The AirCurve® 10 ST-A provides effective non-invasive ventilation for patients with respiratory insufficiency such as neuromuscular disease, restrictive lung disorders, severe COPD and hypoventilation syndromes. It features iVAPS (intelligent Volume-Assured Pressure Support), ResMed’s proprietary mode that automatically adapts to each patient’s changing needs, and an intelligent Backup Rate (iBR)* that maximizes their opportunity to breathe spontaneously. The AirCurve® 10 ST-A includes both fixed and adjustable alarms for added safety and built-in cellular connectivity to AirView® for remote monitoring and the ultimate in patient care.
As part of the industry-leading ResMed Air Solutions family, the AirCurve® 10 ST-A features the same user-friendly controls, intuitive interface and color LCD screen as our other Air10™ devices. This device also displays each Patient’s SpO2 and pulse rate on screen before therapy has even begun, so you can personalize the ventilator settings to best suit their needs. Our popular Essentials mode makes therapy easier for patients who don’t want to fuss with settings changes – once they press Start, the ventilator takes care of the rest.
The amount of time required to set up and optimize NIV is less with iVAPS,2 allowing hospital staff to be more efficient managing NIV patients. Automatic titration of pressure support ventilation may hold promise for the setup of NIV in non-acute facilities in which teams are gaining experience in NIV, and also for home setups.
iVAPS improves blood gases (and other values) as effectively as standard pressure support modes.1,2,4 iVAPS also achieves a lower overall level of pressure support thanks to its automatic response.
Patients prefer iVAPS to standard pressure support ventilation,1 which can lead to longer use of non-invasive ventilation (NIV). iVAPS was found to help patients adhere to therapy 60 minutes longer per session than when treated with standard pressure support ventilation.
