Frequently Asked Trilogy Ventilator Questions

  1. What does the Trilogy 202 do?
    The Philips Respironics Trilogy Machine is an easy-to-use, lightweight, and versatile ventilator. Not only is this unit a volume-control ventilator, it is also a pressure-control ventilator. Supporting both invasive and noninvasive ventilation, the Trilogy machine supports both active and passive exhalation breathing circuits to accommodate changes in circuit preferences. It has a unique ability to compensate for leaks in both pressure and volume-control modes and has the ability to use simple passive circuits resulting in significant time and cost savings.
  2. What is a BiPAP ventilator?
    BiPAP stands for bilevel positive airway pressure. Unlike CPAP that uses a single continuous pressure, BiPAP uses two different pressures, one for inhalation (IPAP), and one for exhalation (EPAP). A BiPAP ventilator also referred to a BPAP ventilator, can be used to sense a significant shift in the patients breathing and compensate for this by adjusting pressures to maintain a steady breathing pattern. Sometimes patients cannot tolerate the continuous pressure delivered in a CPAP. Either the pressure is too high for them to adjust, or they struggle to exhale against the incoming pressure. BiPAP allows for a lighter EPAP pressure to make it easier to exhale.
  3. What is a home ventilator used for?
    A home ventilator is either used in a hospice setting for ultimate comfort during palliative care, or for ventilation at home. People with pulmonary diseases, such as COPD use ventilators at home. Their disease renders them unable to do basic tasks until their lungs are filled with oxygen that they normally can’t breathe in on their own.
  4. What is a trilogy device?
    A trilogy machine is one that is also a ventilator. This ventilator helps to treat respiratory infections or respiratory diseases where a person needs assistance because they can not breathe on their own.
  5. What is the difference between a trilogy and a BiPAP?
    The trilogy can deliver either BiPAP or CPAP ventilation. BiPAP ventilation is when there are two pressure levels to the ventilation. The trilogy machine works on CPAP.
  6. What is the difference between BiPAP and CPAP?
    BiPAP and CPAP are both different modes of ventilation. CPAP is a continuous level of ventilation. BiPAP is used when there are two pressure levels. This is for people who need positive air pressure.
  7. How does a ventilator work?
    A ventilator works as it blows oxygen into the lungs for people who otherwise can’t breathe well on their own. The oxygen goes into the lungs and is distributed to the heart where it is carried by the blood to other parts of the body.
  8. Is being on a ventilator the same as life support?
    Being on a ventilator and being on life support are two completely different situations. Life support is when a person is completely unconscious and can be in a coma. They would have invasive ventilation performed on them. Someone who is conscious can have noninvasive ventilation performed on them. This would be just the oxygen mask.
