Sleep Apnea Testing

 

We provide at-home testing for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) for the general public and for Department of Transportation (DOT).  Board certified sleep physicians analyze test results from the home sleep study to confirm the existence of OSA, allowing you to purchase CPAP and AutoPAP equipment for treating your sleep disorder.

 

The process is a fast, convenient, effective, and more affordable solution for diagnosing sleep apnea.

Benefits Of Our Sleep Apnea Home Sleep Test

 

A home sleep test for detecting sleep apnea is a great alternative to lengthy and costly sleep studies. Customers appreciate the home sleep test for many reasons:

  • Faster results - When undergoing a traditional sleep study, the results of your test may take longer to analyze. With our home sleep test, the turnaround on your results are fast, and one of our patient care representatives will be in touch in case you have any questions about your test results.

  • More affordable - A traditional sleep study can be very expensive. By choosing our home sleep test, you can cut your sleep apnea testing costs dramatically.

  • Easy setup - You won’t be hooked up to a plethora of wires with our home sleep test. Instead, you can just position the device, heart rate monitor, and nasal tubing before drifting off to sleep.

  • DOT-approved - Our test is approved by the Department of Transportation (DOT), so if you need to undergo testing to remain compliant with your licensing and company, our test is an excellent alternative to a pricey sleep study if you need to be tested for sleep apnea.

  • Greater comfort - Going in for a traditional sleep study can be uncomfortable, as you are away from home and need to try and sleep while being monitored as well as being attached to multiple devices. Instead of doing this, you can do your sleep apnea testing from the comfort of your own bed.

What is Sleep Apnea and Why I Should Care

 

Obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder resulting in abnormal breathing during sleep.  It is believed to affect between 2%-9% of individuals and is often undiagnosed.  The disorder is associated with daytime sleepiness and elevated risks of automobile accidents, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease. 

There are several types of sleep apnea, but the most common is obstructive sleep apnea. This type of apnea occurs when your throat muscles intermittently relax and block your airway during sleep. A noticeable sign of obstructive sleep apnea is snoring.
