Alice PDx Diagnostic System

Category: Diagnostics

The Alice PDx portable diagnostic recording device is intended for Obstructive Sleep Apnea screening, follow-up and diagnostic assessment of cardio-respiratory sleep disorders.

The flexible and portable sleep testing system incorporates advanced features required to meet today's industry needs. It’s compact size is perfect for home sleep testing needs while providing capabilities of basic screening to advanced diagnostic evaluation. The system satisfies the portable testing requirements for levels II, III and IV. The Alice PDx enables patients to be tested outside of the lab – and in the comfort of their own home - without compromising study results, and helps clinicians avoid the costs associated with retesting.

Philips receives MDEA award for Alice PDx 
The Alice PDx Portable Sleep System is a winner in the 2010 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) competition, in the category of general hospital devices and therapeutic products.

Features and benefits:
- Good Study Indicator – The Good Study Indicator is predicated on airflow and oximeter signal quality. It displays   the amount of "good quality data" needed for a study to be complete and valid. The indicator measures patient   airflow, gathered by the nasal cannula and/or the oral thermistor, airflow from therapy devices, and pulse oximetry,   gathered by the SpO2 sensor. Without either of these signals, the sleep study would be declared diagnostically   invalid because of insufficient data.

  The GSI visually displays the amount of good quality data in 25-percent increments on the Alice PDx display   screen. As a result, a patient using the Alice PDx can easily communicate this information to the healthcare   provider who can then determine if the patient needs to repeat the study. The provider can then educate the patient   remotely on how to better apply the sensors, and have the patient repeat the study. The provider is spared the   frustration of receiving insufficient study data and the inconvenience and effort involved in scheduling patients for a   repeat study.

- Color-Coded Labels – located around the perimeter of the device, indicate where to connect the various sensor   leads. The display shows the patient only the sensors that need to be connected. The sensor information and   indicators help patients place the sensors correctly and reduce the need for retesting due to application errors.

- Sensor Application Reference Guide – a helpful, color-coded, step-by-step diagram is included with the device to   walk patients through the appropriate application process.
