Term Definition
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)

One of the most commonly used forms of noninvasive ventilation, CPAP increases the pressure of the air in the lungs for the whole time someone is using the machine. This is helpful for people who have weak airways that get too small at times (as with obstructive sleep apnea).
