CPAP & BiPAP Machines
As you start browsing the options, you’ll find that CPAP and BiPAP machines are a common choice. While these products are fairly similar, there are some key differences in how they function. For example, a CPAP machine offers a single-pressure setting that stays consistent throughout the night. Many models come with a ramp feature that starts at a lower pressure and gradually increases to the prescribed level. Some users find an immediate burst of pressure to be overwhelming, so this comfort feature makes it more tolerable. Once the machine reaches the prescribed level, it’ll stay there for the rest of the night.
For users who can’t get past the singular pressure in a CPAP device, a BiPAP machine might be the better choice. These products come with two pressure settings, one is a lower setting for exhalation and another is the prescribed pressure for inhalation. This is ideal for those who have been prescribed a higher pressure strength. Oftentimes, exhaling against the incoming air can be hard to manage and feel like they’re having to force a breath out. When you add the lower pressure setting for exhaling, it’s much more bearable for the user. They’ll also get more air in and out of their lungs this way.
Home Oxygen Therapy
Another type of respiratory management you can consider is home oxygen therapy. Some examples include standard oxygen concentrators and portable oxygen concentrators. Whether you choose a stationary or a portable model, these products can be extremely effective in managing your respiratory condition. They work by taking in air from the surroundings, compressing it, filtering out the nitrogen, and delivering the purified oxygen back to the user.
