SleepImage ring-is it accurate?
SleepImage ring-is it accurate?
I was diagnosed with severe OSA in 2014 (56 events per hour), via a little box strapped to my chest with a cannula attached (home test). I immediately got an APAP which reduced my ASI to ~3, and this fixed everything.

In 2017 I reduced my weight from 205 to 175 (I'm not fat anymore!). I'd like to think the weight was the real factor behind the OSA. I still wear the mask nightly, but do I really need to anymore? If I relax my throat and breath as if I were asleep, there is no obstruction. When I weighed 205 and tried to do this, there was plenty of obstruction.

So I asked for a test. This has turned out to be a SleepImage ring that I will wear for 2 nights, forwarding the findings to a company in Tampa, which was the recommendation from my primary care doctor.

I'm a little wary of the accuracy. Have any of you had any experience with such a device? Does it seem like if the test comes back negative that I can stop using the APAP? Or is that maybe just wishful thinking?
