The DreamStation AVAPS Bilevel therapy device is constructed for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). The DreamStation BiPAP Auto is set up to deliver two separate positive pressure levels: IPAP (Inspiratory Positive Airway Pressure) and EPAP (Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure). The DreamStation BiPAP Auto can also be set up as a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) device. Also, the device provides several unique features to help make your therapy more comfortable. The ramp feature allows you to lower the pressure gradually when you're trying to fall asleep. The air pressure will occasionally increase until your prescription pressure is reached. Also, the Flex comfort feature provides you with pressure relief when you exhale during therapy.
-Timed Pressure Support- A Bi-level therapy mode where breaths are machine-triggered and machine-cycled. T mode provides mandatory pressure-assist with bi-level pressures.
-Pressure Control Pressure Support- A Bi-level therapy mode where each breath is patient or machine-triggered and machine-cycled. PC mode is similar to S/T mode, except that all breaths are machine-cycled. This is a pressure-limited, machine or patient-triggered, time-cycled mode.
-Avaps-Average Volume Assured Pressure Support (AVAPS) is a feature available in the S, S/T, PC, and T modes. It helps patients maintain a tidal volume (VT) equal to or greater than the target tidal volume (Volume setting in the AVAPS) by automatically controlling the gradual change in pressure support (PS) provided to the patient. The rate of change is such that the patient is not aware of breath-to-breath pressure changes.
-BiFlex Comfort Feature- the device provides a comfort feature called Bi-Flex in S mode only. The Bi-Flex attribute adjusts therapy by inserting a small amount of pressure relief during the latter stages of inspiration and during active exhalation (the beginning part of exhalation). Bi-Flex levels of 1, 2, or 3 progressively reflect increased pressure relief that will take place at the end of inspiration and at the beginning of expiration.
-Ramp- The ramp feature is designed to offer lower pressures when activated and then gradually increase pressure over the set ramp period.
