Conducting a sleep study used to be a major inconvenience, but with developments in technology, they are easier than ever and can be conducted in the comfort of your own home! Have you wondered if you might need to have a sleep study done on yourself or wondered if your CPAP pressure is where it should be?

You may believe only people of a certain age may need sleep studies, but you can benefit from a sleep study regardless of your age. With the ease of an at-home sleep study, you can quickly find out if you suffer from sleep abnormalities, including sleep apnea.

Over 30 million people have sleep apnea, but only about 20% will be diagnosed and receive proper care. We know it can be scary to think about signing up for a sleep study test. Knowledge is power and an at-home test gives you quick results for better sleep, sooner!

In as little as seven business days, you can find out if you are positive for sleep abnormalities, get a prescription, and get your nighttimes back on track. Our at-home sleep study system makes it affordable, convenient, and fast, to take better control of your sleep.

What Is CPAP Pressure?

CPAP pressure stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. The CPAP pressure regulates the air coming in and out of your airway system while you wear your CPAP device. The pressure from the mask pushes air through your mouth and nostrils. The pressure keeps your airways open for safe sleep. 

The average CPAP pressure is 10 cmH2O with normal ranges being between 6cmH2O and 14H2O. Over time, you may need to adjust CPAP pressure settings. It is suggested to check your pressure to ensure an appropriate level every one to two years.

At-Home Sleep Study System

Schedules are busier than ever and finding the time to schedule a sleep study might seem impossible, however, you can conduct a single night's study in the familiarity of your own home and bed.

Our at-home sleep study can be completed in seven, simple steps. Sleep apnea and other sleep disorders are not one-size-fits-all conditions and can become worse over time. It is easier to rule out the possibility of having one than waiting until the condition seriously impacts your quality of life or becomes life-threatening.

In some cases, if it is suspected you may have a more serious sleep disorder or OSA (obstructed sleep apnea), having a laboratory-conducted sleep study may be in order. Our test monitors your blood oxygen saturation, pulse, and how hard your heart is working. These measures can give you insight into what is happening in your body and if you need to seek additional care.

Sleep studies are recommended to be repeated every five years. Our bodies, lifestyles, stress, environments, and needs change throughout the years which affects our sleep. Having quick access to an at-home test can make you more apt to be consistent and up-to-date with sleep testing.
