The new bi-level ventilator BiPAP A40 from Philips Respironics features a fully automatic ventilation mode, designed to support the smooth transition of treatment from hospital to home, according to the company.
“One of the key benefits of the BiPAP A40 is an innovative ventilation mode called AVAPS-AE, which helps to guide clinicians during the initial titration of therapy, while maintaining comfort and improving efficacy for the patient,” said Mats Dahlquist, general manager international, Philips Home Healthcare Solutions. “This new ventilation mode automatically maintains airway patency while delivering the correct level of ventilation each user requires, whatever their body position or sleep stage. AVAPS-AE mode also helps to guide clinicians during the initial titration of therapy, while providing long term comfort and assuring therapy compliance.”
In addition to the introduction of AVAPS-AE, the BiPAP A40 features a unique battery module design, which provides users with an enhanced level of autonomy that increases support when traveling, or in the case of a power shortage.
