The Lausanne NoSAS Score test allows the detection of sleep apnea based on five criteria: neck circumference body mass index (ratio between height and weight), sex, age and snoring. Each criterion corresponds to a number of points to identify patients who may suffer from sleep apnea. This tool allows effective prevention by all non-sleep specialists, whether they are doctors or not, so that they can assess the need for a specialized examination. Delivered as a digital application, this test is among the first to provide a reliable and economical healthcare tool to make the diagnosis of sleep apnea easier.
