The Braebon Home Sleep Test is a unique technology that helps assess, treat, monitor, and experience the sleep performance of patients suffering from OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) at home. Equipped with the industry's unique technology, home sleep tests have become more comfortable than never before.
What does a home sleep study test do?
A home sleep study is capable of recording every element of a sleep test that a sleep clinic study would. As the patient is asleep, the equipment would collect data about how the patient breathes during sleep. Home sleep testing equipment monitors blood oxygen level, heart rate and other information of the body. Our expert doctor would train patients the method of attaching the sensors to the body. At bedtime, the patient would plug the sensors into a small computer and turn it on. In the morning, the patient would have to remove the sensors and return the equipment to the clinic so the results can be studied.
When are the conditions to keep in mind while you are suggested for a home sleep study test?
A home sleep study is recommended when the patient has been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The approved test isn't suggested if the patient has been diagnosed with medical conditions such as pulmonary diseases, neuromuscular diseases or congestive heart failure. The doctor would take precautions and conduct necessary tests to estimate the patient's eligibility and level of comfort.
What are the tips that the patient can follow during their home sleep study test?
You'll be given instructions for how to set up the sensors and the computer. Doing so will be simple. For best results:
- Go through the instructions during the day so you'll be ready to use the equipment at bedtime.
- Stick to your normal routine. Ask your healthcare provider if you should do anything differently the night of the study.
- If you get up during the night, reconnect the sensors to the computer or yourself correctly.
- Get as many hours of sleep as you can.
