While CPAP is viewed as the gold standard in treatment of sleep disordered breathing conditions, there are other viable options as well. These alternative treatments may be prescribed for patients who meet the criteria for the therapy or for those who are CPAP intolerant.
Some cases of sleep disordered breathing may be directly related to the position that the patient is sleeping in and can be exacerbated while the person is sleeping supine (on their back). In this case, the patient may be prescribed a sleep positioner device, such as Night Shift. This device is worn around the persons neck and will vibrate if/when the person rolls onto their back and continue until they roll into a new position.
The Night Shift is a clinically proven solution for patients with positional obstructive sleep apnea (POSA) and snorers.
Worn on the back of the neck, Night Shift begins to vibrate when the users start to back-sleep. The vibration slowly increases in intensity until the user changes positions.
Night Shift is also an intelligent, interactive monitor that measures sleep quality and the frequency of unhealthy loud snoring.
The internet-based Report Portal enables users to monitor the effectiveness of the therapy and its improvements in sleep quality.
