Remmers Sleep Recorder

The Remmers Sleep Recorder is used to record diagnostic indicators of sleep apnea, follow up on the titration of oral dental appliances, monitor the effectiveness of CPAP therapy, and to detect periodic leg movements (1). It is manufactured and sold by SagaTech.

Convenience and Simplicity

Self-Attached

The client attaches the necessary leads and no technician or specialist need be present. The unit even provides feedback indicating that the leads are attached correctly and signals are actively processing.

Data Analysis

A Windows™-based software package is included that charts the raw sleep study data and uniquely summarizes measured events for "at a glance" views of severity.

Online Sleep Study Interpretation Service

As an option for you, this is a private, secure, account-based method of submitting and receiving your expert interpretation within days via the internet. You have 24/7 access to your patient data to view or download as you please. We manage and store the data for you.

We welcome all interpreting physicians. Let us know if you'd like to invite your physician to join our network.

The Signals

The Remmers Sleep Recorder captures the signals required to diagnose patients who are suspected of having sleep apnea. These signals are:

  • Blood oxygen saturation
  • Heart rate
  • Pulse amplitude
  • Nasal airflow (through nasal cannula pressure measurement)
  • Respiratory airflow (through pneumotachograph when CPAP is used)
  • Mask pressure (when CPAP is used)
  • Snoring sound
  • Body position
  • Respiratory movements

The Remmers Sleep Recorder also records electromyograms which can be used in the diagnosis of other sleep disorders.

  • Leg electromyograms for the diagnosis of periodic leg movements
  • Masseter electromyograms for the diagnosis of bruxism
  • Follow up CPAP studies

Notes:

(1) These are periodic and repetitive contractions of the leg during sleep. As with sleep apnea, these abnormal movements may cause a person to awaken up to hundreds of times during the night causing fatigue during the day. Periodic leg movements are more likely to occur in older patients.
