Home Sleep Testing (HST)
ASN Inc. is pleased to announce that our following hospital partners are offering Home Sleep Testing (HST) for diagnosing Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA):
While home sleep testing does not measure all of the vital signs that are monitored with an in lab study, we wanted to meet the needs of patients, and insurance companies requesting home sleep testing. A comprehensive sleep evaluation with a sleep specialist should be conducted before a home sleep test.
We offer a Type III unattended home sleep study that monitors: heart rate, blood oxygen level, snoring, body position, body movement, breathing airflow, and effort. Not all patients are eligible for a home sleep study as this test is only used to diagnosis Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). If any other sleep disorders such as Restless Leg or Narcolepsy exist or any co-morbidities such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) or Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), a home sleep study will not be found to be clinically effective.
