CPAP Respiratory Ventilation Air Pump

Sleep apnea treatment often involves the assistance of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) respirators. All PAP systems (APAP, CPAP, IPAP/EPAP) control a stream of compressed air (4 to 20 cm H2O) to keep the patient’s airway open, which assists their breathing and greatly diminishes occurrences of closure of their airway during sleep that results in episodes of apnea and snoring.

Allied Motion’s compact KinetiMax brushless DC motors like the KMX24 are used in CPAP systems to quietly and efficiently drive the system air pump precisely at commanded variable rates.
