    Flow-Rounding Technology

    The IntelliPAP BiLevel has the capability of smoothing the exhalatory to inspiratory breath-by-breath resistance to maximize therapy effectiveness. The IPAP and EPAP breathing patterns adjust based on a setting of Zero for no assistance and up to 5 for maximum.

    Soft Start

    An advanced Ramp feature, Soft Start slowly increases pressure up to prescribed IPAP levels over a period of 10 seconds, improving overall acclimation.

    SmartCode

    SmartCode is a simple and easy way to review your sleep performance without the need to purchase software. Starting the day after your first treatment, the IntelliPAP machine begins to display SmartCode messages on your machine's LCD screen. Each message is a unique encrypted code containing the results of your sleep therapy. The IntelliPAP quickly confirms compliance using the Adherence Score. Doctors use the Adherence percentage score to determine whether a user is in compliance with BiLevel LCD (Local Coverage Determination). SmartCodes report Adherence based on the best consecutive thirty days of usage. Codes can be generated for the following calendar schedule:

    • 1 Day
    • 7 Days
    • 30 Days
    • 90 Days
    • Cumulative

    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.

    Important Tips

    Firmware Updates

    DeVilbiss offers free firmware upgrades for the IntelliPAP Series of CPAP machines. For example, The AutoAdjust update allows existing owners to add SmartCode and SmartFlex technologies. You can check for the most recent firmware update here: Model DV5 Series Firmware Updates.

    Once you have downloaded the firmware software, use the IntelliPAP CPAP to PC Firmware Upgrade Serial Cable to upload your DeVilbiss firmware to the machine from your computer. The cable connects to the back of the CPAP and to any PC serial port on your computer.

    IntelliPAP users must have a PC serial port available for the firmware upgrade to work. The DeVilbiss software only supports a serial connection; USB-to-USB or other connections will not work. If your computer does not come with a serial port, CPAP.com provides a USB male to Serial male (9-pin) DB-9 RS-232 adapter that allows users to update their IntelliPAP CPAP machines through your computer's USB port. If you do not have a serial port available, then you will need to buy both cords together: IntelliPAP Firmware Upgrade Cable with USB-to-Serial PC Adapter.

    Here are some basic instructions on how to install a firmware update once you have downloaded the software to your PC:

      1. If a DV5M SmartLink Module is attached to the CPAP, be sure to remove before continuing.

      2. Connect the CPAP to a free serial port with cable DV51D-615 and apply AC power to the CPAP device.

      3. Close your web browser and all other open applications.

      4. Run the DV5xFirmware.exe application Note: No files will be permanently installed on your computer.

      5. The software will automatically search the computer serial ports for a supported CPAP device. If found, the "Connected CPAP Details" section will show information about the attached device.

      6. Click the "Start" button to begin the firmware update. The progress bar and status messages will be updated as the firmware update proceeds. Wait for the update to complete before using your computer. Do not run any other applications during the update.

      7. When finished, the software shows the results on the screen (OK or Fail). If the update was successfully completed, you can close the program by clicking the "Exit" button. If the update fails press "Start" to try again.

    On-Board Memory and SD Card Requirements

    The IntelliPAP Bilevel can store up to 90 days of therapy data, and up to 3 years of usage data. If an SD memory card is used to retrieve data from the machine it must be a file format of FAT16. CPAP.com offers this card: SD Memory Card for IntelliPAP Machines as an option. SD cards with other formats, such as an SDHC card formatted for FAT32, will not work with the IntelliPAP machine.

    Bacteria Filters

    A bacteria filter will not install directly to the air outlet port on the IntelliPAP Heated Humidifier. The filter is too bulky and there is not enough space. IntelliPAP humidifier owners can order the FlexiTube Angle Adapter for CPAP and BiPAP Machines to provide a spacer between the humidifier and the bacteria filter. Your CPAP hose can then fit onto the other end of the bacteria filter.

    CPAP Power Options

    Universal Power

    The DeVilbiss IntelliPAP system operates automatically between 110v and 240v AC. When traveling either inside or outside the USA, there are no switches to switch or fuses to change. The machine will automatically sense what voltage is needed and set itself to run on that power.

    The user will need to adapt the plug that goes into the wall to fit the style of outlet socket that is being used. This is simply done with a Power Adapter Plug kit. This is the same type of plug adapter that would be used with a hair dryer or an electric shaver. World Traveler Power Adapter Plugs.

