Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that affects at least 22 million Americans; however, it is estimated as much as 80% of those who have it are not diagnosed. If you are among those who might have the sleep disorder, you will need to undergo a sleep study. Now, you no longer need to visit a special center for sleep testing in Lawton. Instead, you can use an FDA-approved option right from your own home. WatchPAT is a portable sleep apnea diagnostic device. You can sleep comfortably in your home environment while collecting the information necessary for a diagnosis.

How Does It Work?

If you need testing for sleep apnea in Lawton, there is no need to interrupt your daily schedule to visit a sleep schedule. Instead, you are provided with the WatchPAT device, which you put on when you go to bed and take off when you wake in the morning. It will record your specific sleep cycles to detect any abnormalities.

The test calculates your respiratory events using True Sleep Time. This method reduces the risk of misdiagnosis by up to 20%. The PAT signal monitors arterial pulsatile volume changes via the fingertip.

The device has an embedded actigraphy that works along with the PAT signal to determine sleep and wake periods to improve the accuracy of the test. Essentially, it creates a noninvasive window into the cardiovascular system and the autonomic nervous system to show interruptions by respiratory disturbances while you sleep. Overall, the device also monitors vasoconstriction, heart rate, and oxygen blood saturation.

All the information gathered works with an advanced algorithm to accurately calculate the presence of breathing-related sleep disorders to give us the information we need for a full comprehensive assessment.

The information from the device is uploaded to a special platform that is HIPAA-compliant to be interpreted by a board-certified sleep physician. In as little as 2 business days, we can have the results of the study to create a personalized treatment plan.
