Diagnosis

Procedure

Telemedicine Diagnosis

Usually, it is necessary to schedule an appointment with a general practitioner, who then refers you for a sleep apnea diagnosis to a pulmonologist, sleep medicine doctor, or ENT physician. With us, from January 2024, you will have the opportunity to receive a diagnosis for sleep apnea without visiting the doctor's office.

Phone Appointment

Through the Silen Sleep Doctor App, you can schedule a phone appointment where a specialist will conduct an anamnesis with you.

Measurement

Subsequently, the measuring device will be delivered to your home. You sleep with this easy-to-use device for one night. The data is encrypted and uploaded to the cloud through a wireless connection with your smartphone.

Diagnosis

Your specialist will promptly evaluate the measurement data. Afterwards, you will receive a notification in the app. In a subsequent phone call, the doctor will explain the next steps to you.

Affoltern Hospital

Neutrality

The Right Choice for You

Silent Sleep offers neutral, expert care for people with sleep apnea, as not every therapy is suitable for every patient. To ensure that you find the right therapy for your sleep apnea, we have completely outsourced diagnosis and consultation. Dr. Marcus Hesse from Affoltern Hospital will inform you about possible therapies, such as CPAP or Silent Sleep Training, after evaluating your measurement data. Depending on the results, further steps, such as additional examinations, will also be discussed.
