The AirCurve 10 ASV bilevel machine offers truly personalized therapy for central breathing disorders, such as Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR), central sleep apnea (CSA) and associated obstructive events. Featuring the most clinically studied and proven ASV algorithm, AirCurve 10 ASV is the only adaptive servo-ventilator that targets the patient own recent minute ventilation.
ResMed's ASV technology is the most studied treatment for central breathing disorders, and has been the subject of more published papers than any other therapy and used for over 10 years to treat patients with central breathing disorders.
Adaptive Servo-Ventilation (ASV): ASV is a new form of positive airway pressure unit that continuously monitors the patient breathing pattern in exquisite detail. Whenever ASV detects significant reductions or pauses in breathing, it intervenes with just enough support to maintain the patient breathing at 90% of what had been normal for that individual just prior to the decrease in breathing. When the patient breathing problem ends, the machine reduces pressure gently. When the patient breathing is stable, ASV provides just enough pressure support to help keep the airway open, thereby providing an approximate 50% reduction in the work of breathing. The ASV Technology continuously adjusts itself to meet the patient needs in a way that will feel normal for that patient at that point in time, most like the patient's natural breathing, which makes therapy much more comfortable.
Easy-Breathe pressure waveform mimics the wave shape of normal breathing and replicates it for your breathing comfort.
Continuous leak management enables reliable delivery of therapy pressure while maintaining patient-device synchrony.
Climate Control comprises the HumidAir humidifier and the ClimateLineAir heated air tube and is designed to deliver constant, comfortable temperature and humidity levels during therapy and aims to minimize the common side effects of therapy to increase compliance.
ASV Auto mode:
In ASVAuto mode, this bilevel machine not only responds within the breath, adjusting Pressure Support to stabilize respiration, it also automatically adjusts the expiratory pressure in order to provide the minimum pressure required to maintain upper airway patency. The ASV Auto Mode analyzes the state of the patient upper airway on a breath-by-breath basis and delivers expiratory pressure within the allowed range.
HumidAir Integrated Heated Humidifier is built in to the CPAP device. You can use the ClimateLine Air heated hose tube or a standard SlimLine lightweight hose tube. Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure provides two levels of pressure: Inspiratory Positive Airway Pressure (IPAP) and a lower Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP) for easier exhalation.
Complex sleep apnea syndrome and central sleep apnea. Normalizes breathing, completely suppressing CSA and/or Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR) Improves sleep, (the amount of time the patient spends in slow-wave and REM sleep increases)
Adaptive-servo ventilation Algorithm:
Adapts to the patient ventilatory needs on a breath-by-breath basis Automatically calculates a target ventilation (90% of the patient's recent average ventilation) Adjusts the pressure support to achieve it ASV algorithm constantly learns, responds, predicts and synchronizes with the patient respiratory pattern to help rapidly stabilize respiration. The pressure support varies to respond to the patient's need. Mandatory breaths are delivered at the patient recent spontaneous breath rate.
The manufacturer recommends that new patients purchase their devices, masks and initial accessories from a homecare company that can provide an individualized patient equipment setup, clinical and after-sales support, and a program to assist patients with therapy success.
CPAP Clinic meets this set of requirements by providing you with the following services:
it is so refreshing and helpful that you show pricing so viewers can comparison shop. i refuse to deal with sites that do not, and i know i am not alone.

Wow Fast and very helpful srvice
My local Vancouver Island CPAP store wanted $2400 for an S10 RESMED including $400 extra for the humidifier tank that already comes with the machine. They also told me that I couldn t get extended medical insurance if I bought online. Wow , this is totally untrue. I found CPAP clinic through several references on a CPAP forum. Talked to the manager on the phone and got the same machine for $980, delivered to my home at no extra cost and my extended medical insurance paid for it. The service offered by CPAP Clinic is great. They even threw in some extra filters with my order for free. Fast, very helpful and I will be a repeat customer because of my experience. Dennis Nanaimo BC
My go to place
To go to any other place would be illogical. Top shelf service, i have never had a bad experiance with these knowledgable people. Best of all when it came to dealing with my health insurance guys, they told me say this, send those papers we emailed you and all will be well. Spot on. I hate dealing with health insurance dudes. How they get Canada post to move so quick will always be a mystery to mankind. So here s to the cpap clinic, thanks for all the years of top shelf service.
