Sleep Studies BrisbaneSleep studies in Brisbane are now much more convenient, accessible and affordable.
In the past, diagnostic sleep studies in Brisbane meant making an appointment for an overnight stay in a sleep laboratory or hospital-based sleep study unit. These days, thanks to the introduction of world-class portable diagnostic sleep study recorders, the sleep study can now be done in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Not only does this mean a much more 'typical' night's sleep, in your own bed and environment, but also a much more convenient and less expensive result. Obviously, home based sleep studies do not incur any 'bed costs' as hospitals and sleep labs would charge, which means an immediate and significant
The entire cost of the sleep study is covered by Medicare, with only a small out-of-pocket expense to cover the cost of having a sleep therapy nurse deliver the diagnostic equipment, fit it on you (or show you exactly how to fit it yourself) and then collect it the next morning, refurbish the equipment, and have the sleep study report written by a specialist independent sleep physician.
Again unlike hospital-based sleep studies, these home based sleep studies can usually be performed very soon (ie., within a week, rather than a couple of months as is often the case with hospital studies).
Our in-home sleep studies use full 10 channel recorders, not mere screening devices, which mean the sleep physician can properly diagnose the exact nature of any condition and prescribe an appropriate form of treatment. The diagnostic recorders we use monitor and record brain activity, heart activity, breathing patterns and stoppages, limb movement, sleeping position, blood oxygen levels, and much more. These portable diagnostic recorders are the same as those used by hospitals and sleep labs when they have no beds available for an 'attended' sleep study.
