About the BresoTec Device
BresoDx is a clinically-tested, portable, home-based and self-administered diagnostic device to provide accurate, fast and convenient diagnosis of sleep apnea at a fraction of the cost of the traditional overnight polysomnography (PSG) at sleep labs. The product records breathing airflow and sound during sleep, and the data is analyzed by an innovative algorithm to provide an Apnea-Hypopnea Index value. The results show strong correlation with PSG. Sleep apnea significantly increases the risk of stroke, heart failure, cancer mortality, and road and industrial accidents. The condition affects ~7% of adults in North America (18 million people), however 87% of them are undiagnosed and untreated, due to high cost and inconvenience associated with overnight monitoring at sleep labs.
