Information on SleepCheck and how it assesses your risk of obstructive sleep apnoea.
Who can take the SleepCheck test?
Anyone aged 18 years and over can take the SleepCheck test. SleepCheck is available in the EU, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong. SleepCheck is not cleared and available in other jurisdictions. If you, or someone you know experiences common symptoms of obstructive sleep apnoea such as loud snoring, difficulty breathing or staying asleep (insomnia), they should take the SleepCheck test. Other symptoms could include waking up with a dry mouth, headache, tiredness or excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia).
How does SleepCheck assess your risk of obstructive sleep apnoea?
SleepCheck analyses your breathing and snore sounds during your sleep. The app’s built in algorithms then determine your apnoea hypopnoea index (AHI) number. SleepCheck uses this information as part of your assessment for obstructive sleep apnoea risk (low, medium, high, or very high). It does not identify risk of central sleep apnoea.
How accurate are the SleepCheck results?
In a 308 patient clinical study performed in Australia, SleepCheck’s algorithms were shown to accurately identify obstructive sleep apnoea when compared to a simultaneous at-home comprehensive sleep study. The algorithms determine the apnoea hypopnoea index (AHI) during sleep. AHI is a measure of the number of pauses in breathing that a person experiences per hour of sleep. An AHI of 5/h is considered to be mild obstructive sleep apnoea, while an AHI greater than 30/h is considered severe1.
Where is SleepCheck available?
SleepCheck is available in the EU, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong. SleepCheck is not cleared and available in other jurisdictions.
How long does it take to give me a result?
During your sleep, the test constantly analyses your breathing and snore sounds. Once you finish recording, the analysis process starts immediately. It can take between 20 – 60 seconds to provide a result, depending on your smartphone.
