The IntelliPAP AutoBiLevel System offers the comfort of AutoAdjust BiLevel therapy and the technology of DeVillbiss’ exclusive Flow Rounding to help smooth out breathing patterns between IPAP and EPAP pressures. IntelliPAP units have an internal power supply eliminating the need for a bulky power brick and it is one of the quietest on the market.

- Easy-to-Follow CPAP user menu
The IntelliPAP AutoBiLevel uses the technology of AutoAdjust automatic pressure adjustment combined with bilevel treatment. The maximum IPAP and minimum EPAP levels can be adjusted to meet the needs of the user. The IntelliPAP uses an AutoBiLevel algorithm that allows it to use a lower mean air pressure for a more comfortable therapy.
The pressure support range (the difference between the IPAP and the EPAP) can be adjusted between zero and 12 cm H2O in increments of .5 cm H2O.The definition of apnea and hypopnea and the delay or ramp setting can be adjusted.
Flow Rounding Technology and SoftStart
The IntelliPAP AutoBiLevel uses Flow Rounding Technology to smooth out the abrupt change between IPAP (inspiration) and EPAP (exhalation) pressures to make the most of the therapy and maximize compliance. The IPAP and EPAP breathing patterns can be adjusted based on a setting of zero for no rounding and up to 5 for a maximum slope or slowest transition from IPAP to EPAP.
Soft Start slowly increases the pressure to the set IPAP pressure over the span of 10 seconds to ease the adjustment to the higher pressures that are frequently required in bilevel therapy.
Select the Auto On/Off option during set up to have the IntelliPAP AutoBiLevel automatically start the flow of air when you breathe into the mask. The air flow stops when the mask is removed and it no longer senses the breathing.
Battery Backup Option
The IntelliPAP machines use a separate connection for AC and DC power, allowing for the machine to be set up in a battery backup configuration. The included AC power cord can be plugged into an AC power source such as a wall outlet, and the optional IntelliPAP 12 Volt DC Power Cord can be plugged into a DC power source such as a battery. The IntelliPAP will use the AC power source by default, and if that source should fail, the machine will automatically convert to the DC power source, without any interruption in therapy. If the AC power source becomes available again, the machine will revert back. Please note that if using the heated humidifier, it will not function from DC power.
The IntelliPAP Remote Adherence Monitoring System of SmartCode is an easy way to review sleep data without the cost of buying software. SmartCode messages begin to display on the LCD screen the day after the first treatment. Each is a unique encrypted code containing the results of your sleep therapy. The IntelliPAP confirms compliance using the Adherence Score and doctors use the Adherence Percentage score to determine compliance.
SmartCode Adherence is based on the best thirty days of consecutive usage and the Codes can be generated in the following schedule:
- 1 Day
- 7 Days
- 30 Days
- 90 Days
