Please see my post earlier today for the full CMS decision on Home Testing.
I found this line interesting:
unattended home sleep monitoring device of Type IV, measuring at least three channels
I only have a basic understanding of the main Type 4 device on the market, the Resmed ApneaLink. My understanding is that it utilizes a nasal pressure transducer. I just googled it and came up with this site:
It looks like there is an optional oximeter available, that adds 2 channels (pulse and oximetry) to the nasal pressure transducer channel, giving the required 3 channels.
Are most doctors who are currently using the Resmed ApneaLink also using the optional oximeter??? If anyone has some info about this device, please leave a comment. Thanks.
