The Astral Life Support Ventilator from ResMed. ResMed has upgraded their life support ventilators by including Optional AutoEPAP in iVAPS for patients in the United States. AutoEPAP or automatic expiratory positive airway pressure automatically adjusts a user’s expiratory pressure in response to obstruction of the upper airway. Other upgrades to the Astral iVAPS include easily changeable mouthpieces and full face, nasal or pillow masks from a single limb circuit and customizable program names.
