Utilizing a proprietary algorithm for combining ECG, SpO2, optional airflow and derived respiratory information collected via OxyHolter, LX Sleep provides the most inexpensive, convenient, at-home, multi-parameter, unattended sleep analysis to diagnose OSA and provide an accurate AHI. Suitable for CPAP prescription.
Additional LX Sleep Requirements:
- You will need a HE/LX Analysis license that allows for LX Sleep. This license file comes with your software and once installed will be labeled license.ini.
- NorthEast Monitoring OxyHolter (DR180 Series with OxyHolter or OxyHolter/A cable) required
LX® Sleep software applies proprietary algorithms to data collected by NorthEast Monitoring’s OxyHolter to provide a simple alternative to the PSG sleep lab experience to accurately identify OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea). This convenient HST (Home Sleep Test) device provides a conforming methodology for multi-parameter, overnight, unattended sleep study that is described in CMA’s NCD (National Coverage Decision) CAG-00093R2.
LX Sleep defines epochs of normal versus SDB (Sleep Disordered Breathing). Then it performs pattern recognition on ECG and SpO2 signals; and applies a linear discriminant analysis and an age-based classifier to derive an AHI (Apnea Hypopnea Index). An AHI < 5 represents no clinically significant apnea; 5 < AHI < 15 represents mild apnea; AHI >15 represents moderate-to-severe apnea.*
Current users of Holter LX Analysis and the tried-and-true DR181 can easily add the LX Sleep software option and an OxyHolter cable, thereby creating the most accurate, easy-to-use OSA detection system on the market today.
