limitations. Advanced detection for non-obstructive sleep events, such as central apnea, Cheyne Stokes breathing, and respiratory effort arousal events gives your care team ongoing insight into your sleep therapy needs and reduces the need for sleep lab visits.
The RemoteAccess software also functions over the cellular connection. Your care team can view your data, update your machine, adjust settings or troubleshoot problems without a need for you to configure a link to your Wi-Fi or home network. Data can also be stored and shared using an SD memory card(not included).
Set-Up & Maintenance
- Place the ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet on a sturdy surface within easy reach of the power outlet.
- Place the device below head height to prevent it from falling over onto the user.
- Routine maintenance and cleaning are essential contributors to successful sleep therapy and satisfaction.
- Use distilled water in the humidifier to reduce bacterial growth and to prevent mineral deposit build-up.
- The air filter should be changed at least every six months.
- Check the filter regularly for holes or blockages and change sooner than every six months if needed.
- Daily: Humidifier
- Weekly: Device and tubing
Note: NEVER submerged the machine in water
- Wipe the exterior with a dry cloth.
Part cleaning (including humidifier)
- Hand wash in warm water with a mild dish soap.
- Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
- Air dry only away from direct sunlight.
- Hang the tubing with both ends pointing toward the ground while drying.
Do not clean with products containing alcohol, scents, antibacterial agents, antiseptics, bleach, chlorine, or moisturizers.
What is the difference in the three types of tubing that are available for use with the AirSense 10?
The ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet is compatible with standard CPAP tubing as well as ResMed’s ClimateLine tubing and SlimLine tubing. The ClimateLine tubing is a heated wire tube that takes feedback from the AirSense’s climate control system to optimally regulate temperature and humidity. ResMed’s SlimLine tubing is 40% lighter and 20% thinner than the standard CPAP tube, so it’s great for travel and for anyone who wants less drag on the mask.
Can I take the AirSense 10 on a plane?
Yes, the AirSense 10 AutoSet is FAA approved. Put it in airplane mode during air travel. The machine comes with a travel bag and should not be counted against your carry on luggage allotment. Also, do not use the humidifier on board a plane. You will need a power supply.
How does the AirSense 10 AutoSet differ from the AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her?
Both machines are Auto CPAP devices and contain the same feature set. The AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her uses a slightly different algorithm when adjusting pressures. The algorithm factors in physiological differences between men and women. Women, for example, may need less pressure to overcome the same degree of flow obstruction.
