The sleep community was waiting for JawAc (Jaw Activity) signal to compensate for the inability to simply diagnose respiratory efforts that historically defined sleep disordered breathing (SDB), and for which substitutes with known and published limits were used. It is now demonstrated and published that the measurement of sagittal mouth movement (JawAc) is strongly correlated with respiratory efforts.
Assessing these respiratory efforts are essential to diagnose and manage SDB on a therapeutic level.

The amplitude of the signal JawAc (or Mandibular Movement – MM) is perfectly correlated to the intensity of the neural respiratory drive (EMGd Diaphragm activity).
JawAc recordings during one night estimate a similar RDI compared with traditional PSG in a group of symptomatic patients of all ages with or without co-morbidities. Moreover, the risk of misidentifying mild OSAS subjects as being normal remains very low

Midsagittal jaw movements analysis is a reliable method to measure sleep. In healthy and OSA adults, this device proved to be superior to actigraphy in terms of estimation of all sleep parameters and distinction of sleep-wake status.

Cheyne Stokes Breathing (CSB) is a poor prognosis condition that should be screened for in patients with heart failure or other severe neurological or kidney diseases. A simple device that detects jaw activities can accurately identify patients with CSB.

Mouth opening as a consequence of the lowering of the mandible is often observed when a child struggles to breathe against partial or complete upper airway obstruction.

Mouth opening associated with unintentional leaks may dramatically impact CPAP algorithm. Nomics proposes an innovative method for characterizing the determining factors of unintentional leak in patients with OSAS treated with CPAP.

SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND SAVE YOUR SLEEP
When an efficient CPAP pressure is applied, the mouth is almost closed and stable, like in healthy patients. Jawac signal is a simple and reliable indicator of CPAP effectiveness.
