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:
Unbelievable service! We were a little apprehensive making such a large purchase online but due to this company having such a great rating with the BBB we decided to take a chance because the prices were the cheapest we could find anywhere, especially with their price match policy. We placed our order and had a couple items for which we requested a price match, which was honoured, no questions asked! Our order was placed at 3:00 pm, by 4:05 pm we received the Canada Post tracking information!!! Order was received 2 days later in perfect condition. One item did not fit properly so when we inquired as to how/if we could make an exchange we were advised That they would be sending the replacement size with a shipping label to return the item that had to be returned. Within 10 mins we received the tracking information!!!! We have never seen service like his before and we will definately be referring others to this company and we will be regular customers without a doubt!!!!! Would not shop anywhere else!!!!
best supplier in the country
this is by far the BEST cpap company to deal with. They allow 30 days to test the mask and if not suitable you get to try another and in my case it took 6 different masks to find the perfect one. They also match prices with any canadian company even online ones. Very friendly , knowledgable and helpful. I dealt with Melissa who is a gem. Thanks so much. I am now sleeping much better and am more alert during the day. Cpap Clinic has a dedicated customer in me
Juli, an excellent person to deal with. I was looking to upgrade my old machine and various accessories. I stopped by the CPAP clinic in Vaughan, and told Juli what I was looking for. I was very impressed by her knowledge. She took the time to explain the difference between the various new machines on the market; she is passionate and cares about her client. She was extremely helpful. The purchase was very smooth and service after the purchase was even better. She replied to all my questions and concerns very fast. And when she is not in that location, she leaves instructions with her co-worker about my requests. Amazing service. Thank you Juli.
