Smart Phone App For Diagnosing Sleep Apnea


There is an app being developed by The University of Washington that seeks to replace traditional in lab sleep assessment with a simple smartphone app. The app, "pushes inaudible sonar sounds from the phone to a patient that bounce back and determine variations in breathing that can mean a patient suffers from sleep apnea."  

Thus far, the trials conducted have been very successful.  Only patients classified as "borderline" were not appropriately identified by the app.  Further trial tests will be conducted in patients' homes.
