The BiPAP Auto with BiFlex brings together a unique combination of technologies to provide the best opportunity for therapy success. It uses a multi-level algorithm to track subtle changes which occur naturally in sleep as well as apneas, leak levels and other changes. It then adjusts IPAP/EPAP pressures on a breath-by-breath basis to adjust for these factors and provide the lowest pressures possible for an optimal sleep experience without discomfort.
In addition the BiPAP Auto features Bi-Flex technology that softens the airflow on inhalation and exhalation to provide increased pressure relief, making breathing feel more comfortable and natural. Bi-level therapy with Bi-Flex has been shown to deliver a higher level of success for even the most difficult patients. In fact, one study has shown that 54 percent of non-compliant CPAP users were able to stay with their therapy when introduced to Bi-Flex.
Finally the BiPAP Auto offers advanced reporting with an Encore Pro SmartCard. This feature records detailed compliance and efficacy information giving clinicians insight into a patient's therapy regimen. Data management is more efficient, and reports are easily accessible for reading and sharing among physicians/clinicians, homecare providers and patients.
- Auto-adjusting Bi-level pressure delivery
- Multi-level algorithm - Uses two different sets of analytical parameters to keep track patient's breathing.
- Bi-Flex - Softens the air at inhalation and exhalation to provide more comfortable therapy
- Digital Auto-Trak Sensitivity - Tracks and reacts to a patient's natural breathing pattern. It can detect the point of inhalation and exhalation in every breath, allowing Bi-Flex to make each breath more comfortable.
- Encore® Pro SmartCard® and Data Management Software allow providers to track treatment progress.
- Durable, long lasting construction
- Enhanced Event Reporting - Tracks factors like apnea / hypopnea index, leak and snore. Encore SmartCard and optional EncoreViewer Data Tracking Software enables therapy tracking
- Universal Power Supply - Automatic voltage regulator and international power supply for operation on AC currents from 110 to 240 without adjustments. (Plug adapter may be needed for operation outside of the United States.)
