AirCurve™ 10 bilevel machines include two pressure level settings. Higher pressure when you inhale, and a lower pressure that makes it easier to exhale.
Each machine also gives you access to myAir™ – a free app that provides a nightly sleep score, coaching and more to help you stay on track.
AirCurve 10 machines provide enhanced settings designed to make sleep apnea treatment more comfortable. Each model also offers myAir access to help you stay on track throughout your sleep apnea treatment journey.
Let’s take a look at the differences between AirCurve 10 S, VAuto, and ASV models.
AirCurve 10 S
This fixed-pressure bilevel machine is for obstructive sleep apnea, meaning it delivers one consistent pressure for inhalation and another for exhalation that is set by your doctor
AirCurve 10 VAuto
This auto-adjusting bilevel machine is for obstructive sleep apnea, which means it changes airflow pressure levels for both inhalation and exhalation based on your specific needs.
Individual breathing patterns
AirCurve 10 ASV
Designed for central sleep apnea, this bilevel adjusts to your individual breathing patterns. It’s clinically-proven algorithm, called Adaptive Servo-Ventilation (ASV), detects when you stop breathing and provides a breath.
AirCurve 10 ASV is a safe and effective form of therapy for people with central sleep apnea. It uses an adaptive servo-ventilation algorithm that detects when you stop breathing and provides you with breath. ASV therapy is contraindicated for people with chronic, symptomatic heart failure (NYHA 2-4) with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF ≤ 45%) and moderate to severe predominant central sleep apnea. Talk to your doctor for more information.
Your AirCurve 10 machine has been set up for your needs by your medical equipment supplier – the CPAP store where you picked up your equipment. But it’s understandable you may want to make small adjustments based on your comfort needs. Here are some tips on how to adjust the comfort settings.
On your AirCurve 10 machine, rotate the dial to highlight My Options and press the dial to see your current settings. From here, you can personalize your options.
The humidifier moistens the air and is designed to make your therapy more comfortable. With the Climate Control enhanced Auto setting 3, both temperature and humidity are automatically pre-set at levels designed for maximum comfort; all you have to do is plug it in and press Start.
You can also manually set the Humidity Level to Off or between 1 and 8, where 1 is the lowest humidity setting and 8 is the highest humidity setting. (Note: if you’re using a ClimateLineAir™ heated tube, you will need to turn the Climate Control setting on your device from “Auto” to “Manual” in order to access the humidity level setting.)
If you’re getting a dry nose or mouth, turn up the humidity.
If you’re getting any moisture in your mask, turn down the humidity.
How to adjust humidity:
Ramp Time is designed to make the beginning of therapy more comfortable and is the period during which the airflow pressure increases from a low start pressure to your prescribed treatment pressure. You can set your Ramp Time to Off, from 5 to 45 minutes.

ResMed has observed that prolonged and repeated use of an ozone device may eventually cause internal damage to a ResMed machine, leading to an increase in motor noise. The ResMed limited warranty excludes damage to ResMed machines caused by use of ozone devices.
While ResMed masks are designed to be compatible with most ResMed machines, it is best to confirm compatibility for your specific mask to determine the correct mask setting for your machine.
Here’s a list of recommended compatible masks:
