Drawing attention to another risk during sleep apnea testing

Home sleep apnea testing

The link between atrial fibrillation (AFib) and sleep apnea has been clinically established1

Introducing the WatchPAT® Arrhythmia Detection Feature that can detect AFib events and premature beats*

FDA-cleared to identify AFib events and premature beats
Proprietary, cutting-edge technology that has been enhanced over the years
Automatically generated all-in-one sleep & cardiac rhythm analysis report

Arrhythmia Detection Feature

  • Identifies arrhythmic events that occur during sleep
  • Flags at-risk patients, supporting the physician in deciding if further investigation is needed
  • Proven to accurately detect major arrhythmias in a multicenter study6*

*The WatchPAT is not intended to be used as a diagnostic device for any cardiac arrhythmia and is not intended to replace traditional methods of diagnosis for cardiac arrhythmias. In cases where the longest AFib episode detected is shorter than 60 seconds, review of the peripheral arterial tonometry signal for an irregularly irregular rhythm in the location of the episode is recommended. The WatchPAT may not detect short AFib episodes (<60 seconds).
