Eccovision Acoustic Diagnostic Imaging System
Our practice uses the Eccovision Acoustic Pharyngometer / Rhinometer system from Sleep Group Solutions to test our patients nasal and oral airways. The device sends sound waves into the airway and the reflected sound waves are measured by the machine to tell us how big the airway is. The Rhinometer measures the nasal airway and the Pharyngometer measures the oral airway. Both systems are FDA cleared and a highly effective way for us to identify the site and severity of airway collapse as it related to snoring and sleep related breathing problems.
Watch-PAT 300 System
The Watch-PAT 300 is an innovative diagnostic Home Sleep Apnea Test (HSAT) that utilizes the proprietary peripheral arterial tone signal (PAT) to enable simple and accurate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) testing while avoiding the complexity and discomfort associated with traditional air-flow based systems. WatchPAT measures up to 7 channels (PAT signal, heart rate, oximetry, actigraphy, body position, snoring and chest motion) via three points of contact. Within one-minute post study, the raw data is downloaded, and auto-scored report generated with differentiating obstructive and central events, providing an AHI, RDI and ODI based upon True Sleep Time and Sleep Staging.
