BiPAP AVAPS Noninvasive Ventilator

Respironics’ BiPAP AVAPS, a noninvasive ventilator for use in the home, features AVAPS (Average Volume Assured Pressure Support) technology. The AVAPS algorithm guarantees an average tidal volume by automatically adapting pressure support to meet the patient’s needs on a breath-by-breath basis. The algorithm achieves this by estimating the patient’s tidal volume over several breaths and then calculating the change in pressure needed to achieve the target tidal volume.
