Respironics is pleased to announce the release of the BiPAP® M Series with Bi-Flex® product line which includes the state-of-the-art BiPAP Auto M Series and the BiPAP Plus M Series sleep therapy devices. Developed as an alternative for patients who have difficulty complying with Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) devices, BiPAP devices continue to be reliable, comfortable choices for adults who have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
The BiPAP Auto M Series is the ideal tool for treating non-compliant CPAP users. Respironics is especially proud to release this unique product as it completes the M Series line, and gives providers a full range of therapy devices for a full range of patients.
BiPAP Auto combines auto adjusting bi-level pressure delivery with the breath-by-breath pressure relief of Bi-Flex, all in the small, sleek, easy-to-use M Series design. A proactive, multi-level algorithm analyzes several parameters to monitor and respond to a patient's breathing. It determines how much of a response is necessary to eliminate events and position the patient with a more appropriate pressure, as well as compensate for elevated leak levels and variable breathing.
Bi-Flex technology 'softens' the airflow in inhalation and exhalation to provide increased pressure relief, making breathing more comfortable for the patient. Digital Auto-Trak™ Sensitivity works with Bi-Flex and the auto algorithm to track each breath so that the device can cycle between inspiratory and expiratory pressure based on the patient's breathing. The result is more natural and comfortable therapy.
The BiPAP Auto M Series also features our new 'smart ramp' technology that enables patients to benefit from the added comfort of ramp without risk of impacting therapy. The smart ramp technology will detect and treat events while ramp is activated.
When combined with Encore® Pro SmartCard®, BiPAP Auto M Series can record events like snores, apneas, hypopneas and leak to provide insight into patients' therapy. An optional integrated heated humidifier features an easy-turn dial to get the right setting and does not need to be reset if therapy is temporarily suspended. Plus, the hidden water chamber is easy to use and fill, and delivers continuous humidification throughout the night.
The BiPAP Plus M Series provides bi-level therapy with the comfort of Bi-Flex plus basic compliance data for easy phone-in reporting by patients.
Users will find the products easy to operate, with three primary control buttons and additional options for the proactive patient. Their small size allows for easy travel, even as carry-on baggage when flying.
