New software from EnsoData is designed to provide a faster reading of sleep data for sleep apnea patients, as reported by the Wisconsin State Journal.

A Madison startup says its goal — to help people with sleep apnea — is not just a pipe dream.

EnsoData’s software automates the analysis of sleep data to get a faster, more accurate reading on patients than current methods, says co-founder Chris Fernandez.

“We can identify all the times where the patient stops breathing or the air flow is greatly reduced throughout the night,” he said.

Sleep clinics in San Francisco and in Austin, Texas, are trying the technology in pilot projects and three other sleep clinics have signed letters of intent, or preliminary nods to use the young company’s product when federal regulators approve it, Fernandez said.

EnsoData’s software imports standard data such as brain waves, blood oxygen levels, respiratory signals and heart rates and analyzes the information, he said.
