bi' -pap] BLPAP; Bi-PAP Two different pressure levels, for inhalation and exhalation, introduced through the nasal cavity to produce a pneumatic splint to prevent the upper airway from obstructing, but allowing for unefforted exhalation. Term: Definition: Description: . . . .
a machine which administers air under pressure via a nose mask to keep airways open and unobstructed. Respironics' (BiPAP®) units track the patient's breathing and lower the pressure during exhalation.
( BiPAP) - is a technique that is often used to treat sleep apnea and to provide airway support with a face mask rather than tracheal tube that is attached to a mechanical ventilator
treatment where air is blown through a mask placed over the nose in a way that allows control of air pressure both when you inhale and when you exhale. This helps prevent your airway from collapsing.
See CPAP. A CPAP device providing two measured pressure levels of continuous airflow: one level for inhalation and a lower level for exhalation.
