What is easy Breathe on ResMed AirCurve?
Easy-Breathe. Easy-Breathe pressure waveform mimics the wave shape of normal breathing and replicates it for your patients’ breathing comfort.
What is VAuto mode on BiPAP?
The AirCurve 10 VAuto is an auto-adjusting bilevel machine that uses the comfort of both the AutoSet™ algorithm and Easy-Breathe waveform in its VAuto algorithm to treat obstructive sleep apnea patients who can benefit from greater pressure support.
What is the difference between AirSense and AirCurve?
The ResMed AirSense and AirCurve series of machines are modern, easy to use, and a very popular option among CPAP patients. The AirSense 10 is available in CPAP, Elite, for Her, and AutoSet options, while the AirCurve is available in ASV, VAuto, 10S and 10ST options.
What happens if BiPAP pressure is too high?
But, if the pressure is too high you can experience other side effects like uncomfortable therapy, problems with your CPAP mask, nasal congestion, and fitful, interrupted sleep. BiPAP pressure settings deliver air at two different pressures: one for inhalation and another for exhalation.
How does the AirCurve 10 work?
The machine uses sensors to detect room temperature to provide optimal humidification levels while minimizing condensation. The AirSense 10 AutoSet features wireless technology to keep patients engaged in their care. This technology connects to ResMed’s cloud-based management system, MyAir.

How do you set the pressure on a BiPAP machine?
Use the Heat button to increase the ramp pressure and the Ramp button to decrease the ramp pressure. Your ramp pressure is designed to start your machine at a lower setting and then slowly increase to a higher setting. This feature will allow you more comfort when you are in the first stages of sleep.
When should you increase IPAP and EPAP?
4.3. 2.2 IPAP and EPAP should be increased (according to the criterion in Recommendation 4.3. 2.1) if at least 1 obstructive apnea is observed for patients <12 years or if at least 2 obstructive apneas are observed for patients ≥12 years (Consensus).
What CPAP pressure is considered high?
Your CPAP pressure settings are measured in centimeters of water pressure, or cmH2O. Most CPAP machines are able to go as high as 25 cmH2O, but that is far too high for the average sleep apnea sufferer. While the average setting is 10 cmH2O, your setting will likely fall anywhere between 6 and 15 cmH2O.
What’s the difference between the AirCurve 10 and the AirSense 10?
Is ResMed a CPAP or BiPAP?
ResMed is a pioneer of positive airway pressure (PAP) treatment, offering a wide variety of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), automatic positive airway pressure (APAP) and bilevel therapy devices.
What is the normal IPAP and EPAP?
Recommendations for Limits of IPAP, EPAP, and PS Settings: The recommended minimum starting IPAP and EPAP should be 8 cm H2O and 4 cm H2O, respectively.
What happens when you increase EPAP?
Increasing the IPAP will clear more CO2 whereas increasing the EPAP will improve oxygenation (in the same fashion as increasing CPAP pressures improve oxygenation). Patients who are intolerant of high EPAP levels may benefit from increasing their IPAP.
