AirCurve™ 10 CS PaceWave™

The AirCurve 10 CS PaceWave is an adaptive servo-ventilator specifically designed to treat patients exhibiting central sleep apnea (CSA), mixed sleep apnea and periodic breathing, with or without obstructive sleep apnea

Featuring the most clinically-studied ASV algorithm, AirCurve 10 CS PaceWave is the only adaptive servo-ventilator that targets the patient’s own recent minute ventilation.

The device also features built-in wireless connectivity** so you can stay more connected to your patients than ever before.

** Wireless communication depends on network availability

 

 

ASVAuto mode

ASVAuto mode adapts to a patient’s ventilatory and upper airway stability needs on a breath-by-breath basis. By treating central breathing disorders with auto-adjusting Pressure Support and upper airway obstruction with auto-adjusting EPAP, it rapidly stabilises breathing and blood gases helping improve sleep quality.1,2

PaceWave is the most clinically studied ASV therapy.

ASV mode

In ASV mode, the EPAP can be manually titrated to set the optimal fixed EPAP to keep the upper airway open.

Other features

  1. Easy-Breathe pressure waveform mimics the wave shape of normal breathing and replicates it for the patient’s breathing comfort.
  2. Continuous leak management enables reliable delivery of therapy pressure while maintaining patient-device synchrony.
  3. Climate Control comprises the HumidAir™ humidifier and the ClimateLineAir™ heated tube and is designed to deliver constant, comfortable temperature and humidity.
