Before relying solely on home sleep testing, here are a couple of things to keep in mind:

  1. Home sleep testing is intended specifically to evaluate patients without co-morbidities (i.e without neurologic, cardiac or significant pulmonary disorders) who are considered to be moderate to high risk for sleep apnea.

  2. Home sleep testing is not intended to evaluate patients who are considered to be low risk for obstructive sleep apnea or if another sleep-related complaint is being considered (i.e. excessive daytime sleepiness without snoring, frequent nocturnal awakenings, RLS/PLMS…).

  3. Alaska Sleep Clinic’s board-certified sleep specialists have significant experience in dealing with a full-range of sleep problems as well as being board-certified in neurology and family medicine and are always available for a consultation.

At Alaska Sleep Clinic we’ve been providing comprehensive sleep medicine to Alaskans for more than a decade. That’s why we’re proud to be able to offer you one of the newest innovations for diagnosing obstructive sleep apnea: Home Sleep Testing.

 

When you have been properly screened, Home Sleep Testing offers a great alternative to traditional clinic based testing.

Here’s why:

  • Many of our patients like the idea of being tested at home, while sleeping in the comfort of HST2.jpgtheir own beds.

  • Non-insured patients and insurance companies will like it because it costs as little as one-fourth the price of a traditional clinic based study.

  • Physicians like it because when they trust their patients to Alaska Sleep Clinic, they’ll receive the interpretation from a board-certified sleep specialist within 48-hours.

  • Plus, if you are found to have obstructive sleep apnea, we will provide recommended therapy. More importantly, if sleep apnea is not confirmed by the study, our sleep specialists will provide next-step guidance.
