Will myAir make my sleep apnoea treatment more effective?

myAir could improve your sleep apnoea treatment by helping you to use your CPAP device more.

Greater adherence1

Research shows that patients with sleep apnoea who use the myAir sleep apnoea app show significantly better daily usage of their device and greater adherence to their CPAP treatment than other patients.

+46 minutes!1

In fact, patients who use myAir use their device an average of 46 minutes more per night than other patients.

Good success rate2

When used with AirView, has been proven to help achieve good results: 87% of users successfully comply with CPAP2. Another study has shown that only 50% of CPAP users were compliant without monitoring3.

Your myAir score is a number between 0 and 100 that tells you how well your treatment worked the previous night; the higher the score, the better your treatment performed. myAir analyses your nightly therapy data, then calculates your score based on four important categories:

  • Hours of CPAP use
  • Quality of mask seal
  • Number of apnoea events per hour
  • Number of ‘mask on/off’ incidents

For more information about the myAir score and points system, please click here.

myAir is exclusively for ResMed AirSense 10 and AirCurve 10 users. It is not compatible with ResMed S9 machines or CPAP devices from other manufacturers.

Your sleep therapy data will usually appear on your myAir dashboard about one hour after the end of your therapy session. If you have used your device and your data isn’t available after one hour, please check again later.

Remember, to transmit data, your device must: be plugged into a power socket, have data reception, not be in Airplane mode.
