AirCurve 10 ASV VPAP Machine
Top Flight VPAP with Advanced Humidification System
The AirCurve 10 ASV VPAP Machine with HumidAir by ResMed is a technologically sophisticated therapy device which is capable of delivering high quality results and a personalized therapy experience. The AirCurve 10 ASV has several distinct operational modes and possesses a wide range of performance and comfort features. This VPAP device comes with expiratory pressure relief, automatic start and stop technology, ramp function, SD card and a number of other impressive features. The ResMed AirCurve 10 ASV is a perfect choice for patients who require higher pressure levels than conventional CPAP machines can provide.
The ASVAuto mode is designed to offer specialized support for patients who central sleep apnea breathing disorders such as central sleep apnea (CSA), Cheyne-Stokes respiration and others as well. The AirCurve 10 ASV boasts one of the most complex and sophisticated ASV algorithms ever tested and is capable of adapting to your specific needs on a breath by breath basis. The ASVAuto mode offers personalized therapy which treats your individual problems and meets your unique demands.
Easy-Breathe Waveform with EPR
The AirCurve 10 ASV includes an Easy-Breathe waveform technology which is able to recognize your individual needs as determined by your breathing effort. This ability differentiates the Easy-Breathe waveform for the AirCurve 10 ASV from other waveform technologies which traditionally mimic patient flow shape. Patients will also benefit from the expiratory pressure relief function - the EPR function will lower your pressure level upon inhalation and then raise it back to normal levels following exhalation.
Vsync Leak Management
Mask leakage is a common issue encountered by even the most diligent and conscientious sleep apnea patients. The AirCurve 10 ASV makes unintentional mask leakage a much less serious concern with its Vsync leak management system. Vsync will recognize instances of mask leakage and then make the necessary adjustments so that the issue is corrected.
Auto Start/Stop Functions
The AirCurve 10 ASV device is also equipped with automatic start and stop functions (i.e. SmartStart and SmartStop) which enable your machine to both start and stop easily and with great rapidity. With the automatic start function, your machine will begin functioning the moment you first breathe into your mask; conversely, the automatic stop function will shut down your machine the second you take off your mask. These functions facilitate the process of operating your machine and also help conserve machine power.
The ramp function provides an excellent means for patients to fall asleep in a more natural manner before they feel the full impact of therapy. The ramp feature will postpone the onset of pressure from your machine for a predefined period of time; patients can delay pressure for up to 45 minutes (minimum 5 minutes). Unlike the ramp functions of other machines, the ramp feature for the AirCurve 10 ASV gives patients the option to fully delay the onset of any pressure at all during the specified time frame.
The AirCurve 10 ASV is equipped with a special "mask fitting" feature which informs patients about the quality of their mask fit. After installing their mask, patients can check the screen of the AirCurve 10 ASV and find a visual indicator which depicts the status of their fit - a smiley face means that your fit is satisfactory while a frown indicates that adjustment is necessary to ensure an effective seal.
Data Management System
Keeping on top of your therapy progress is one of the most essential tasks of sleep apnea therapy. The AirCurve 10 ASV facilitates this process with its advanced data management system. This VPAP machine comes with a SD data card and a wireless module; patients can store 365 sessions of compliance and summary data, 30 sessions of detailed data and 7 sessions of high resolution flow data. With this data management system you will be able to transfer your information to your physician or healthcare provider and receive feedback in double quick time.
HumidAir with Optional Heated Tubing
The humidification system for the AirCurve 10 ASV - the HumidAir - is a superior device which will deliver stable humidity levels throughout the entire duration of your therapy session and protect against negative side effects such as nasal congestion, irritation, dryness and sore throat.
The AirCurve10 is compatible with standard tubing, SlimLine tubing and the newly created ClimateLineAIR heated tubing. The ClimateLineAIR heated tubing was designed specifically to work for the AirCurve/Sense 10 and will contribute substantially to your humidification. You will avoid the troubles of rain-out, overheating and other pitfalls. One thing to keep in mind is the AirSense/Curve 10 ClimateLineAir tubing and general Climate-line tubing are not compatible
