US-based ResMed has unveiled new AirCurve 10 series, which includes three bilevel devices for specialized support of challenging sleep apnea cases and an adaptive servo-ventilation device for patients with central sleep apnea or Cheyne-Stokes respiration.
The AirCurve 10 line includes AirCurve 10 S, AirCurve 10 VAuto, AirCurve 10 ST and AirCurve 10 ASV.
ResMed sleep-disordered breathing global business unit president Greg Peake said: "We’ve developed the AirCurve 10 series for patients who need truly personalized support.
"These new devices raise the bar in their category – complementing the connected care offerings in our Air Solutions platform and enabling our customers to take their patient care to new heights while streamlining their workflows and enhancing their efficiency."
AirCurve 10 S features two different adjustable pressures and is suitable for patients who need extra pressure support or find it difficult to adjust to therapy on a fixed pressure continuous positive airway pressure device.
AirCurve 10 VAuto is an auto-adjusting bilevel device for patients who need greater pressure support to treat their obstructive sleep apnea. It uses the AutoSet algorithm and Easy-Breathe waveform in its VAuto algorithm.
AirCurve 10 ST is a bilevel device that offers patient-ventilator synchrony, reducing the work of breathing so patients remain comfortable and well ventilated.
AirCurve 10 ASV is a bilevel device for central breathing disorders such as Cheyne-Stokes respiration, central sleep apnea or obstructive events, and is the adaptive servo-ventilator that targets the patient’s own recent minute ventilation.
AirCurve 10 Series for sleep-disordered breathing therapy includes TiControl, Trigger Sensitivity, Vsync and HumidAir.
