Home Sleep Test

A home sleep test can determine if you suffer from sleep apnea. This very simple diagnostic test allows you to sleep in the comfort of your own home. Appointments are usually available same day or next day.

During your first appointment we will instruct you on how to hook up the screening device and answer any questions that you might have. The next day the patient brings back the screening device and we quickly look at the data to make sure it is acceptable to be scored by our analyst. If for some reason the test needs to be repeated the patient will take the device back home with them for another night. There is no additional charge if a test needs to be repeated.

Once our analyst has the screening test data it takes 7-10 days until the results are ready. The analyst provides a 3-4 page colour report with comments and suggestions. We then contact you with the results and send you a copy via email. Based on the results of the study immediate treatment may be recommended and/or a consultation with one of our physicians may be scheduled.

What is measured during your test:

  1. Oxygen saturation
  2. Airflow
  3. Snoring
  4. Heart rate
  5. Thoracic effort
  6. Body position
