FAQ about the sleep triage
How long does the screening last?
You can use the oximeter as many times as you want during the period of 2 (two) days. Then, you must return to the pharmacy you provided or to the address determined by SleepUp.
Do I have to return the oximeter?
Yes. The oximeter must be returned within the period specified in the contract. Returns will vary according to the purchase channel (pharmacies or online).
Do I need to keep my cell phone on during the exam?
No. The device stores up to 3 (three) records, eliminating the need to use the cell phone in real time.
What is ODI?
IDO is the acronym for Oxygen Desaturation Index. It serves as a parameter to assess the degree of severity of obstructive sleep apnea. It is calculated from how many drops in oxygen ≥ 3% or 4% there were during the exam.
How many medical reports will I get?
The combo includes the generation of 1 (one) report with personalized guidelines, exportable in PDF, in addition to the observations of health professionals (psychologist and sleep physiotherapist) who will be conducting the included 15-minute evaluations.
What is the recommended time to use the oximeter during screening?
We recommend using it for at least 6 hours for the most accurate results. In order to generate your medical report, you must use the oximeter one night for at least 4 hours.
What are evaluations with sleep specialists for?
Assessments are included to provide you with a more assertive and humanized therapeutic direction related to your exam results.
Is it safe to self-diagnose after the exam?
No. Never make a self-diagnosis! Take the results to your doctor or specialized health professionals for further guidance on the ideal treatment and therapy options for your case.
