The IntelliPAP Standard Plus CPAP System brings SmartFlex technology and advanced therapy reporting to the DeVilbiss platform of therapy machines. Packed with features, the Standard Plus model comes with automatic altitude adjustment up to 9,000 feet and an automatic on/off mode that starts the CPAP once you breath into the mask and stops when not in use. Along with an industry leading, 5 Year Warranty, the IntelliPAP’s design is easy to use, whisper quiet (26 dBA) and its compact shape is great for travel or home use.
DeVilbiss jumps into the enhanced comfort market with the introduction of SmartFlex. This unique exhalation relief function provides three levels of customizable pressure reduction and six rounding options to tailor the transition between inhalation to exhalation. Like many existing pressure reduction technologies, SmartFlex lowers exhalation pressure by 1cmH20 per level (up to 3 cmH20), allowing users to breathe easier against their therapy pressure. What sets the IntelliPAP apart is its transitional rounding feature that prevents the user from experiencing adverse IPAP/EPAP pressure changes. When pressure drops during exhalation, the increase back to the prescribed therapy setting can disrupt the sleep cycle. In similar technologies, users may find themselves struggling against the transition and lose the benefits of exhalation relief. Now, SmartFlex’s rounding function makes pressure comfort technology virtually seamless.
Advanced Therapy Tracking
Sleep data is essential feedback for therapy compliance, but many basic CPAP machines lack detailed reporting capabilities. The IntelliPAP Standard Plus records advanced data such as apnea/hypopneas, non-response, snoring and exhale puff event detection. Use SmartCode or the optional SmartLink Therapy Management software to download your sleep data to view the IntelliPAP’s expanded reporting capabilities. Alternatively, use the Quick View feature on the machine and preview data (Days on Therapy, AHI, High Leak and Average Daily Usage hours) all from the on-board LCD display. Quick View readings are also available through the SmartCode online reporting.
SmartCode is a simple and easy way to review your sleep performance without the need to purchase software. Starting the day after your first treatment, the IntelliPAP machine begins to display SmartCode messages on your machine’s screen. Each message is a unique encrypted code containing the results of your sleep therapy. The IntelliPAP quickly confirms compliance using the Adherence Score. Doctors use the Adherence percentage score to determine whether a user is in compliance with CPAP LCD (Local Coverage Determination). SmartCodes report Adherence based on the best consecutive thirty days of usage. Codes can be generated for the following calendar schedule:
- 1 Day
- 7 Days
- 30 Days
- 90 Days
Optional Integrated Heated Humidifier
Built for durability, the unit is water resistant, has a stainless steel heat transfer plate and a water chamber constructed of Lexan (polycarbonate resin thermoplastic). Use the optional heated humidifier to provide additional comfort and humidity for your sleep therapy. Powering the unit is achieved through docking with the CPAP, eliminating the need for bulky power adapters or extra hoses. The exclusive humidifier chamber is easy to remove and designed to maximize humidity with a larger surface area. DeVilbiss designed the chamber to hold enough water for a full night’s sleep and along with the unique baffle design, the water chamber allows the airflow to collect more humidity. Even at the humidifier’s highest setting, you can still expect a full 8 hours of humidification.
Battery Backup Option
The IntelliPAP machines use a separate connection for AC and DC power, allowing for the machine to be set up in a battery backup configuration. The included AC power cord can be plugged into an AC power source such as a wall outlet, and the optional IntelliPAP 12 Volt DC Power Cord can be plugged into a DC power source such as a battery. The IntelliPAP will use the AC power source by default, and if that source should fail, the machine will automatically convert to the DC power source, without any interruption in therapy. If the AC power source becomes available again, the machine will revert back. Please note that if using the heated humidifier, it will not function from DC power.
