What is WatchPAT?
WatchPAT is an FDA-approved portable diagnostic device that uses the most innovative technology to ensure the accurate screening, detection, and follow-up of sleep apnea. Its ease of use is unparalleled in the marketplace and it is greatly complemented by the fact that WatchPAT testing is done in the comfort of your own bedroom; an environment that best reflects the pattern of your sleep habits.
How to operate the WatchPAT?The amount of time people sleep varies from person to person. The WatchPAT is put on when you go to bed and runs ten (10) consecutive hours after turned on. You should take it off (without the need to be turned off) when you wake up in the morning and return it to the clinic for sleep data downloading. Thanks to WatchPAT’s automated data analysis, you don’t have to wait to get your diagnosis. Once you return the WatchPAT to your physician, you will receive an immediate detailed sleep report. This instantaneous report generation—compared to a lengthy wait in most hospital-based settings—allows you to initiate sleep apnea treatment the same day and without delay.
