What is the apnea risk evaluation system?
This is the apnea risk evaluation system or ARES. It's a small device made by Watermark Medical which is an ambulatory sleep study device that I can send home with my patients to either screen for if I think they might have possible sleep apnea or we use it after they've had their oral appliance made to see if our treatment is improved. It just mounts on the patient's head like this with some straps and these little cords here, this just goes around their ears. Very comfortable, very easy to sleep with. And it just gives us a little help on diagnosing to see if my treatment or oral appliance therapy is helping the patient improve their sleep apnea.
