What is VPAP/BiPAP Machine?
BiPAP machines (also known as the BiLevel Positive Airway Pressure) perform similarly to CPAP machines. In comparison to CPAP machines, BiPAP machines deliver two varied pressure settings to their users, one for inhalation and the other for exhalation. When you breathe in with the help of your BiPAP machine, the pressure will gradually rise to your prescribed setting and will decrease at the time of exhalation for easier breathing.
Many people cannot tolerate CPAP therapy and have been prescribed this specific therapy by their physician. Other names for bilevel machines include BiPAP and VPAP. These machines carry all of the same features and benefits as CPAP. It is best to talk with your physician before purchasing a BiPAP or VPAP machine, as these are often used to treat more severe cases of sleep apnea, or cases complicated by other respiratory illnesses. All BiPAP or VPAP machines are medical devices and require a prescription prior to purchase.

Why Should You Buy A BiPAP Machine?
The majority of people are prescribed APAP or CPAP machines unless a BiPAP machine has been recommended by their healthcare providers. So, here is a list of reasons why your healthcare provider may prescribe a BiPAP machine:
- Heavily Impaired Natural Breathing
- Obstructive, Central, or Complex Sleep Apnea
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD)
- Poor Breathing Postoperative
- Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome (OHS)
However, if you experience breathing issues or face difficulty breathing more often, then BiPAP machines may not be the right choice for you. In this case, your healthcare provider may recommend you a better form of ventilation.

To get rid of the gas and bloating, simply elevate the level of your head prior to falling asleep. If the problem still persists, consult your physician for advice.

BiPAP Vs CPAP Machine - Which Is Better?
