In the past, to be tested for sleep apnea, you would have needed to sign up for a sleep study. The wait list for this type of testing could be long, and even with insurance, it could be expensive to undergo a sleep study just to check for sleep apnea.
Instead of taking up a lot of your resources, you can opt to bring your sleep apnea testing into your home with the help of ApneaMed, thanks to the latest technological improvements.
Test Yourself For Sleep Apnea At Home
That’s right, there is no need to have a sleep study if all you need to be tested for is sleep apnea. With the ApneaMed Home Sleep Test, you can easily bring our sleep apnea testing unit to your home.
How our obstructive sleep apnea home test works is that you will start by ordering the home test kit. Once the kit arrives, you will need to read through the instructions so that when you are ready to go to sleep, you will be able to configure the home sleep test correctly on yourself. With the test unit components on while you sleep, our device will record various data points such as your:
- Blood oxygen saturation levels
- Breathing patterns
- Respiratory effort
- Heart rhythm
- Body position
All this information will be recorded by our home sleep test unit, which you will mail back to ApneaMed. Your sleep apnea test information will be analyzed by one of our board-certified sleep physicians, and you will be contacted with the results of your test.
Benefits Of Choosing A Home Sleep Test
One of the obvious benefits of this improved sleep apnea testing is that it is a fast process. Rather than wait for weeks or even months for a sleep study, you can have a rapid turn around once you order and take our home sleep test.
You also don’t need to be hooked up to a bunch of wires and machines to have your sleep apnea tested for. Instead, all you will have is our test unit secured around your chest, a heart rate monitor on your finger, and a nasal cannula on to track your breathing. Other benefits of our home sleep test are:
- Having a home sleep test is much more affordable than a sleep test, especially if you don’t have insurance.
- It is an approved method of sleep apnea testing that you can use if you need to remain compliant with your company rules or the Department of Transportation.
You also receive a $100 off coupon code for one of our AutoPAP machines when you order one of our home sleep tests. The AutoPAP is an excellent way to manage your sleep apnea if you do have the sleep disorder.If you would like to know about our Home Sleep Tests and see if one is right for you, feel free to contact us.
