ResMed AirMini Travel CPAP Machine Review
ResMed AirMini travel CPAP machine is has been recently launched at CPAP Victoria. With a dimension of 5.4 x 3.3 x 2.0 inches, and weighing a mere 10.6 oz., ResMed AirMini is the world’s smallest and most portable machine for CPAP therapy. The AirMini has been designed not only for functionality but for portability as well. This mini machine has been patterned after the standard AirSense 10 Auto CPAP machine, offering features such as AutoRamp™, Bluetooth™ connectivity, Expiratory Pressure Relief (EPR), and Smart Start technology. An innovative feature is the waterless humidification for quality, quick and hassle-free therapy anytime, anywhere.
Auto Ramp™ detects when a patient is asleep and then easily and gradually increases the CPAP machine’s pressure in increments of 5 minutes for the next 30 minutes to the prescribed, effective level. The BlueTooth™ facilitates the wireless connection between the AirMini and the AirMini application, which when downloaded allows the patient to remotely operate the AirMini machine using the application. The application also stores and displays a 30-day history of the patient’s AHI statistics and sleep score for easy monitoring of his therapy’s progress.
Expiratory Pressure Relief makes it possible to maintain the lowest pressure possible to reduce pressure during exhalation and prevent apneas during inhalation. Reduced pressure during the exhalation period assures a more comfortable and natural therapy experience. SmartStart™ feature makes it possible to start the therapy by the patient breathing in. There is no need to press the start button.
An added feature is the ActiveAir™ which controls the airflow while the pressure is being increased. Through this feature, the sound level of the CPAP is in a comfortable level. At only 30 decibels, the AirMini is not only the smallest CPAP machine available. It is also the quietest.
The HumidX is another convenient feature of the ResMed AirMini. It is a disposable, waterless, humidifier that is about the diameter of 25 US cents. To improve and maintain comfortable moisture levels without the use of a full humidifier, the AirMini’s pod, located in the mask tubing, is embedded with circular bands of materials. Replacement is required within 30 days of opening the package for optimum efficiency.
