Remmers Ambulatory Sleep Recorder
The Remmers Sleep Recorder records signals that are commonly used in diagnosing patients who are suspected of having sleep apnea.
These signals are:
• Blood oxygen saturation
• Heart rate
• Pulse amplitude
• Nasal airflow (through nasal cannula pressure measurement)
• Respiratory airflow (through pneumotachograph when CPAP is used)
• Mask pressure (when CPAP is used)
• Snoring sound
• Body position
• Respiratory movements
This unit is used for pre and post titration evaluation of the airway when an oral appliance is being fabricated for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
DR. WIGGINS DOES NOT DIAGNOSE SLEEP APNEA. THAT MUST BE PROVIDED BY A BOARD CERTIFIED SLEEP SPECIALIST. OTHER TYPES OF HOME SLEEP TESTS AND IN-HOUSE POLYSOMNOGRAMS ARE ORDERED BY YOUR PRIMARY CARE PROVIDER OR OTHER SPECIALTY PHYSICIAN, AND USED FOR THE DIAGNOSIS PROCESS.
