AirCurve™ 10 VAuto BiLevel Machine with HumidAir™ Heated Humidifier is the next advancement in BiLevel treatment from ResMed. This machine automatically adjusts to deliver one pressure for inhalation, and another for exhalation.The HumidAir™ heated humidifier is built into the AirCurve™ 10 VAuto expanding on the success of the S9 line. Add the Optional ClimateLineAir™ heated tubing to optimize humidification.
The machine automatically adjusts inhalation and exhalation pressure on a breath by breath basis while monitoring the length of inhalation breaths and responding to regulate the breathing cycle.
ResMed developed an advanced algorithm technology for bilevel therapy to continuously monitor breathing in order to adjust the inhalation and exhalation pressure breath by breath. Adjusting the delivered pressure based on the needs of the user increases the comfort of the therapy while maintaining an open airway.
Built In HumidAir™ Humidifier
The HumidAir™ humidifier is built into the AirCurve™ 10 machine taking up limited space on a bedside table. Easily adjust the humidification level using the My Options screen on the machine. To set the amount of moisture added to the air stream, select levely 1 through 8 with 1 being the lowest level of humidification, and 8 being the highest. If humidification is not desired, turn the humidifier off entirely.
Optional ClimateLineAir™ Heated Tube
The OPTIONAL ClimateLineAir™ Heated Tube can be added to the therapy system to optimize humidification. Select the "Auto" function on the AirCurve 10 VAuto to allow the Climate Control system to set for the optimum humidification with minimal rainout condensation. The system considers the temperature of the room air to deliver the optimum level of humidification. Please Note: The ClimateLineAir™ tube is 78 inches in length.
Expiratory Pressure Relief (EPR™)
ResMed's EPR™ feature helps to make therapy feel more natural by adjusting the amount of pressure delivered during exhalation and inhalation. EPR™ can be turned off, or set to 1, 2, or 3. Level 1 is the smallest change between inhalation and exhalation and level 3 is the largest change in pressures
Vsync Leak Management
Vsync monitors mask leaks throughout the night and compensates by adjusting the baseline pressure to maintain therapy effectiveness.
The TiControl feature on the AirCurve VAuto machine monitors the pattern of inhalation and exhalation, comparing it against the TiMax and TiMin settings on the machine. Those with respiratory disorders such as COPD or obstructive lung disease may experience early or delayed changes from inspiration to expiration, referred to as cycling. The 10 VAuto BiLevel TiControl feature is designed to prevent cycling by setting a minimum and maximum time limit on inspiration. When the machine detects the user breathing which falls outside the machine settings, it will intervene to alter the timing of the delivered IPAP (inhalation) or EPAP (exhalation) pressure
Ti Max: Maximum length of Inhalation
Ti Min: Minimum length of Inhalation
Sensitivity level for inhalation trigger Cycle: Sensitivity level for exhalation The AirCurve 10 VAuto machine does spontaneously regulate the breathing pattern to avoid cycling which results in inefficient breathing. This feature CANNOT be turned off. This machine is NOT a BiLevel ST machine and DOES NOT have a back up rate setting. LCD Display with My Options - has a color LCD display. The menus are designed to be easy to read and use. Select the menu item on the screen by turning the easy grip dial. The AirCurve™ 10 includes an integrated light sensor to adjust the machine screen light level. The sensor reads the light in the room and adjusts the screen brightness automatically. Once the lights in the room are turned off, the machine screen dims. After a few seconds the machine screen goes dark.
Advanced Data Records
The therapy information on the machine's on board memory. The data can be downloaded to the included SD card. The machine's on board memory holds compliance information for 365 sessions of use as well as detailed data for 30 sessions.
AUTOMATIC BI-LEVEL THERAPY
All patients do not require a uniform pressure throughout the night. The AirCurve 10 VAuto Bilevel machine understands this and adjusts system pressure according to individual requirements. This means that the device allows you save energy and provides you with the least obtrusive and least invasive therapy.
While setting up your device for further use, the AirCurve asks you to allow/disallow it to automatically start or stop just by breathing into or out of the device. This technology is meant for technical convenience of the user as given by other appliances as well.
The AirCurve 10 features slightly tweaked and improved ramp function than the previous ResMed VPAP models. It allows users to delay the onset of pressure for up to 45 minutes and lets them sleep naturally without experiencing the inclusion of a foreign device. After some time the ramp increases pressure in slight intervals until it reaches the desired prescribed pressure settings.
ENHANCED AUTOSET ALGORITHEM
ResMed's renowned AutoSet algorithm has now been further enhanced. It still benefits from three lines of defense, responding to: flow limitation, snoreing, and obstructive apnea, in addition it now includes: central sleep apnea (CSA) detection, recognition of a wider range of flow limitation shapes, hypopnoea qualification.
