Setup

Instructions

Videos

  • Staff Instructions – Follow these steps to prepare Belun Ring for the patients, upload data and download reports.
  • Ring size – Make sure you choose a tight fit Ring size for the patient to secure data quality for analysis and reporting.
  • Patient Instructions – The procedure your patient will go through during the test (video guide)

Test Duration

  • Minimum 1 hour of sleep is required to generate a sleep report. 6-hour recording is recommended.
  • Testing for 3 nights is recommended for suspected Obstructive Sleep Apnea.  Multiple night testing help reduce first-night effect and compare night-to-night variation.

Exclusion Criteria

  • Patients on home oxygen, non-invasive ventilator, diaphragmatic pacing, or nerve stimulator
  • Patients with pacemaker, defibrillator, left ventricular assist device, or status post cardiac transplantation
  • Patients with atrial fibrillation

Preparation

  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine during the afternoon and evening before test.
  • Don’t nap during the day.
  • Effect of sleep medicines should be noted.  Certain classes of sleep medicines induce muscle relaxation and more respiratory events.
