The aim of the study was to compare physical and technical features of a new, improved, model of polish CPAP device (POL-CPAP2). The new model is smaller and lighter than the previous one. The new model produces higher flow and maximal working pressures 335 L/min and 19 mbar respectively. Device is also less noisy at usually applied pressures. Important novelty is a 20 minutes ramp pressure increase facilitating patient to fall asleep.
