Home sleep testing devices have become popular among medical providers to  determine whether or not patients may have obstructive sleep apnea.  Left  untreated, sleep apnea can account for higher risks of accidents, obesity, heart  disease, diabetes, and even colon cancer.

Medical professionals upload raw data  off the machine through the pm-Assist?  service that is scored by Registered Polysomnographic Technicians (RPSGT),  interpreted by Board Certified Sleep Physicians, and in as little as 24 hours  receive a diagnostic report.

“The growth of our pm-Assist program parallels the growth of home sleep  testing in the industry,” commented Dr. Benjamin Gerson, Chief Medical Director  of University Services, the parent  company of pm-Assist.

“Each year there are new home sleep testing devices  entering the market allowing medical providers to treat patients with  obstructive sleep apnea accurately and efficiently. Pm-Assist has become an  important component to this emerging industry.”

Devices that diagnose sleep apnea at home are becoming a popular alternative  to overnight sleep testing in a sleep center. According to pm-Assist, a service  that provides reports to medical providers for home sleep testing devices, the  volume of completed reports more than doubled in 2011.

pm-Assist? is compatible with numerous home sleep testing devices and offers  seamless transmission of data through a secure internet connection as well as  online study tracking and statistical analysis.  Each RPSGT and Board Certified  Sleep Physician reviewing the patient data is an employee of University  Services, not a network of unaffiliated physicians or technicians, which makes  the pm-Assist? program unique.

Board Certified Sleep Physicians, medically licensed in all 50 states, review  initial evaluations, titrations, re-evaluations, and treatment effectiveness  studies. Step-by-step instructions are available for easy uploading &  downloading of files. Diagnostic reports are issued with treatment  recommendations based on the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM)  guidelines to ensure patients receive the highest quality of care.
