By programming itself to the pattern of your breathing whilst you are still awake this sophisticated device is able to respond if and when you stop breathing by breathing for you until your body naturally responds and continues by itself. This device is suitable for sufferers of Cheyne-Stokes Respiration and / or Central Sleep Apnea without a cardiac component.
AirCurve 10 CS PaceWave
The AirCurve™ 10 CS PaceWave™ is indicated to stabilise the ventilation of patients exhibiting central sleep apnoea (CSA), mixed sleep apnoea and periodic breathing, with or without obstructive sleep apnoea. In CSA, normal breathing can be affected by reduced sensitivity to abnormal oxygen levels in the blood, leading to over-compensation in signals sent from the brain to the lungs to slow down (reduce tidal volumes) or speed up (increase tidal volumes) and breath rates and sizes.
CSA is different to obstructive sleep apnoea, 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 apnoea and this device will treat both.
AirCurve 10 CS PaceWave is an adaptive servo-ventilator (ASV) with two modes: ASVAuto and ASV.
The PaceWave algorithm is available in the AirCurve 10 CS PaceWave device
