This Home Sleep Testing Solution offered by Philips will support clinicians in doing a sleep test for potential sleep apnea patients in the comfort of their homes. This solution is very pragmatic, especially in the ongoing pandemic since both patients and doctors are concerned about minimizing infection risk and reducing hospital visits. The solution consists of a chest effort belt, a pulse oximeter, and a single-use nasal cannula which capture vitals overnight. The report can be generated in a matter of a few minutes with automated software.

Introducing the company’s new initiatives on sleep health, Yashica Verma, Business Lead, Sleep, and Respiratory Care, Philips Indian Subcontinent said Sleep disorders are on the rise in India, with 7%-9%[1] of the Indian adult population suffering from sleep apnea.

Patients with underlying baseline cardiac diseases are also at risk of getting sleep apnea. With symptoms like unwarranted daytime sleepiness and trouble in concentrating, the disorder impacts productivity and overall quality of life. Aligned with our commitment to provide high-quality sleep care, we are proud to partner with Indian Sleep Disorders Association and Dr. J.C. Suri to bring in first-of-its-kind comprehensive online training in sleep medicine.

As a global leader in sleep health, these initiatives are the logical next step for us to further underscore the importance of Sleep Medicine and maintaining healthy sleeping habits. Dr. J.C. Suri highlighted Sleep is an essential component of health. While people across the world are becoming more educated and aware of the importance of sleep health, the limited number of doctors practicing this specialty is a restricting factor for patients. With initiatives like the certificate course on Comprehensive Sleep Medicine’, it will be easier for patients in India to have access to sleep specialists and world-class technologies to treat sleep disorders.”

Philips aims to provide solutions that meet the growing and evolving needs of consumers and healthcare professionals alike. In line with its focus on offering quality, accessible and value-based care, the company also provides a ‘No-cost EMI’ offer on its products under the Respironics range of sleep and respiratory solutions.
