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
Part 2-GREAT VALUE, EASY
by Kane (US) -
I did the study that night, sent it back with their return label, and 2 days later I had a script, as my AHI and study results were off the charts. $250. I researched machines, got to choose the one I wanted - Phillips DreamStation, DreamWear mask, heated tube, humidifier. $825 with a coupon code they provided, shipped free, no tax. I could not find better pricing anywhere - and I look. (I LOVE IT. My AHI went from 60+ to under four every night.) SO - $1,100 all in. And, I own the machine. This whole process was SO painless. The money saved, even had insurance covered it, is still thousands. Do not let the cheesiness of the '1800CPAP' name marginalize the legitimacy of their products and services.
Part 1-GREAT VALUE, EASY
by Kane -
Like most, my insurance sucks. Had I gone through Aetna, even having met my annual deductibles, it still would have cost thousands because of the insurance terms. It is not like you get a script and they say, 'great, we'll pay 70%'. In my case, you need a referral from a general physician, a sleep physician consultation, a sleep study - with very specific requirements for insurance to recognize, then a post sleep study consultation, and finally - inevitably, a CPAP Machine. THEIR choice of CPAP machines. Only they pay 70%, (assuming you met your deductible, otherwise zero) toward monthly lease/rental payments from a in-network device provider. AND - it is required to perform another sleep study every 6 months. So you are stuck forever dealing with health insurance claims. Again - this is my scenario, my crappy insurance. Contrast this to 1800CPAP. I ordered a sleep study kit. It arrived a day later via FedEx
