Do A Sleep Study At HomeYou can now do a sleep study at home.
Home sleep studies, otherwises known as 'portable diagnostic sleep studies', 'portable polysomnograms' or 'in home sleep studies' are now an accepted diagnostic tool for medical professionals.
Until recently, sleep studies were performed primarily in an 'attended' setting, typically in a hospital based sleep unit, where trained sleep scientists observed the patient throughout the night. More recently, the introduction of state-of-the-art portable diagnostic technology has meant sleep studies at home are now a completely viable alternative in many cases.
Obviously, doing a sleep study at home means you get to sleep in the comfort and privacy of your own bedroom. Apart from being less daunting and less expensive, a sleep study at home also provides a more typical sleeping environment for the sleep study to be conducted in.
High quality recorders monitor brainwave activity, cardiac activity, blood oxygen levels, breathing patterns and stoppages, limb movements, sleeping position and much more. The recorded data is then downloaded and provided to specialist, independent sleep physicians who diagnose the condition and prescribe an appropriate form of treatment.
