CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure, is a treatment that uses mild air pressure to keep the airways open. CPAP typically is used by people who have breathing problems, such as sleep apnea.
CPAP also may be used to treat preterm infants whose lungs have not fully developed. For example, doctors may use CPAP to treat infants who have respiratory distress syndrome or bronchopulmonary dysplasia
Non invasive ventilation is an evidence based approach to prevent hospital readmissions specifically targeting Chronic Respiratory Failure patients.
Individuals with COPD, Restrictive disorders, and neuromuscular disorders can also benefit from using non-invasive ventilation. YourCare is a leading provider with an extensive line of CPAP/BIPAP products.
