Parameters of APAP Mode
The APAP machine offers 2 therapy modes, APAP (Auto-CPAP) mode and CPAP mode.
APAP mode is the major therapy mode of iBreeze APAP machine. When APAP mode is used, the device can automatically adjust air pressure value to fit the use’s changing breathing patterns, ensuring an unobstructed airway while maintaining maximum comfort.
P Max: 4-20cmH2O (≥P Min)
The maximum pressure value the machine can deliver during therapy.
P Min: 4-20cmH2O (≤P Max)
The minimum pressure value the machine can deliver during therapy.
R-Care: OFF/ON (recommended to select OFF)
OFF: Pressure value to start the therapy will be the value of P Min.
ON: Pressure value to start the therapy will be the average pressure value of the lower pressure values that take 95% of the time when the unit was used for the last 7 days.
When APAP mode is used, P Max and P Min should be chosen so the therapy pressure levels are limited and will auto change between the highest pressure level (P Max) and the lowest pressure level (P Min).
If the parameter of P Ramp is set, the value to start the therapy will be the value of P Ramp.
When CPAP mode is used, the device can deliver a fixed pressure value to the airway. This is a more traditional way of treating sleep apnea.
In Comfort settings, 19mm hose should be selected if the customer uses the tubing that comes with the unit.
