Standard Sleep Study vs. WatchPAT
The short instructional video above presents the details on the self-administered Watch-PAT Sleep Study system. While a standard Polysomnography (In-Lab Attended Sleep Study) requires numerous electrode leads (12 or more) and sleeping in a foreign environment under continuous video monitoring (see photo) the Watch-PAT involves three simple sensors monitoring 7 channels of information. The totally portable, battery-operated, wrist-watch design leaves you free to sleep in your normal sleeping position, in your own bed with the least obtrusive system available to enable you to have as normal a night's sleep as possible, thus providing the most realistic depiction of your actual sleep as possible.
CPAP is typically the first line treatment for OSA and it is important to identify a DME (Durable Medical Equipment) provider that specializes in helping OSA patients get properly fitted and supported for the initiation of this therapy. 1st Line Medical is also pleased to provide ENT and other specialty physicians with the ability to provide a more affordable, readily accessible, Custom Fitted Oral Appliance solution called the SomnoGuard, FDA cleared for the treatment of OSA & snoring that may be appropriate for many patients.
