With the REVAMP App for Clinicians you can view several types of sleep apnea related patient data.

  • Treatment Adherence – Shows the total number of hours that the patient used the PAP device each night. Bars are colored red if they are below the 4-hour minimum and green if they are at or above the minimum. You may hover over a bar in the graph to see a tooltip with the date and value of the bar.
  • PAP Patterns of Use – Shows a 24-hour display of the actual times that the patient used the PAP device each day or night.

You may hover over a bar in the graph to see a tooltip with the date and value of the bar.
  • Apnea-Hypopnea Index – Shows the patient's average AHI each day or night he or she used the device. Bars are colored green if they are below the 10-events-per-hour threshold and red if they are at or above it. You may hover over a bar in the graph to see a tooltip with the date and value of the bar.
  • Apnea Event Types – Shows stacked bars that add up to the patient's total AHI for each day or night that he or she used the device. The segments of the bars represent the different apnea types: Unknown Apnea Index (grey), Clear Apnea Index (Light Blue), Hypopnea Index (Purple), and Obstructive Apnea Index (Dark Blue). You may click on any of these types in the graph legend to show or hide the segments of that type in the graph.
  • Mask Leak – Shows the patient's average mask leak in liters per minute each day or night that he or she used the device. A threshold line is shown at 24 L/min.
