Methods for providing expiratory pressure relief in positive airway pressure therapy


A method of operating a cpap apparatus in which the interface pressure is controlled to rapidly drop at the start of expiration by an expiratory relief pressure (erp) that is independent of instantaneous respiratory flow, following which the pressure rises to an inspiratory level at or shortly before the end of expiration, or at the onset of an expiratory pause, if any. The erp is an increasing function of the inspiratory pressure.
