Because our innovations are inspired by patients, the bi-level ventilator BiPAP A40 has been designed to combine ease-of-use and comfort with technological innovations that adapt to a patient’s condition to deliver enhanced therapy.
Based on a familiar platform, BiPAP A40 comes with well known and clinically proven Philips Respironics technology such as Auto-Trak, AVAPS and a Dry Box humidifier design. The device is capable of non invasive and invasive pressure ventilation, up to 40 cm H2O, providing treatment for chronic insufficiency respiratory patients.
BiPAP A40 can provide autonomy and increased support to patients, thanks to its specifically designed battery module.
The device features AVAPS-AE, an innovative mode of ventilation designed to help clinicians during titration process, while maintaining comfort and therapy optimization.This new ventilation mode helps in providing long-term therapy compliance regardless of changes to the body position, sleep stages and respiratory mechanics.
In AVAPS-AE mode, the device monitors the patient's upper airway resistance and automatically adjusts the delivered EPAP required to maintain an airway. Simultaneously, BiPAP A40 automatically adjusts pressure support to maintain a target tidal volume and when the breath rate is set to Auto, the device will adjust the back-up breath rate based on the patient's spontaneous respiratory rate.
