If so, be sure to speak with your equipment provider regarding Bi-Level Positive Air Pressure devices—also known as Bi-PAP. A bi-level device follows your breathing pattern and automatically reduces the air pressure level when you breathe out. Bi-Level devices are indicated for those patients who have high Nasal CPAP air pressure levels (generally greater than 10.0 cm H20), who are especially sensitive to air pressure levels, who have complaints of sinus pressure, or who complain of swallowing air.
Don’t let difficulty breathing out against the air pressure of CPAP discourage you from getting the treatment you need. Bi-Level devices are the proper “next step” to take if you are fighting the pressure. Call your home care dealer.
