If you snore or live with a loved one who snores, it has a significant impact on the quality of your sleep. The person who snores usually wakes up tired and if you have this feeling persistently – you may be suffering from sleep apnea. If so, our Fairfax sleep apnea dentist, Dr. Pamela Marzban, has a new technology which will provide relief and improve your overall health and well-being.
What is the WatchPAT ™, you may ask?
This innovative technology is an FDA-approved diagnostic portable device which provides accurate detection, screening, and follow-up treatment for sleep apnea. Instead of having to go to your sleep apnea dental office or participate in an elaborate study at a sleep center, you can now test yourself in the privacy of your own bedroom.
Many patients end up waiting for a polysomnography (PSG) test, but are unable to get off the wait list due to sleep center backlogs. WatchPAT ™ has been validated against PSG and offers an immediate solution to finding relief for your sleep apnea.
Some of the advantages of the WatchPAT ™ are:
- Wrist-worn device which is easy to use
- Reports sleep study information in real time
- Provides access to raw data in the privacy of your own home
- Its high rate of accuracy makes it the most precise, user-friendly ambulatory sleep apnea monitor currently available
No more sleepless nights, once you’ve tracked your sleep cycles with this technology. It provides our caring Fairfax sleep apnea staff with the right data to create your individual treatment plan which can include a custom oral appliance or may require simple tongue displacement exercises or jaw positioning.
