Sleep Tracking Device
#1
I would like to find the best sleep tracker home device possible. I understand that they will not match the sleep lab polysomnography, but I think that there are some things which a patient can do at home. My goal is to measure how well my sleep therapy is working. Does anyone have a recommendation?

From my research these seem to be the options:

1) Pulse oximetry (Contec CMS50) with Sleepyhead software.

2) Itamar-Medical WatchPAT. Rx Required and very expensive. Used for at home sleep studies.

3) Actiwatch from Phillips. Rx Required.

4) Wrist activity trackers (iWatch, Jawbone, Garmin, Fitbit, Basis, Misfit, Withings)

5) Contact-less activity trackers (Withings Aura, Beddit, and Luna)

6) SleepRate from Stanford

7) Smart phone apps (Sleepbot, SleepCycle, SnoreLab)

8) Smart CPAP machines like Philips Respironics tracking software

Hi QueF,

There are a lot of aspects that can be measured: EEG, cardiac rhythm, heart rate, oxygen saturation, body temperature, flow of nasal and mouth breathing, respiratory effort, limb movement, eye movement, etc...
I think it depends on your (suspected) condition on what you could (want to) measure. What kind of sleep therapy for what do you do?

Thanks for the reply. I have an AHI of 16 and a high arousal rate, approximately 40 times per hour in REM. I will try an oral appliance first and would like to home test to see if it is effective in lowering my AHI and arousal rate.

Many thanks for any advice on how to best measure at home.
