Home Sleep Studies In BrisbaneHome sleep studies can now be performed in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Home sleep studies mean many patients can now have a diagnostic sleep study or 'poloysomnogram' without the hassle, delay, discomfort and expense normally associated with having a sleep study overnight in a sleep clinic environment.
Home sleep studies are primarily used to determine the nature and severity of a sleep disordered breathing condition, such as snoring or sleep apnoea (where the patient stops breathing while asleep). Now there is no reason to avoid having a sleep study.
If you suspect you might have a sleep disordered breathing condition (common symptoms are waking tiredness, daytime sleepiness, high blood pressure, slow metabolism / obesity, acid reflux, waking during the night, type 2 diabetes, loss of libido / impotence and other conditions) it is now easy, convenient and inexpensive to arrange a home sleep study to determine the exact nature of your sleep disorder.
One of our nurses will visit your home at a convient time to fit the home sleep study diagnostic equipment. You then simply go to bed at the normal time, after having a normal evening (including consuming your normal amount of alcohol and other food and medications). The next morning the home sleep study diagnostic equipment will be collected and the recorded data will be analysed by a specialist independent sleep physician. They will diagnose the nature and severity of your condition and prescribe an appropriate form of treatment.
We will then refer you to the relevent treatment provider, or offer to provide CPAP treatment by our own expert sleep therapists if that form of treatment is prescribed. Once again, this treatment can be provided in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
