Home testing devices for sleep apnoea backed for NHS use

Five home-testing devices for obstructive sleep apnoea hypopnoea syndrome (OSAHS), a potentially dangerous condition affecting 2.5 million adults in the UK, have been recommended for NHS use by NICE.

OSAHS is a sleep-disordered breathing condition with potentially serious long-term effects, which is most common in people who are overweight and affects approximately 5% of the UK population.
