BiLEVEL POSITIVE AIRWAY PRESSURE FOR COMFORT
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.
INTELLIGENT & QUIET OPERATION
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 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!

Why Do I Need a Prescription for CPAP /BiPAP?
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is the leading form of treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Before one can begin CPAP therapy, the disorder must first be diagnosed through a sleep study to determine the existence and severity of OSA. Once a determination of OSA has been made and CPAP therapy has been established as the recommended treatment, a prescription for a CPAP machine must be obtained before equipment can be issued.
