ResMed elected to target market the for Her model machine.
Yes, sometimes women's needs are different than a man's needs but not always. I am female...I can do quite well on the regular auto adjusting algorithm and did so for years and years before ResMed came out with the special auto adjusting algorithm.
And there's no monopoly with only females benefiting from the special algorithm either. A guy could just as easily have the same sort of needs.
The AirCurve 10 AutoSet has 2 modes of operation...cpap mode and the apap/auto adjusting mode.
To get it in Canada is a PITA with lots of hurdles and costs more money.
The AirCurve 10 AutoSet for Her has 3 modes of operation.
The same 2 that the regular autoset has (cpap and apap) plus an additional 3rd apap mode with a different algorithm for the auto adjusting response. In Ontario for some reason this machine is listed as a cpap machine and is a covered machine without the hurdles and without the extra cost.
It's a no brainer to get it....it's like 3 machines in one.
Now you may or may not need or want that special for Her algorithm but it hurts nothing to have it available.
Always better to have something and not need it than to need it and not have it.
