General Overview

Quick Summary

One of the most respected names in the sleep disorder therapies market, ResMed has been been developing CPAP machines, masks, and ventilators since 1989.  In addition to treating sleep disorders through innovative technologies, ResMed strives to reduce its environmental impact through efforts like minimizing pollution and unnecessary waste. The company’s efforts have earned it accolades such as a rank among Citigroup’s World’s Top 50 Companies and an A- rating from the BBB.

Today, ResMed focuses its efforts on developing and enhancing products designed to manage obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and other respiratory disorders. To combat OSA, the company currently offers three models of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines: the AirSense 10 Elite, the AirStart 10 CPAP, and the AirMini.

Which ResMed CPAP Machine Will Work Best for Me?

The most popular and possibly the most practical ResMed devices are the ResMed AirSense 10 Elite and ResMed AirSence AutoSet, with their easy-to-use interface and useful features like climate control and auto-off and -on. We recommend going with the latter (autoset) if you tend to have changing pressure needs throughout the year, your breathing changes throughout the night, or if you’re prone to semi-frequent illness or congestion. Rather than having to change the pressure yourself to accommodate these needs, the AutoSet models will do this for you. Other attractive features of both models include its advanced AutoRamp, which starts you off with a gentler, low pressure before increasing pressure after it detects you’ve fallen asleep.

For sleep apnea sufferers who are constantly on the go, the ResMed AirMini is a natural choice. With its advanced features and ultra-light weight and tiny size, it’s one of the best travel CPAP machine options on the market. However, you should keep in mind that the ResMed AirMini is designed to supplement a full-size CPAP machine, not replace it. The manufacturers advise reserving ResMed AirMini for trips while relying on a standard CPAP device for regular home use.
