DeVilbiss IntelliPAP Standard Plus with SmartFlex
The IntelliPAP Standard Plus is a versatile CPAP device that is capable of delivering advanced comfort and reporting. With a 5 year warranty to back up the IntelliPAP's durability and advanced technology, you can rest easy knowing you are getting the best therapy and comfort on the market.
DeVilbiss brings enhanced comfort with a twist that sets it apart from other exhalation relief competitors. SmartFlex includes 3 levels of personalized pressure reduction and 6 different rounding options for the transition between inhalation to exhalation. Pressure is lowered on exhalation by 1 cm H20 per level enabling you to breathe significantly easier against therapy pressure. However what sets SmartFlex apart from other exhalation relief technology is the InteilliPAP's transitional rounding feature. Transitional Rounding pro-actively mitigates the experience of adverse IPAP/EPAP pressure changes. The pressure drop from exhalation and the subsequent increase back to the prescribed setting can disrupted the sleep cycle. Many other CPAP devices struggle during the transition and lose much of their exhalation relief benefits. SmartFlex with Flow Rounding technology ensures a seamless pressure comfort experience.
Advanced Therapy Tracking
Sleep Data is critical component of effective sleep apnea therapy in order to improve therapy effectiveness and compliance. The IntelliPAP records advanced data such as non-response, apnea/hypopneas, snoring and exhale puff event detection. You can utilize SmartCode or the optional SmartLink Therapy Management software to view and download your sleep data on IntelliPap's expansive reporting abilities. Quick View readings can be accessed through SmartCode online reporting.
SmartCode is a unique but simple way to review your sleep data without the need of additional software. The IntelliPAP generates an encrypted code for each therapy session that you have. Each message contains the results of your sleep therapy. You can confirm compliance using the Adherence Score while Doctors will use the Adherence percentage score to determine whether you are in compliance with the CPAP LCD (Local Coverage Determination).
Battery Backup Option
The IntelliPAP has separate connections for AC and DC power enabling a backup battery connection configuration. The AC power cord is included with the IntelliPAP but a DC power cord must be purchased separately. In order to set up the IntelliPAP in a backup battery configuration you must plug the AC and DC power cords into their respective power sources. The IntelliPAP will run on AC power source until it fails in which case it will switch to the DC power source as a backup. Once the AC power source is restored it will switch back to the default AC power source. It is important to note that the humidifier does not work with a DC power source and it will simply act as a passover when on DC power.
