What is AutoEPAP?
AutoEPAP (automatic expiratory positive airway pressure) automatically adjusts a patient’s expiratory pressure in response to flow limitations or obstruction of the upper airway.
AutoEPAP is now available in the United States, and already in use in other markets. It’s an option when in Astral’s iVAPS (intelligent Volume-Assured Pressure Support) mode that automatically adapts to a patient’s changing pressure needs as their respiratory disease progresses.
In addition to AutoEPAP, Astral users worldwide can now:
- Easily change interfaces: Patients can easily change between a mouthpiece and a full face, nasal or pillows mask from a single limb circuit.
