  • You receive suggestions that should help you to resolve any simple issues that you’re experiencing
  • Your care team sees your Care Check-In responses
  • Your care team has a clearer picture of how you’re getting on and, if necessary, can provide support

Proven algorithms and trusted features

It isn’t always easy to stick with a nightly PAP routine through the ups and downs of everyday life. So it helps if your PAP therapy is comfortable and customised to your needs. AirSense 11 features include:

  • Advanced algorithms, including the ‘for Her’ algorithm which provides a tailored response to the specific needs of women with obstructive sleep apnoea.
  • AutoRamp, which starts your therapy at a low pressure to help you fall asleep more naturally.
  • The EPR feature, which gently reduces the therapy pressure when you exhale so it’s easier for you to breathe out.

Easy access to future care innovations

When you’re enjoying the benefits of PAP therapy, it’s natural to want the latest PAP technology. With AirSense 11, your device can receive remote software upgrades and improvements. Technology features include:

  • Over-the-Air Upgrade, so your AirSense 11 device can receive software upgrades when new features are released
  • Built-in device diagnostics to ensure the noise levels of your device’s motor meet our quality standards.*
