Exceptional BiLevel Therapy Machine for Sleep Apnea Therapy
Part of the DeVilbiss DV series of CPAP and BiPAP machines, the DV55D is a BiLEVEL machine that will deliver exceptional therapy for CPAP users in need of higher pressures than traditional CPAP machines. As with all DeVilbiss machines, the DV55D offers a five year warranty, the best warranty in the industry for BiPAP and CPAP machines. SmartCode technology gives the user a way to review and analyze their sleep apnea therapy data without being forced to purchase any type of software that other manufacturers may require with their CPAP machines. You can purchase the intelliPAP DV55D with a heated humidifier for bonus comfort and reduced rain out during CPAP therapy in extreme temperatures.
During your therapy you may have abrupt changes in your IPAP and EPAP pressures, flow rounding will smooth out these changes to maximize the compliance of your CPAP machine while also increasing comfort. BiLevel therapy generally requires higher pressures in order to perform at its peak level, soft start will slowly increase pressure until it reaches the set IPAP pressure level, totaling 10 seconds, which will be easier on the user
CPAP humidification is a bonus comfort feature for therapy users who experience a dry mouth or dry nasal region amongst other side effects after undergoing therapy. These effects can be irritating for all CPAP users, and humidifiers will improve your CPAP comfort. The intelliPAP DV55D comes with a built in heated humidifier and will help negate the ambient temperatures in the room in which you undergo your sleep apnea therapy.
You can read and analyze your CPAP therapy data after use on the easy to read and navigate LCD screen. Your information will be updated daily after CPAP therapy. Your doctor can change your pressure settings and adjust your therapy based upon these readouts. You can also purchase SmartLink software as an optional add on if you want to be able to review your history on a home PC.
The DeVilbiss DV55D is one of the quietest BiLevel machines available for purchase and its size will allow for it to rest on a bedside table without taking up inordinate amount of space. The LCD screen is bright and easy to read and use, and the controls are larger than most BiPAP machines making navigating through your machine easy.

When you breathe into your mask, the machine will automatically begin, and when you remove your CPAP mask the machine will automatically turn off.

The size of this machine, along with the automatic altitude adjustment feature makes this machine great for CPAP users who are on the go.
