Exceptional Automated Technology

The ResMed AirMini has an auto start and pressure relief features which allows the users to make a smooth adjustment to CPAP pressure in increments.

But I just wish...

The exhalation air noise can be quite annoying at times and thus, needs to be improved. Also, when using a nasal pillow mask and setting it down from your nose mask, you will notice the sound of your exhalation. The noise can be pretty annoying and can cause sleep interruption in the middle of your restful slumber.

The ResMed AirMini is definitely one of the on the market, but its motors require a minor tweak. It needs to function with less noise and more power. Furthermore, this device does not include an additional external battery, which can be quite inconvenient for travelers who find it troublesome to charge their machines from time to time. But of course, purchasing a back-up battery separately is an option. If you think this machine can provide all your needs, and if it fits your budget, perhaps it’s something worth consider. After all, you won’t find many CPAP machines out there as remarkable as this.
