COVID-19 UpdateAs the situation surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continues to develop, Watermark Medical’s focus on the health and safety of our staff, partners, customers and patients is our top priority. We are closely monitoring guidance from the CDC and other public health organizations and taking appropriate action to ensure we continue to provide uninterrupted technical support, as well as maintain clinical and diagnostic services for our home sleep testing clients. While most of our technical and clinical staff are working remotely, we currently maintain shipping/receiving and quality assurance services from our office to manage device maintenance and repair requirements.
A few questions regarding the coronavirus outbreak have been specifically asked about the cleaning processes of the ARES device. Our cleaning procedure (when followed as described in the ARES Product Guide) has been validated and meets agency guidelines to mitigate the transfer risk of bacteria and viruses. For our customers safety, the ARES User Guide intended to be given or reviewed with each patient, includes instructions for the patient to place the device back in the plastic bag to return to the issuing facility. Once cleaned, storing the ARES device in a new resealable plastic bag will help ensure that the ARES remains clean and ready for the next patient use. Those who clean the devices after patient use can limit their chance of exposure by proper use of gloves and frequent washing of their hands. We are monitoring guidelines from CDC and other regulatory agencies and will adjust our procedure if their recommendations change.

Initial patient evaluation by healthcare professional utilizing the ARES™ clinically validated sleep screening questionnaire and the ARES™ Home Sleep Test recommendation.
Healthcare professionals can disperse the ARES™ device from the office, or Watermark Medical can deliver the ARES™ system directly to the patient. The easy to use device is worn by the patient and collects data, which is then evaluated by licensed sleep technicians who gather, analyze, and consolidate the relevant sleep data.
Watermark Medical generates a concise sleep testing results report, which can be interpreted by a Board Certified sleep physician within the Watermark network. The ordering healthcare professional can then easily access the report via our secured cloud-based portal.
The sleep test report includes treatment recommendations for consideration by healthcare professionals, who can determine the appropriate course of treatment based on the diagnostic results. Watermark can help facilitate the connection to qualified treatment options.

Our ARES™ device is truly a revolutionary, next-generation diagnostic solution for OSA:
ARES™ is worn comfortably on the forehead and can store up to three nights of nocturnal data.
ARES™ is designed for maximum comfort and can be worn in every sleep position.
ARES™ is worn at home, so it’s easier to gather an accurate sleep and breathing profile for your patient.
This system is engineered to integrate physiological data acquired in-home with clinical history and anthropomorphic data. The ARES™ device can aid in the diagnosis of OSA giving healthcare providers all the information needed to provide their patients with an appropriate treatment plan.
Our complete system offers a turn-key solution that takes the patient through testing, diagnosis, and referral to a reliable and vetted member of our vast network of therapy providers, sleep, and medical experts.
