The Sleep Test unit is a revolutionary sleep test that is used in 1000’s of homes in the USA every single night. It is the most up to date, state of the art test available in Australia. It is designed to collect nocturnal physiological data in the comfort of your own home. This means that you can sleep in your own bed, wearing the device on forehead for one night while it is hard at work tracking your sleeping and snoring.
It assesses lots of data including if you are snoring, how loudly, whether you are sleeping on your back or side, how much oxygen you are getting and very importantly, whether you are experiencing any apnoeas (where you stop breathing) during your sleep.
This is then read and assessed by two Sleep Physicians independently and the diagnoses and follow up treatment options will be discussed at your bulk billed consultation with one of our Sleep Physicians.
When coupled with clinical history the Sleep Test can determine the presence and severity of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). This is a serious condition causing a sleep person to repeatedly stop breathing due to partial or complete blockages of the upper airway. Once you complete your home sleep test, two board certified sleep physicians analyse the data and present all findings to you in your follow up bulk billed consultation when recommended therapy can be discussed. From here, if necessary, we will create a tailored treatment plan based on your personal needs and expectations.
