Treating Sleep Apnoea starts with a diagnosis.
The following questions will arise:
SA Medical can provide you with the answers and successful solutions to the above question’s.
In partnership with WatchPAT, SA Medical is introducing for the first time in Ireland a Home Sleep Study for people with Sleep Apnoea. This Study is carried out in the privacy of a person’s home over a single night. The time and cost element are greatly reduced compared to attending a sleep clinic as an overnight patient. This new service will reduce waiting times, allowing more people to be diagnosed and offer appropriate treatment at a competitive price.
The WatchPAT sleep diagnostic device provides more clinical data than any other sleep diagnostic unit available in the market. WatchPAT does not require sensors or electrodes all over the body and as such is very easy to use. It is well validated alongside a PSG (Polysomnography) or sleep clinic based study, is both FDA and CE approved and it also meets AASM (American Academy of Sleep Medicine) standards.
Through the exclusive technology used by WatchPAT, Sleep Apnoea can be diagnosed without the need for nasal cannulas or effort belts. It is the only device that measures real sleep time and sleep stages without the use of EEG electrodes attached to the patients head. Worn on the patient’s wrist (similar to a watch), it uses a non invasive finger probe making WatchPAT easy and comfortable to wear.
What Sleep information does WatchPAT provide?
WatchPAT’S advanced zzzPAT software provides a clinically validated algorithm that measures all sleep stages, light, deep and REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep. It provides information on sleep quality including sleep efficiency, sleep latency and REM latency. It also provides added value in detecting REM related Sleep Apnoea with REM and non REM AHI (Apnoea Hypopnoea Index)
