The BiPAP units on offer here pass all self-tests and appear to have a strong blowers and responsive controls. These were well maintained until it was retired from a public hospital. All use 120 VAC power. The displays are clear in both regular and inverted modes. All alarms work, as do the pumps, valves, couplings and ports. There is some scratching consistent with age on the display and on two of the units some of the membrane coverings on the control buttons have are worn through (see pics). Pricing is based on hours and condition.
A full service manual (pdf file) is available at no charge on request.
The rolling stand on which these can be mounted is available for an additional $75 (Canada/USA only), primarily to cover the estimated costs of shipping it.

As with all used medical equipment purchased from dealers, brokers or end users, this Vision BiPAP will require bio-med certification before being used on human patients within North America.
The BiPAP Vision is a microprocessor-controlled, positive pressure ventilatory assist system. The systemÃ¢Â€Â™s integral air intake filter draws in ambient air which is then pressurized by the systemÃ¢Â€Â™s centrifugal blower assembly. The In-Line Flow Restrictor (ILFR) valve and Pressure Regulation Valve (PRV), which are both located in the blower discharge airway, regulate total flow and pressure at the blower discharge system. An oxygen module can be installed to add a controlled source of supplemental oxygen, up to 100%, to the patient. The Pressure Control (PC) board continuously monitors the readings from the Airflow Module (AFM) of total gas flow, temperature, generated pressure, and patient circuit pressure to ensure prescribed therapy to the patient. The PC board transmits process data to the Main Control (MC) board which then provides overall control of the BiPAP Vision, including conveying instructions to the PC board regarding required valve stem position and blower speed.
The unique design and operation of the ventilator makes it especially suited for mask applications. Designed with the BiPAP Auto-Trak SensitivityTM feature that automatically adjusts to changing circuit conditions, the ventilator is capable of ensuring optimum patient-ventilator synchronicity despite changes in breathing patterns and circuit leaks. (Refer to the BiPAP Vision Clinical Manual.)
A liquid crystal display (LCD) screen is mounted on the front enclosure of the BiPAP Vision. The LCD and the Display Control (DC) board provide the primary user interface with the ventilator, including the visual presentation of data, control features, and visual and audible presentation of alarm conditions. The user interacts with the ventilator through the touch pad and rotation of the rotary encoder while observing the results of this input on the display. The information provided on the display varies depending on the state of the ventilator and / or the operations being performed.
The BiPAP Vision incorporates a number of safety features and self-diagnostic systems. System internal functions are checked automatically at start-up, and periodically throughout normal operation. An audible and visual alarm announces failures of principal subsystems. Integrated patient alarms are also provided and are announced on a visual message display area as well as with an audible tone.
