Bipap in simple english

increases inspiration rate to better fill lungs with air, assists with expiration too (I think)

Mom was wondering how it works.. Pushes a big gasp of air into her? Does it hurt.. or startle oneself?

Greetings Gahiker....welcome to the forum. Depends on what kind of Bipap you have, but try http://www.cpapxchange.com/cpap-parts-accessories.html

Also http://www.cpap.com/ and click on power and batteries under accessories.

You can also call their 800 phone numbers and visit regarding your specific Bipap--they are pretty knowledgable. But they have adapters for car cigarette lighters for most Bipaps. We have a Resmed Vpap S/T and that is one of the hardest to find power sources for, but most others have them available.

Good Luck, Beth (CALS to husband Shannon, diagnoseded 8/04 at age 40)

I have a car inverter that I've never had to use but I also bought an Eliminator Battery pack at Canadian Tire and it weighs 23 pounds has a gel pack battery and can power my Bipap for around 7 hours on a full charge. I've only used it twice for a few hours for power failures. Seems to work pretty good for me.

Hey Mike here's a site to get good information on the Bipap. They're not really that scary if you get a good RT with experience and patience.

Hi,
I know this is an old thread, but does anyone know where to purchase a lithium cell battery for a Respironics bipap s/t machine?
thanks for your help. Pat
