Introducing WatchPAT™ One: Your Solution for Accurate Sleep Apnea Detection
Sleep apnea is a condition that affects millions of people worldwide, with more and more cases being diagnosed each year. It occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep, causing them to wake up multiple times throughout the night. This leads to poor quality of sleep and can have serious consequences on overall health and well-being.
Traditionally, diagnosing sleep apnea requires an overnight stay at a sleep lab or hospital where various sensors are attached to the body to monitor different physiological parameters. However, thanks to advancements in technology, there is now a portable and accurate solution available – WatchPAT™ One. At Imagine Health we use WatchPAT™ to assist us in helping you address and overcome sleep apnea.
What is WatchPAT™ One?
WatchPAT™ One is an FDA approved portable sleep apnea diagnostic device that accurately measures for sleep apnea based on up to 7 different factors. These include PAT signal (peripheral arterial tone), heart rate, oximetry (blood oxygen level), actigraphy (gross motor activity), body position, snoring, and chest motion.
This innovative device uses a small wrist-worn sensor that collects the necessary data while you sleep comfortably in your own bed. This makes it both convenient and non-intrusive compared to traditional methods of sleep study.
How Does WatchPAT™ One Work?
WatchPAT™ One works by analyzing the collected data to determine if there are any signs of sleep apnea. It not only measures the frequency of breathing disruptions but also takes into account other factors such as sleep architecture and central sleep apnea.
Not only does WatchPAT™ One accurately diagnose sleep apnea, but it also provides valuable information to healthcare professionals for follow-up treatment. This includes measuring true sleep time, which is crucial in determining the severity of the condition and developing a proper treatment plan.
Why Choose WatchPAT™ One?
Besides its accuracy and portability, WatchPAT™ One offers numerous advantages over traditional sleep study methods. Since it can be used in the comfort of your own home, there is no need for an overnight stay at a hospital or clinic. This saves both time and money while still providing accurate results.
Additionally, WatchPAT™ One measures multiple parameters simultaneously, making it a more comprehensive tool compared to other devices that only measure one or two factors. This allows for a more accurate and thorough assessment of sleep apnea.
WatchPAT™ One is revolutionizing the way sleep apnea is diagnosed by providing an accurate, portable, and non-intrusive solution. Its innovative technology measures multiple parameters and provides valuable information for follow-up treatment. If you suspect you may have sleep apnea, don’t hesitate to ask your healthcare professional about WatchPAT™ One – the most advanced sleep apnea diagnostic device on the market. So, it’s clear that with WatchPAT™ One, getting a good night’s sleep has never been easier!
