What Is an At-Home Sleep Test?

At-home sleep testing is popular because it allows patients to perform the test right in their own homes. These at-home tests measure how many times a person stops breathing while sleeping and also records breathing and sleep patterns. If you are a sleep testing candidate, then reach out to our team for more details about at-home sleep tests.

Common Sleep Apnea symptoms include:

  • Waking up with a very sore or dry throat
  • Loud snoring
  • Occasionally waking up with a choking or gasping sensation
  • Sleepiness or lack of energy during the day
  • Sleepiness while driving
  • Morning headaches
  • Restless sleep

Many patients right here in North Haven, find that at-home sleep testing is both comfortable and effective. These tests, however, do not monitor how long a person sleeps or whether they are a heavy or light sleeper. The accumulated results and individual readings are used by our doctors to design a personalized treatment plan for the patient.

At-Home Sleep Tests

Sleep Apnea Testing

Sleep apnea at-home tests monitor individuals while they sleep and record all data accumulated. The test focuses on how often a person stops breathing while they are sleeping. The acquired results and patterns help identify specific sleep disorders, including that of obstructive sleep apnea.

Here at our North Haven clinic our highly skilled and experienced doctors provide insight on the proper use of at-home tests. Your primary care doctor will discuss the testing equipment and provide you with specific instructions on how to properly attach the sleep sensors.

Measuring Your Results

Once your sleep testing has been completed and all data recorded, your primary care physician here in North Haven will then analyze and assess all the results. They will then schedule a follow up appointment to go over all their findings.

If the study reveals indicators of OSA, you will then be referred to a sleep specialist for further treatment. If OSA is not a finding, your primary care doctor may want to perform additional tests to pinpoint the source of your irregular sleep patterns. At times, the primary doctor here in North Haven may deem it appropriate to refer you to a sleep specialist.

Sleep Disorder Treatment

If the results reveal signs of OSA or any other type of sleep disorder, you will be referred to one of our top-rated sleep specialists located at our Norwalk or Orange locations. They will follow up with a full assessment and analysis of your test results and design a personalized treatment plan that will meet with your specific symptoms and needs.
