Smart guide setup walks patient through sensor placement: The Alice NightOne Smart Guide Setup displays illuminated sensor indicators that walks the patient through sensor placement one by one. The indicators will change from yellow to green when a good quality signal is detected. The device uses the same sensors recommended by the AASM for in-lab studies. The device has 3 sensors (effort belt, cannula and oximeter) and a built-in body position sensor that provide seven channels of data (body position, pressure flow, snore, respiratory effort, SpO2, pleth and pulse rate).
Enhanced Good Study Indicator: The Good Study Indicator (GSI) feature allows you to know how much good quality data has been gathered before the device is returned to your lab. Flow, effort and SpO2 signal quality is monitored throughout the night. In the morning, your patient can press the User Button and the GSI visually displays the amount of good-quality data in 25-percent increments. If a problem with a sensor significantly hinders the collection of good data, this is also displayed.
Auto-on, recording starts as soon as belt is buckled: The “Auto-on” feature turns on the device as soon as the RIP belt is clicked in place; no need for patients to push a ‘start’ button. The integrated connection eliminates the need for an external effort wire set. The “smart guide” sequence guides patients through the setup process easily and provides feedback to the patient along the way.
Bluetooth connectivity to therapy devices: A wireless connection is available to Bluetooth-enabled Philips Respironics’ PAP devices. This connection allows for the flow, pressure and leak therapy channels from the PAP device to synch and record with the Alice NightOne respiratory effort, SpO2 and body position channels. A clinician can use this studydata to measure efficacy of PAP therapy.
