Verizon Wireless and NovaSom, Inc., the leader in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) home testing, will be showcasing the NovaSom’s AccuSom  Home Sleep Test at 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), [the Verizon booth ,Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall, Booth #30259].

The AccuSom Home Sleep Test is used in the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea(OSA), one of the most serious and under-diagnosed medical conditions in the United States, affecting nearly 18 million Americans.  AccuSom is the only FDA-cleared wireless home sleep test on the market, utilizing Verizon’s network to wirelessly collect and transfer sleep data from the patient’s home to a proprietary cloud-based sleep apnea management platform for physician interpretation and diagnosis.

The AccuSom, NovaSom’s second-generation home sleep test, is a smartphone-sized portable Type III cardio-respiratory monitor.  Its multichannel sensor system monitors the five parameters necessary for OSA diagnosis: respiration airflow, oxygen saturation, pulse rate, respiration effort and snoring.

Once a physician submits a prescription for a Home Sleep Test, the AccuSom is mailed directly to the patient to be self-administered in the comfort and privacy of his or her home.  The device uses voice prompts, which can be programmed in any language, to walk the patient through testing.  It wirelessly transmits sleep data via the Verizon network after testing is completed.  The AccuSom is capable of multi-night testing, which is proven to identify more patients with positive OSA diagnosis than a one-night sleep lab test.

    NovaSom is the leader in OSA home sleep testing, with the first FDA-cleared system and over 75,000 tests performed.  Home sleep testing with NovaSom is a convenient, cost-effective alternative to in-lab sleep testing, shown to be clinically appropriate for up to 80 percent of the 15 million people that remain undiagnosed with OSA.  The company is fully accredited by the Joint Commission as an Ambulatory Care Sleep Diagnostic Center and CMS-approved as an Independent Diagnostic Testing Facility.