    IntelliPAP 12 volt DC Power Cord

    The IntelliPAP Series come equipped with a DC plug on the back of the unit. This allows the user to connect the CPAP to an external DC battery source. The IntelliPAP can be powered by plugging the 12volt DC Power Cord into a cigarette lighter plug. This is ideal for traveling by car, boat, or recreational vehicle that is equipped with a cigarette lighter plug.

    Important Note: If using the heated humidifier with the IntelliPAP series, the units cannot be operated from DC power. A modified sine wave inverter of at least 120VAC is necessary to power both the machine and humidifier from a DC power source. CPAP.com carries two inverters that would be compatible:

    300 Watt DC to AC Power Inverter

    400 Watt DC to AC Power Inverter

    Battery Backup Option

    Because the IntelliPAP machines use a separate connection for AC and DC power, they can be set up in a battery backup configuration. The AC power cord is plugged AC power source such as a wall outlet, and the optional IntelliPAP 12 Volt DC Power Cord is plugged into a DC power source such as a battery. The IntelliPAP will use the AC power source when available, otherwise will convert to the DC power source, without any interruption in therapy. If the AC power source becomes available again, the machine will revert back.

    CPAP Video & FAQ

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    What does CPAP therapy do?
    CPAP therapy provides a constant airflow which holds the airway open so that uninterrupted breathing is maintained during sleep. It is traditionally provided through a nasal mask that seals around the nose to maintain the pressure level.
    Which CPAP masks work on which machines?
    All CPAP masks work with all CPAP, APAP, and BiPAP machines.
    How do I choose the machine that is right for me?
    We provide our customers with many tools to make informed decisions about their machine purchases. Options include:

    What comes with my machine?
    Machines come with a six foot hose, power cord, at least one filter, and manuals. Most manufacturers include a carrying case which is designed specifically for their equipment. CPAP, APAP, and BiPAP machines do not come with a delivery system or mask. CPAP masks must be purchased separately.

    To see the list of what specifically comes with each machine, you can Browse for a machine. Then on the product page, click the "Specs" tab to see a full list of what comes with the machine.

    Do all CPAPs use filters?
    Yes, all CPAPs use at least one filter that is usually a type of foam material and washable. Some CPAPs offer finer filtration with the addition of a disposable paper filter.

    Cleaning and changing filters is the only maintenance required for a CPAP machine.

    The filters are located at the back of the machine at the air intake.
    Are prescriptions required for mask, machine, humidifier, and Provent purchases?

    What is exhalation relief?
    Exhalation relief is a comfort feature which reduces the air flow at the time of exhalation, making the breathing process more natural.

    The following are the different types of exhalation relief names by manufacturer.

    • Philips Respironics = C-Flex, C-Flex+, A-Flex and Bi-Flex
    • Resmed = EPR (Expiratory Pressure Relief)
    • 3B Medical = RESlex
    • Apex Medical = PVA (Pressure Variation Algorithm) Pressure Relief
    • Curative Medical = EUT (Expiratory Unloading Technology)
    • DeVilbiss = SmartFlex
    • Fisher & Paykel = SensAwake Technology
    • Human Design Medical = Z-Breathe
    • Somnetics = EZEX

    Here are some machines with an exhalation relief feature:

    Transcend Auto miniCPAP™ Machine with EZEX
    PR System One REMStar 60 Series Auto with Bluetooth
    AirSense™ 10 AutoSet CPAP Machine with HumidAir™ Heated Humidifier
    + See More
    What maintenance is required on machines?
    The only care a CPAP, APAP or BiPAP machine requires is to clean or change the filters at the air intake. This keeps the internal parts from accumulating dust. Fine paper filters should be changed out every 30 days, or when they appear soiled. Foam washable filters should be rinsed with clear running water once a week, allowed to air dry, and reinserted.

    Here are some other suggested actions to care for your machine:
    • Keep the area around your machine clean by removing any dust from the area to improve the air quality delivered to your machine and to you.
    • Keep the air intake of the machine unblocked. Curtains, bedding, and papers can easily block the air intake of your machine, reducing the airflow.
    • If a humidifier is used with your therapy, do not pick up the machine with the humidifier attached. With most machines it is easy to spill water from the humidifier chamber into the machine causing damage. Manufacturer warranties are voided by water damage to the machine. To avoid this, remove the chamber from the humidifier and then remove the humidifier from the machine rather than transporting them together.
    • If a humidifier is used, empty the water from the chamber every morning. Accidents happen. If a family pet or family member moves the machine and humidifier with water in the chamber it is more likely that water could be spilled into your machine. Water damage to a machine voids the manufacturer warranty.
    What are the CPAP, BiPAP and Sleep Apnea related HCPCS, CPT or billing codes?

