VPAP machine

Anyone else have to wear a VPAP machine of a night to assist with breathing?

Re: VPAP machine

I just saw this.

Yes, I do. I am using ventilator, but we're using it as a high-end vpap machine. It's still non-invasive at this moment, but should the situation worsen to the point of needing a trach, this machine can continue be used since it's a real ventilator. I've been on it for two and a half years.
