For those with sleep apnea who use continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, the AirSense 10 DC offers a convenient and portable option to maintain treatment adherence, even while traveling. With its compact, lightweight design and internal battery, this CPAP machine promotes compliance for a better night’s sleep away from home.
Key Features and Benefits
The AirSense 10 DC has several valuable features to enhance portability and ease of use.
Compact Size and Lightweight
Weighing less than two pounds, the AirSense 10 DC is one of the smallest and lightest CPAP machines available. Its slim profile takes up little space in a suitcase or carry-on bag, making it an ideal travel companion—the sleek, modern aesthetic also blends seamlessly into any bedroom decor.
Integrated HumidAir Heated Humidifier
This integrated humidifier adds moisture to the air to reduce dryness. The humid air helps decrease nasal congestion and dry mouth, leading to a more restful sleep. The humidifier’s compact form fits neatly into the device, adding no extra size or weight.
The integrated battery provides over 13 hours of operation per full charge. This allows users to forego finding wall outlets while on the go. The machine will operate all night and recharge via the AC power supply during the day. A handy LCD screen shows the precise runtime remaining before needing a recharge.
Built-In Cellular Connectivity
Users can access therapy data through the AirView patient management system with cellular connectivity. This HIPAA-compliant system also allows remote monitoring by healthcare providers to enhance user support. Data like mask fit, therapy usage, and efficacy help optimize treatment.
Enhanced Convenience While Traveling
From road trips to flights abroad, the AirSense 10 DC enables easy adherence to prescribed CPAP therapy everywhere users go. Thoughtful aspects of its design prioritize convenience and simplicity.
FAA-Approved for Flight
Users never need to worry about having a CPAP machine for flights. The AirSense 10 DC meets Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements for medical devices during all phases of air travel. Patients can rest assured they will have uninterrupted therapy mid-flight.
DC Power Operation
The DC power capability lets the device directly connect to a vehicle’s electrical system. By plugging into a car, boat, or RV power outlet, the CPAP keeps running during long drives without needing battery power. This extends overall runtime considerably.
Travel Bag and Accessories
A specially designed travel bag provides extra protection and storage for the CPAP machine and accessories in transit. Custom compartments neatly organize the device, air tubing, power cords, filters, and masks. Some even have wheels for easy transport through airports.
Automated sensors built into the AirSense 10 DC detect changes in altitude. Accordingly, it self-adjusts air pressure levels to maintain optimal therapy. No matter the elevation users travel to, from sea-level resorts to mountain cabins, their prescribed pressure remains steady.
Customizable Options for Personal Needs
ResMed constructed the AirSense 10 DC as a versatile CPAP catering to diverse users’ needs and preferences. Patients can tailor various settings for the best therapeutic experience possible while traveling.
Ramp Time Options
The ramp feature gradually increases air pressure over an adjustable period at the start of therapy. Users choose their preferred ramp time between off (no ramp) and 5 to 45 minutes. This slowly transitions users into higher pressures, letting them fall asleep more comfortably before reaching the prescribed level.
On-screen menus display in one of eight languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, or Russian. Users toggle between options in the settings menu. This facilitates easy device operation for non-English speakers or those traveling abroad.
Unique heated tubes connect the AirSense 10 DC to the mask, gently warming airflow before it enters the nasal passages. Besides added comfort, the feature prevents condensation inside the tubes, which could disrupt steady airflow. Patients who desire extra warmth while sleeping can enable this.
Mask Type Settings
Since users may switch mask types for travel, the resmed airsense 10 dc accommodates many models. The machine automatically adjusts flow dynamics and algorithms based on whether the detected mask is nasal, full-face, or pillow-style. This optimizes comfort and seal for the chosen interface.
