ARES for Dentists - OSA diagnostics

A truly next-generation device, ARES™ (FDA approved) is worn on the forehead and stores up to three nights of nocturnal data. Comfortable and designed to be worn in all sleep positions, ARES™ was created to be worn at home, where it’s easier to gather an accurate profile of the patient’s breathing and sleep. Engineered to integrate physiological data acquired in-home with clinical history and anthropomorphic data to determine the presence and severity of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Untreated OSA affects quality of life, health and mortality

Clinical research shows that it is linked strongly to a range of serious, even life-threatening, chronic diseases such as stroke, heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, obesity and coronary heart disease. However, awareness is low and we believe that about 90% of people who have OSA remain undiagnosed and untreated. Dentists are waking up to the opportunity and SleepMed is here to help.

Take our Sleep Risk Test and then (if necessary) our proprietary, clinically-validated screener which assesses OSA risk and severity with over 90% accuracy
