ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto BiLevel Machine
The AirCurve™ 10 VAuto is an auto adjusting bi-level (BiPAP) machine that uses two pressure settings for sleep apnea treatment. The difference between CPAP and Bi-Level is that CPAP uses one pressure setting to keep the airway open and stable while Bi-Level uses two; one for inspiration and one for expiration. The AirCurve™ V Auto not only allows two pressures but uses an auto adjusting algorithm to deliver these pressures based on the users therapy needs.
The AirCurve™ 10 VAuto is an auto-adjusting bilevel machine that uses the comfort of both the AutoSet™ algorithm and Easy-Breathe Waveform in its VAuto algorithm to treat obstructive sleep apnea patients who can benefit from greater pressure support.
ADVANCED AUTOSET ALGORITHM ADJUSTS TO YOUR SLEEP NEEDS
ResMed's AutoSet algorithm continuously monitors your sleep, detecting and adapting to flow limitations, snoring, and obstructive apneas. When an event is detected AirCurve 10 VAuto adjusts inspiratory and expiratory pressures as required to ensure successful, comfortable sleep and effective sleep therapy. In addition, AirCurve 10 VAuto can differentiate between obstructive and central apneas so you'll always be sure you're getting the appropriate therapy for your changing needs.
INTELLIGENT & QUIET OPERATION
AirCurve 10's whisper quiet motor makes for a peaceful environment for you and your bed partner. In addition AirCurve 10 VAuto has an ambient light sensor that adjusts the brightness of the screen based on the amount of light in the room. So if you get up during the night and need to pause your therapy, the screen will stay dim so it doesn't disrupt your partner. The screen’s back light also turns off automatically to help you fall back to sleep without disturbance.
BUILT-IN HUMIDAIR HUMIDIFIER
Heated humidification helps patients to sleep better and longer, without dry mouth or discomfort, during bilevel therapy. ResMed's HumidAir Humidifier is built directly into the AirCurve 10 so it is much smaller and simpler than other "integrated" humidifier options. The AirCurve's HumidAir humidifier is easily adjustable from the "My Options" screen on the device. You can turn humidity off completely or choose levels from 1 to 8, where 1 is the lowest humidity setting and 8 is the highest.
SMARTSTART & AUTO STOP CONVENIENCE
The AirCurve 10's SmartStart function begins your sleep apnea therapy as soon as you breathe into your mask. When you remove your mask, it stops automatically after a few seconds. Really, what could be more simple!
AirCurve 10's Ramp feature helps make therapy comfortable from the moment you turn on your device. Ramp works by delivering lower pressures at the beginning of therapy, to help you fall asleep, and then increasing pressures to your prescribed levels over time. The AirCurve 10 VAuto's Ramp can be set between 5 and 45 minutes or turned off completely.
SLIM & HEATED TUBING OPTIONS
AirCurve 10 VAuto comes with ResMed's ultra-light SlimLine CPAP tubing which is 40% lighter than traditional CPAP tubing. To optimize your HumidAir Humidifier's capabilities upgrade to ClimateLineAir Heated Tubing in your shopping cart.
CLIMATE CONTROL WITH CLIMATELINEAIR TUBING
When you use ClimateLineAir Tubing with the AirCurve 10 the system's advanced Climate Control features are activated. Climate Control is an intelligent system that adapts to changes in room temperature, pressure flow, and mask and mouth leak, to provide constant, comfortable temperatures and humidity levels during sleep therapy. With Climate Control and ClimateLineAir Tubing your machine will maintain a set temperature and relative humidity at the mask during sleep while minimizing condensation and rainout.
VSYNC LEAK MONITORING
AirCurve 10's Vsync monitors mask leaks throughout the night and compensates by adjusting baseline pressures to maintain therapy effectiveness.
TiCONTROL TIME LIMITS
TiControl is an additional setting on the VAuto designed to assist patients with COPD, obstructive lung disease, and similar respiratory conditions. With TiControl your doctor can extend the inspiratory (IPAP) phase of therapy, based on your personal needs, to provide you with sufficient time to inhale completely before EPAP is engaged. AirCurve 10 can also be used in conjunction with continuous flow oxygen therapy up to 4LPM in V-Auto mode and up to 15LPM in standard bilevel and cpap modes. (A standard Oxygen Enrichment Adapter is required for oxygen use.)
INTELLIGENT THERAPY TRACKING & ON SCREEN DISPLAY
AirCurve 10 VAuto's onboard "Sleep Report" is a valuable tool letting you know how your therapy is progressing each day. In the Sleep Report you can view usage hours, mask seal indicators, humidification indicators, events per hour of use, average usage hours, leak rate, average inspiratory pressure, average expiratory pressure, and AHI. The AirCurve 10 VAuto also includes more advanced reporting on items such as tidal volumes, frequency of breathing, AI, CAI, minute ventilation, and more.
AirCurve 10 includes onboard therapy data storage with built in wireless communications so you and your doctor can review therapy progress and work together to ensure your treatment is progressing successfully. An SD Data Card is available for optional use to extend data storage capabilities.
MYAIR PERSONALIZED THERAPY SUPPORT
Like your own sleep coach, ResMed's new optional online program, myAir, provides support during every stage of treatment. By giving you access to your therapy data, it lets you continually track your progress and see how well you’re doing. Emails or text messages can also provide helpful education and encouragement to support you along the way. As you mark your successes and celebrate your milestones with awards and badges, you’ll stay motivated to keep going. Patients can view their sleep data from the previous night using the myAir dashboard. Intuitive icons and charts make the dashboard simple to understand and follow.
