CPAP provides constant air pressure, while BiPAP offers two pressure settings. BiPAP machines can automatically switch between an inhalation pressure and a lower exhalation pressure.

A sleep specialist will recommend the right PAP therapy for you based on your sleep study results and individual needs.

Positive airway pressure (PAP) is one of the most common treatments for sleep apnea, a breathing disorder that affects approximately 10% to 40% of the population. The most common PAP treatment is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), but bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP or BPAP) may be a better option for some people.
