A BiPAP or BPAP in simple words is a ventilator used to facilitate breathing. Biphasic Positive Airway Pressure (BIPAP) controls ventilation of respiratory system and allows unrestricted voluntary breathing at any moment of the ventilation cycle.

It comes with a mask and tube that connects the machine with patient’s mouth or nose. As we know the ventilator’s working principle, that is, to use pressure and push air into your lungs. Based on the settings, BiPAP machine opens the lungs, improving the level of oxygen in the blood and decreasing the carbon dioxide.
