Commonly Used Respiratory Therapy Equipment

CPAP

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is a respiratory therapy using a machine that produces mild air pressure to keep the airways open and oxygen flowing when the patient inhales. The CPAP machine blows air into a tube connected to a mask that fits over the patient’s nose or nose and mouth. The breathing mask is held comfortably in place with straps. A CPAP is typically used by people who have breathing disorders, such as sleep apnea. CPAP has also been known to be used to treat preterm infants with respiratory distress syndrome, bronchopulmonary dysplasia or infants whose lungs have not fully developed.

 

 

 

BiPAP

Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) is a respiratory therapy machine similar to a CPAP machine. BiPAP is a non-invasive form of therapy for patients suffering from sleep apnea. The BiPAP machine has separate settings for inhaling (ipap) and exhaling (epap), that allow the patient to easily breathe more air in and out of the lungs. Some BiPAP machines have the ability to measure the optimal number of breaths per minute the patient should be taking, and prompt the patient to breathe if the time between breaths exceeds the set limit. The machine temporarily increases the air pressure to correct the breath.

Nebulizer

Nebulizers deliver a medicated mist (inhaled) into the patient’s lungs for treatment of asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis and other respiratory ailments. Nebulizers use oxygen, compressed air, or ultrasonic power to convert the liquid medicine into a mist that can be inhaled by the patient via a mouthpiece. There are both mechanical and electrical nebulizers on the market. Mechanical versions include soft-mist inhalers and human-powered nebulizers. Electrical versions include vibrating mesh technology, atomizers, and ultrasonic wave nebulizers. Each nebulizer type provides benefits for effectiveness and ease of use.

Ventilator

Ventilators are machines that support breathing by mechanically moving breathable air into and out of the lungs for patients who are physically unable to breathe on their own. Ventilators move oxygen into the lungs and remove carbon dioxide from the body. They’re commonly used in hospitals during surgery to keep patients breathing while under general anesthesia. Ventilators can be used outside hospitals at long-term care facilities, and in homecare environments for continued life support. Ventilators are also used to treat serious lung diseases or other conditions that affect normal breathing.