    E1399 is Miscellaneous and is used for other CPAP items.
    What does a CPAP prescription need to say?
    A CPAP prescription must contain all of the following information:
    • One of the following words or phrases: "CPAP" or "Continuous Positive Airway Pressure"
    • Your physician's contact information
    • Your physician's signature
    • The patient's full name
    • Your specific pressure setting:

      • Example: 9 CM/H2O
      • Example: 9
      • Example: 14 CM/H2O
      • Example: 14

    What data capable machines are available?
    CPAP machines which record full data (such as AHI and leak info):


    AutoPAP ("Autotitrating CPAP" or "APAP") machines which record full data:


    BiLevel ("BiPAP") machines which record full data:


    CPAP Machines that only record compliance data (hours used) are:

    What does CPAP software do?
    CPAP software allows for the downloading of information from certain CPAP machines. Information on breathing, pressure levels delivered, apneas, etc. is available to help determine the effectiveness of CPAP therapy. Software is not required to operate a CPAP machine. CPAP software provides more data than the information obtained through the on-screen display or SmartCode. Also, the software allows you and your doctor to view any night of recorded data by revealing results on an hour by hour basis.

    Some CPAP manufacturers maintain a proprietary software package that is only compatible with their machines.

    Here is a list of each manufacturer and the name of its related full data software available:
    What types of Software are available?
    There are two types of software available: compliance software and advanced software.

    Compliance software provides data such as patient hours, total machine operating hours, pressure setting, and pressure relief information. Advance software includes compliance data, as well as more detailed data such as AHI (Apnea/Hypopnea Index), leakage, average pressure, and a graphical representation of data.

    Compliance software is available with some standard CPAP machines. Advanced software is available with most top of the line CPAP machines, APAP machines, and BiLevel machines.
    How do I interpret my data?
    Software data can be interpreted by your physician or clinician. There are also many websites and search engines available to help you research the sleep apnea related terms which will provide more knowledge in managing your own CPAP therapy. Visit CPAPtalk.com, our free sleep apnea forum, which is a great resource for CPAP users who want to understand their condition and take control of their health.
    What is the difference BiPAP and BiPAP ST?
    A BiPAP (also referred to as a BiLevel or VPAP) delivers two set pressures, a higher pressure for inhalation and a lower pressure for exhalation.

    BiPAP and BiPAP ST machines are similar, as they are both designed to provide the same airway pressure. The difference between a BiPAP and a BiPAP ST is the Spontaneous Timed feature. The ST responds to the user when the minimum number of breaths per minute has not been met. This machine ensures all breaths occur by triggering the user to take another breath within the minute.

    For example, a BiPAP might be set at the following:
    • Inhalation Pressure - 10
    • Exhalation Pressure - 5
    In this case, a BiPAP will provide an IPAP of 10 and EPAP of 5.

    A BiPAP ST might be set at the following:
    • Inhalation Pressure - 10
    • Exhalation Pressure - 5
    • 12 BPM (Breath Per Minute)
    Similarly to the regular BiPAP, the BiPAP ST will provide an IPAP of 10 and EPAP of 5, and will additionally monitor if you inhale 12 times within the minute. Please Note: The ST will not breathe for you, rather it will prompt the user to take a breath.
    What does a BiPAP prescription need to say?
    A BiPAP prescription must contain all of the following information:
    • One of the following words or phrases: "BiPAP", "BiLevel", "VPAP"
    • Your physician's contact information
    • Your physician's signature
    • The patient's full name
    • Your inspiration pressure (Also called IPAP or breathing in pressure)
      • Example: IPAP 13 CM/H20
      • Example: IPAP 13
      • Example: IPAP 4 CM/H20
      • Example: IPAP 4
    • Your expiration pressure (Also called EPAP or breathing out pressure)
      • Example: EPAP 13 CM/H20
      • Example: EPAP 13
      • Example: EPAP 18 CM/H2O
      • Example: EPAP 18
