NovaSom(R) Diagnostic System Can Assist in Raising Diagnosis Rate for Potentially Lethal Condition
Date:1/28/2010

GLEN BURNIE, Md., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Some 18-20 million Americans are at risk for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and of those, only 5 to 10 percent have been diagnosed.  Studies prove that fatality is a major risk of undiagnosed and untreated OSA; however, once detected, OSA can be readily and successfully treated.

Historically, OSA diagnosis has required an overnight stay in a sleep lab, with a technician directly monitoring a patient's breathing.  Many who suspect they suffer from OSA are unwilling to undergo such testing or have a difficult time reaching a state of natural sleep in a lab setting – resulting in variable or inconclusive test results.

As an alternative, Medicare, a growing number of insurance plans, and other medical organizations have recently approved the use of Home Sleep Tests (HST) as the clinically-accurate and cost-effective way to improve patients' access to diagnosis and potentially life-saving treatment.  The NovaSom® Diagnostic System, from Sleep Solutions, Inc., is the first nationally available, full-service home testing system that was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for diagnostic evaluation of adults with possible sleep apnea.

Once prescribed by a physician, NovaSom is delivered directly to the patient's home. The patient uses the device for three consecutive nights, collecting sleep data such as respiratory events (apneas and hypopneas), snoring intensity, blood oxygen saturation, pulse rate and respiratory effort.

The system itself consists of a compact bedside console and three sensors that are easily applied by the patient.  Like a GPS system, the NovaSom test uses voice prompts to talk the patient through the set-up and operation.

During sleep, NovaSom utilizes patented audio digital signal processing (DSP) technology t
