SleepView Sleep Study System achieves a Canadian Medical Device license

We are pleased to announce that we have just received our Canadian Medical Device license for SleepView. SleepView, is a small, wrist worn device indicated for use in measuring, displaying and storing functional oxygen saturation of arterial hemoglobin and pulse rate. SleepView is a data logging system which samples every 4 seconds for up to 20 hours. The data can be reviewed by uploading to a PC. Data is displayed graphically and can be analyzed by setting thresholds and counting the number of times the values cross through the upper and lower thresholds. This is particularly useful in counting apnea, or periods where breathing stops, as the oxygen saturation, which is measured, drops. SleepView is a simple sleep study device that can be a useful screening tool for sleep apnea.
