Nihon Kohden introduced a new lineup of sleep diagnostic products at the SLEEP 2012 meeting in Boston last week. The new Polysmith® version 9 provides new tools for diagnostics, lab management, and improved efficiency. Diagnostic tools like Stage Assist™ aim to reduce the time associated with staging sleep. ASV data have been integrated into reports and the database to allow for better tracking and management of patients with complex sleep apnea.

The company also introduced the IP addressable PSG-1100™ [501(k) pending], an advanced dedicated sleep amplifier, and the Nomad® Type III recorder, which can be used with all Polysmith software tools.
