What is VPAP?
A variable positive airway pressure (VPAP) machine is an auto-adjusting, bilevel breathing device made by ResMed. It is similar to a BIPAP machine, which provides two levels of pressure to match your natural inhalation and exhalation rhythm. A VPAP machine may be used to treat sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. Some people with lung disease and respiratory disorders may also benefit from using a VPAP machine. Each VPAP machine has two pressure levels – high and low – that can be adjusted manually or automatically during exhalation depending on the type of machine you choose.
The use of a breathing device at home is a life-saving treatment for people suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. People with sleep apnea experience repeated episodes of stopped breathing (apneic episodes) while sleeping with or without waking up. The S9 ResMed VPAP machines function as a non-invasive ventilator to prevent apneic episodes for a better night’s sleep.
