Care pathway OSAS: Manual updated - GHC

With the OSAS care pathway, as a general practitioner you can rule out that a patient has OSAS (sleep apnea). This is done with a pulse oximetry measurement with the OSAsense watch. The patient does this nocturnal measurement himself in the home setting. In addition, the patient fills out a questionnaire online. Diagnostics via OSAsense is patient-friendly, quick, low-threshold, relatively inexpensive and intended only for exclusion diagnostics. The OSAS care pathway is not a screening: referral to a sleep center remains necessary to demonstrate OSAS.
