CPAP is the acronym for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. CPAP therapy provides a gentle, constant flow of air at a set pressure into the airway to ensure that the airway stays open through the night. BIPAP (Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure) machines deliver air flow to the airway at a certain pressure in the same manner as a CPAP, but they have different pressures for the patient's inhalation and exhalation. Inhalation pressures are higher and keep the patient's airway open, but exhalation pressures are lower to make breathing out against the airflow easier for patients.
Your doctor might prescribe oxygen if your lungs are not getting enough oxygen to your blood (a condition called hypoxemia). The air you breathe every day contains 21 percent oxygen. Prescription oxygen is close to 100 percent pure oxygen. Because of this, it is considered a drug and must be prescribed by your doctor. Oxygen is not addictive and causes no side effects when used as prescribed. Your doctor will prescribe a specific amount of oxygen that is right for you. Home oxygen can help promote your independence and make it easier and safer for you to complete daily living activities.
Many CPAP, BiPAP, and Oxygen users don't realize that most of the supplies associated with these therapies are designed to be disposable. Masks, tubing, filters, and headgear are not designed to last for an extended period of time. Using them past their recommended life span can actually jeopardize your therapy. Delicate silicone mask cushions can develop leaks, clogged filters can allow dust and pollen to be delivered into your airway, and over-stretched headgear can require over-tightening which in turn can cause pressure point pain.
