Sleep telemedicine and the latest in HSAT technology

Combining sleep telemedicine and the latest in HSAT technology to create the quickest and easiest pathway for dentists to diagnose and treat OSA with dental devices.

  • The Problem
  • If a patient shows signs of Sleep Apnea, you have two choices -- send them to a physician for diagnostic testing, or arrange the testing yourself. Setting up the testing takes up too much time, as you must work with separate vendors at each stage.
  • That’s where VirtuSLEEP by VirtuOx can help. We handle all the details!
  • Solutions for Sleep Dentistry
  • Most states require a physician to prescribe a Sleep Apnea test and therapy, such as dental devices or CPAP. It is difficult and time consuming for dentists to coordinate these MD visits for their patients.
  • VirtuSLEEP by VirtuOx Solution: Dentists utilize our secure sleep telemedicine platform to easily refer their patients to board certified sleep physicians who will screen for obstructive sleep apnea, order Home Sleep Apnea Tests (HSAT), and prescribe therapy such as dental devices. All of this can be done from the comfort of the patient's home.

What people say

FAQ

Sleep Apnea is a medical condition in which the person’s airways close briefly during sleep. These pauses in breathing (called ‘apneas’) disturb the flow of oxygen to the body and cause the person to awake very briefly. This can happen multiple times during the night, even hundreds of times.
The countless apneas, or pauses in breathing, leave you feeling very fatigued during the day. You are at a higher risk of drowsy driving and car accidents. You are also less productive at work and in other daily activities. Reduced oxygen affects your health, including putting your heart and diabetes at risk. Plus, your body doesn’t get the restorative sleep required to maintain good health.
Symptoms include loud snoring on a regular basis, waking up, gasping or choking, daytime fatigue, drowsy driving and difficulty staying awake during the day.
An in-home sleep test is the best first step to learn if you might have Sleep Apnea. The results will tell your doctor if you will benefit from Sleep Apnea treatment, or if you would benefit more from another therapy.
If you have any of the Sleep Apnea symptoms, it’s critical to get tested as soon as possible. When you delay getting treatment, you delay improving your health.
The at-home test is very easy -- involving a small monitor you’ll wear on your finger, which will track your breathing during the night. You’ll wear it while sleeping in your own bed at home, not a sleep lab. Results will go straight to a sleep telemedicine specialist for evaluation. Then you’ll learn what your next steps should be to get treatment.
