Samaritan Hospital is the first to offer sonoendoscopia, which is made by placing a flexible fiberoptic device in the nose of the patient

The Hospital de Sao Paulo in Brazil is a pioneer in the clinical application of sonoendoscopia, as the protocol for its use came from the doctoral thesis of ENT of the institution, Fábio Rabelo, a member of a team of otolaryngology at the Hospital, led by Dr. Eric Thuler.

This test allows the patient to visualize the pharynx under conditions that simulate normal sleep, thus locating the point of the snoring and sleep apnea. "This is a complementary procedure polysomnography, which is the test that determines the severity of apnea and not its location," explains Thuler.

To perform the procedure was not necessary to purchase new equipment, but to adapt the use of fiberoptic endoscopic examination for this purpose. "The examination is performed by means of this flexible device that is inserted into the patient's nose, which is under light sedation, simulating normal sleep," says the doctor.

The technique is suitable for people who already have the diagnosis of snoring and / or sleep apnea by polysomnography, and a fundamental test for the choice of treatment should be individualized according to the location of the problem.
