DeVilbiss IntelliPAP 2 Pulse Dose and Data Questions
#11
Thanks Apneaway,

I really appreciate your response.

Did you get the Pulse Dose attachment?  Not sure from your posting.  Of course you have a warm room, so may not be an issue.

I have night time temps down to 15 deg Celsius (60 F), and so far in testing have only had a moisture issue on one night, when I left humidity very high.  A hose cosy might have helped me out, and I am sure a heated hose would have helped.


Have you noticed any difference in the response to events?  Many people here state that the Resmed algorithm responds quicker than the Philips DreamStation.  As a DreamStation user do you feel that the Devilbiss is similar, better, worse, or can you notice it?  If you use it for several days, would your charts show and increase in your AHI or the duration of them?

Are there any other reasons you would not consider it as a primary machine?  (Other than water filling and heated hose that you already mentioned)

Thanks again for whatever feedback you can provide.

Hey Snoopy. Anytime. Thanks to this forum so we all can share helpful hints together.

I didn't get the Pulse Dose version. As I said I'd been exchanging emails with Matt. He said the standard one in room temperature should be good. Also I'm reluctant to pay extra $180 for a feature that I might not actually need. You can email him and ask if you need the option in a 15C room temperature. A high humidity setting will also cause condensation. Another option is to use CPAP hose tubing cover or tubing wrap cover. [commercial link removed]

I only use the IntelliPAP 2 for a couple of days and I found I don't have any problem in inhale/exhale compare to my DS. I will say the Flex algorithm in the machine is doing quite good. I actually feel quite good after waking up in the morning. 

And as I said I don't use it as my primary device. I bought it for backup (in case my DS is broken) and portability (will be on a trip later). So no point using a portable regularly while the DS is still functioning. Basically I save it for traveling. Other than what I said the unit is good for regular use.

It supports sending apnea clinic data to the cloud at mysmartlinkcloud.com. You can check your AHI-CAI-Pressure etc. at intellipap.com and input 1-7-30-90 day smartcodes (generated from machine) to have day by day data.

Snoopy,
The nose pillows seem fine. I am not as stuffed up as i can get sometimes with a cold, but so far so good. Time will tell how it works with extreme congestion. And I'm very curious about that myself. The Software has some quirks, and I will get a review posted about it early next week.
