The SNAP System combines our proprietary digital recorder with sophisticated and patented acoustic and spectral analysis algorithms, which have been cleared by the FDA. The system has two main functions that are performed simultaneously:

  • Detection of sleep-disordered breathing (i.e. apnea, hypopnea, oxygen desaturation).
  • Identify, help to analyze, and quantify the different types of snoring patterns.
The SNAP Test is the most cost-effective method of evaluating patient's for sleep-disordered breathing. It is done in the patient's home making it simple to use. The system represents a major advance in technology for diagnosing sleep-related breathing disorders. The SNAP system provides primary care physicians, as well as specialists (otolaryngologists, pulmonologists, and neurologists), with valuable diagnostic information to help select the best course of treatment for patients.

After a complete in-office demonstration, the patient takes home a SNAP digital recording system including a sound collection cannula and oximetry sensor. No technician is required for equipment setup. Data collection is performed in the comfort of the home where the patient places the SNAP sound collection and air flow device on their upper lip to collect oral and nasal respiratory sound and airflow information for up to 7 hours. However, periods shorter than seven hours may be all that is necessary for analysis. In addition, an oximetry sensor is placed on a finger and all data is digitally recorded during sleep. The recorded data is returned to our laboratory where analysis is performed using SNAP's proprietary FDA cleared computer technology and software algorithms. Trained technicians and medical consultants review all data and a report is promptly prepared and forwarded to the referring physician. The analysis includes information about the apnea (A), hypopnea (H), apnea-hypopnea index (RDI), acoustic spectral profile of snoring, oxygen saturation and pulse rate.

The SNAP Test Brings the latest technology to your office!
  • The SNAP Test is unique because it provides comprehensive, relevant data on snoring that no other test provides and at the same time detects sleep apnea.
  • Patients receive a thorough in-office demonstration confidently preparing them to conduct the test in the privacy of their own home, thus improving test compliance
  • The SNAP Test is easy to read and the results are reviewed and confirmed by experienced physicians.
  • SNAP Laboratories performs the data analysis. A report is faxed to the physicians office within a few days and a hard copy is also mailed.
  • The Snap Test improves patient selection for CPAP and surgical treatments and provides outcome documentation.
  • SNAP Laboratories completes all medical insurance billing for patient
