How BiPAP differs From CPAP

Chances are, if you or someone you know has been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea you probably are aware of what a CPAP Machine is and how it works. A less common relative to the CPAP therapy is BiPAP therapy. Though they may sound the same, and use similar technology, BiPAP machines are used to treat a patient who requires positive airway pressure and pressure support.

Bilevel positive airway therapy is used for treating problems such as pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and asthma.

When a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) system works, it provides a continuous level of air pressure in a spontaneously breathing patient. BiPAP also provides air pressure, but it also uses a time-cycled or flow-cycled change of the applied pressure level for in and out breaths.

At Aeroflow, we offer a wide array of breathing treatments, including BiPAP, CPAP, Ventilators, Nebulizers, and Oxygen. In the realm of BiPAP, we proudly carry the Trilogy Ventilator by Respironics. This ventilator is light, versatile, and easy to use.

Proper use of this ventilator with BiPAP therapy can result in a smooth and effective transition from a hospital or acute care setting to the home. Our team will also help you with any questions that you have regarding BiPAP Therapy and compliance. We have 24/7 support, and follow up plans for all patients of ours.

We also are approved for use by many private insurance companies as well as Medicare and Medicaid. This means that a Trilogy Ventilator and BiPAP therapy could be yours at little to no cost. If you are interested in getting one for yourself, feel free to give us a call! Our toll free number is 888-345-1780. You can also contact us on the web here. If you have any questions about your insurance, we can answer them over the phone, but we also have a handy qualify through insurance form which will help us determine your coverage as well!
