ResMed BiPap Unit – AirCurve 10 VAuto Card-to-Cloud

Meet the ResMed AirCurve 10 Vauto Card-to-Cloud with HumidAir. It is an auto-adjusting Bi-Level (BiPAP) machine that utilizes two pressure settings to treat sleep apnea patients. In addition, the AirCurve 10 Vauto uses a card-to-cloud data card to store sleep data for reporting. 

Please note that this device does not contain Wi-Fi downloading of reports, only SD card reports. 

What Is the Difference Between CPAP Machines and Bi-Level Machines? 

CPAP Machines utilize one pressure setting to keep airways open, while Bi-Level machines use two pressure settings. 

The two Bi-Level settings: 

  • Inspiration 
  • Expiration 

The AirCurve VAuto allows two pressures and uses an auto-adjusting algorithm to deliver these pressures based on the user's therapy needs.

As a self-adjusting bi-level machine, the ResMed AirCurve 10 uses the comfort of both the Easy-Breathe Waveform and AutoSet algorithms to provide excellent pressure support for patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnea.

The AirCurve 10 VAuto maintains fixed pressure support while adjusting the baseline pressure to hold the airway open. 

Designed to provide maximum comfort to patients with normal lung function, the VAuto Mode features ResMed's Easy-Breathe natural pressure waveform, which features ResMed's Easy-Breathe natural pressure waveform. In addition, VAuto now also incorporates the Enhanced AutoSet algorithm with central sleep apnea (CSA) detection.

Product Features of The AirCurve 10 VAuto

The following features are all included with the AirCurve 10 VAuto: 

  • VAuto mode
  • Easy-Breathe Waveform
  • Enhanced AutoSet algorithm
  • Leak management 
  • HumidAir humidification
  • Easy-Breathe motor
  • Light sensor
  • Supplemental oxygen

Let's dig into each of these features: 

VAuto Mode

This mode is helpful for obstructive sleep apnea. The VAuto Mode benefits users who need to set pressure support for a more comfortable experience. In addition, the enhanced Autoset automatically stabilizes the upper airway to increase comfortable support. 

The mode includes central sleep apnea detection to allow clinicians to monitor sleep apnea patients to help them determine if ASV therapy is needed. 

Easy-Breathe Waveform

The waveform provides a comfortable and natural breathing experience. In addition, the physiologically-based shape of the form replicates the patient's effort during use.  

The waveform automatically increases pressure as needed by monitoring the inspiration cycle peak. When the pressure in each breath is reached for the shortest possible time, users experience more comfortable breathing. 

It is crucial to remember that patients' pressure requirements vary throughout the inspiration cycle. Maintaining a low therapy pressure at the beginning of inspiration is necessary to keep the airway open. To prevent flow limitation and snoring, the pressure is increased throughout the rest of the inspiratory phase.

Lung Compliance: Supports lung compliance designed for patients with normal lung function, and the VAuto reduces the patient's work of breathing with a gentle pressure profile.

Enhanced AutoSet Algorithm

The renowned AutoSet algorithm has now been further enhanced. It still benefits from three lines of defense, responding to: 

  • Flow limitation
  • Snoring
  • Obstructive apnea

In addition, the AutoSet algorithm now includes the following:

  • Central sleep apnea (CSA) detection
  • Recognition of a broader range of flow limitation shapes
  • Hypopnea qualification

The AutoSet Algorithm is now prepared to handle sleep apnea therapies much more efficiently. 

Leak Management

The device features continuous leak management to assist delivery of therapy pressure while aligning the device with patient-device synchrony. 

HumidAir Humidification

To assist in creating comfortable sleep therapy, the AirCurve 10 VAuto provides consistent humidification through the night. Using the HumidAir Humidifier, the devices integrate humidification into the therapy and through the optional ClimateLineAir heated tube with climate control technology.

Easy-Breathe Motor

The AirCurve 10 VAuto features an updated motor to make sleeping more peaceful for you and your bed partner. 

Light Sensor

The built-in ambient light sensor automatically adjusts light intensity. When you get out of bed in the middle of the night, the screen's backlight won't disturb your partner. You can also get back to sleep without interruption when the light turns off automatically.

Supplemental Oxygen

The VAuto is compatible with up to 15 L/min of supplemental oxygen in S and CPAP mode and 4 L/min in VAuto mode.

In VAuto mode, pressures extend up to 25 cm H2O, and pressure support can be set from 0-10 cm H2O. Pressure support remains constant throughout the night while the AutoSet algorithm adjusts IPAP and EPAP according to the three lines of defense.

Constant pressure support can reassure the physician that the patient is receiving the support they need.
