About Home Sleep Testing
Home sleep testing is a method of diagnosing sleep disorders. This method, as the name suggests, is performed at the user’s home, instead of in a lab. There are many different medical devices that can perform these analyses.
What Are the Benefits of Home Sleep Testing?
HST allows you to sleep at home wearing equipment that collects information about your respiratory status while you sleep. HST is appropriate for patients who have a high suspicion of obstructive sleep apnea and is not indicated for patients with insomnia, restless legs or other sleep disorders. As an alternative to in-lab testing, HST offers a less expensive, often more convenient method for diagnosing sleep disordered breathing.
Schedule an Appointment for Home Sleep Testing in Annapolis
If HST is ordered for you, the day prior to your night of testing, you will pick up and be given simple instructions by our sleep specialists on the proper use of the device and return it the next day after your night’s sleep. Your physician will then discuss the results and treatment options on your follow-up visit.
