Home Sleep Testing
Why do I need a sleep test?
The only way a doctor can diagnose obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and other sleep disorders is through a polysomnography (sleep study). This test records your brain waves, blood oxygen levels, heart rate, and breathing events as you sleep.
A recent test is required for sleep treatment. Some ask why they can’t get a snore appliance without a sleep test. This is because oral appliances vary in treatment certification. Not all snore appliances are certified to treat sleep disorders greater in severity to snoring. Thus, someone who does not know they have OSA, and is not tested, are still in harms way with just a snore appliance.
Sleep Test Options
You can get a home sleep test through us, potentially through your primary care physician or go to a sleep center that performs in-lab sleep tests. The benefit of getting a sleep test through is expediency, low cost and home comfort/natural sleeping environment. We do not profit from sleep testing.
Most insurances will assist with the cost. Renting a home sleep test has never been easier and more cost effective.
