For some sleep apnea patients, one air pressure setting on a standard CPAP machine may not provide enough support to sleep comfortably through the night. As our bodies ease further into deeper stages of sleep, muscles surrounding the airway may slacken and require extra support to remain open and unobstructed. Certain sleep positions can also play a part in the level of air pressure a patient requires.
The AirCurve10S with HumidAir, manufactured by ResMed Air Solutions, is a fixed pressure bi-level machine from the new AirCurve 10 line of devices, which is designed to give users the capability to fine-tune settings for a comfortable sleep. The AirCurve 10S is a great option for sleep apnea patients that are noncompliant, or those who find it difficult to exhale against standard CPAP pressure. This machine accommodates a wide range of patient needs by offering two different fixed pressures, which patients can adjust to fit their preferences.
The AirCurve 10S uses Easy-Breathe pressure waveform technology to imitate regular breath patterns, which allows you to breathe more naturally during therapy. Users enjoy a greater degree of freedom with TiControl™ , which allows them to impose minimum and maximum time limits on spontaneous flow cycling. This feature encourages patients to cycle breath on their own, while ensuring a reliable airflow is available if difficulties arise. Thanks to an adjustable trigger mechanism and refined cycle sensitivity, the machine coordinates functioning with your own breathing patterns for peak effectiveness.
Do you find it challenging to inhale through a cold airstream? Like all AirCurve 10 devices, the AirCurve 10S incorporates built-in heated humidification as part of its design. You no longer have to worry about making a mess trying to assemble separate humidifier parts. The integrated HumidAir humidifier supplies you with a soothing stream of warm therapy air without any hassle. If you are looking for even more control over your temperature, consider adding the optional ClimateLineAir heated tubing for an improved therapy experience. The optional tubing attaches easily to the machine and requires only the push of a button to activate Climate Control’s enhanced Auto option.
As a safeguard against frustrating leaks that can occur with some machines, all AirCurve 10 products are equipped with VSync Leak Compensation that lets you continue your treatment without worrying about water seepage. Taking machine management to an even higher level, every AirCurve 10 device comes with AirView,™ ResMed’s new cloudbased patient management system. Through this technology, patients can wirelessly access therapy data. Customers with urgent questions about their treatment or equipment can get answers in minutes thanks to AirView, which includes the ability to troubleshoot and change device settings remotely. The product is compatible with up to 15 L/min of supplemental oxygen.
ResMed’s AirCurve 10 S with Humid-Air is reliable, comfortable, and effective in increasing patient compliance, all while ensuring you benefit from the latest CPAP technology.
