SOMERSET, PA – DeVilbiss Healthcare recently introduced its latest addition to the IntelliPAP® platform -- the IntelliPAP Bilevel S CPAP System. Incorporating all the popular features of the IntelliPAP line, the minimalist design and exceptionally small footprint offer strong aesthetic appeal and superior technology.
“The IntelliPAP Bilevel S System is the perfect choice for patients who require higher pressures to maintain airway patency,” said Kristin Olexa, Global Marketing Manager of Sleep Products for DeVilbiss Healthcare. “The exclusive flow-rounding technology softens transitions from IPAP to EPAP pressure, 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 or Bilevel 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 bilevel units on the market, the IntelliPAP Bilevel S System includes the SmartCode® Remote Adherence Monitoring System without additional cost or fees. With a simple phone call to the patient, providers or clinicians can obtain important therapy data including Leak % and AHI as well as usage data that makes it easy to satisfy Medicare LCD requirements.
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.
The IntelliPAP Bilevel S 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.
