Telenor Connexion provides French eHealth provider, SRETT, a connected solution for remote monitoring of patients affected by sleep apnea.
In Europe, approximately 2 to 5 % of the population suffer from sleep apnea. The disorder is characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep and this can cause drowsiness during the day as well as a broad spectrum of serious medical conditions.
One of the most common and effective treatments for moderate to severe sleep apnea is the use of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device. This device keeps the patient’s airway open during sleep by means of a flow of pressurized air into the throat.
French telehealth provider SRETT has developed T4P, a universal remote monitoring solution for all types of CPAP devices. The T4P is unique as it is the only solution adapted to fit all CPAP devices on the market. The connected T4P collects and analyzes data from the CPAP remotely and in real-time.
Reliable real-time data
With the T4P, device health professionals are able to provide a more proactive and efficient care for patients treated at home.The T4P provides them with tools and knowledge to empower patients to manage their condition from home – reducing travel time, hospital visits, and burdens on both the patient and the system, while improving the care teams’ efficiency and ability to follow patients. Patients benefit from increased, continous and personalized monitoring and experiences as well as an increased level of safety.
The communications solutions used for the connected T4P device is provided by Telenor Connexion. Data collected, recorded and analyzed by the medical device is transmitted anonymously over the GPRS network to a central server, where it is stored and processed.
On a daily basis the T4P collects key therapy indicators such as daily duration of therapy, mask leak rate, residual apnea and therapy pressure. The patient data is uploaded automatically to healthcare professionals facilitating personalized and ongoing monitoring of patients’ condition.

“Following the successful launch of the T4P in France, we are now looking to expand our market abroad. We have chosen Telenor Connexion as it is one of the most advanced connected solutions provider with its multi-operator solution.
