Quotes

"This data should help ease concerns about the long-term effects of caffeine treatment in premature infants."
Mr. Ping Chen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Dehaier Medical, stated, "After several clinical trials, optimizations and upgrades, our ready-to-use, effective and cloud-based systems and products are ready to be a strong supplementary system to the traditional PSG sleep respiratory diagnosis approach. We expect our system will increase the demand for outpatient sleep monitoring and diagnosis services, and will make cloud-based data and patient record-keeping an attainable goal. In addition, we expect revenues from our system sales will be supplemented by ongoing revenues from sales of single-use PPG sensors. As we are about to provide the first batch of systems and products to our model hospitals, we will be able to quickly locate the OSAS patients, provide different models of CPAP devices, conduct treatment, and provide the curative effect evaluation services. We are excited about the opportunities this new productproduct line offers to users and our company."
...comprises an important area of research which deserves support and greater recognition by funding bodies, universities and public policy makers. "Sleep disorders, such as sleep apnoea, impact on a wide variety of chronic conditions, potentially leading to their development or worsening them, including diabetes, heart attacks, strokes and possibly even cancer. Successful treatment diminishes this risk but we still have a great deal of work to do in the area" she said
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "A high prevalence of obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome in our population (71%) may explain the low frequency of systemic nocturnal hypotension."
