Those struggling with traditional CPAP therapy due to uncomfortable air pressure may find a solution in the ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto B-Level Machine. The AirCurve manages pressure for both inhalation and exhalation to best fit the user’s breathing pattern. This offers a new opportunity to achieve CPAP compliance with comfort.
Features and Benefits of ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto
Starting CPAP therapy can be difficult. Many users will have a hard time adjusting to wearing a mask and to breathing pressurized air while they sleep. Because of the discomfort, many users will abandon CPAP therapy altogether.
Fortunately, solutions like the ResMed AirCurve provide alternative approaches to CPAP therapy to help users sleep more comfortably. The features and benefits of the AirCurve offer more than just control during breathing. The machine includes other conveniences that will make the AirCurve an essential and welcome part of your bedtime routine.
Because cleaning and maintaining your BiPAP machine is an important part of your nightly CPAP therapy, the ResMed AirCurve is designed for simple assembly and disassembly. Basic cleaning procedures are provided in the user guide and the filters are disposable, so maintaining your BiPAP machine is always easy to do.
Noisy machines are one of the primary complaints from CPAP users. But, with only 27 dBA, the ResMed AirCurve offers quiet performance all night long. The Easy-Breathe Motor maintains this reduced noise operation using sound abatement foam to absorb vibrations. As a result, you and your bed partner can sleep peacefully.
One of the most useful features of the AirCurve is the automated pressure settings. The AirCurve 10 VAuto adjusts intuitively between pressure settings so you never have to make pressure adjustments yourself. Both exhaled and inhaled breathing are adjusted automatically to fit your comfort level. The AirCurve 10 can also be configured to a traditional, fixed pressure setting.
Ease of Use
The ResMed AirCurve offers easy-to-use controls for even the most novice users. Simple dials and buttons deliver intuitive functions and an easy to read display screen offers clear information quickly and easily in user-friendly graphics.
For users who are more tech-savvy, the Bluetooth connectivity offers additional benefits for collecting sleep data and troubleshooting issues.
If a user experiences side effects from CPAP therapy such as a sore throat or nasal soreness, they can use the humidifier to add moisture to the dry pressurized air. The built-in humidifier ensures that every breath is enhanced with moisture for soothing relief that minimizes morning side-effects of sleep apnea treatment.
The Heated Humidifier is built-in and cannot be removed. The Water Chamber, however, can be removed, and the ResMed Side Cover can be connected. This is a great option when traveling, and also reduces the overall length of the AirCurve 10 Machine.

Customer Reviews for the ResMed AirCurve 10 VAuto VPAP
"I have had this machine for a week or two now and It makes me happy. I sleep through the night and have felt better every day."
"Great quiet machine" - Review by Dr. Rick
"I was replacing a 12-year-old machine by Respironics. This machine is extremely quiet. The menu system on the unit is intuitive, and it allows different settings for the user. It syncs with an app on my iPhone so I can see the quality, duration and issues with treatment. There is even a summary report that I can give to my doctor."
"ResMed AirCurve BiPap 10 is a very excellent machine." - Review by Don
"I have only had my machine for one month, but it is so much more comfortable because of the pillow instead of the full face mask. The machine helps you to adjust your mask each night when you put it on; it tells you, so it does not leak."
