View Full Version : Daytime use of BiPAP

Does anyone use their BiPAP during the day to fight off the nasty effects of Co2 build up rather than because they feel short of breath?

Hi Rachelg,
I use mine for shortness of breath in the daytime.

Shortness of breath. And anxiety about shortness of breath. D

Wife Pat uses bipap. At first she couldn't tolerate mask for very long but then managed 2 or 3 hours at a time. She used it for a couple of hours at night and then for an afternoon nap.
After a while she was able to do a whole night albeit in two stages and now doesn't nap in the afternoon. She is on pressure setting 11.

my sister uses hers for both reasons - if the co2 gets too high a coma could happen.
