ResMed® AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her contains the first dedicated algorithm designed to treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea in female patients. Typically, women take longer to fall asleep and have more flow limitations and more frequent arousals during sleep than men.1,2,3 Women with OSA also tend to have fewer and shorter apneas or hypopneas, as well as a lower apnea–hypopnea index (AHI).4 And with nearly 40% of newly diagnosed sleep apnea patients being women,5 it’s important to have a therapy device specifically designed to meet their needs.
A gender-specific algorithm
The pioneering new algorithm used in the ResMed® AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her works by increasing sensitivity to flow limitation and optimizing the response to these events. By responding to each flow-limited breath, the algorithm helps provide comfortable therapy for women.
AutoRamp, ResMed’s new AutoRamp feature with sleep onset detection delivers a low pressure to help patients fall asleep with ease. Once the patient is asleep, it comfortably ramps up the pressure to ensure the prescribed level is delivered the moment it is needed.
Other features Advanced event detection.
The ResMed® AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her differentiates between obstructive and central apneas and can also detect Cheyne-Stokes respiration, so you can be confident that your patients are always receiving appropriate therapy and pressure. Using AirView, ResMed’s cloud-based patient management system, you can access nightly therapy data, troubleshoot remotely (using the remote assist feature) and change device settings remotely.
The user-friendly controls, intuitive interface and color LCD screen make it simple to navigate menus and customize comfort settings. AutoRamp™ with sleep onset detection works by delivering a low pressure to help patients fall asleep with ease. Once it detects they’re asleep, it comfortably ramps up the pressure to ensure the prescribed level is delivered the moment they need it. The quiet Easy-Breathe motor makes for a peaceful environment for the patient and their bed partner. Built-in ambient light sensor adjusts the brightness of the screen based on the light in the room and turns off automatically.
Pulse oximetry monitoring is available.
Integrated humidification simplifies setting up the device and makes therapy easier for your patients.
Respiratory Effort-Related Arousal (RERA) reporting is a feature within the ResMed® AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her that logs and stores effort-related sleep disturbances.
The therapy device detects indications of arousals, which are reported through AirView.
As part of the new ResMed® AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her algorithm, the feature provides additional clinical insight by identifying indications of arousals which are often related to short events.
