A Sleep Test In Your Own Home

home-sleep-test

I get a lot of calls from people who think that they may have sleep apnea.

Their bed partner has witnessed them gasping for air at night, sometimes even filming them so that they can see it happening. It’s a terrifying sight for sure. The first step to treatment is a sleep study or a sleep test to make sure that you have sleep apnea and to also determine if it’s mild or severe.

For many people, it’s a daunting task to try and find a sleep center, make an appointment and spend the night in a foreign place and hooked up to a number of machines. Others simply don’t like the idea of someone watching them while they sleep. Thankfully, there is another option: a home sleep test. If you contact my office and you don’t have a sleep study, I can send you home with a home sleep testing device that you can use in the comfort of your own bed and more importantly without anyone watching you…except maybe the dog or the cat. It’s very simple and easy to use. After you use the device, you simply send it back to me or drop it by my office and I can have a sleep medicine physician read the results for you and get you a diagnosis.

If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call at (408) 910-8800. I’m here to help and answer any questions that you may have about the sleep testing process. And if you would like to read a firsthand account of someone using a home sleep test, I would highly recommend this great article from the New York Times: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/07/21/a-test-you-want-to-sleep-through/?_r=0

It’s time to get a good night’s sleep, don’t you think?
