Is it possible to have a formal, conclusive home sleeping test for sleep apnea? Yes! At Metro Detroit Sleep Solutions in Clinton Township, MI, Dr. Kachorek uses home sleep studies to provide our patients with comprehensive sleep analysis without having to visit an off-site sleep lab. Your take-home kit will provide the same data needed by a sleep specialist or pulmonologist to conclude which type of sleeping disorder you have and prescribe appropriate treatment (such as an oral sleep appliance)
If you’re exhibiting symptoms of a sleeping disorder and haven’t had a sleep study in the past, we order a take home test for you to perform on your own. The machine includes a small sensor that you strap onto your chest. It also comes with a pulse oximeter that you attach to your finger, which plugs into the sensor.
While you sleep, the at-home machine will analyze your breathing and record data such as sleep disturbances or respiratory distress.
All it takes is one overnight session to record the data that we need. Then, bring the equipment back to our office to have the information read and analyzed. If our sleep expert finds that you show symptoms of clinical sleep apnea, we can move forward with planning the best method of treatment.
One of the biggest reasons why people come to our Clinton Township, Michigan office is because of the option to have an at home sleep test. Instead of staying overnight in a strange place for the same study, you can receive a professional screening in a familiar environment.
