What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)?
The VirtuOx HOSTTM home sleep-testing platform can diagnose patients with the two most common forms of Sleep Apnea, Central and Obstructive Apnea, in the comfort and privacy of their home.
We utilize a variety of HOSTTM devices including the highly acclaimed ARES™ home sleep testing device that integrates physiological data acquired in-home with clinical history and anthropomorphic data to determine the presence and severity of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
OSA is the most undiagnosed sleep disorder in the world. Sleep apnea is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, high blood pressure, arrhythmias, diabetes, and serious accidents due to fatigue and sleepiness. Patients with untreated sleep apnea have shown to incur double the healthcare costs of those that have been diagnosed and treated.
Currently, there is a large untapped market potential in the sleep disorder market worldwide. Under-diagnosed and under-treated, studies suggest that over 30 million Americans suffer from some form of sleep disorder.
Physicians have become more aware of the seriousness of this condition, and proactive diagnosis and treatment have become more common in recent years. However, even with this increased attention from the medical community, 95% of individuals suffering from this condition remain undiagnosed.
The Virtuox HOSTTM solution enables patients throughout the country to easily and cost-effectively diagnose OSA. Get HOSTED© Today!
Since Medicare does not allow a DME to courier this device, we mail these devices to and from the patient's home.
Once we receive the device back from the patient, our Respiratory Therapist scores the study and our Board Certified Sleep Physicians Interpret the test. The finished Interpretation is sent to the DME and to the treating physician, who may order CPAP, BIPAP, or TAP oral appliance therapy.
The Home Sleep Test devices are owned by VirtuOx. All costs associated with ownership, shipping and receiving are incurred by VirtuOx, not the DME.
DME providers can increase their orders for Home Sleep Tests and increase their PAP patient census by utilizing VirtuOx customizable marketing flyers, sample prescriptions and policies & procedures.
