Sleep Clinic Tasmania
Home Sleep Studies Now Available Anywhere In Tasmania
Now, it's more convenient, comfortable and less expensive than ever before for Tasmanians needing a diagnostic sleep study.
Up until recently, a professional diagnostic sleep study could only be performed in a sleep clinic or hospital-based 'attended' setting, where a sleep technician would setup the recording equipment and monitor you during the night.
Not surprisingly, most people find it difficult to experience a 'typical' night's sleep in these unusual sleep clinic environments due to foreign sounds, smells, noises, pillows, mattress, etc. This often results in compromised diagnostic results which leave you out-of-pocket and undiagnosed.
Sleep Clinic Services now provide professionally recognised, Medicare rebated, home sleep studies in any town across Tasmania. New portable diagnostic technology (worn while you sleep) allows you to undergo a professional 'unattended' polysomnogram in the comfort, privacy, and convenience of your own bedroom.
An in-home sleep study through Sleep Clinic Services is a full diagnostic study, not just a screening (which is not recognised by Sleep Physicians nor paid for by Medicare). The diagnostic technology records a wide range of sleep factors, including:
Your heart activity
Your brain Activity
Your blood oxygen levels
Your breathing patterns
The number of times you stop breathing
Your sleeping positions
Your limb movements, and much more ...
Regardless of where you live in Tasmania, you can now be accurately diagnosed while avoiding lengthy hospital waiting lists, travel time, and associated expenses such as preliminary consultations, petrol and parking expenses, and more.
As a patient of Sleep Clinic Services, you do not need to visit a hospital or sleep clinic to have the diagnostic sleep unit fitted. Instead, your sleep study unit will be delivered to you.
Your assigned Sleep Therapist will support and guide you through your entire sleep study process.
When you return the diagnostic unit to us (in the prepaid satchel we provide) the recorded data will be downloaded and sent to a team of independent sleep scientists and specialist sleep physicians for analysis. This analysis will identify the exact nature and severity of any sleep disordered breathing condition you might have - ensuring a proper prescription for an appropriate treatment can be made.
If required, some of these treatments can also be provided in the comfort, convenience and privacy of your home - at a time that suits you.
Don't put it off any longer. The negative consequences of sleep disordered breathing are serious, and the effects of treatment are extraordinarily positive.
