Sleep Apnea Management and Diagnosis
Obstructive sleep apnea is one of the most serious and under-diagnosed medical problems in the U.S., affecting 18 million Americans and climbing.
Sleep apnea diagnosis and management can start with the Primary Care Physician. Nearly half of people with sleep apnea also suffer with one or more serious health condition that PCPs already manage, such as diabetes, hypertension or heart failure, each of which can be aggravated or caused by sleep apnea. Treating these conditions simultaneously can help achieve improved overall patient outcomes.
Managing sleep apnea patients within your practice starts with the NovaSom Home Sleep Test. Learn more about how NovaSom enables providers to accurately and cost-effectively diagnose sleep apnea at www.NovaSom.com which includes content for medical professionals.
The NovaSom Home Sleep Test Difference
The majority (80%) of undiagnosed sleep apnea sufferers have uncomplicated sleep apnea—that is, sleep apnea without neurological conditions or severe co-morbidities. Uncomplicated adult sleep apnea can be conveniently and accurately diagnosed with NovaSom home sleep testing technology.
NovaSom provides the physician community with validated screening tools to identify the right patients for home sleep testing and the right patients for in-center testing.
