Bi-level Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP)

Bi-level positive airway pressure ventilation cycles between a higher inspiratory positive airway pressure (IPAP) and a lower expiratory positive airway pressure (EPAP). The lower pressure during exhalation makes breathing easier.

BiPAP is commonly used in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea, sleep-disordered breathing associated with congestive heart failure, in conditions associated with hypoventilation such as central sleep apnea, Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome (OHS), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), neuromuscular disease, and restrictive pulmonary diseases.
