Home Sleep Tests (HSTs) have burst onto the scene as an alternative to traditional sleep studies where the patient spends the night in a lab with a sleep tech conducting the study, but not everyone will fit the criteria for a HST. At the Alaska Sleep Clinic, our Sleep Specialists will look at your medical history, sleep habits and sleep issues to decide if a HST is best for you.
Sleep studies are the diagnostic tool used to identify sleep disorders. These are performed under the care of sleep professionals in one of two settings: in-lab or a home sleep test. There are pros and cons to each environment, but make no mistake. Completing an in-lab study is proven to be much more effective and controlled than a home sleep test.
