BiPAP study guide

The IPAP will always be Higher than the EPAP
On CPAP what will pressure do be constant during inhalation and exhalation
If you have ventilation problems you adjust IPAP
If you have oxygenation problems you adjust EPAP
What do you set on spontaneous mode EPAP and IPAP only
what do you set on timed mode IPAP, EPAP, BPM, and % IPAP
What is the purpose of an BiPAP to augment pt ventilation by supplying pressurized air through a mask
The pt's effort and difference btween IPAP and EPAP determine Tidal volume
The time intervals on TIME mode are determined by RR and insp time (% IPAP) controls The pt can take their own breaths over the timed ones
IPAP control 4-40
EPAP control 4-20
Rate control 4-40
CPAP control 4-20
Timed insp 0.5-3.0 seconds
IPAP rise time .05-.40 seconds
oxygen % 21-100
If pt is hypoxemic increase the level of EPAP
If the pt has increased CO2 adjust the IPAP to create pressure difference between IPAP and EPAP
Typical initial setting of EPAP 3-5
Typical initial setting of IPAP 8-12
Which mask improves the tidal volume the most full face mask
