[Invasive ventilation. Classification, technique a... [Ugeskr Laeger. 1996] - PubMed result: "BiPAP/APRV can be described as a pressure controlled continuous high flow positive airway pressure system with a time-cycled change between a high inspiratory pressure level and a lower expiratory pressure level. Due to highly
sensitive valves placed in the inspiratory and expiratory part of the system,
unrestricted spontaneous breathing is possible at any moment of the mechanically supported ventilatory cycle. During invasive ventilation BiPAP offers potential advantages by allowing unrestricted spontaneous breathing thus reducing the need for sedation and facilitating weaning."
