At-Home Sleep Study
Convenient, Comfortable, and Accurate
At Our Family Health, we understand how important a good night’s sleep is for your overall health and well-being. If you’re having trouble sleeping or think you might have a sleep disorder, our medical providers in Monroe can determine if you’re a good candidate for a sleep study, and if an at-home sleep study is appropriate.
What is an at-home sleep study?
An at-home sleep study is a diagnostic test that measures your breathing and other physiologic functions while you sleep. It involves wearing a small device that records your sleep patterns, breathing, pulse and other cardiovascular information and records the information for analysis. A sleep specialist then evaluates all the information and gets a comprehensive report to Our Family Health’s medical team. An at-home sleep study is a convenient and non-invasive way to diagnose sleep disorders from the comfort of your bed.
The Benefits of an At-Home Sleep Study:
At-home sleep studies offer a range of benefits, including:
- Sleep in your bed and follow your regular bedtime routine
- No need to travel to a lab, take time off work, or arrange childcare
- Our equipment is state-of-the-art and delivers accurate results
- Often more cost-effective than in-lab studies and usually covered by insurance
- Affordable price for uninsured or high deductible plans
The at-home sleep study process
To conduct an at-home sleep study, we will provide you with a small device you will wear while you sleep. The device will measure your breathing, oxygen levels, and other physiologic functions. After the study, the medical team will analyze the data and provide you with a report that includes a diagnosis and recommended treatment options.
At-Home Sleep Studies Frequently Asked Questions
