BiPAP is called by-level positive pressure machine. This machine is used for those patients who do not need ventilators but have trouble breathing. This machine can be used in hospitals as well as at home.
Amazon India on Monday said that it has started sourcing 8,000 Oxygen Concentrator and 500 ByPAP (BiPAP) machines from Singapore in partnership with the NGO Temasek Foundation. Both these machines will provide relief to the seriously ill patients from the corona and save lives in difficult circumstances.
These machines, which are imported from India, will be donated in the hospitals of Oxygen Concentrator and BIPAP in different cities of the country. The first consignment of these machines from Singapore reached Mumbai on Sunday night and the remaining machines would be called by April 30. Amazon has said that the cost incurred in airlifting these machines from Singapore will be incurred in the procurement of the machines.
Due to the worsening condition of Corona in the country, the need for ventilators for patients has increased. Along with oxygen, the demand for ventilators is also very high but there is a decrease in its availability. To deal with this, many countries have announced to help India. Singapore has taken a big step in this and has also supplied a cryogenic oxygen tanker. Amidst the huge demand for ventilators, there is another machine which is saving the lives of Corona patients. The name of this machine is bypass which works completely like a ventilator.
This machine of great use
When there is difficulty in breathing, there are many machines in the medical field to improve it, in which the names of cipap, app and bypap machines come. BiPAP is called by-level positive pressure machine. This machine is used for those patients who do not need ventilators but have trouble breathing. This machine can be used in hospitals as well as at home. The bypass machine used at home is small and its size is like a toaster. This machine consists of a tube which attaches to the mask. This mask is applied on the nose and oxygen is supplied through it.
How do patients use
Bypass works like a ventilator. Actually, patients who cannot take oxygen inside themselves, become so weak that they cannot breathe or the infection is so deep that the lungs do not work properly, then the BiPap machine helps in this. This machine pushes oxygen inside the lungs with high pressure, so that if the patient is not able to breathe, he gets equal oxygen. This machine stretches the windpipe which causes less pressure on the lungs and the patient feels relieved.
Two-way setting in the machine
This machine is called bylevel because it works on two air pressure settings. Bypass machine creates more air pressure when the patient breathes. This is termed as Inspiratory Positive Airway Pressure or IPAP in the medical term. Under this process, oxygen enters the lungs rapidly and easily. In the second setting, when the patient exhales, this machine reduces the air pressure. This is called expiratory positive airway pressure or EPAP in medical terms. Some BiPap machines have a timer, which sets the number of times the patient has to breathe per minute.
