Testing for Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Although millions of people experience the symptoms of sleep apnea, many of them don’t realize it because they mistake their condition for excessive snoring. However, eventually, those symptoms can have such an effect on your life that they force you to find out what’s wrong. Traditionally, diagnosing sleep apnea required an overnight stay at a specially outfitted sleep laboratory. Now, however, Dr. Newton can utilize an in-office Rhino-meter and Pharyngo-meter to evaluate your airway, and recommend an at-home study so you can diagnose your sleep apnea from the comfort of your own bed.
How At-Home Sleep Testing Works
After a comprehensive airway screening to determine if you may be at risk for sleep apnea, Dr. Newton can submit your results to the sleep experts at SleepTest.com. There, they will process your results and your insurance benefits, then schedule the test’s delivery straight to your home. Your custom package will included detailed instructions for administrating the test at home, then sending the test’s results back so that Dr. Newton can custom-design your sleep appliance.
