AirCurve 10 ST-A BiLevel Machine
The AirCurve 10 ST-A BiLevel Machine provides effective non-invasive ventilation for patients with respiratory insufficiency such as neuromuscular disease, restrictive lung disorders, severe COPD and hypoventilation syndromes. It features iVAPS, ResMed’s proprietary mode that automatically adapts to each user’s changing needs, and an intelligent Backup Rate that maximizes their opportunity to breathe spontaneously.
INTELLIGENT VOLUME-ASSURED PRESSURE SUPPORT
It features iVAPS (intelligent Volume-Assured Pressure Support), ResMed’s proprietary mode that automatically adapts to each patient’s changing needs, and an intelligent Backup Rate (iBR) that maximizes their opportunity to breathe spontaneously. The AirCurve 10 ST-A includes both fixed and adjustable alarms for added safety and built-in cellular connectivity to AirView for remote monitoring and the ultimate in patient care.
As part of the industry-leading ResMed Air Solutions family, the AirCurve 10 ST-A features the same user-friendly controls, intuitive interface and color LCD screen as our other Air10 devices. This device also displays each patient’s SpO2 and pulse rate on screen before therapy has even begun, so you can personalize the ventilator settings to best suit their needs. Our popular Essentials mode makes therapy easier for patients who don’t want to fuss with settings changes – once they press Start, the ventilator takes care of the rest.
INTELLIGENT & QUIET OPERATION
AirCurve 10’s whisper quiet motor makes for a peaceful environment for you and your bed partner. In addition, AirCurve 10 ST-A 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 backlight 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!
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 ST-A Ramp can be set between 5 and 45 minutes or turned off completely.
SLIM & HEATED TUBING OPTIONS
AirCurve 10 ST-A 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.
CLIMATE CONTROL WITH CLIMATELINEAIR TUBING
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.
INTELLIGENT THERAPY TRACKING & ON SCREEN DISPLAY
AirCurve 10 ST-A’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 ST-A also includes more advanced reporting on items such as tidal volumes, frequency of breathing, AI, CAI, minute ventilation, and more.
