Home Sleep Testing is now an option for diagnosing sleep apnea and it has never been easier!
What is Home Sleep Testing?
A home sleep test is a simple-to-perform diagnostic procedure you will take in the comfort of your own home. While you sleep, the home sleep test device monitors your breathing and records pauses in your breathing known as Apneas. Home sleep testing is used to uncover Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) specifically; it is intended only for those patients who exhibit clinical signs and symptoms of OSA.
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
OSA is a condition where you stop breathing during sleep. An individual with OSA may not be aware they are having this difficulty breathing. Untreated, OSA can lead to excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue, as well as serious health problems such as high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes and stroke. The good news is, however, that treatment options are available for every sleep apnea sufferer!
