ResMed's VPAP Adapt SV is an industry leading servo ventilator aimed at treating central sleep apnea (CSA). CSA is a complex condition that has various forms, making it difficult to find complete solutions. Common sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) therapies like CPAP lack the technology that VPAP Adapt SV provides its users. The Adapt utilizes a complex algorithm that is flexible with users needs and addresses issues where CPAP falls short. This unique algorithm employed by VPAP Adapt SV ensures ventilation to a moving target, a complete patient/machine synchronization experience, and minimal support during stable breathing.
VPAP Adapt SV algorithm provides unmatched respiratory support to swiftly tackle all forms of central sleep apnea (CSA), mixed apnea and periodic breathing, also known as Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR). Users of VPAP Adapt SV will have the peace of mind knowing that no matter what type of central sleep apnea (CSA) they have, the VPAP Adapt SV will provide the support they need.
Ventilation to a moving target
VPAP Adapt SV provides persistent pressure support by utilizing an algorithm that calculates a target ventilation. This translates into ventilation that can vary gently and consistently throughout the night, providing users with a natural support.
In order to provide complete synchronization, the VPAP Adapt SV uses three distinct factors, including the user's respiratory rate, instantaneous breathing metrics, and a backup respiratory rate. The device combines these different metrics to provide reliable support for any central sleep apnea (CSA) situation.
Minimal support during stable breathing
The VPAP Adapt SV works pre-emptively to respond to any situation. The moment a user puts on the mask and turns on their machine is the moment the Adapt is ready.
- Complete Synchronization
- Extensive Data Collection and Management
This VPAP is able to adapt support when normal breathing resumes and quickly reduces pressure support towards the minimum 3 cm H20

Why ASV instead of bilevel?
Typical bilevel ventilatory supports are often difficult for patients to tolerate. The pressure must be regularly monitored and increased to a high level when users have an episode. This leads to over-ventilation during normal breathing which can cause discomfort.
Does the ASV algorithm stabilize patient breathing?
Yes, the ASV algorithm is able to quickly balance breathing patterns and arterial blood gases thereby reducing discomfort and arousals correlated to bilevel treatment. .
