Home sleep testing is a convenient, comfortable way to identify problems that affect your sleep quality. The test collects essential information about your sleep habits and cycles throughout the night without disturbing your sleep.
Sleep Cycle Center offers Itamar® WatchPAT® One home sleep testing systems that ship right to your door. These disposable tests sync to your smartphone or tablet and are easy to use.
You might need home sleep testing if you often feel tired during the day or if your family members complain about your frequent and loud snoring.
Loud snoring can be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). In this condition, your throat muscles relax too much during sleep. The relaxed muscles can partially or fully block your airway and cause you to stop breathing throughout the night or wake up gasping for breath.
Picture breathing through a straw, this robes the oxygen in your blood and increases your heart rate while you sleep.
Home sleep testing allows you to get information about your sleep habits while sleeping in your own home. This convenient alternative to in-lab sleep testing can be more comfortable for you because being in your own bed usually helps you feel more relaxed.
The test Sleep Cycle Center sends to you is easy to use. You attach the disposable testing device to your wrist and finger when you’re ready to sleep. The device syncs directly to your phone or tablet, recording information about your breathing patterns and oxygen levels throughout the night.
After your test is done, you don’t have to worry about returning the testing unit. Within 72 hours (three days) of your testing, Sleep Cycle Center’s board-certified sleep specialists interprets your results. Next, a follow up telemedicine visit will be scheduled to discuss what you should do next if you have OSA or other problems.
You can meet with your sleep specialist via the telemedicine platform to get your results and learn about any treatments you might need. The telemedicine platform means that you don’t have to travel to the office to get your home sleep testing results.
