The American Academy of Sleep Medicine released the top 10 noteworthy studies published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine throughout last year.

New FedRAMP authorization enables Somnoware to rapidly deploy its cloud-based platform across public healthcare systems, provides customers with the guarantee of government-approved security, and sets the stage for future growth.
A study involving patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and coronary artery disease (CAD) found that the physiological traits that cause OSA, including lower arousal threshold and both high and low pharyngeal muscle compensation, also influence CPAP adherence.Study results were recently published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
Just like in any other industry, sleep centers have had to shift their practices to a more remote model wherever possible in the face of COVID-19. HSATs and disposables have increased, with dropship and curb-side pickup options available for safety and convenience. In-person appointments have waned as people have become open to using telehealth even for sleep concerns, and patients have become more and more averse to coming into the lab in person over the past year. Add to that additional protocols and processes that take extra time, and now some places don’t require masks if you’re vaccinated, but some still do, or they didn’t, but now there’s the Delta variant, so they do again, maybe I’ll just put it off… who really gets a decent night’s sleep anyway, right?
The healthcare industry has built a goldmine of patient data but it's not being fully leveraged. In this video, watch Dr. Raj Misra - our Chief Data Scientist - discuss how Somnoware uses A.I. for predictive analytics.
