The AirCurve 10 ASV isa bi-level machine that isspecifically intended to offer personalized therapy for patients with central breathing disorders, including central sleep apnea (CSA), Cheyne-Stokes respiration, and other related obstructive episodes.
The AirCurve 10 ASV is the only servo-ventilator that effectively targets your recent minute ventilation, featuring one of the most advanced and proven ASV algorithms ever tested. With ASVAuto, the machine adapts to your ventilatory and upper airway stability needs with every breath. These rapid pressure responses help personalize effective therapy. Features ResMed Air - View VSync EPR with Easy Breathe Smart - Start/ Smart - Stop HumidAir Heated Humidifier Innovative Ramp Data Management with ResMed Air - View Manage your data with ResMed Air - View service on the cloud.
Your sleep apnea information will be automatically updated to the cloud, and with ResMed Air - View you can get alerts sent directly to your phone via voicemail or text, or have an email sent to you to warn you of mask leaks and other potential issues. VSync Vsync is Res - Meds latest leak management system that helps provide patient-ventilator synchronization.
This system is available on all VPAP devices and helps to ensure that your therapy is comfortable and leak free. Pressure Range The AirCurve 10 ASV features a wider pressure range of pressure than standard CPAP machines. For the ASV, you can program your desired setting from anywhere between 4 cm H20 and 25 cm H20. This allows you to use more pressure than on a typical machine, which is ideal for CSA patients with severe sleep apnea. It works by reducing pressure at the onset of each breath and limiting it throughout exhalation. The machine is also capable of detecting when you are having an apnea: when the ASV detects an apnea, it will increase pressure to your desired setting until the event subsides.
SmartStart/SmartStop The AirCurve 10 ASV comes with Smart - Start and Smart - Stop, which enables you to commence and end therapy with a single breath. All you have to do is program your settings into the machine, apply your mask, and begin breathing to start therapy. - Stop allows you to stop therapy just as easily: once you remove your mask, your machine will detect that you are no longer in the midst of therapy and will shut down. HumidAir Heated Humidifier The new HumidAir heated humidifier is included on every ResMed AirCurve machine. This detachable heated humidifier will help you fight some of the most unwanted symptoms associated with VPAP therapy, including rainout, dry throat, dry mouth, and nasal congestion. For those who dislike using a heated humidifier, you can remove the humidifier from the machine or simply leave the water chamber empty. Innovative Ramp Res - Meds AirCurve 10 ASV features a brand new ramp design. Like all ramps, this delays the onset of full air pressure for a set period of time. Simply program your settings into the machine, set your ramp, and drift off to sleep in quiet comfort. Mask Fitting The AirCurve 10 ASV includes Res - Meds proprietary mask fitting feature, which detects the quality of your mask seal. If your mask is sealed properly, the screen will display a large smiling face. If your mask requires adjustment, a frowning face will appear instead. Big Buttons, Bright Screen The AirCurve 10 ASV features intuitive controls that make operating the device easy on the user.
The machine features large and easy to press buttons, a brightly lit LCD screen, and an interface that can be navigated quickly and logically. Dont worry about the screen being too bright at night: the machine has an ambient light detector that dims the light slightly in the dark, so it wont wake your partner.

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.
