WatchPAT ONE will be prominently featured in the company’s virtual content for SLEEP 2020 as the first fully disposable Home Sleep Apnea Test (HSAT) for sleep practices who are prioritizing infection control and patient backlog management. WatchPAT ONE, offers patients and physicians the same accuracy and reliability as WatchPAT 300 without the need for return shipping, downloading, cleaning or preparation for the next study. Its online visibility allows sleep practices access to a dashboard and daily reports regarding the status of their patients’ progress along the care pathway.
About WatchPAT ONE
WatchPAT ONE was designed to deliver both ease of use and accessibility. With WatchPAT ONE, patients simply pair the WatchPAT device to their smartphone using Itamar’s proprietary App during their Home Sleep Apnea Test. Once the test is complete and the data is automatically transmitted to Itamar’s secure CloudPAT™ server, the prescribing physician receives an automatically generated, comprehensive report based on WatchPAT’s True Sleep Time, Sleep Architecture and Central Plus algorithms. The patient is then able to dispose the WatchPAT device without any further action required. WatchPAT ONE received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July 2019 and is currently available in the U.S., Europe and Australia.
