In order to diagnose Sleep Apnea or other sleep disorders, a patient must undergo a polysomnography (sleep study). This is typically done in a sleep lab, requiring the patient to spend one or two nights in the lab, while the polysomnography (PSG) equipment records his/her physiological data. However, today with technological advancements a polysomnography can be performed at home and is called home sleep testing (HST) or a home sleep study.
SleepView is the smallest and lightest home sleep testing monitor meeting AASM recommended guidelines. The 8-channel SleepView is ergonomically designed for patients to perform an easy home sleep test.
SleepView is pre-programmed to turn ON and OFF at your regular sleep time. If you choose to go to bed earlier, then press the ON button located on the front of SleepView. The power light should turn green.
Once we receive your order for the sleep study then one of our team members will be calling you at the phone number provided at checkout within 24/48 hours. At that time, they will be confirming your shipping address and whether or not you will be able to perform the study when the sleep device arrives. They will review with you the steps of setting up the device and discuss what you need to do once the sleep study has been completed. The package you receive will have a return label within it which you will use to return the device at no additional charge to you. Once the device is received back to us, the data will be uploaded into our system and scored and interpreted. A report will then be generated with your sleep study results. This whole process can take about 7 days or so, depending on how quickly the sleep device is received back to us. The generated report will be emailed to you once the process is complete. Please be sure to use an email address at checkout that is most often checked by you for the results to be received.
If it is discovered that you have Sleep Apnea, then we will contact you to discuss the recommended options with you based on the interpreted sleep study results. If AutoPAP Therapy is recommended to you, then we can assist you with getting those devices at a significantly discounted price (a prescription may be required for the AutoPaP, please discuss with us for details). Every person’s individual results will vary and be determined solely by the interpreted sleep study results.
