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

  • 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.
  • 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…).
  • 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.

 

Home Sleep Testing offers an 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 Man doing a sleep test at home.their 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.
