CPAP and BiPAP machines are types of positive airway pressure therapy that use compressed air to help patients breathe more easily while sleeping.
How CPAP helps:
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy allows patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) to breathe more easily while sleeping. The CPAP machine increases air pressure in the throat, preventing airways from collapsing when breathing in.
How BiPAP helps:
BiPAP machines have two pressure settings that allow for lower pressure levels during exhalation. They are helpful when sleep apnea is more severe or when another diagnosis, like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is made (COPD). The air pressure serves as a splint, preventing the muscles in the throat from collapsing and reducing obstructions.
