Validation Study of Home Testing for OSA; Phoenix Sleep Apnea Dentist

Glendale Dentist Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, and nearby areas in Arizona

A recent study compared the accuracy and clinical effectiveness of the Watch-Pat method for diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). When compared to the results of an overnight lab test using polysomnography (PSG), there was a high correlation of apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) and oxygen saturation (LSAT) between the PSG and the Watch-Pat. At our Glendale cosmetic dental office, Dr. Wilcox, a sleep apnea trained dentist provides the Watch Pat device for our patients to help determine the severity of their OSA and to monitor the effectiveness of our oral appliance therapy for Phoenix and Peoria snoring and sleep apnea patients.
