Term Definition
BiPAP

Bi-level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Pap) is one of the most commonly used forms of noninvasive ventilation respiratory support used to provide oxygen and pressure to the lungs to make it easier for a patient to breathe. Bi-PAP has two levels of airway pressure: a high pressure when the person breathes in and a low pressure when the person breathes out. A Bi-PAP machine can be programmed to cycle when the person breathes, or it can be set to a timed cycle.
