Learn how Naresh M. Punjabi, MD, PhD and his team used the Nox Self-Applied Somnography™ (Nox SAS) to conduct home-based sleep studies with EEG on a large population.
Dr. Punjabi used the Nox A1s PSG system configured with the Nox SAS in a multicenter AIDS cohort study (MACS) of the natural and treated history of HIV infection in men, which started in the mid-1980s. Dr. Punjabi, who is Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine at the University of Miami, Millar School of Medicine, has collected somnography data on this study group since 2018.
“One of the challenges was how do you do studies for research in such a large population, which is in the thousands, and do it such that it’s cheap, simple and of good quality,” he said. “Successful home polysomnography with EEG using the Nox SAS was obtained in 90.2% of the sample.”
“Methods for Home-based Self-Applied Polysomnography” is the first of a three-part series by Nox Medical, See Everything at Once, on attended in-laboratory and unattended polysomnography studies.
