1 x AirSense/AirCurve 10 Side Cover in the selected color
Subject: Brilliant solution for travel!
I have the ResMed Air 10 Curve, which is a bi-level machine for those of us with central sleep apnea. Unfortunately, no one seems to make a small, travel size machine. BUT! ResMed makes this side cover, which fits into the area where the water reservoir would go. It blocks all the air from coming out, and makes the machine about 50% smaller than when the water reservoir is in. So now, I can add the machine to my carry-on bag for future travel! (Plus I won't need to search out boiled water every evening!)
(Medicare doesn't consider this item "a necessity," so it's an out-of-pocket expense. But it's only about $15, so that isn't bad. Especially when a travel machine runs about $900!)
If you don't need or use the humidifier attachment, this side cover is a total must. With the humidifier, the CPAP machine makes a little blowing noise because of the thin plastic hollow design of the water/air chamber. With this new side cover, the old air ports get plugged up by thicker and more solid tubing (the white portion in the picture). My CPAP machine with this new side cover literally no longer makes any noise whatsoever. The white tubing portion acts like a muffler keeping the unit very quiet. I also like how it makes the unit less wide and more convenient for travel.
I bought one for me so that it wouldn't damage the unit whenever I traveled. When I originally brought this up to my local CPAP supplier, they told me that ResMed said it wasn't 'necessary' and therefore wouldn't keep them in stock or even order one for me. Believing that I was correct, I came here to order one and, as usual, I was correct in my assessment.
It's just good stewardship to keep our equipment in good order.
If you travel, it's a good investment.
I do a lot of traveling, and having this side cover is kinda neat. As soon as I attached the side cover to my Airsense 10 CPAP, it automatically turns off the humidifier - same thing would happen if I took out the humidifier, but the side cover makes the machine complete.
Good customer service. Thanks for answering all of my questions.

The side cover for the ResMed AirSense is a nice alternative from the humidifier, during humid weather conditions. I've had several weeks where I used the side cover instead, and found it easy to insert, remove and clean.
Does exactly what it's supposed to, an inexpesive 'placeholder' if the humidifier bin breaks or leaks until you can fix it, or if you want it a little small to carry with you
I think everyone who owns a ResMed Airsense/AirCurve/AirStart 10 absolutely needs this side cover for travel without the water reservoir.
I love my new CPAP and this part is wonderful when you don't want to use the humidifier.
I don't like to use the humidifier function of the machine so this is a nice addition.

A great addition to have so stuff does not get in machine when not using humidifier
