What is the difference between CPAP and BiPAP machines?

CPAP = Continuous Positive Airway Pressure is a compressed air compressor to widen the airways to treat snoring and sleep apnea byThe level of air pressure released is equal in both inhalation and exhalation. Regardless of whether the machine is manual or automatic, if it is a manual (fixed pressure) machine, the pressure will be the same throughout the night. But if it's an Auto machine, the pressure will keep changing according to our snoring condition. But the pressure will be the same in the inhalation and exhalation.

machine part BiPAP (Bi-level Positive Airwar Pressure) It is a 2-stage air compressor.Can set the air pressure level in the inhalation and exhalation strokes to have different values For example, while inhaling, the pressure is 15 cmH2O, while exhaling, the pressure is 6 cmH2O, etc. It is used for people who suffer from snoring or sleep apnea that requires a high treatment pressure, such as 15 cmH2O or more. Set the exhalation pressure to be low, making it easier to exhale. The BiPAP can also be used as a ventilator in patients with other respiratory diseases such as emphysema. weak lung muscles or pharyngeal patients, etc. Most BiPAP machines can be converted to CPAP mode.
