What are the Differences between Auto CPAP and Auto BiPAP?

  • Depending on your age
  • Auto Bipap is highly recommended for those above 50
  • For those under 50, Both Auto CPAP and Auto Bipap are recommended. Still, Auto Bipap tends to be more comfortable.

This article focuses on treating sleep apnea with the iBreeze Auto CPAP and Auto Bipap.

CPAP therapy is a broad term that covers many forms of positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy.

Auto CPAP machines are currently the most common CPAP machines in existence. For people below the age of 50, our experience is that Auto CPAP is generally tolerable and very possible to find success with.

In our experience, Auto Bipaps tend to be much more comfortable for folks above 50 than Auto CPAPs. The exhaling portion of breathing with Auto Bipaps is less effortful.

If we were to give a very rough comparison between breathing with Auto CPAP and Auto Bipap, the difference in breathing is around 30-40% better.

Continuous pressure, versus bi-level pressure

  • Auto CPAP uses the same pressure for inhale and exhale
  • Auto Bipap uses different pressure for inhale and exhale
  • Breathing with Auto Bipap tends to be easier

When a CPAP machine operates, the inhale and exhale pressure are the same.

But a Bipap machine enables a gentle difference between the inhale and exhale pressures. The overall outcome is that it’s easier to breathe with Bipap therapy.

Both a CPAP and Bipap can be used to treat sleep apnea, but the Bipap machines tend to just be more comfortable to use. This increased comfort can be crucial for some people who find it hard to successfully adopt CPAP therapy.

In other words, those who have tried CPAP therapy in the past, and have not yet been successful, are good candidates to give Bipap therapy a try. This is especially so if you are 50 years old and above.

  • Use Cases
    • Auto CPAP (APAP): Typically prescribed for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) where the airway collapses during sleep.
    • Auto BiPAP: Can be used to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) as well. Also used for a variety of respiratory conditions, including central sleep apnea, complex sleep apnea, and other respiratory disorders where the patient may have difficulty breathing out against a continuous pressure.
