BiPAP machines are designed with a dual pressure settings, which allows you to get more air in and out of your lungs so you can breathe more easily and regularly throughout the night.

CPAP Bilivels & BiPAP FAQ

Everything you need to know about CPAP Bilivels & BiPAP

What is BiPAP and how does it differ from a standard CPAP machine?

BiPAP stands for Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure. Unlike CPAP, which delivers a constant air pressure, BiPAP provides two different pressure levels: Higher pressure for inhalation (breathing in) to overcome airway obstructions and Lower pressure for exhalation (breathing out) for easier breathing out. Think of it as boosting your inhalation and relaxing your exhalation, making BiPAP suitable for people with more complex breathing issues like central sleep apnea.

What is the difference between a CPAP, a BiPAP, and a Bilevel CPAP?

While all help with sleep apnea, they differ in pressure delivery: CPAP delivers constant pressure throughout your sleep cycle, good for simple sleep apnea cases. BiPAP/Bilevel CPAP provides two separate pressures: higher for inhaling and lower for exhaling, suitable for complex sleep apnea or those struggling with exhaling on CPAP. Think of CPAP as steady support and BiPAP as adaptive assistance.

Who is BiPAP recommended for over a standard CPAP?

BiPAP is typically recommended for individuals who need high levels of air pressure, those who have difficulty exhaling against CPAP’s constant pressure, or patients with complex sleep-related breathing problems. It is particularly beneficial for those with conditions like central sleep apnea, severe obstructive sleep apnea, COPD, and other respiratory or heart conditions that affect breathing.

What are the benefits of BiPAP over a standard CPAP?

Benefits include improved sleep quality, reduced daytime sleepiness, and a decreased risk of chronic health problems related to untreated sleep apnea. The customized pressure adjustments of BiPAP ensure tailored therapy, enhancing patient compliance and comfort.

How is pressure adjusted in a BiPAP?

In a BiPAP machine, pressure is adjusted through two distinct settings: IPAP for inhalation and EPAP for exhalation. These settings can be programmed based on the user’s needs and may automatically adjust to the user's breathing patterns or be set to switch at timed intervals. This flexibility helps accommodate varying respiratory requirements throughout sleep.

What is the difference between a BiPAP and a mechanical ventilator?

BiPAP is a less invasive therapy using a mask to deliver two levels of air pressure, mainly for sleep apnea and similar conditions. Mechanical ventilators, more complex and invasive, are used in hospitals for severe respiratory failure or under anaesthesia, offering extensive respiratory support in critical care.
