Powerful Customisable Reporting.

Need simplicity? Then start with our standard report template and change the order if required. Or select the data you want in each table/graph and display it in the order you want. You can even add your own branding in the header.

Need more? Then use our custom report builder and make you own design with total freedom. The possibilities are nearly endless.

An introduction to one of the easiest and cost effective ways of sleep staging.

With the addition of a simplified sleep staging module allows you to have the details of sleep stages in a home or ambulatory set up – in a simple way. Picking up both EEG and EOG signals opens up a whole new world of diagnostic possibilities for better therapy management.

The fastest and easiest way for ambulatory use is the combination electrode with 1x EEG and 2x EOG. The sensor is applied with disposable adhesive electrodes and can be applied by the patient themselves. Thanks to the recording of 1x EEG and 2x EOG, the most important sleep quantification curves can be recorded and analyzed. The correlation between a measurement evaluated manually and a measurement with the combination electrode is almost 80%.

Simplified Sleep Staging - The package

  • 1 x EEG and 2 x EOG simplified sleep staging combination signal module

In addition to the standard sensors:

  • Pressure (Flow & Snore)
  • Effort (Thorax / Abdomen)
  • SpO2, Pulse rate
  • Body position
  • Movement (Sleep / Wake Determination)
  • CPAP/BiPAP – Pressure

In addition, up to 8 external channels can be individually recorded on each of the two AUX connections, e.g. PLM, ECG, EEG, EOG, EMG.

Docking Station for simplified handling

The docking station charges the Li-Ion battery of the SOMNOtouch ™ RESP and regularly loads free firmware updates. So your SOMNOtouch ™ RESP is always up to date.

The virtual docking station on the PC displays the current status of the device.

Intelligent Connect™

With the innovative Intelligent Connect™ Technology: Both AUX slots can be used for any sensor that fits, the devices automatically detects which sensor has been connected to it. Therefore patients can not confuse many of the sensors when they apply the device themselves; physicians on the other hand do not always have to pre-chose a montage.

Optional Sensors

  • Sleep scoring according to AASM (4 EEG, 2 EOG, 1 EMG)
  • PLM detection
  • Blood pressure determination (via Pulse Transit Time, PTT)
  • Interface to CO2 measurement device

Cuff-Less Continuous Blood Pressure Measurement (optional)

  • Systolic / diastolic blood pressure (in mmHg), beat-to-beat, records all maxima / minima
  • Recording of nocturnal blood pressure fluctuations *
  • Recording of the rise in baseline blood pressure during REM *
  • No annoying inflation of the cuff during the night, no disturbance of the patient
  • Minimized deviation due to body position change (minimization of the hydrostatic effect)
  • Suitable for all sizes, no different cuff sizes or cleaning necessary
  • Correlation of blood pressure with sleep-related events
SOMNOmedics uses an innovative patented algorithm to measure blood pressure via the Pulse Transit Time (PTT). The PTT is the time required for the pulse wave to propagate along the vessel wall between two defined points. In the case of the SOMNOtouch™ RESP – From the left ventricle of the heart (defined by the ´R´peak of the ECG) – to the detection of the pulse wave at the finger tip (detected by the plethysmograph).

Taking a one point calibration at the beginning of the sleep study allows us to `set` the software‘s algorithm – and measure blood pressure continuously throughout the measurement. Because every single pulse wave is detected, a continuous “Beat-to-Beat”- recording and analysis is possible. Reduce artifacts and increase the number of reliable data points – all in a continuous, non-invasive and non-reactive way.
