OSAsense deployment - Dokkum GP center

The Dokkum GP Center now offers diagnostics for Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) using OSAsense. This service includes a validated online questionnaire and an overnight saturation measurement with a special watch-shaped saturation meter.

The OSAsense algorithm detects sleep apnea with high sensitivity (~100%) and specificity (>70%). By using OSAsense before referring patients to a sleep center, unnecessary and costly investigations can be avoided for low-risk patients, while patients at significant risk can be quickly and effectively referred for diagnosis and treatment. If you experience symptoms such as snoring with breath stops, it is recommended that you make an appointment with your primary care physician.
