ResMed Elite Manual CPAP Machine
One of the new machines in ResMed's AirSense series is the Elite. The AirSense 10 Elite CPAP is a high performing manual device that comes with all of the features you'd expect in a premier CPAP machine, including expiratory pressure relief, a heated humidifier, a host of advanced detection software, and easy controls. New to this model of the AirSense 10 Elite CPAP is an overhaul of the ramp system and the inclusion of ResMed's novel and proprietary AirView data management system.
AirView Data Management Software
ResMed is now offering users AirView technology, the finest data-sharing program in a CPAP machine to date. Your ResMed Elite CPAP Machine will include a wireless modem that allows you to jump into the Cloud and share all of your sleep apnea therapy data and information with your physician and CPAP performance specialist. You can share your usage history, leak rate data, and mask information statistics without ever needing to leave the comfort of your own home. Your AirSense 10 Elite CPAP machine will save a detailed log of all of your pertinent information for up to 365 days, all without requiring you to lift a finger. For users who don't want to keep a detailed record, simply place your machine in airplane mode, and the device won't track any of your data settings at all. Free set up with the purchase of a machine from RespShop. Please call our customer service department to register your machine. Read more about the Airview Data Service. (Please note: SD card is not included)
Expiratory Pressure Relief
ResMed has carried over expiratory pressure relief (EPR) from their line of S9 models. EPR is an algorithm that works by decreasing the Elite's pressure at the beginning of each breath a user takes, and then subsequently limiting that pressure throughout exhalation. Patients can choose whether they want the pressure to drop by one, two, or three cm H2O, and these pressure changes are made gradually so as to not awaken you while you undergo your therapy. EPR is also capable of detecting when you're in the midst of an unnatural respiration period: if an apnea lasts ten seconds or more, EPR stops and institutes your prescribed pressure setting until your breathing cycle recommences.
ResMed's AirSense Elite boasts several advanced event detection features. Separate and apart from typical therapeutic detection, the Elite is able to tell when you have Cheyne-Stokes respiration and also features central apnea detection.
The AirSense Elite features an intelligently constructed mask fitting detection circuit. When you apply your mask, the Elite is able to tell if you've fit the mask properly or if it requires an adjustment. An icon will pop up on the Elite's screen to notify you whether you've applied the mask correctly or not.
To begin therapy with your Elite CPAP Machine, all you need to do is program your settings and breathe into the mask. Similarly, to stop therapy in the morning, simply take off the mask and the machine will shut down in a matter of seconds.
ResMed overhauled the humidification on their machines with the new HumidAir humidifier. Unlike in past lines, the Elite comes with the humidifier already attached to the machine, which helps make the device smaller and more portable than previous models. The new humidifier features a slightly larger water chamber capable of holding up to 380 ml of water. The humidifier will help reduce some of the negative symptoms of CPAP therapy by propelling warm, moist air into your lungs: this helps to prevent rainout, nasal congestion, and other unpleasant side effects. Patients who do not wish to have humidified air may opt to remove the humidifier from the machine entirely or simply not fill the water chamber.
New Ramp Feature
Long a standard feature in CPAP products, ResMed has re-designed the ramp to help make therapy even more comfortable. In the AirSense 10 Elite, you can still use the ramp to gradually increase pressure over a forty-five-minute interval. For the first time though, you now have the opportunity to delay the onset of the ramp from the beginning of your therapy. For users who dislike the sudden inflow of air pressure when they turn on their CPAP, the new ramp is ideal: simply program the ramp to start anywhere from five to forty-five minutes after you turn on your machine and you can delay the onset of any pressure at all! This will allow you to fall asleep without any incoming pressure, helping you fall asleep naturally.
Easy Controls, Innovative Display
Therapeutic accessibility remains a hallmark of ResMed's machine in the AirSense Elite. The Elite comes with ResMed's most intuitive screen yet: it features a large button, simple navigation, and a bright LCD display. Moreover, the screen is programmed to adjust to the brightness of your room and will remain dim if you need to access your machine during the course of the night. This will help your bed partner stay asleep throughout the night.
Optional ClimateLine Tube
The AirSense Elite comes with a 15 mm diameter SlimLine tube, but customers also have the option of purchasing ResMed's new ClimateLineAir tube as well. The ClimateLineAir is also a slim, 15 mm tube and it's capable of ferrying warm air from the heated humidifier into your lungs. The ClimateLineAir helps you get the most out of your humidifier by keeping the air warm as it reaches your body, which helps protect against rainout, nasal congestion, and

I have had this machine for 2 1/2 years now and have had it in for service twice. Resmed wants $457 to repair since it is 6 months out of warranty. The machine was very quiet when it was new and worked as it should.
I am so sorry to hear this. Repairs can be very expensive, why we try to keep the cost down on new machines. Let me know if I can help at any time. Ellie, Respshop Warranty department.
Bought my AirSense 10 from Respshop.com and it is actually better than the one im using now. This one has lots of features, comes with a built in humidifier which helps with my sore throat and dry mouth is a plus, wireless communication which makes it easier for me to share my usage history and leak rate data and other information to my physician without having to leave the house. It also have the Auto Ramp feature which is great, and good thing with this device it can also detect if I have my mask fitted properly or if it needed an adjustment. Giving it 5 star since I have had a restful night!!!
This has been the best purchased for me ever, this machine has everything that im looking for my sleep apnea therapy. It comes with a built in humidifier which is a big help for my nasal congestion and sore throat. And the good thing about this device is that it includes a wireless modem where I can share data to my care provider. Don't even look like a medical device good for traveling.
Just purchased my Resmed AirSense 10 recently and been in heaven. I am very impressed with this machine, it comes with built in humidifier and wireless modem makes it easy and flexible for me transferring or sharing my sleep apnea data or information to my physician without having to go see her. And if you don't want your machine to keep record you can put your machine on airplane mode and the device wont keep track of your data settings.
This machine can also detect if your mask is fitted properly or if you need to make adjustments which is perfect. Other than that machine is very cute and lightweight easy and convenient for my travels.
nice machine from resmed, Ive been using my S9 elite machine for a long period of time and i really like it, this time i bought the Airsense machine from Respshop and its kind of my S9 Elite a good back up for me since the airsense has a lot of feature compare to S9 Elite like detection of central sleep apneas and Cheyne-Stokes respiration, wireless communications to the provider and get the data from the machine, but you can turn the Airplane mode On to take privacy on your data, it also has the AutoRamp Feature that help me a lot, the machine sense if i already slept then it will automatically ramps up base on my setting, and it works fine for my N10 nasal mask.
i will recommend this machine and this Respshop.com website
