DeVilbiss IntelliPAP Standard PLUS CPAP with SmartLink Description
The DeVilbiss IntelliPAP series of CPAPs provides the patient with much needed comfort and the provider with tracking capabilities in order to monitor patient compliance. These technically advanced products are known for their exceptionally quiet operation, reliability, small size and ease of use.
At less than 5 pounds with its optional Heated Humidification system, the Devilbiss IntelliPAP product line is both convenient and economical. The Standard Plus allows for a fixed setting to be programmed into your machine; however, this model also includes SmartFlex, an expiatory comfort relief feature. DeVilbiss Healthcare’s own unique, exhalation relief technology called SmartFlex allows the CPAP user to exhale and inhale more naturally and helps to eliminate abrupt pressure adjustments that can cause arousal from sleep.
DeVilbiss SmartFlex offers three pressure comfort settings:
- Each setting equates to an exact 1 cm H20 drop in pressure upon exhalation
- This drop in pressure will last the entire duration of exhalation
- Unlike some other technologies, SmartFlex will be suspended any time the flow generator senses an insufficient respiration (i.e. Apnea)
- Also, unlike competitive solutions, SmartFlex is available during ramp delay
The SmartLink Therapy Management system provides a simple means of monitoring and recording CPAP usage and evaluating the effectiveness of CPAP therapy. SmartLink can be added to any IntelliPAP model, instantly increasing its capability. Stored data is transferred to a computer via an SD card for analysis by the SmartLink software package. Once the patient monitoring period is complete, then the module can be removed and placed on another IntelliPAP unit.
This IntelliPAP CPAP includes SmartCode. SmartCode is an alpha-numeric code that is shown on the display of the IntelliPAP. Much like a bar code, the character and sequence of the characters contain vital CPAP usage data in an encrypted form. Once the code is decrypted using our on-line SmartCode Report Generator, usage data—and depending on the device, efficacy data—is presented in an easy to read and understand report. Reports can be saved as a pdf and placed in the patient’s record.
The benefits of SmartCode are that the CPAP does not need to be directly connected to the computer, nor does it use memory cards. SmartCode is available in every model of IntelliPAP without additional fees or equipment/software, and provides insightful data that can be used to determine a patient’s compliance and monitor the effectiveness of the prescribed therapy.
