Somerset, PA - January 25, 2012 - DeVilbiss Healthcare introduced its latest addition to the IntelliPAP® platform - the IntelliPAP AutoBilevel CPAP System. Incorporating all the popular features of the IntelliPAP line, the minimalist design and exceptionally small footprint offer superior technology and ease of travel.
"The IntelliPAP AutoBilevel System incorporates the automatic adjusting therapy of the AutoAdjust® system and the comfort of the Bilevel to deliver superior therapy at higher prescription pressures" said Brian Palmer, Product Director of Sleep Devices for DeVilbiss Healthcare. "The AutoBilevel algorithm enables the device to maintain a lower mean airway pressure than many competitive devices, providing a more comfortable therapy and ultimately better patient compliance."
Making the IntelliPAP AutoBilevel even more comfortable, DeVilbiss Healthcare's patented Flow Rounding™ Technology softens transitions during IPAP and EPAP, and the soft start function slowly increases to the prescribed pressure over a period of 10 seconds, making it easier for patients to acclimate to higher pressures.
With the ability to adjust the IPAP/EPAP delta as well as triggering sensitivity, this system offers maximum adjustability. The capability to operate in CPAP, Bilevel S or AutoBilevel modes provides a flexible clinical platform. In addition, the Auto On/Off option automatically starts the flow of air after breathing into the mask and stops the flow of air when the mask is removed.
Among the quietest AutoBilevel units on the market, the IntelliPAP AutoBilevel System includes the SmartCode® Remote Adherence Monitoring System without additional costs or fees. With a simple phone call to the patient, providers or clinicians can obtain important therapy efficacy data include Leak % and AHI as well as usage data through a simple 12-digit encrypted code provided by the IntelliPAP.
"Our goal at DeVilbiss is to deliver quality products and solutions that address the needs of the provider and the patient", said Craig Haba, Vice President of Marketing. "The new IntelliPAP AutoBilevel provides the comfort and ease of use at higher prescription pressures, and the included SmartCode Remote Adherence Monitoring System makes it easy to satisfy Medical LCD compliance requirements."
In addition, the optional SmartLink® Therapy Management System provides an integrated solution for managing CPAP patients and therapy information, while helping to improve workplace efficiency.
