All instruction will be provided by one of our Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (RPSGT) and a link below will show a video on how to use the device. The testing is easy to complete and a great alternative when assessing for obstructive sleep apnea. There are certain situations and medical conditions where home sleep testing may not be appropriate, our trained staff can help identify these situations.

The equipment consists of an effort belt, nasal pressure sensor and pulse oximetry. We will be able to monitor airflow, effort, heart rate and oxygen saturation during the study. All of our home sleep studies are manually scored and validated by a Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (RPSGT) to ensure accurate results. Our Board Certified Sleep Specialist will review the data and render an interpretation and recommendation. Based on the results, an in-lab study may be required.
If you are diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, our board certified sleep physician will discuss treatment options with you and develop a plan.
