Acute respiratory insufficiency



Reaching out to sleep apnea patients

It has been shown that remote monitoring of indicators regarding sleep apnea patients increase their compliance level and enables an easy and efficient follow-up.
When connected between the CPAP and the patient circuit, the medical device NOWAPI enables remote monitoring of compliance with CPAP treatment.
Connectivity enabling better care 

It has been shown that an increase in CPAP usage time improves clinical benefits

NOWAPI measures pressure at the patient circuit and estimates:

  • Compliance
  • Efficiency: Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI)
  • Average leakage
  • Average pressure


Universal compatibility with CPAPs    

NOWAPI’s compatibility have been tested on the main continuous and automatic positive airway pressure devices currently used at home, with or without a humidifier.
The full list of compatible devices is available below.

Displaying data in one single system    

Thanks to precise detection of residual respiratory events, NOWAPI has proven to provide performance equivalent to that of CPAPs.

NOWAPI can send updated data every day on various web interfaces.

Compliance and other relevant treatment data from all equiped patients are calculated by NOWAPI and displayed in the same format, enabling a quick analysis.
