Role Of Cpap and Bipap machines In Central & Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing stops and starts several times. If you are snoring loudly and feel tired even after a full night's sleep, you may be suffering from sleep apnea.

How CPAP Machines Useful In Treating Sleepapnea 

The Standard Sleep apnea treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is to use a machine that helps keep your airways open while you sleep. This can be accomplished with continuous positive pressure (CPAP) in which a constant flow of ambient air under pressure is provided via a face mask. There are also Portable CPAP travel devices.

How does CPAP work to treat sleep apnea and how much pressure does it take? The pressure setting of this airflow is often determined by a doctor based on your needs. This can be assessed as part of a sleep study or can be estimated based on your risk factors, such as your anatomy and your weight. Effective pressure control aims to prevent both apnea and snoring and should reduce apnea-hypopnea index (IAH) below five while improving other Sleep apnea symptoms associated with Sleep apnea. sleep. One type of associated therapy is AutoCPAP, or APAP, in which a range of pressures is provided by the devices Like BMC RESmart GII Auto CPAP, DeVilbiss Auto Cpap, 

ResMed Floton Auto CPAP. If resistance in the upper respiratory tract (soft palate or tongue base in the throat) is detected, the delivered pressure will automatically adjust to the prescribed limits.  

What Is BiPAP How It is Useful For Sleep Apnea?

A similar therapy is called bilevel, or BiPAP, but it differs significantly. BiPAP is a trademark abbreviation of the manufacturer Respironics for positive two-way pressure. (It's called the VPAP of the other major Manufacturer  Like ResMed. These are the Devices Available in ResMed -( ResMed Lumis 150 Vpap STA ApacResMed Lumis 100 Vpap S Apac)

 The "two-tier" component refers to the fact that there are actually two pressures that the machine can alternate. This allows you to inhale with higher pressure and exhale with slightly lower pressure.

This can help those who have trouble getting acclimated to CPAP. This can improve the swallowing of air (called aerophagia). It can also help with claustrophobia. A dual-level may be required when pressures are higher to improve comfort, especially at PAP pressures of 15 cm or more of water pressure. Apart from a different label or color, from the outside, the machine may not look very different from a CPAP. It still requires the same tube and masks like those used in CPAP treatment. However, it may be more effective in certain circumstances, such as those described above.

Which One to Choose CPAP or BiPAP to Treat My Sleep Apnea?

People with obstructive sleep apnea usually start CPAP or AutoCPAP treatment. It should be noted that BiPAP, at two levels, is more often used to treat central sleep apnea. This condition is characterized by breathing pauses without airway obstruction and is identified as part of a sleep study. This may occur more often in people who have had heart failure, a stroke, or in those who regularly use narcotic analgesics.

This can sometimes be caused by the CPAP itself, but this rarely persists beyond the first few months of use. The BiPAP device can be configured to compensate for these breathing pauses by performing additional breathing as needed. Some devices are quite sophisticated, varying the delivered airflow to compensate for respiratory and neuromuscular disorders that also affect breathing. These disorders include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other conditions.
