DeVilbiss IntelliPAP Auto Adjust
The IntelliPAP AutoAdjust APAP Machine is a great choice for comfort, patient education, and remote tracking. The IntelliPAP AutoAdjust feature automatically adjusts pressure settings based on apnea events, mask conditions, and even detects snoring. The SmartFlex technology tracks every breath and adjusts based on inhalation and exhalation, giving patients the maximum level of comfort and pressure for every breath. The IntelliPAP machine gives you daily therapy updates, and the SmartCode technology can “talk” to your doctors and give them up-to-date, remote tracking of your therapy. So, if you need adjustments, you can just give your doctor the code on your machine to access it remotely. The IntelliPAP comes with a 5-year warranty. And, it’s a great budget option, making it an intelligent choice for your therapy and your wallet.
