DeVilbiss SleepCube Auto Plus
The DeVilbiss SleepCube Auto Plus is an auto adjusting PAP device.The DeVilbiss SleepCube Auto Plus is equipped with SmartFlex expiratory relief comfort feature.
The DeVilbiss SleepCube Auto Plus is an auto adjusting APAP device used in the treatment for patients who have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (Sleep Apnoea). It automatically varies the pressure throughout the night to the fluctuating changes of the airway.
The DeVilbiss SleepCube Auto Plus features innovative SmartFlex expiratory relief comfort for a restful night’s sleep. The goal with CPAP therapy is to normalise your breathing, allowing for your airway to stay open while you sleep.
Who is the SleepCube Auto Plus Suitable For?
The SleepCube Auto Plus is suitable for performing overnight titrations in hospital, home and can even be used while travelling. The SleepCube Auto Plus automatically adjusts its pressure in response to apnoeas, hypopnoeas and snoring, finding the optimum pressure settings throughout the night while you are sleeping.
Easy and Simple To Use
The DeVilbiss SleepCube Auto Plus is not only functional and effective; the SmartFlex and Flow Rounding features provide added comfort. It is also one of the quietest machines available with a 26 dBA. It features an Auto On/Off while the intuitive menu and large lit screen ensures the DeVilbiss SleepCube Auto Plus is easy to function.
SmartFlex – Expiratory Relief
Smartflex 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.
Setting 1 – reduction of 1cm H2O
Setting 2 – reduction of 2cm H2O
Setting 3 – reduction of 3cm H2O
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.
Included in every SleepCube is the SmartCode data compliance feature which encodes usage data into a series of letters and numbers that can be easily decrypted using free software.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the difference between CPAP (SleepCube Standard) and APAP (SleepCube Auto)?
A CPAP provides a fixed pressure constantly all night long, this pressure is tailored to your requirements as determined by your sleep screening tests and set by your physician. An APAP is an auto-adjusting CPAP, so it automatically varies the pressure throughout the night to the fluctuating changes of the airway.
Do I need a voltage converter to use my SleepCube in a foreign country?
A voltage converter is not needed because the SleepCube range of CPAP’s have a switch-mode power supply, which automatically adjusts to voltages from 100—240 volts and 50—60 Hz. It is, however, necessary to purchase the correct mains lead for the country you are travelling to.
Can I use my SleepCube in a motor home, vehicle, boat?
The SleepCube series CPAP’s can all be operated via a 12V DC power source. There are two 12 V DC operating options available: a 12 V DC accessory cable for a cigarette lighter in a car (DV51D-619) and a 12 V DC accessory cable for a stand alone battery (DV51D-696). Please Note: If heated humidification is used, the heater will NOT operate directly from a 12 V DC source. DC power can be passed through an inverter that will deliver AC power to the system (required 400 Watt / 230 V).
As a patient, can I make changes to my CPAP pressure?
The SleepCube range of CPAP’s are only available with a prescription from a sleep physician. The pressure that your SleepCube has been set to will have been tailored to your requirements as determined by sleep screening tests. Any pressure changes should be made by your physician upon reassessment.
I intend on travelling, will I require my SleepCube to be re-adjusted for large changes in altitude?
No. The SleepCube series CPAP’s contain a pressure transducer which allows the unit to automatically adjust for altitude changes up to 2,700 m (9000ft).
My doctor has advised that I need to have supplemental oxygen at night whilst receiving my CPAP therapy, is this possible?
Yes, supplemental oxygen can be added with the optional oxygen adapter attached between the unit and tubing (7353D-601) or if the mask is equipped with an oxygen port directly to the mask.
What mask should I use with my SleepCube CPAP?
The SleepCube can be used with any vented mask. The success of CPAP therapy is often dependant upon the comfort and fit of the mask so it is important to have a wide choice. Sleep Apnoea Services have a range of masks available including nasal masks, full face interfaces, nasal pillows and mouth only masks.
What length of tubing can I use with my SleepCube?
The SleepCube can be used with either the standard 6ft tubing or 10ft tubing (DV51D-630).
I experience a sore, dry throat and nose. Is there anything I can do?
The most common solution is a heated humidifier. This is a device that fits to the CPAP to heat and moisten the airflow making therapy more comfortable. The SleepCube range of CPAP’s has an integrated heated humidifier available as an accessory. For more information and advice please refer to your sleep specialist.
