Average Volume Assured Pressure Support (AVAPS)

AVAPS adapts to changes in respiratory system characteristics to deliver a target tidal volume that is set by the operator. The device will adjust the pressure support to assure that the target tidal volume is met despite variability in patient effort, airways resistance and lung or chest wall compliance.

AVAPS is typically used in patients with chronic hypoventilation such as those with Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome (OHS), neuromuscular diseases, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
