About Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Philip Respironice BiPAP Home Ventilator
Bi-level Ventilator BiPAP A40 has been deisgned to combine ease-of-use and comfort with technological innovations that adapts to patient's condition to deliver enchanced therapy.
Based on a familiar platform, BiPAP A40 comes with well-known and clinically proven Philips Respironics technology such as Auto-Trak, AVAPS and a Dry Box humidifier design. The device is capable of non invasive and invasive pressure ventilation, up to 40 cmH2O, providing treatment for chronic insufficiency respiratory patients.
The device features AVAPS-AE, the first fully automatic ventilation mode, designed to help clinicians during titration process, while maintaining comfort and therapy optimization at the lowest pressures. This new innovative ventilation mode helps in providing long term therapy compliance regardless of changes to the body position, sleep stages and respiratory mechanics.
BiPAP A40 can provide autonomy and increased support to patients, thanks to its specifically designed battery module.
