Home Sleep Studies
Patients with obstructive sleep apnea often do not know that they suffer from a sleeping disorder, and believe that their symptoms of daytime sleepiness, snoring and difficulty falling asleep are normal. It is important for these patients to seek care for their condition and undergo testing to receive a proper diagnosis of sleep apnea. While many practices perform sleep apnea testing through a sleep study performed in an unfamiliar facility, our doctors offer a much more convenient diagnostic option.
The ARES by Sleepmed sleep study is performed in the comfort of your home with the help of a monitoring device that can detect sleep related breathing disorders like sleep apnea. Any breathing disruptions during sleep are detected by the blood vessels throughout the body and can be detected through the noninvasive test. This easy-to-use test produces reliable results through automated data analysis that determines an accurate diagnosis and treatment assessment for sleep apnea.
Patients simply wear the ARES™ on the forehead and it stores up to three nights of nocturnal data. Comfortable and designed to be worn in all sleep positions, ARES™ was created to be worn at home, where it’s easier to gather an accurate profile of the patient’s breathing and sleep. Convenient audio and visual indicators let the patient know when ARES™ needs adjustment, increasing reliability of data capture. . There is no risk associated with this testing, and patients will benefit from a highly reliable and accurate diagnosis.
