Obstructive sleep apnea affects millions of people in the United States, leading to exhaustion and a greater risk of serious health complications. In order for our doctors to treat OSA they need to be able to identify it. Instead of subjecting yourself to a sleep study in a lab setting, what if the test could be conducted from the comfort of your own home? Sleep Testing offers exactly that to our patients who have difficulty sleeping.
How Does Sleep Testing Work?
In order to obtain an accurate diagnosis we need a scenario that best reflects how you really sleep. What better place than your own bedroom? We are one of the few practices that offer this technology to comfortably diagnose your problems resting.
We send you home with a device that fits around your wrist and obtains raw data of your sleep habits. You don’t need to wear a headset or any other cumbersome devices that would interfere with your ability to rest. When you return the device to the office, the doctor can examine the data and create an accurate diagnosis.
What are the Benefits?
There are a number of benefits, including:
- Works from your own home
- Comfortable to wear
