The sheer number of options available can make finding the perfect CPAP machine and accessories difficult.
Whether you’re new to PAP therapy or looking for a replacement for an existing machine, understanding what is available is a critical first step in determining what will work best for your sleep apnea symptoms, use case, and budget.
ResMed is one of the biggest names in PAP machines and accessories across the globe.
In this brand spotlight, we’ll outline some of ResMed’s most popular products and take a brief look at the company, its history, and its service and warranty options to help you determine if ResMed is the right company for you.
ResMed’s PAP Therapy Devices
Over more than 30 years of developing and manufacturing PAP therapy devices and accessories, ResMed has created multiple lines of products to fit specific use cases or needs.
Popular series include:
- The AirSense Lineup: As their flagship APAP and CPAP machine series, newer AirSense devices include cloud connectivity, built-in humidification, app-based tracking and setup, and ramping features to help improve comfort and encourage long-term use.
- The AirMini Lineup: With an emphasis on portability, the AirMini is the smallest portable CPAP available today. But it also proves that you don’t have to sacrifice comfort and convenience to take advantage of APAP therapy or CPAP therapy on the go. It includes waterless humidification, app-based controls, and is compatible with a range of full-sized CPAP masks, CPAP tubing, and other accessories to make use alongside a full-sized CPAP machine at home easier and more affordable.
- The AirCurve and Lumis Lineups: As ResMed’s BiPAP series of devices, the AirCurve provides additional options for treating complex forms of sleep apnea and can act as a non-invasive respirator in some cases. Like their AirSense lineup, these devices include a suite of features, including humidification, ramp-up features, and app-based controls and reporting for greater insight into your apnea symptoms and sleep patterns.

Below, you’ll find some of the top-rated ResMed device models stocked by CPAP Supply.
ResMed AirMini Travel APAP Machine
Measuring just 13.6 by 8.4 by 5.2 cm and weighing only 300g, the ResMed AirMini Travel APAP Machine condenses most of the power and convenience of a full-sized CPAP machine into a device that quite nearly fits in your pocket.
As a CPAP or APAP machine, you can configure it to your exact pressure needs or allow it to adjust to your needs within a set range.
This means it’s ideal for a wide range of apnea severities and ensures reliable access to your critical therapy and quality sleep while away from home.
Settings and reports are accessible through an iOS or Android app to help improve compliance and provide access to your usage data for added peace of mind and convenience.
There are even ramping features and ResMed’s HumidX waterless humidification technology, which uses the moisture in your breath to keep things comfortable without the bulk and filling requirements of a dedicated humidification unit.
Check out the ResMed AirMini Travel APAP Machine product listing for more information if this sounds like a good fit for your needs.
ResMed AirSens 11 Autoset PAP Machine
The ResMed AirSense S11 Autoset PAP Machine is the newest offering from ResMed and combines its latest technology with a streamlined and simple-to-use device.
Like most new PAP devices, the S11 Autoset offers app integration for easy monitoring of your sleep data, a colour touchscreen for easy operation, and a built-in heated humidifier for added comfort during use.
AutoRamp allows you to ease into your treatment each night as you drift off to sleep while expiratory pressure relief (EPR) helps to make breathing easier than traditional CPAP or APAP machines with symmetrical pressure settings.
As an autoset machine, the ResMed AirSense S11 Autoset PAP machine can adjust to your exact pressure needs as you sleep to help provide flexibility, comfort, and effective treatment for apnea symptoms.
We’ll stock this machine very soon. In the meantime, you can consult ResMed’s product documentation for more details.

ResMed AirSense S10 Elite CPAP Machine with HumidAir Humidifier
The AirSense 10 CPAP Machine with HumidAir offers a wealth of comfort and convenience features in a package that won’t stand out too much on a headboard or nightstand.
Users praise the CPAP machine for its easy-to-use colour menus, ramp-up feature, in-depth data logging, built-in humidification, quiet pump, and optional heated tubing upgrade.
SmartStart takes the hassle out of starting and stopping your therapy by sensing when you’re breathing through your mask.
Need to get up in the middle of the night for a drink?
Just remove your mask, and it will pause.
When you return, just slip the mask back on and slip back off to sleep!
Expiratory Pressure Relief (EPR) also helps to improve comfort by reducing the pressure provided when you exhale.
This means less fighting against the pressure and more enjoyment from your CPAP experience.
Whether you’re looking for your first machine or replacing an aging device, this CPAP combines industry-leading quality, the latest features, and a rock-solid warranty to make it an obvious choice for anyone searching for a single-pressure CPAP machine.

