Home sleep apnea testing provides a board certified sleep medicine physician, Dr. Klaus Lessnau with the information he needs to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea. It allows you to sleep at home wearing equipment that collects information about how you breathe during sleep. You will usually set up the testing equipment yourself.
There are a variety of home sleep apnea testing devices that have different sensors and equipment. These devices measure your breathing and blood oxygen level. Some also may measure your heart rate or other information about your body.
Once test is completed and interpreted by Dr. K. Lessnau, you will have consultation where further treatment plan will be created.
