BiPAP Therapy

BiPAP stands for bilevel positive airway pressure and is a way of introducing air into the upper airway through a nasal mask. It's similar to CPAP but there are two different pressure settings. It is generally more comfortable than CPAP and is used for adults and children who have difficulty tolerating CPAP. At Jefferson's widely acclaimed Sleep Disorders Center, our sleep medicine specialists can accurately diagnose your condition.

BiPAP therapy is used to treat more than just sleep apnea; it's also useful if you have various lung disorders. The advanced BiPAP machines are able to detect how much air pressure you need and provide the adequate amount of pressure as you inhale and exhale.
