Latest Sleep Disorder Technology Tested With SleepQuest
Date:9/4/2008

SAN CARLOS, Calif., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- SleepQuest has partnered with ResMed, a leading manufacturer of medical equipment for sleep-disordered breathing, to conduct clinical trials of a new wireless technology used to monitor patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea from wherever they are sleeping. The technology is intended to more easily provide data that can be used to improve the quality of care for those requiring PAP treatment.

"We take pride in working with companies on the cutting edge of technology," said Robert Koenigsberg, President/CEO of SleepQuest. "We want to deploy that expertise on behalf of our patients."

Employing Bluetooth technology, sleep data transmits instantly from a CPAP or other medical device to SleepQuest's Sleep Care Specialists, allowing them to monitor adherence that can increase treatment efficacy. This improves patient comfort, ensures better compliance, and reduces need for office visits or in-person device adjustments.

A total of 30 SleepQuest sleep apnea patients are currently participating in the trial. These patients report that the technology is easy to use and presents no technical problems, improving patient convenience by reducing the need for office visits to download data.

ResMed selected SleepQuest to lead this initiative because of their proven disease management approach for Obstructive Sleep Apnea and industry-leading treatment compliance rate.

"Ensuring that patients properly manage their condition through nightly CPAP treatment is our main goal," said Cody Parker, Regional Office Manager "Helping ResMed develop this wireless technology will benefit our patients by making CPAP treatment more comfortable and effective."

SleepQuest has found that without continued support and encouragement, many patients stop treatment after a few weeks. Their Continuum of Care program was developed in response: a step-by-step approach to diagnose and treat sleep apnea with thorough cli
