AirSense/AirCurve 10 Side Cover
The Side Cover from ResMed protects your AirSense 10 when the humidifier is detached from the CPAP device. The cover will shield the AirSense from any potential foreign material that could damage your CPAP machine.
- Durable Materials - Constructed with durability in mind to protect your AirSense
- Lightweight - Does not add significant weight to the AirSense
A side cover is perfect for traveling because it protects the AirSense from potential damage when you pull out the humidifier.
Does the Side Cover fit over the humidifier?
No the side cover is designed to be placed when the humidifier is pulled out of the AirSense 10.
I don't like to use the humidifier function of the machine so this is a nice addition.
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.
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.
