At our office, Dr. Chetan Parikh offers sleep apnea therapy, and he provides two high-quality and accurate portable sleep monitors: Nox-T32 and MediByte® Junior. Patients can use either of these sleep monitors to record their sleeping habits, and Dr. Parikh will use them to determine if any new oral appliances are working correctly.
