Sleep Screening

ApneaLink™

ApneaLink is a simple, cost-effective sleep-screening tool that objectively
identifies if you at risk for
obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).


Why use ApneaLink?

Sleep Disordered breathing (SDB) is recognized as a serious health problem that impacts about 43 million US adults; however, more than 80% remain undiagnosed and untreated. The ApneaLink connects clinicians to their patients by dramatically increasing the number of identified SDB patients through primary care and specialty referral sources, thereby routing more patients for diagnosis to a sleep center.

How does ApneaLink work?

The ApneaLink is a single-channel screening device that uses a nasal cannula to record patient breathing. It automatically anaylzes and derives AHI, flow limitation and snoring and once downloaded automatically generates a simple, easy to read report with a color-keyed Risk Indicator that anyone can review.

ApneaLink is portable, battery-powered and user-friendly and will streamline any user’s sleep-screening process. A versatile tool, ApneaLink can be used in the patient’s home or any location where patients are sleeping.

Think You Have Sleep Apnea?

If you think you have sleep apnea, you can use the ApneaLink to screen your sleep. This test does not diagnose, but it can give you a good indication and some information to take with you on your next doctor's visit.

Our screening service does not give you a clinical diagnosis but can help identify if you are at risk and should then seek further diagnostic testing.