ResMed AirCurve S10 Bi-Level VAuto Machine with HumidAir Humidifier
As a bilevel machine, the ResMed AirCurve S10 Bi-Level VAuto Machine with HumidAir Humidifier provides different pressures on the inhale and exhale to help with complex apnea cases or when comorbid conditions such as COPD are present.
The machine can function in APAP, BiPAP, and CPAP modes for added flexibility and includes Vsync leak management technology to adjust pressures when mask leaks reduce pressure automatically.
Other features include Easy-Breathe mode, which works to mimic the natural difference in the typical breathing pattern, ramp up modes for easy adjustment to therapy each session, TiControl to help prevent and address early or delayed changes from inspiration to expiration, and built-in humidification for convenience and comfort.
You can control the entire device using the colour LCD and intuitive controls.
There’s even a light sensor to ensure the screen won’t keep you up once you turn off your bedroom lights.

ResMed CPAP Mask Options
Of course, your PAP machine is only a part of the complete system which helps to deliver your PAP therapy.
High-quality masks, tubing, and other accessories are also critical to ensure comfort, reliable performance, and safety while you sleep.
The best option for you will likely depend on personal preference and the machine you’re using; we won’t outline specific details for all available options here.
However, most masks fall into a handful of categories to give an idea of what to expect with the different models available.
Each category emphasizes different factors to help you pick an option that addresses what’s most important to you.
Their minimalist mask options keep things light and minimize footprint to provide maximum comfort while still delivering a range of pressure.
Popular options include:
- ResMed AirFit N30 Nasal CPAP Mask (Fit Pack)
- ResMed AirMini P10 Mask Pack
- ResMed AirFit F30 Full Face CPAP Mask
If you toss, turn, or worry about kinks and tangles in your line, ResMed’s freedom series of masks connect to your tubing above your head instead of your nose or mouth.
These can prevent rough sleepers from losing or loosening their masks in their sleep and makes sleeping position less critical.
Popular options include:
- ResMed AirFit N30i Nasal CPAP Mask
- ResMed AirFit P30i Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask
- ResMed AirFit F30i Full Face CPAP Mask
If you are worried about fit, ResMed offers a couple of options in their universal fit category designed to be compatible with a wide range of facial structures.
This helps minimize mask leakage and can account for unique facial features that might otherwise cause discomfort with other mask designs.
Popular options include:
Finally, if you have sensitive skin or silicone allergies, or require additional padding, the ultra-soft category includes memory foam cushions for increased comfort and a reliable seal.
Popular options include:
- ResMed AirTouch N20 Nasal CPAP Mask
- ResMed AirTouch F20 Full Face CPAP Mask
You can check out ResMed’s page for a complete list of every mask option available.
ResMed CPAP Tubing Options
ResMed offers a few different options when it comes to tubing for your CPAP machine, and these are only compatible with ResMed masks and machines in most cases.
Some designs feature machine-specific models designed to match a particular model of their line-up. However, most fall into one of three lines of tubing:
- ResMed Universal Tubing: This tubing is exactly what it sounds like. It features generic end adapters and a thicker 22mm tubing designed to work with virtually any machine or mask (even some options from other manufacturers.)
- ResMed SlimLine Tubing: These small-diameter 15mm tubing options help to reduce weight and improve flexibility for added comfort and mobility while sleeping with your mask on. In most cases, these are model specific and will only work with ResMed masks and machines.
- ResMed ClimateLine Tubing: These 15mm tubes offer the weight saving and comfort benefits of the SlimLine tubing but add heating to help prevent rainout and further improve comfort. These are exclusively for use with specific ResMed models, so check that your tubing is compatible with your machine before purchasing.

Based in San Diego, California, you can trace the roots of ResMed back nearly to the start of PAP therapy itself.
Founded by Dr. Peter C. Farrell as ResCare, the company invested in the first CPAP machines in 1989 and has continued to innovate and refine CPAP technology in the years since.
The company was even a major part of the COVID-19 response of 2020, manufacturing hundreds of thousands of ventilators in healthcare facilities, long-term care facilities, senior living communities, and other sensitive environments throughout the pandemic.
Currently, the publicly-traded company is led by Mick Farrell–son of Peter C. Farrell–and has a presence in more than 140 countries worldwide and employs more than 8,000 people as of 2021.
This means that ResMed is a brand you can trust to be there should you need them.
Their equipment is known for its quality and backed by a three-year warranty when purchased new from an authorized CPAP equipment provider.
They’re available online or by phone Monday through Friday.
For the latest contact information, consult their Contact Us page.
However, keep in mind that they can only deal with equipment-specific issues.
Advice on therapy, assistance in adjusting your settings or setup, and other medical-related issues are likely best brought to your primary care provider or CPAP supply provider.
