CPAP and BIPAP

CPAP and BIPAP:

CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) consists of a generator, a hose for connection and a mouthpiece or a mask to be worn by the patient. It keeps the airway open by giving continuous mild air.

BIPAP (bi-level positive airway pressure) it is similar to CPAP but an advantage is that it allows patients to inhale (to breathe in) and exhale (to breather out) at two different pressures which are resultantly more comfortable and the patient becomes more compliant.
