BMC BiPAP Machines
A BiPAP machine is a non-invasive ventilator device that helps with breathing in a home or in a healthcare setting. If you are having trouble breathing, a BiPAP machine uses filtered, pressurised air/ventilation to push air into the lungs and open your airways. BiPAP provides a higher inspiratory positive airway pressure (IPAP) therefore supporting your breath you take in and a lower expiratory positive airway pressure (EPAP) allowing you to breathe out comfortably. Bilevel ST includes the timed delivery of a breath if breathing pauses occur.
Bilevel devices are non-invasive and deliver two distinct pressures, for inhalation and exhalation; the change in pressures leads to flow of air in and out of the lungs.
A BiPAP machine may help if you a have a medical problem or a respiratory condition that weakens your breathing. A BiPAP Machine or medical ventilation can be beneficial for the following medical conditions:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD)
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
- Central Sleep Apnea (CSA)
- Breathing related issues such as Obesity Hyperventilation Syndrome
- Asthma flare-up
- Poor breathing post-surgery
- Respiratory weakness requiring increased ventilation
- Neurological disease that disturbs breathing e.g. Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
A BiPAP machine is also a non-invasive means of support that can be used for patients who are in respiratory distress or patients with breathing restrictions.
If you have been tested and diagnosed with COVID-19, you need to follow the recommendation of the medical staff that provided the diagnosis. The therapy required to treat the worst cases of COVID-19 is very complex and requires medical expertise and clinically trained staff to administer it. Your medical professional has the expertise to decide what kind of therapy is required for each patient.
