AirCurve™ 10 ST

The AirCurve™ 10 ST is a bilevel device with backup rate that provides exceptional patient–ventilator synchrony, reducing the work of breathing so patients remain comfortable and well-ventilated. It’s an ideal choice for reliable, cost-effective noninvasive ventilation when alarms are not required.

TiControl™

Accommodate patients’ unique needs with TiControl™. Ti Max enables you to set a maximum inspiratory time to reduce the risk of intrinsic PEEP and missed patient effort, while Ti Min ensures adequate time for gas exchange without having to increase the pressure setting.

Trigger and cycle sensitivities

Adjustable trigger sensitivity supports patients with a weak inspiratory effort. Adjustable cycle is crucial for those at risk for intrinsic PEEP or premature breath cycling.

Other features

  • Vsync continuous leak management enables reliable delivery of therapy pressure while maintaining patient-device synchrony. Vsync constantly monitors the flow so that if an unintentional mask leak occurs, the device can quickly compensate for the leak and maintain breathing synchrony.
  • Climate Control delivers a constant, comfortable temperature and humidity level during therapy.1 It’s comprised of the HumidAir™ humidifier, which is built into the machine, and the ClimateLineAir™ heated air tube.
  • Integrated wireless technology is built into every AirCurve 10 device – no module or SD card is needed. This makes accessing nightly patient therapy data through AirView fast and easy, and allows your patients to track and stay engaged with their own therapy by using myAir.
