There are many different models of ResMed Airsense 10 machines, not all of which are supported by Sleepyhead/OSCAR. If your machine is indeed an Airsense 10 CPAP, then it is not supported by this software.
Resmed Airsense 10 and Aircurve 10 that are supported:
Airsense 10 Elite
Airsense 10 Autoset
Airsense 10 AutoSet for Her
Aircurve 10 S (Lumis 100 VPAP S)
Aircurve 10 ST (Lumis 150 VPAP ST)
Aircurve 10 ST-A (Lumis 150 VPAP ST-A)
Aircurve 10 VAuto
Aircurve 10 ASV (PaceWave CS)
AirStart (all models)
Airsense 10 CPAP
Have you checked out the Fisher & Paykel Brevida? It has an extremely minimal and lightweight headgear that is very stable and much more adjustable than the P10. I think it's extremely under-rated when compared to the P10.
SoClean and similar units do not actually clean your equipment - they only sanitize.
You will still need to physically wash with mild soap to remove the oils and dirt from the surface of your mask and cushion.
There are other methods besides EEG that correlate physiological changes with sleep stages. For example, this device (https://www.itamar-medical.com/watchpat-home-sleep-testing-made-simple/) comes very close (documented 90% correlation) to matching the data from a full in-lab PSG, including sleep architecture - at a fraction of the cost.
I'm not trying to talk you into a used machine if you're dead-set against it, but as Bonjour notes, it may be a good way to get you started with CPAP. Do a quick Google search for "resmed airsense 10 reprocessing instructions" and you'll see that even in a clinical environment with multiple patients using the same machine, all that is required for full disinfection is and external wipedown with alcohol followed by cleaning of the humidifier tub and air outlet with disinfecting agents. If I were to go down the used equipment path with an unknown provenance, I'd simply replace those two items with brand-new parts (total cost ~$25). Add in a new hose and mask, and you're in business.
Anyway, just food for thought.
After worsening symptoms over the past few years, I recently opted to go the home sleep test route and couldn't be more pleased with the entire process. I had a "failed" sleep study 6-7 years ago (6 months from PCP visit to sleep study report, only to find out the results were "inconclusive" - but they'd let me sign up for another sleep study at a cost of $3500 if I really thought I needed it...). There is a history of severe OSA in my family, and my symptoms even then were almost down the list - yet I used this "inconclusive" study outcome to convince myself it couldn't possibly be sleep apnea.
Fast-forward to the end of 2018 and I finally decided to take action but wasn't sure I wanted to spend the amount I'd need to get things rolling. I have a high-deductible plan ($5k) and would need to reach that level just to get any help from the insurance... plus a 4-month wait for the local sleep clinic. I found an online resource that offered the home sleep test and would connect you with a board-certified neurologist for the rest of the process - all conducted via telemedicine. 10 days from the time I started the process, I had my diagnosis: Severe OSA with an AHI of 58. This particular company does not accept or work with insurance, but given my high annual deductible and the inflated costs that are often present any time insurance is involved, I've saved money. Plus, I'm also in control of my own treatment, can select the supplier I want to use for my equipment and supplies, and I'm not bound by the inane restrictions imposed by most insurance companies.
I did end up signing up for a program that gives me ongoing access to a "sleep coach" who is also an RRT for a one-time cost, and would strongly recommend that additional resource or something similar. She has been very helpful throughout the entire process and has access to assist with remote changes to machine settings if needed. When I began having significant issues with aerophagia, she was able to work with the original doctor to get my prescription revised to a bi-level machine, while the company I purchased the auto-CPAP from initially offered a 100% credit back when I purchased my AirCurve 10 VAUTO.
I recognize this route isn't for everyone, but I heartily endorse it for those who are so inclined!
Fantastic feedback... thanks for listening!
I tend to agree that the design of the survey should probably provide different questions for perhaps three categories of participant:
Those who are not being treated for sleep apnea
Those who have just started treatment for sleep apnea (<1 month)
Those who are currently undergoing treatment for sleep apnea
While there are questions later in some of the surveys that allow you to indicate whether or not you're newly diagnosed with sleep apnea and being treated, many of the preceding questions aren't applicable to someone currently in treatment (particularly with PAP). For example, I received my OSA diagnosis about a month ago and started CPAP therapy about three weeks ago. When the question asks something like "how much do you snore" or "how much do you stop breathing" over a period of the past month, it's hard to answer that question adequately. Before starting therapy? Or after? Or some combination of both since it spans the period in question?
I suspect that many who join the community here are either newly diagnosed or have just started therapy, so designing the surveys to accommodate these new participants would seem to have value.
