Hi!
CPAP or continuous positive airway pressure machines are known to help with COPD even though they are traditionally used for sleep apnea. CPAP machines push in a steady stream of air into the lungs. Thus they help in better ventilation of lungs. At times a COPD patient is unable to exhale properly. Here giving a steady stream of air with CPAP does not help. The patient needs a machine where the pressure is adjusted and exhalation of air is helped with. In these cases a BIPAP or bi-level positive airway pressure machine is used. Ask your doctor which will be better for you. Take care!
