When it comes to breathing assistance machines, many people immediately think of the CPAP machine.  In actuality, there are three different devices for breathing assistance that are all relatively common. CPAP therapy, more commonly referred to as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, is the most recognized form of breathing assistance.
VPAP therapy, variable positive airway pressure, is a lot like CPAP therapy; the components of the machine and the basic function are the same. Automatic positive airway pressure, APAP, is the most up to date breathing assistance machine.
It is extremely important for people suffering from breathing problems to know the different kinds of machines that are available for assistance.


CPAP therapy is most commonly used by people who suffer from sleep apnea; both obstructive apnea and mixed apnea. The machine is equipped with pressure sensors and a computer that work together to constantly monitor how much a person is breathing. The mask is worn on the face when sleeping, and air from the machine is pushed through the tube into the mask.
Instead of emitting a constant stream of pressurized air like CPAP machines do, variable positive airway pressure machines only emit the air that is required for the user.
When a person is having difficulty breathing, the pressure is increased; it decreases when the pressure is not needed as much.


The air pushed in through the mask has enough pressure to keep the airway open while sleeping. The machine registers the inspirations and expirations of the sleeper, and delivers different amounts of air during different periods of the night.
Keeping the airway full and open reduces the risk of any obstructions that could cause the cessation or stopping of airflow during sleep.
