FAA Compliance Letter: To view the FAA compliance letter for the AirStart™ 10 Auto CPAP with HumidAir™ Heated Humidifier, click here.
Do not fill the water chamber past the max fill line as this could result in water entering and damaging the device. Allow the water chamber to cool for ten minutes after use before handling as it could be too hot to the touch. The water chamber should be washed weekly using warm water and a mild detergent, rinsed well, and allowed to dry out of direct sunlight. The standard water chamber included is not dishwasher safe and should only be hand washed. To view a dishwasher safe chamber, see the Dishwasher Safe Water Chamber for AirStart™ 10 Humidair™ Heated Humidifier.
Purchase the Side Cover for AirSense™ 10, AirStart™ 10, and AirCurve™ 10 Machines separately in order to enclose the machine opening when the water chamber has been removed. This is only required if the integrated heated humidifier is not being used.
How to Determine if the Water Chamber is Dishwasher Safe?
AirStart™ 10, AirSense™ 10, and AirCurve™ 10 machines denote the water chamber model with an "S" or "C" label. Look directly above the maximum fill line located on the side of the chamber to find the word HumidAir™ and the corresponding letter embossed into the tank.
- If the water chamber is dishwasher safe, the chamber will appear as HumidAir C, which represents a cleanable tank.
- If the water chamber is the standard model, the chamber will appear as HumidAir S, which represents a standard tank.
A standard (19mm) hose is included with the purchase of the AirStart™ 10 CPAP machine. The hose is found in the interior, zipped compartment of the travel bag. The zippered nook is located at the point where the cover meets the bottom of the travel bag at the back of the machine compartments. The standard 19mm hose has a 22mm end that connects to the machine. For replacements, a customer should search for a 19mm replacement hose as 19mm is considered the diameter if the hose.
SD Card Location
The included SD card comes installed in the machine ready to use. While looking at the machine with the display facing forward, the SD card is located under the upper flap with the blue "SD" logo on the left side of the machine.

Battery Power for AirStart™ 10 Auto CPAP Machine
The following information is applicable for the ResMed AirStart™ 10 Auto CPAP Machine with or without the humidifier turned on. Keep in mind that using the heated humidifier will reduce the run time of a battery by approximately half.
- DC capable: Use the DC Converter 24V 90W For AirStart™ 10, AirSense™ 10, and AirCurve™ 10 Machines to operate the AirSense™ 10 CPAP from a DC power source (battery).
- ResMed Power Station II Battery Kit for AirStart™ 10, AirSense™ 10, & AirCurve™ 10 CPAP Machines: Use this complete kit including: the lithium-ion battery, the compatible DC cable, and the PSU adapter to power the AirStart™ 10 APAP machine when AC power is not available.
- AirStart™ 10, AirSense™ 10, and AirCurve™ 10 Machine 24V Power Converter for Freedom Travel Battery Pack: This converter is necessary for using the Freedom Travel Battery Pack for CPAP machines with the AirStart™ 10 Auto CPAP.
The DC Converter 24V 90W For AirStart™ 10, AirSense™ 10, and AirCurve™ 10 Machines is required to use the following machines with DC power directly from a battery:
- AirStart™ 10 CPAP Machine with HumidAir™ Heated Humidifier

This battery kit includes a fast-charging lithium ion battery designed to charge 95% of the battery in less than four hours. The battery is designed to alert the user when the battery is low by sending a visual and audible alert to the charge display on the RPS II. To have double the run time, add a second RPS Battery Cell. Please Note: The Battery Coupler Kit for ResMed Power Station (RPS) II is needed to connect the batteries.

150W Modified Sine Wave Inverter Compatibility: The 150W inverter combined with the Freedom Travel Battery Pack will provide an AC outlet to plug the AirStart machine into the Freedom battery, however will provide a very low run time. It is NOT ADVISED to use this inverter to power the Airstart machine with the Freedom battery. Use instead the 24V converter.
Deep Cycle Batteries
Deep Cycle Batteries are the same type of batteries that can be used with cars and boats. These are lead acid batteries that CPAP.com does not sell. Deep Cycle (lead acid) batteries used to be the only portable power option for CPAP machines, but now there are many other batteries that work as well. Deep Cycle batteries are typically sold at auto parts stores.
