At Home Sleep Apnea Test Device Kit
At Home Testing Service For Sleep Apnea
Please Note: Purchase of this product is only for the Home Sleep Testing Service, not the actual device itself.
Do you suspect you have sleep apnea but you don't want to spend a few nights away from your home with strangers to get your diagnosis? You don't have to do that anymore! There has been several technological advances in home diagnostic equipment for diagnosing sleep apnea over the past several years.
The sleep industry has recognized that more people would be tested and diagnosed if they were in the comfort of their own homes. This thought process has led to innovative and effective home sleep testing devices. The option of home sleep testing for sleep apnea has been proven in many ways to be just as effective as a free-standing sleep center for a diagnostic test of sleep apnea for a majority of the undiagnosed population seeking better sleep health.
With the 1800CPAP.COM home sleep apnea tests, you will get Registered Polysomnography Sleep Technicians manually scoring your sleep studies and a Board Certified Sleep Physician interpreting your test and giving sleep medicine recommendations and diagnosis if applicable.
This device is intended for the testing of suspected sleep apnea in adults (18 and over) that DO NOT have co-morbid conditions. If you suffer from health conditions like heart failure, COPD, or neuromuscular disorders, this is not an option for you, and it is recommended that you consult a sleep physician about testing done in a lab setting of a sleep disorder center. If you are not sure if you would be a good candidate give us a call at 1-800-274-1366

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Sleep Disorder Breathing
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is recognized as a serious health problem that impacts approximately 43 million US adults. It is estimated that more than 80% of the US population remain undiagnosed.
For some, home sleep tests may be a cost-effective alternative to a lap sleep study to diagnose sleep apnea and sleep disorders. For others, including those with moderate to severe sleep apnea, a lab sleep experience may be required to rule out other medical conditions and determine the best treatment options, medicine, and therapy based on your breathing patterns and heart rate.

Ratings & Reviews
Malfunctioning blinking lights
by Heather Nelson -
I spent more time awake trouble shooting the blinking lights than sleeping. The light connected to the belt kept blinking and would reset for a few minutes then blink again. This study was a total waste and non diagnostic in my opinion. Will not use this setup again.
BIG REASON FOR CHOOSING 1800CPAP
by Dale (WV) -
This service is perfect if you (A) have never been tested before and want to know if you have sleep apnea, or (B) like me, you've been diagnosed before but need to refresh your prescription to purchase a replacement machine and/or for insurance (mine requires a sleep study every 10 years). It does not replace a full-blown sleep study done in a medical facility, where they are better able to diagnose more complex sleep abnormalities or perform a pressure titration for recommended pressure settings. If that were the case, the pulmonologist at 1800CPAP would recognize this and refer you for follow-up, which is good. My insurance even paid for this in-home test :) I highly recommend 1800CPAP for providing this service, and for there ability to ship internationally (I travel overseas frequently, and for long assignments). Did my homework before choosing them, highly recommended, especially for business travelers.
