This home diagnostic kit for people with sleep disorders such as apnea comes with a headset that patients can wear at home during sleep. The device records nasal airflow, snoring, O2 saturation, pulse rate and REM/NREM using an EEG.

Physicians can use this data along with clinical indicators to prepare an apnea index and respiratory disturbance index which helps in the diagnosis.
