New noninvasive ventilator.

BiPAP[R]AVAPS[TM] is Respironics' newest noninvasive ventilator for LISe in the home, and features AVAPS[TM] (Avg Volume Assured pressure Support) technology, which guarantees an avg tidal volume by automatically adapting pressure support to meet the patient's needs on a breath-by-breath basis by estimating the patient's tidal volume over several breaths and calculating the change in pressure needed to achieve the target tidal volume. AVAPS slowly increases or decreases the IPAP pressure to achieve the proper pressure support.
