Learn More About Your New Machine

Perhaps one of the most versatile machines on the market, the Respironics BiPAP AVAPS machine is designed with flexibility and comfort in mind for those who need Noninvasive Ventilatory Support.

Average Volume Assured Pressure Support or AVAPS is a new method of delivering a consistent tidal volume through a unique algorithm which evaluates the patient's tidal volume over several breaths and then calculates the amount of pressure needed to reach the ideal tidal volume. The machine then gradually raises or lowers the IPAP pressure to achieve the proper pressure support.

Since the pressure changes smoothly, it does not compromise patient comfort or safety. Leaks are taken into account so that AVAPS delivers a true averaged patient tidal volume.

For maximum flexibility this machine may be run in the following modes: CPAP, Spontaneous (S), Spontaneous/Timed (S/T), Timed (T), and Pressure Control (PC).

The BiPAP AVAPS may benefit COPD and neuromuscular patients, obesity hypoventilation patients, as well as restrictive patients since it delivers the comfort and leak compensation of a pressure mode and the safety of a guaranteed volume. Also, because the algorithm compensates for changes in body position and maintains ventilation the algorithm supplies the right pressure at the right moment.

Advantages
  • Adjusts to changing variables and needs

  • Improves ventilation effectiveness and comfort

  • Optimizes safety by delivering an average tidal volume

  • Eases the titration process

In addition to the revolutionary algorithm, the BiPAP AVAPS sleep therapy system also offers other Respironics technologies such as optional integrated heated humidification and built in digital data storage using Respironics Encore SmartCard which may be accessed using the EncoreViewer Data Management software and a Respironics SmartCard Reader.

Universal Power

The Respironics Legacy BiPAP machines operate automatically between 110v and 240v AC. When traveling either inside or outside the USA, there are no switches to switch or fuses to change. The machine will automatically sense what voltage is needed and set itself to run on that power.

The user will need to adapt the plug that goes into the wall to fit the style of outlet socket that is being used. This is simply done with a Power Adapter Plug kit. This is the same type of plug adapter that would be used with a hair dryer or an electric shaver. World Traveler Power Adapter Plugs.

Respironics RP-DC Power Adapter

Respironics Legacy BiPAP machines come equipped with a DC plug on the back of the unit. This allows the user to connect the BiPAP to an external DC battery source. This cord is ideal for travel by recreational vehicle, boat, or any external DC batter that is equipped with a cigarette lighter plug.

This portable battery pack is an external lead acid battery that is the ultimate in power, portability and convenience. This battery kit comes with the Respironics battery and the Respironics RP-DC Power Adapter.
What does CPAP therapy do?
CPAP therapy provides a constant airflow which holds the airway open so that uninterrupted breathing is maintained during sleep. It is traditionally provided through a nasal mask that seals around the nose to maintain the pressure level.
Which CPAP masks work on which machines?

Any mask will work with any machine, with one important exception. The ResMed AirMini is only compatible with certain ResMed CPAP masks. Compatible masks for the AirMini are as follows:

  • ResMed AirFit™ N20 Nasal Mask
  • ResMed AirFit™ F20 Full Face
  • ResMed AirTouch™ F20 Full Face
  • ResMed AirFit™ P10 Nasal Pillow

When considering another CPAP, APAP or BiPAP machine from ResMed or any other manufacturer, mask compatibility extends to all brands. The AirMini uses non-standard tubing to connect the machine to the mask, and is the primary reason why other masks won't work with the AirMini. Despite this issue, many of our customers consider the AirMini to be an excellent machine.

What is ramp?
The ramp button on a machine is a feature that allows for a gradual pressure build-up to your prescribed pressure. The feature is enjoyed by those with high pressures because it eases up to their pressure.
