Modus Five has launched a new educational and user-friendly multimedia
software program called Sleep Disorder: a Patient Education
Multimedia Course. The software program presents helpful information
by using rich graphics, interactive content, videos and animations.
Dr. Aaron Morse from Central Coast Sleep Disorders Center in Santa Cruz,
Calif. has practiced sleep medicine for 30 years and helped supervise
the program's development. "This software, developed by sleep
professionals employs animation, video interviews and good content in a
user friendly and interactive way. It should go a long way towards
raising awareness that sleep disorders are common and treatable."
The software program offers step-by-step lessons on obstructive sleep
apnea, insomnia, restless legs syndrome, narcolepsy, and delayed
sleep-phase syndrome, which are among the most common sleep-related
conditions affecting millions of people world-wide. Patients,
physicians, nurses, medical educators and health care organizations can
utilize this software program to learn about the physiology, symptoms,
causes, diagnosis and treatment options for each sleep disorder.
High-definition videos show the different stages of sleep apnea
treatments including initial visits, polysomnography sessions, viewing
and understanding test results, and pediatric options. Dr. Jonathon
Wagner of Santa Cruz Dental Group also describes a variety of dental
appliances used as sleep apnea aids and their benefits.
"The Sleep Disorder software designed by Modus Five reflects their
excellence in designing medical and patient education. Their clear and
comprehensive Sleep Disorder product merits attention," said Nancy
Rothstein, The Sleep Ambassador® and member of the Board of the American
Sleep Apnea Association.
