SOMERSET, PA – DeVilbiss Healthcare recently introduced its latest addition to the IntelliPAP platform -- the IntelliPAP Standard Plus CPAP System. Incorporating all the popular features of the IntelliPAP line, the IntelliPAP Standard Plus is the next step up in therapy and reporting from the popular IntelliPAP Standard.
“This unit features DeVilbiss’ SmartFlexTM Technology, a unique exhalation pressure relief function,” said Kristin Olexa, DeVilbiss Product Manager of Sleep Solutions. “In addition to this enhanced comfort feature, the IntelliPAP Standard Plus includes expanded reporting capabilities.”
SmartFlex provides a high level of customization by providing three pressure relief drops (1, 2, 3) and six rounding options to independently adjust the transition between inhale and exhale (settings are 0-5). SmartFlex can be disabled or enabled for patient adjustment and is automatically disengaged in the absence of sufficient breath.
The IntelliPAP Standard Plus’ expanded reporting capabilities include apnea, hypopnea, non- responding, snoring, and exhale puff event detection and leak reporting through the on-board SmartCode® Compliance Tracking and optional SmartLink® Therapy Management System. In addition, the IntelliPAP Standard Plus features a Quick View that allows users to view Days on Therapy, AHI, High Leak, and Average Daily Usage Hours (while breathing).
With whisper-quiet operation of 26 dBA, the unit offers delay pressure ramp to ease the machine to the prescribed pressure, allowing a user to fall asleep at a lower pressure. In addition, the IntelliPAP Standard Plus utilizes a patented auto on/off feature that automatically starts the flow of air after breathing into the mask, and stops the flow of air when the mask is removed.
Users will also appreciate the easy and intuitive controls – three large buttons control nearly all functions for simplified patient operation. The large, backlit LCD screen can be left on or turned off at night to suit each individual’s preference.
Along with an eight-foot power cord, the IntelliPAP Standard Plus also includes an optional integrated heated humidification system that easily docks into the bottom of the unit without requiring a separate hose or power cord. The humidifier reservoir is easy to remove and replace and includes built-in overflow protection. The system also includes a discreet carry bag that can be easily expanded to hold additional accessories.
