AirCurve ASV Bi-Level with Heated Humidifier
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.
This is the third time I have purchased something from the CPAP Clinic and their service and prices are EXCELLENT. Delivery is fast and they actually answer their emails promptly. :-) They have free stuff occasionally which is nice.

Top Notch Customer Support
Would highly recommend this company....very helpful and knowledgeable staff.... they will assist you every step of the way starting from the time you are gathering information on which products should you get, which machine would work for your condition, any compatibility issues, etc. up to the point where making it sure that everything will be covered with regards to insurance benefit claims. with regards to the pricing, it is definitely way lower compared to other clinics. Thanks so much to Gabriel who have been totally helpful along the way.
Excellent customer service and products
I want to acknowledge the excellent Customer Service that I have received from Juli at the Vaughan location. I first was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea a few years ago and I was in denial for almost 1 year, then finally decided to get a machine and went to a different place close to Yonge and Steeles and I had the worst experience ever. Fortunately, I did not give up and searched in Google for other CPAP machine places, and one day, I was in Vaughan, and Google lead me to this CPAP location at Vaughan. Juli was very knowledgeable about the products, and about how one may feel when just getting started to use a CPAP for the first time. Her kind approach and patience really made the difference to get me started with my CPAP machine. That first night, I slept for the first time in many years, and woke up feeling energized, as if I had had a Power up sleep. I am very thankful to Juli s professionalism in customer service, the quality of the Resmed product that we chose, her guidance and patience for us to get the most comfortable mask I could have ever hoped for (Dreamworks) after her helping me to try several others. The quality of sleep that I have now has most probably saved my life. I am getting the right care for my body, the right oxygen I need and definitely peace of mind. I decided to buy the cleaning machine, which has worked wonderfully, also giving me the confidence that my mask and machine are very well taken care of. I recently purchased a mask replacement, called her, and as always, her customer support was excellent and got the products shipped to my home right away. Thank you Juli, you make a difference in people s lives.
