The SleepCube BiLevel ST device is designed to enhance the breathing of patients with spontaneous respiration
The SleepCube BiLevel ST device is designed to enhance the breathing of patients with spontaneous respiration. Unlike ventilators, it will not completely take over the breathing for the patient, but instead helps a patient who has chronic respiratory failure, difficulty breathing, or obstructive sleep apnoea; it is administered via a mask and is not invasive.
The device automatically synchronises with the patients’ respiratory pattern, cycling between IPAP and EPAP (breathe in and breathe out).
The BiLevel ST can also be set to a timed mode, where the clinician sets the BPM (breaths per minute) and %IPAP; or it can be set to a combination of Spontaneous and Timed operation, where the unit cycles in response to the patient’s breathing rate, but switches to the timed operation if the patient fails to take a breath within the timed interval.
- Pressure range of between 3 and 25 cm H2O
- Three operating modes: CPAP, Spontaneous, Spontaneous Timed and Timed only
- Smallest footprint of all leading CPAP devices with heated humidification system attached
- SmartCode remote data compliance feature included, which encodes usage data into a series of letters and numbers that can be easily decrypted using free software or online at http://www.sleepcube.com
- Among the quietest CPAPs on the market – only 26 dBA
- Can be operated from a 12V DC source such as that found in a motor home (not with heated humidifier) and will switch automatically to AC power if connected and available
- Auto-switching universal power supply of 100 – 240 V and 50 – 60 Hz, and automatic altitude compensation between 0 and 2600m (9000ft)
- Large backlit LCD and easy to follow patient menu
- Auto on/off automatically starts the flow of air on breathing into the mask and stops the flow of air when mask is removed
- Delay pressure ramp eases the device to the prescribed pressure. Ramp delay settings of 0 to 45 minutes in 5-minute increments
- Visual mask off alert feature
- Supplied with 6ft tubing as standard. Optional 10ft patient tubing available
- Large slip-resistant pads on bottom of unit minimise movement on the bedside table during the night
- Patient air tubing extends from the back of unit to enhance visual appeal
- Integrated heated humidification system easily docks onto the bottom of the unit without requiring a separate hose or power cord
- SmartLink module and software available for more detailed patient therapy management. Data is transferred to the PC via SD card for further analysis and reporting using the SmartLink software package.
- Flow rounding comfort feature included
- Integrated event detection feature
- Real-time display – LCD display shows actual pressure, leak rate and patient breathing parameters such as breath rate, I/E ratio, minute volume and tidal volume
- Customisable trigger – the sensitivity of the trigger can be adjusted on a scale of 1 – 10 (1 being most sensitive)
