WatchPAT Sleep Testing
Level 3, medical graded sleep test is now available at A Smiling Heart Dentistry. WatchPAT is an FDA-approved portable diagnostic device that uniquely uses finger based physiology and innovative technology to enable simple and accurate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) testing while avoiding the complexity and discomfort associated with traditional air-flow based systems.
Patients can be diagnosed in the comfort of their own home. It is incomparably more comfortable than having an overnight sleep test done at the hospital.
The data acquired by the Watch-PAT is analyzed by Itamar Medical's proprietary user friendly software – zzzPAT which is installed on a computer. The sophisticated algorithm is automatic and thus eliminates the need for subjective scoring of respiratory events providing a complete report of the study within minutes after downloading the data. This method of immediate report generation, when compared to weeks in most other hospital-based settings, enables patients to initiate treatment on the same day and without delay.
