Polysomnography and Sleep Studies
Problems like sleep apnea are among the most underdiagnosed in medicine. Patients are unconscious while snoring or breathing problems occur, and doctors canít see them in a routine office visit. This makes testing especially important to diagnosis and treatment. But having tests performed in a sleep lab is expensive and inconvenient, so patients are likely to postpone having them done. The result system-wide health problems and avoidable accidents caused by lack of sleep.
BioSigns SleepStudy offers a solution to this problem, making it easier to monitor sleep both in and out of the clinical setting. Our integrated solutions encompass remote home and in-lab PSGs, home sleep apnea testing (HSAT), portable recording, HL7, and remote access to meet the demanding requirements of the sleep industry.
How does it work? The SleepStudy device collects physiological data from a patient through comfortable, noninvasive sensors and transmitted in real time to the BioSigns Server using Wi-Fi. From there, it can be accessed by the PC Software and Smartphone Apps for near real-time monitoring of:
- ECG (3 leads)
- Thoracic Effort
- Abdominal Effort
- Skin Temperature
- Body Position
- Airflow and Respiration Pressure
- Snore (derived from airflow or Snore Mic)
- Pulse Oximetry (SpO2/desaturation) and PPG
- Beat to Beat Blood Pressure (derived from PPG and pulse transmission time)
- 4 EEG channels
- 2 EMG channels
With this data, clinicians can get a clear picture of how well a patient is sleeping, whether and how often theyíre waking up, whether breathing problems are interfering with deep sleep, and other information crucial to making a diagnosis. The system performs full real-time remote diagnostics on Obstructive/Central Sleep Apnea, Hypopnea diagnostics, Sleep Stage, Respiratory Sinus Arrhythmia, HRV, Sleep Score and many others.
A key problem with many sleep testing procedures is that they interfere with sleep, making it harder to get an accurate view of a patientís typical nightís rest.
