Our office uses ResMed ApneaLink Air and Plus Home Sleep Testing devices to detect the diagnosis of sleep related breathing disorders. This monitors respiratory disturbances, nasal airflow, snoring and blood oxygen saturations.
Home sleep testing is done for one night only, unless a clinician has recommended differently. The decision to pursue a Home Sleep Test (HST) as opposed to an in-lab Polysomnogram (PSG) will be made after review of your symptoms and medical history with a provider.
If your test is negative for sleep apnea and there are still significant concerns that you may have sleep apnea, your provider may recommend an in-lab Polysomnogram for further evaluation.
