Home Sleep Study in Philadelphia
In order to diagnose sleep apnea, a patient must undergo a sleep study, also known as a polysomnography (PSG). Traditionally, sleep apnea tests were done in a sleep lab, but, with today’s technological advancements, an at-home sleep study is able to produce the same test results.
At-home sleep testing is a convenient alternative to traditional overnight polysomnograms. The advantage of home testing is that it allows you to sleep in the comfort of your own bed without technicians observing while a small device that’s worn like a headband collects data as you sleep. The information collected is sufficient to identify an obstructive sleep apnea condition and its severity.
