What Is an At-Home Sleep Test?
At-home sleep testing is very popular with many patients because it allows them to perform the test in the comfort of their own homes. The tests record sleep patterns and accumulate important data needed by primary care doctors to diagnose sleep disorders. To learn more about at-home testing, contact our team of physicians today.
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
Here in the Southington office, we see many patients, most of which choose at-home sleep testing to determine if they suffer from a specific sleep disorder. The at-home tests monitor sleep patterns and record accumulated results, but they do not monitor how long you are asleep and whether you are a light or a heavy sleeper. All recorded findings assist the physician team here in Southington in determining whether you suffer from a sleep disorder or not.
At-Home Sleep Tests
Sleep Apnea Testing
Sleep apnea at-home tests are very popular and effective. They monitor individuals while sleeping and keep an accurate record of sleep patterns. The tests focus on how many times you stop breathing while sleeping. These results help our doctors to identify specific sleep disorders, including that of obstructive sleep apnea.
Here at our Southington clinic our primary care physicians provide patients with insight and direction on the use of at-home tests, including instructions on how to properly attach the sleep sensors.
Measuring Your Results
During the night, the tests monitor all our sleeping patterns and records all results. Once the testing is completed the information gathered helps doctors to determine if you suffer from any sleep disorders. Your doctor will schedule a follow up appointment with you to go over all their findings.
If the test reveals indicators of OSA, your doctor will refer you to a sleep specialist for further treatment. If OSA is not a finding, your doctor may either perform additional testing or refer you to one of our sleep specialists.
Sleep Disorder Treatment
If it appears you suffer from OSA or any other type of sleep disorder, your doctor will refer you immediately to one of our sleep specialists located at our Norwalk or Orange locations. The specialist will follow up with a full assessment of your symptoms and sleep patterns and thereafter design a personalized treatment plan for you.
