BiPAP Machine Transport Ventilator
A BiPAP machine delivers pressure and oxygen to a patient via a face mask to help support their breathing. It is to be used in an ICU setting on patients in respiratory failure. A transport ventilator is a ventilator that has the ability to be battery-powered to allow incubated patients to remain attached to a ventilator while being transported either within the hospital or out of the hospital to another site.
