Introduction to the Respironics BiPAP Pro Bi-Flex
This BiPAP has many great features for sleep therapy patients. This BiPAP Machine has control technology to handle proper pressure, mask types and much more. With two air pressure levels, the pressure rises during inhales and lessens during exhales. This allows the patients a feeling of natural breathing. This machine uses smart technology to provide effective sleep therapy to all patients. I also recommend checking out my article on the best BiPAP machines, the best CPAP machines as well as my article teaching you the differences between the two.
