Sleep Studies Now Available Around Australia
‘In Home’ diagnostic sleep studies (polysomnograms) are now available all around Australia, including in small regional centres, representing a welcome change to the requirement and expense of an overnight stay in a hospital or sleep clinic unit.
Our in-home sleep studies are performed with state-of-the-art 10 channel portable diagnostic recorders (not mere screening devices) worn overnight while you sleep in the comfort, convenience, and privacy of your own home where a more typical night's sleep results are recorded. This ensures accurate diagnosis and treatment of your sleep disordered breathing condition, helping to improve your health quickly. Our home sleep studies accurately monitor:
- blood oxygen levels,
- breathing patterns,
- snoring and breathing stoppages,
- cardiac activity,
- brain activity,
- sleep position,
- limb movement and much more.
The recorded data is downloaded and sent to an independent specialist sleep physician who will analyse the data and report on the findings. Where appropriate, they will also prescribe an appropriate form of treatment -- typically oral appliance therapy for less serious conditions or continuous positive airway pressurisation (CPAP) for more serious conditions.
In either case, we can then provide the appropriate treatment, or an introduction to an expert specialist who can help.
For qualifying patients, the full cost of the diagnostic study is covered by Medicare. A small out of pocket expense applies, to cover the cost of delivery and collection of the diagnostic recorder, data download, refurbishment of equipment, etc. This out of pocket expense is significantly less than the cost of travelling to and/or staying in a hospital based sleep lab.
Sleep disordered breathing should be treated; not tolerated. Arrange your in-home sleep study today by calling 1300 246 637 to speak with a friendly Sleep Therapist, or fill in the form CONTACT US form and we'll get back to you ---->
