Sleeping disorders are common and increasing every day in the United States. Many times sleep disorders are not recognized by the people who suffer from them. If left untreated, sleep disorders cause health-related problems including heart attacks, strokes and congestive heart failure. Early detection of sleep disorders can allow patients to sleep and regain restorative function, which could aide in daytime performance and decrease a patient’s risk for accidents and cardiovascular problems.

People who suffer from sleep disorders may have symptoms of the following…

    • Excessive daytime sleepiness.
    • Restlessness while sleeping at night.
    • Difficulty in falling asleep.
    • Problems with concentration & memory.
    • Increased urination during the night.
    • Inability to complete needed tasks at home.
    • Weight gain (inability to lose weight).
    • Loud snoring.

Our Home Sleep Apnea Testing Study

The home sleep apnea testing study (HSAT) is offered by the sleep center and adheres to the current best clinical practice guidelines in regards to the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in adults.  This test is performed in conjunction with a comprehensive sleep evaluation by our sleep medicine team, but allows you to receive a diagnostic assessment within the comfort of your own home, with less wires and physical hook up. Just schedule an appointment with the sleep medicine team to see if you are eligible. If eligible you will come to lab, pick up equipment, receive demonstration on how to use it correctly, and then be sent home to complete at night in your own bed.
