Remote Analysis can help you check your snoring
Snoring – a symptom of sleep apnea – can be a problem for both sufferers and those nearest and dearest to them. It is also an area that Remote Analysis has been looking at in terms of generating new diagnostic data that could help reduce or eliminate the recurrent episodes of airway obstructions and corresponding cessations of airflow and breathing typical of the condition.
To bring things even closer to the man and woman in the street, the company recently launched the Sleep Aid application for Apple’s iPhone, available in the Health & Fitness section of the iTunes App Store.
Sleep Aid makes it easy for users to determine whether they suffer from sleep apnea and would be advised to consult a doctor. Remote Analysis emphasises that only a doctor can make an appropriate diagnosis.
The application records if you snore and creates an easy-to-read graph. You can also listen to your breathing and snoring patterns. Sleep Aid includes samples of typical snoring and sleep apnea events that can be used for comparison purposes, as well as useful information about sleep apnea.
