Patients - Home Sleep Testing
Benefits of Home Sleep Testing:
Convenient and Easy
Home sleep testing allows the patient to be tested in the comfort of their own home. No more driving to the sleep lab and spending the night in an unfamiliar environment while being watched by a technician. Home sleep testing also provides better test results since the patient is more likely to have a normal night's sleep at home instead of at a sleep lab.
Since home sleep testing is performed at the patient's home the test is considerably cheaper than going to a sleep lab for a polysomnography (PSG) test. Patients find that the cost for the entire test is less than their copay for a PSG test at an overnight sleep lab facility.
