Home Sleep Testing
Diagnostic Testing in the Modern World
When a patient is suspected of suffering from obstructive sleep apnea the only way to definitively diagnose them is through sleep testing. Traditionally, this was done in a lab. A patient would obtain an order from a doctor, and then book an appointment to spend the night monitored.
At Home Testing
While lab tests are able to provide practitioners with the most information, they are not always the best solution for some patients. That is why would like to offer an alternative solution. Home Sleep Testing with an Ares Watermark home sleep test is a fantastic option. The patient will take the unit home with them, sleep with it for one to two nights, and return it. From there a report is generated which will provide a diagnosis.
