    AirCurve™ 10 CS PaceWave™

    The AirCurve 10 CS PaceWave is an adaptive servo-ventilator specifically designed to treat patients exhibiting central sleep apnea (CSA), mixed sleep apnea and periodic breathing, with or without obstructive sleep apnea. In central sleep apnea, normal breathing stops because communication between the brain and the body has been affected. CSA is different to obstructive sleep apnea, which is caused by a blockage in the upper airway. Your clinician will advise you if you have CSA. Some people have both types of sleep apnea and this bilevel machine will treat both.

    Featuring the most clinically studied ASV algorithm – PaceWave – the machine also features a built-in HumidAir™ humidifier and built-in wireless connectivity**, so your healthcare professional can stay more connected to your therapy progress than ever before.

    **Wireless communication depends on network availability

    ASVAuto mode

    ASVAuto mode adapts to your ventilatory and upper airway stability needs on a breath-by-breath basis. By treating central breathing disorders with auto-adjusting pressure support, and upper airway obstruction with auto-adjusting expiratory positive airway pressure (EPAP), the machine rapidly stabilises breathing and blood gases helping improve sleep quality.1,2

    ASV mode

    In ASV mode, the EPAP can be manually titrated to set the optimal fixed EPAP to keep your upper airway open.

    Other features

    • Easy-Breathe pressure waveform mimics the wave shape of your 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 HumidAirTM humidifier and the ClimateLineAirTM heated air tube and is designed to deliver constant, comfortable temperature and humidity.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: ASV therapy is contraindicated in patients with chronic, symptomatic heart failure (NYHA 2-4) with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF ≤ 45%) and moderate to severe predominant central sleep apnea.
