Premier ASV Machine From ResMed
The AirCurve 10 ASV is a bi-level machine that delivers compliant therapy for patients with central sleep apnea or other severely obstructive sleep disorders, including Cheyne-Stokes. The device offers users a host of comfort features, including Vsync leak detection, an innovative ramp, and an overhauled humidification system complete with a new heated breathing tube. Easy-Breathe technology reduces pressure at the onset of each breath for additional comfort while EPR helps insure that your machine kicks in to fight apneas as they develop. The machine features large buttons and a brightly lit LCD screen, making it one of the most intuitive bi-level devices ever made. Additionally, SmartStart and SmartStop therapy features enable you to seamlessly transition in and out of therapy without requiring you to program additional settings. Simply put, ResMed's AirCurve 10 ASV has your comfort in mind every step of the way and is the most user friendly bi-level device on the market.
The AirCurve 10 ASV is specifically intended to offer personalized therapy for patients with central breathing disorders, including central sleep apnea (CSA), Cheyne-Stokes respiration, and other related obstructive episodes. The AirCurve 10 ASV is the only servo-ventilator that effectively targets your recent minute ventilation, featuring one of the most advanced and proven ASV algorithm's ever tested. With ASVAuto, the machine adapts to your ventilatory and upper airway stability needs with every breath. These rapid pressure responses help personalize effective therapy.
Data Management with ResMed AirView
Manage your data with ResMed AirView service on the cloud. Your sleep apnea information will be automatically updated to the cloud, and with REsMed AirView you can get alerts sent directly to your phone via voicemail or text, or have an email sent to you to warn you of mask leaks and other potential issues. RespShop can also print out readouts of your data and make changes to your settings if deemed necessary by your doctor. Service is free with the purchase of a machine at RespShop.

Vsync is ResMed's latest leak management system that helps provide patient-ventilator synchronization. This system is available on all VPAP devices and helps to ensure that your therapy is comfortable and leak free.
The AirCurve 10 ASV features a wider pressure range of pressure than standard CPAP machines. For the ASV, you can program your desired setting from anywhere between 4 cm H20 and 25 cm H20. This allows you to use more pressure than on a typical machine, which is ideal for CSA patients with severe sleep apnea.
EPR with Easy Breathe
One of the top features on the AirCurve ASV is Easy-Breathe, which enables you to breathe with the minimum amount of pressure possible. It works by reducing pressure at the onset of each breath and limiting it throughout exhalation. The machine is also capable of detecting when you are having an apnea: when the ASV detects an apnea, it will increase pressure to your desired setting until the event subsides.
The AirCurve 10 ASV comes with SmartStart and SmartStop, which enables you to commence and end therapy with a single breath. All you have to do is program your settings into the machine, apply your mask, and begin breathing to start therapy. SmartStop allows you to stop therapy just as easily: once you remove your mask, your machine will detect that you are no longer in the midst of therapy and will shut down.
HumidAir Heated Humidifier
The new HumidAir heated humidifier is included on every ResMed AirCurve machine. This detachable heated humidifier will help you fight some of the most unwanted symptoms associated with VPAP therapy, including rainout, dry throat, dry mouth, and nasal congestion. For those who dislike using a heated humidifier, you can remove the humidifier from the machine or simply leave the water chamber empty.
ResMed's AirCurve 10 ASV features a brand new ramp design. Like all ramps, this delays the onset of full air pressure for a set period of time. What's new is that you can delay the onset of any pressure at all for up to forty-five minutes: this will allow you to go to bed and fall asleep without any injection of air pressure. Simply program your settings into the machine, set your ramp, and drift off to sleep in quiet comfort.
(Optional) ClimateLineAir Heated Breathing Tube
ResMed introduced the ClimateLineAir on their AirSense series of CPAP machines and the heated breathing tube is also available on the AirCurve 10 AVS as well. The tube connects your device to any CPAP mask and ferries warm air from the humidifier up to your mask, helping you fight unwanted sleep apnea therapy symptoms like nasal congestion and dry mouth. For users who dislike humidification, a standard SlimLine tube is available as well.
The AirCurve 10 ASV includes ResMed's proprietary mask fitting feature, which detects the quality of your mask seal. If your mask is sealed properly, the screen will display a large smiling face. If your mask requires adjustment, a frowning face will appear instead.
Big Buttons, Bright Screen
The AirCurve 10 ASV features intuitive controls that make operating the device easy on the user. The machine features large and easy to press buttons, a brightly lit LCD screen, and an interface that can be navigated quickly and logically. Don't worry about the screen being too bright at night: the machine has an ambient light detector that dims the light slightly in the dark, so it won't wake your partner.
