The Aircurve 10 Vauto is one of the most advanced bi-level APAP devices out there in the market. Enhanced with some of the most advanced and state-of-the-art upgrades, this device is a must-have for reliable treatment of sleep apnea patients.
The ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto can be best described as a smart machine in a portable size that can be trusted with the patient’s life. What makes this device truly unique is its combination of both the AutoSet algorithm and the Easy-Breathe waveform. Both these features have been incorporated in the auto-adjusting machine’s VAuto algorithm. Apart from the reliable treatment of sleep apnea patients, the device can also provide therapy to those suffering from other obstructive respiratory disorders.
The USP of the device is that it can automatically adjust to the inhalation and exhalation pressure. It does so on a breath-by-breath basis by closely monitoring the breath cycle.
The ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto has exceptional improvements over previous models to make therapy as comfortable as possible. It comes with a continuous leak management system and a built-in ambient light sensor as well. The following are some of the commendable features of AirCurve 10 VAuto.
- AutoSet Algorithm
- EPR (Expiratory Pressure Relief)
- Advanced Bi-Level Therapy
- Automatic Data Recorder
The AutoSet algorithm has been specifically developed by ResMed to monitor each breathing cycle on a breath-by-breath basis closely. This makes bi-level therapy possible for the patient by adjusting both the inhalation air pressure and the exhalation air pressure. While it is of utmost importance to keep the patient’s airways open, it is equally important to adjust the delivered pressure. This feature can be customized as per the patient's need and varies from one compliant patient to another.
ResMed has incorporated the smart Vsync technology in the ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto. It is a continuous leak management system that keeps on monitoring the mask leaks throughout the night. It is also responsible for ensuring that the patient is comfortable by adjusting the baseline pressure. Such a simple step goes a long way in enhancing therapy efficiency.
EPR (Expiratory Pressure Relief)
EPR technology has been developed, keeping in mind the need to make the therapy feel natural and comfortable. The patients are anyway distressed due to irregular sleep patterns and respiratory trouble. A machine used for their treatment should not only be capable but extremely convenient too. EPR adjusts the inhalation and exhalation pressures delivered by the device. It is relatively easy to set EPR and equally easy to turn it off at will. There are three levels of EPR settings. While level 1 corresponds to the least deviation in inhalation and exhalation pressures, level 3 denotes the maximum change.
The TiControl feature is the most crucial monitoring part of the ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto. It compares the patterns of inhalation and exhalation to the TiMax and TiMin settings on the device. (TiMax denotes the maximum length of inhalation while TiMin corresponds to the minimum length of inhalation.) Those suffering from COPD and other serious breathing issues tend to have an arbitrary change from inhalation to exhalation. The TiControl feature intended to stop this uneven change in the breathing cycle.
Advanced Bi-Level Therapy
It is essential to understand that an ideal sleep apnea treatment machine should not provide uniform pressure throughout the night. Instead, it should automatically adjust the pressure as and when required as per the need of the patient. The advanced bi-level therapy feature of the ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto makes this possible. This has significant plus points that you are saving energy and, at the same time, avoiding unnecessary invasive therapy.
Automatic Data Recorder
This fantastic feature of the ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto is exceptionally beneficial for the patient and the caregiver. It allows the patient data on the device to be downloaded and copied into an SD card. The machine's onboard memory can hold at least 30 data sessions and compliance information of up to 365 sessions.

I received this within 1 week of ordering. Great response. Packaging is fine nothing special. They provided a new filter, new resiviour, and hose, and looks like a brand new plug. The device works great, therapy was already programmed into the device just had to plug and play. Highly recommend buying from BemesOnline.
Used 2 nights now, seems to be great! Much quieter than my previous Phillips Respironics dreamstation machine.
