AirCurve™ 10 S

The AirCurve 10 S is a fixed-pressure bilevel device that is ideal for noncompliant CPAP patients and delivers effective, comfortable therapy for a wide range of patients. It comes with an integrated humidifier and wireless communications capability.

The AirCurve 10 S also features optional Easy-Breathe waveform, Vsync leak compensation technology that provides patient–device synchrony, TiControl™ and adjustable trigger and cycle sensitivity.

Easy-Breathe technology

The Easy-Breathe pressure waveform mimics the wave shape of normal breathing and replicates it for your patients’ breathing comfort.

Climate Control

Climate Control comprises the HumidAir™ humidifier and the ClimateLineAir™ heated air tube and is designed to deliver constant, comfortable temperature and humidity levels and aims to minimize the common side effects of therapy to increase compliance.1

Other features

  • Using AirView™, ResMed’s cloud-based patient management system, you can access nightly therapy data, troubleshoot remotely (using the remote assist feature) and change device settings remotely.
  • TiControl™ lets you set minimum and maximum time limits on either side of the patient’s spontaneous flow cycling, creating a window of opportunity for the patient to spontaneously cycle the breath and provide timely intervention during challenging conditions.
  • Adjustable trigger and cycle can be used to optimize synchrony between the device and the patient’s own respiratory efforts.
  • Vsync continuous leak management enables reliable delivery of therapy pressure while maintaining patient-device synchrony.
  • Compatible with up to 15 L/min of supplemental oxygen in CPAP and S modes.
