Home Sleep Study
Did your doctor tell you to get a sleep study? Are you concerned that your snoring may be interfering with your sleep quality, or that itís a sign of sleep apnea? A home sleep study is a convenient and affordable way to get the facts.
The Snoring Center now offers home sleep studies. Performed in the comfort of your own home, our sleep studies are more convenient, less expensive and more representative of your true sleeping habits.
What Is a Sleep Study?
A lab-based sleep study, also known as polysomnography (PSG), is a study used to diagnose sleep disorders. While you sleep, electronic equipment monitors your heart rhythms, breathing and other bodily functions.
Traditional sleep studies involve spending the night at an unfamiliar sleep lab, with various electrodes and wires connected to your body. While accurate, these test are expensive, inconvenient and many patients have difficulty getting a good nights sleep in the unfamiliar environment.
Home Sleep Studies
Home Sleep studies use a simple device that you take home and wear to bed. Bring it back the next day, and we can evaluate your data, obtain a diagnosis and discuss treatment options.
To undergo a sleep study at home, patients are evaluated by our medical staff and sent home with a portable device that is worn to bed for one night. The simple device fits on your wrist like a watch and connects to the fingertips. You simply push a button and enjoy a good nights sleep.
The device can be returned the next day, and the data is immediately available for interpretation by our board certified ear nose and throat Doctors and can be acted upon in the same visit.
