A BIPAP machine delivers 2 pressure , one for inspiration and one for exhalation. This device has Bi-Flex that is a comfort feature making the transition between the two pressures more comfortable.
Complex sleep apnea exists where central and obstructive sleep apnea occur in tandem and a servo-ventilator uses the EPAP pressure to treat the obstructive sleep apnea and it has an automatic IPAP pressure which provides the servo ventilation and reduces Central sleep apnea. This machine is called the advanced version as it also provides Automatic EPAP similar to an Automatic CPAP machine and makes this more adaptable to patients needs on a nightly basis.
Some patients only need to use a Spontaneous Timed (ST) machine to treat purely central apnea and the BIPAP Auto SV Advanced machine can be utilised for this. The BIPAP Auto Sv Advanced delivers one EPAP and one IPAP pressure whilst having a built in back up rate to machine assist with breathing when the patient has a central episode. It is called a times rate and the machine purely waits a set time and if no breath is detected it will deliver this for the patient.
The BIPAP Auto Sv Advanced machine is suitable for many patients and includes COPD, MND, Complex sleep apnea and purely central apnea.
The Humidifier is provided with this machine. The Humidifier will monitor room temperature and fluctuate the temperature of the heater plate according to room conditions. This will assist with reducing condensation that may occur in the cooler months and optimises the humidity level for the patient. The heated tube provides more comfort in the cooler months by heating the air that runs through it and also assists with optimising the humidity level and preventing condensation occuring.
The Encore Pro software and SD card allows for downloading of the machine and will report in depth data from its advanced event detection for the previous 7 days while recording extensive machine usage. The Encore Pro software will also deliver breath by breath data, showing events analysed, pressure and flow signals.
