PHD Medical Inc. provides diagnostic testing software (NPoses) and services for the identification of obstructive sleep apnea in children. This service facilitates the diagnosis and prioritization of treatment for children suspected of having Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Pediatric Sleep Apnea Testing

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when a sleeping child struggles to breath against a blockage in the nose or throat. Sometimes the blockage is so severe that the child is awaken several times per night. Parents often recognize this as restless sleep. Poor sleep quality in children may lead to daytime problems such as below average school performance, tiredness, decreased attention span, poor appetite and growth and, in severe cases, to heart and lung problems. Our FDA approved expert system allows parents to perform home based diagnostic testing for children suspected of having obstructive sleep apnea. This type of home based testing is more reflective of a child’s normal pattern of breathing during sleep. Using pertinent information collected from the referring physician and parents in conjunction with the data captured from the overnight study, PHD Medical’s expert system can accurately diagnose whether or not a child suffers from obstructive sleep apnea, the severity, as well as make recommendations about treatment.
