The AirCurve™™ 10 VAuto is an auto-adjusting bilevel device 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. The AirCurve™™ 10 VAuto adjusts the baseline pressure to hold the airway open while maintaining a fixed pressure support. This is an auto bilevel machine with a built in heated humidifier capable of self-adjusting the humidification level based on the temperature in which the machine is stationed.

Operational Modes

The AirCurve™ 10 has three operational modes - CPAP, bi-level and spontaneous (S). When using the bi-level mode, the AirCurve™ has the ability to recognize your particular breathing pattern and make adjustments automatically in order to provide ideal pressure levels throughout therapy. Patients also have access to the spontaneous (S) mode, which is functionally different that allows the user to exercise more control by setting minimum and maximum time limits during Spontaneous respiration. Finally, the AirCurve™ 10 VAuto offers a CPAP mode so patients can have access to conventional CPAP therapy.

Easy-Breathe Waveform Technology with EPR

Easy-Breathe waveform technology enables patients to have extremely detailed personalized therapy. Easy-Breathe waveform is able to detect your specific needs as determined by your individual breathing effort during sleep; this distinguishes the waveform for the AirCurve™ 10 from other waveform technologies which typically mimic patient flow shape. It also possesses expiratory pressure relief (EPR) which is designed to lower pressure levels upon exhalation and then elevate them back to normal during inhalation so as to provide consistent relief.

Auto Start/Stop

The AirCurve™ 10 boasts SmartStart and SmartStop functions which simplify the process of turning your machine on and off. With SmartStart, your machine will begin functioning at the precise moment you breathe into your mask; and with SmartStop your AirCurve™ device will cease function the second you remove your mask. These automatic start/stop functions make it easier for patients to operate their device and also help conserve power.

Ramp Function

The ramp function for the AirCurve™ 10 Resmed VPAP Auto enables patients to fall asleep more naturally without interference from the artificial pressure levels of therapy. With the ramp function patients can delay the onset of pressure for up to 45 minutes; this provides a window of time for patients to fall asleep before they take awareness of the pressure generated by the machine. Patients can manipulate this function so that pressure starts sometime between 5 and 45 minutes depending on their preference. This is ideal for patients who are just getting acquainted to the pressure demands of therapy.

Vsync Leak Management and TiControl

Vsync is a complex algorithm which helps monitor your breathing behavior and maintain desirable pressure levels during therapy. It is able to recognize occurrences of unintentional mask leakage and then compensate for such occurrences; hence, Vsync is an excellent means to provide better patient-ventilator synchrony and ensure stable pressure throughout therapy. This algorithm works in tandem with TiControl which is a special mechanism which allows patients to artificially create time limits around their spontaneous flow cycling; creating such limits enables patients to more effectively address problems which may arise such as inefficient breathing. Note:This machine DOES NOT have the ability to provide air on a timed basis. It is NOT a VPAP ST device and DOES NOT utilize a back up rate setting.

Pressure Range

The AirCurve™ 10 has a pressure range of 3-25cm H2O. This range is wider than conventional CPAP machines and gives patients access to higher pressure levels that may be needed. Higher pressure levels are typically required to treat complex cases of sleep apnea that a standard CPAP could not treat.

Mask Fitting Feature

Creating a secure seal is an integral part of successful sleep apnea therapy. The AirCurve™ 10 helps patients be certain that they have produced a high quality seal with its special "mask fitting" feature. The AirCurve™ 10 Resmed VPAP Auto is capable of determining whether your mask is fitting properly (and consequently has an adequate seal) and will display the quality of your fit on its screen - a happy face indicates a desirable fit while a frown indicates that further adjustment is necessary.

Intuitive Design

The AirCurve™ 10 boasts an intuitive and straightforward design and is remarkably easy to operate. This Resmed VPAP Auto machine has a brightly lit screen which features large buttons and dials. Conveniently, the screen for this device has the ability to automatically adjust brightness according to the available surrounding light; this function guarantees that patients will be able to easily read their screen at all hours.

Data Management System

Managing therapy data is an essential task for patients who seek to fully optimize their overall therapy experience. Toward this end, the AirCurve™ comes with a wireless module and a data card which has impressive information storage capabilities. With the SD data card you will be able to obtain compliance and summary data for up to 365 therapy sessions, more detailed data for up to 30 sessions and high resolution flow data for a maximum of 7 sessions. With the data management equipment provided with the AirCurve™ you will be able to transfer and share your vital therapy information with your healthcare provider easily so you can receive proper feedback regarding your progress.

Integrated Humidifier

This device has a fully integrated heated humidification system - the HumidAir device. The HumidAir humidification system represents a significant step forward when compared with its predecessor humidifiers - it is easier to use, more advanced and can be paired with the new (optional) ClimateLineAir heated tubing. Patients who do not wish to use the humidification system can simply detach the Humidifier and operate their AirCurve™ 10 without it. However, keep in mind that operating your VPAP machine with the HumidAir will generally confer a number of benefits, including preventing nasal congestion, dryness, irritation and other negative side effects of therapy.
