VPAP VS. CPAP
#1
Can anyone tell me the difference between those two ? My last sleep studies were about 6 years ago and I am going to have bariatric surgery in the not too distant future, and the Dr. wants his patients to have been okayed by whomever put us on our CPAPs or VPAPs. I have a vpap, just wondered why whenever I tell a Dr or nurse that they say "oh, you mean a cpap!"

Thanks!

VPAP is ResMed's trademarked word for a bilevel CPAP.
One pressure for inhalation, and a lower pressure for exhalation.
I see you have an SV machine. that machine initiates a breathe when you fail to breath.

So, which surgery are you having -- Roux-n-Y, Sleeve or Banding?
