The PAT curriculum

Practical exercises for WatchPAT users

The measurement of peripheral arterial tonometry (PAT technology for short) has led to a significant increase in patient satisfaction with measurements at night in recent years. It is a new, innovative method for outpatient sleep diagnostics in patients with suspected obstructive sleep apnea. Due to the so-called “PAT technology”, this procedure does not use constricting chest and abdomen straps, EEG leads and nasal cannula. With the help of the Institute of Sleep Medicine, you can learn the basics and, in advanced courses, manual editing similar to a polysomnography (PSG).
