Dynamic Dental Wellness recognizes that life can be hectic making it difficult to take time away for an in-lab sleep study, which is why we offer a state-of-the-art Home Sleep Study device.

Our Home Sleep Study device is a portable diagnostic device which uses innovative technology to ensure accurate screening, detection, and follow-up for sleep apnea. It’s unparalleled ease and convenience makes this perfect for testing in the comfort of your own home.


  • The patient self-administers the Home Sleep Study, allowing the patient sleep in the comfort of their own home.
  • Saves time from a patient’s busy schedule.
  • The cost of a home sleep test is only a fraction of the cost of an in-lab sleep study.
  • Home Sleep Study can be especially advantageous to the home-bound or elderly, who might need assistance from family members.

Home Sleep Study Unique Clinical Features

  • Measures actual time asleep that patient sleeps
  • Provide more of an accurate assessment of sleep apnea
  • RDI and AHI—special indices that determine the severity of sleep apnea
  • ODI (Oxygen Desaturation Index, measurement of blood oxygen levels
  • Heart Rat, the heart beats per minute while the patient is sleeping
  • Body Position during sleep
  • Snoring Intensity
  • Sleep Stages
  • Sleep Fragmentation
  • Sleep Statistics

Home Sleep Study Device Measures

  • The physiological signal that mirrors changes in the autonomic nervous system caused by respiratory disturbances during sleep
  • Oxygen levels the blood during sleep
  • Measurement body movement
  • Heart Rate
  • Snoring Intensity

Home Sleep Apnea Testing Made Simple Provided by Dynamic Dental Wellness

Our FDA-approved portable sleep apnea diagnostic device is a at home sleep apnea test that uniquely uses finger based physiology and innovative technology to enable simple and accurate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) testing while avoiding the complexity and discomfort associated with traditional air-flow based systems.

Thanks to its innovative use of technology, our Home Sleep Device offers unparalleled performance, reliability and satisfaction – for our patients at Dynamic Dental Wellness.

The Easiest to Use Home Sleep Test:

Sleep Device is worn like a simple wrist-watch, with no need for belts, wires or nasal cannulas. The simple and intuitive use leads to outstanding compliance and accurate result.

You Can Get the Sleep Study Done at the Comfort of Your Own Home!

At Dynamic Dental Wellness we offer our patients a FDA-approved portable diagnostic device that uses the most innovative technology to ensure the accurate screening, detection, and follow-up of sleep apnea. Its ease of use is unparalleled in the marketplace and it is greatly complemented by the fact that our testing is done in the comfort of your own bedroom; an environment that best reflects the pattern of your sleep habits.

How to Operate the Home Sleep Device?

The amount of time people sleep varies from person to person. The Sleep Study Device is put on when you go to bed and runs ten (10) consecutive hours after turned on. You should take it off (without the need to be turned off) when you wake up in the morning and return it to the clinic for sleep data downloading.

Thanks to automated data analysis, you don’t have to wait to get your diagnosis. Once you return the Sleep Device to our center, you will receive an immediate detailed sleep report. This instantaneous report generation—compared to a lengthy wait in most hospital-based settings—allows you to initiate sleep apnea treatment quickly.

Dynamic Dental Wellness Sleep Test Unique Clinical Features

  • Real Sleep Time—measures actual time asleep—not just time in bed, like other home devices, providing a more accurate assessment of sleep apnea.
  • RDI and AHI—special indices that determine the severity of sleep.
  • ODI (Oxygen Desaturation Index)—measurement of blood oxygen levels. A person may awake when there is a lack of oxygen to the brain.
  • Heart Rate—the number of heart beats per minute while sleeping.
  • Body Position—notes whether you sleep on your back (supine), front (prone) or side, all which influence apnea.
  • Snoring Intensity (dB)—loud snoring is a major indicator of sleep apnea.
  • Sleep Stages and Architecture (wake/light/deep)—the cyclical pattern of various NREM and REM sleep stages summarized in a chart called a hypnogram.
  • REM/NREM Sleep—dreaming sleep characterized by rapid eye movement (REM), the shortest portion of the sleep cycle; Non-REM (NREM) sleep, the largest portion of the sleep cycle, has three separate stages and distinct electrical brainwave patterns.
  • Sleep Fragmentation—repeated short interruptions of sleep throughout the night, reducing the total amount of time spent in the deepest level of sleep Automatic Sleep Report and Sleep Statistics.
  • Sleep Statistics.

Dynamic Dental Wellness Sleep Device Measures 6 Channels

  • PAT—Peripheral Arterial Tone, which is a physiological signal that mirrors changes in the autonomic nervous system caused by respiratory disturbances during sleep.
  • Oximetry—the measurement of oxygen levelsin the blood.
  • Actigraphy—the measurement of body movement while sleeping.
  • Heart Rate—the number of heart beats per minute while sleeping.
  • Body Position—notes whether you sleep on your back (supine), front (prone) or side, all which influence apnea.
  • Snoring Intensity (dB)—loud snoring is a major indicator of sleep apnea.

True Sleep Time

Our sleep apnea device at Dynamic Dental Wellness calculates AHI based on the patient’s True Sleep Time (TST). undiluted respiratory events enable the device to perform a more sensitive and accurate diagnosis. True Sleep Time improves the accuracy of the respiratory indices, test sensitivity and specificity.

Pat Signal Explained

The proprietary PAT signal is a non-invasive measure of the arterial pulsatile volume changes at the fingertip. PAT signal is a surrogate of changes in the sympathetic nervous system that are associated with Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) events and specific “signatures” of sleep stages. The WatchPAT has an embedded advanced actigraphy that when coupled with PAT signal enables the separation between sleep and wake periods and thus provides accurate True Sleep Time.

PAT signal attenuation, and acceleration pulse rate- directly reflect immediate digital arteries vasoconstriction and increase heart rate. Both of which, are direct indicators of arousals and micro-arousals that are part of the SDB underlying mechanism and present in each such event.

When further enhanced with oxygen blood desaturations and resaturations measured with the embedded pulse oximeter sensor, the proprietary algorithm accurately calculates the SDB clinical parameters such as AHI, EDI and ODI that utilize True Sleep Time and Complete Sleep Architecture (Deep, Light and REM), providing the physician with a full comprehensive assessment of the patient.
