Conshohocken, Pennsylvania  --  Medical device company CardioNet (NASDAQ: BEAT) has announced the launch of a new clinical indicator for sleep disorders.

Called the SomNet, the system has the potential to identify patients with a high likelihood of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea by measuring cyclic variation of heart rate.

“There is a high prevalence of sleep disorders like sleep apnea in the cardiovascular and arrhythmia population,” said Randy Thurman, CEO of CardioNet. “The data collected by SomNet is extremely valuable information that can be captured from our existing MCOT ECG signal. If clinically appropriate, physicians may choose to refer patients with CVHR patterns to sleep centers for further diagnostic testing, to determine if they have sleep apnea or another serious sleep disorder.”
