BiPAP and CPAP are both non-invasive ventilation therapies used in nursing practice to treat respiratory distress in patients. The choice between BiPAP vs CPAP therapy will depend on the individual patient’s needs and medical conditions.Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy is commonly used to treat obstructive sleep apnea and respiratory distress in premature infants. It involves delivering a constant level of positive air pressure to the patient’s airway during both inhalation and exhalation.
The positive air pressure helps to keep the patient’s airway open and prevent it from collapsing.
Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) therapy is often used to treat respiratory failure, such as in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
It delivers two levels of positive air pressure to the patient’s airway: a higher pressure during inhalation and a lowerpressure during exhalation.
Knowing BiPAP and CPAP machines ensures that patients receive the best possible care.
