ResMed's AirCurve 10 S bilevel machine is ideal for sleep apnea patients who find it difficult to adjust to therapy on a traditional CPAP machine.
AirCurve 10 S's bilevel therapy, delivers a high pressure on inhalation and a low pressure on exhalation so breathing feels more natural and less forced. It also includes smart lifestyle features like an ambient light sensor and user friendly controls; and advanced comfort extras like a built-in HumidAir Humidifier and the exclusive Easy-Breathe natural breathing waveform.
BiLevel Positive Airway Pressure
AirCurve 10 S delivers bilevel pressure at a high level on inspiration (iPAP) and a lower level on expiration (ePAP) so breathing feels more natural and comfortable throughout the night. In addition AirCurve 10 S's Easy-Breathe pressure waveform mimics the shape of your natural breathing and replicates it for a more natural overall breathing experience.
Built-in HumidAire Humidifier for Maximum Comfort
Heated humidification helps bilevel therapy users to sleep better and longer, without dry mouth or discomfort. ResMed's HumidAir Humidifier is built directly into the AirCurve 10 so it is much smaller and simpler than other "integrated" or external humidifiers. The AirCurve's 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.
Easy-Breathe Motor & Ambient Light Sensors
AirCurve 10's whisper quiet motor makes for a peaceful environment for you and your bed partner. In addition AirCurve 10 S 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 doesnt disrupt your partner. The screens back light also turns off automatically to help you fall back to sleep without disturbance.
SmartStart & Auto-Stop Functionality for Ease of Use
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. 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's Ramp can be set between 5 and 45 minutes or turned off completely.
SlimLine & ClimateLineAir Heated Tubing Available
AirCurve 10 S 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.
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 Continuous Leak Monitoring
AirCurve 10's Vsync technology 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 AirCurve 10 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 S can also be used with continuous flow oxygen therapy up to 15LPM with an oxygen enrichment adapter or a bilevel mask with an oxygen port.
Intelligent Therapy Tracking & On Screen Data Display
AirCurve 10'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 S also includes more advanced reporting on items such as tidal volumes, frequency of breathing, AI, CAI, minute ventilation, and more.
AirCurve 10 comes with an SD Data Card pre-installed in the unit. In addition built in wireless communications mean that you and your doctor can work together if desired.
