    BiPAP Machines
     An overview of bilevel positive airway pressure machines.

     One of the many treatments of sleep apnea is the bilevel positive airway pressure machine, or BiPAP (also known as VPAP) . BiPAP machines are similar to their popular cousins CPAP machines, however, there are some fundamental differences that are present in the BiPAP machine that can make it a more attractive option to certain patients.

     The BiPAP machine is similar in purpose to the CPAP machine: to help ease breathing in a patient suffering from sleep apnea by forcing pressurized air down the patients airway and preventing the collapse of the tissues in the throat. However, the method that the BiPAP machine uses differs significantly from the method that a CPAP machine uses in that the BiPAP machine is able to vary the pressure that is being administered: when the patient exhales, the pressure is lowered, and when the patient inhales, the pressure increases. This allows for the patient to have an easier time breathing, especially if the patient had previous complaints about uncomfortable breathing due to the continuous pressure administered from a normal CPAP machine. Because the BiPAP machine lessens the pressure when the patient exhales, the patient has a much more comfortable experience with the apparatus than if he/she was using a CPAP machine.

     A BiPAP machine is best used by someone who is currently using a CPAP machine at a high pressure setting. If the pressure is too high, the patient may find that exhaling is not only uncomfortable, but almost impossible.

     Some users of CPAP machines also report feeling claustrophobic due to the constant pressure to the face and the difficulty in exhaling. This is usually remedied when the patient switches to a BiPAP machine. BiPAP machines, like CPAP machines, are mostly used to treat obstructive sleep apnea, though when used in conjunction with other form of treatment, can also be used to treat forms of central sleep apnea. BiPAP machines have been found to be detrimental to a patients condition if they are experiencing the effects of complex sleep apnea, however, and should be avoided for more effective means of treatment.

     One of the drawbacks of BiPAP machines compared to CPAP machines is the cost. Because of the required circuitry and the more advanced function of varying the pressure that the machine is administering, the BiPAP machine is intrinsically more expensive than a comparative CPAP machine. Also, some patients may feel uncomfortable with a mask and may wish to explore another option of treatment, such as positional therapy or surgery.

     Although BiPAP machines are more expensive than their CPAP counterparts, the benefits can be quite plentiful for the patient who feels uncomfortable using a CPAP machine. BiPAP machines may often feel and function similarly to a CPAP machine, but when compared side by side by a patient, the comfort afforded by the varying pressures is dramatic, and can be the difference between a restless night fighting with the machine that is supposed to make you sleep better and a wonderful nights sleep.
