The DeVilbiss® SleepCube™ Model DV5 Series is intended for use in treating obstructive sleep apnea in patients 66 lbs/30 kg and above. DeVilbiss SleepCube is equipped with a universal power supply. This means that it is automatically capable of accepting line voltages of 100 to 240V~ 50/60Hz.
You do not need to make any adjustments to the device if you are traveling to another country where the line voltage is different than your domestic line voltage. Simply contact your home care provider for the correct style power cord for the region in which you will be traveling (refer to Accessories/Replacement Items for the correct part number).
The SleepCube Auto is an auto adjusting CPAP device with SmartFlex expiratory relief comfort feature. With its unique auto adjusting algorithm the SleepCube Auto is equally suitable for performing overnight titrations in hospital or at home as it adjusts its pressure in response to apneas, hypopneas and snoring, finding the optimum pressure settings throughout the night.
DeVilbiss Healthcare are proud to introduce SmartFlex to the SleepCube Standard and Auto CPAP’s. It reduces the pressure when the patient is exhaling to aide patient comfort. SmartFlex has three settings and each setting reduces the CPAP pressure by 1cm H2O during exhalation.
SmartFlex can be used for the ramp period to enable the patient to go to sleep easier or for the whole night. If an apnoea, hypopnea or a snore is detected the SmartFlex will turn off and will only resume once events are no longer detected. Flow Rounding is a feature that changes the slope of the pressure waveform during the transition from prescription pressure to the SmartFlex setting and vice-versa.
This enables a smooth transition and the chances of waking the patient are reduced. There are 5 levels of flow rounding with level 1 having the steepest slope and quickest transition and level 5 having the gentlest slope and slowest transition. These settings should be adjusted for optimal patient comfort.
