In Home Sleep Studies Across Australia
Diagnostic sleep studies are a necessary prerequisite for the professional treatment of sleep disordered breathing conditions.
And now it's more convenient, more comfortable and less expensive than ever before.
Up until recently, sleep studies (or 'polysomnograms') could only be performed in a hospital-based setting, where a sleep scientist or technician would set up the recording equipment and monitor you during the night. Not surprisingly, many people found it difficult to experience a normal or comfortable night's sleep in this unnatural setting.
But our new, state-of-the-art portable diagnostic technology means you can now have a full diagnostic sleep study (not just a screening test), in the comfort and privacy of your own bedroom.
As part of our service, a specially trained sleep therapist will deliver the equipment to your home at a convenient time.
After showing you how to fit the recorder(or fitting it for you) and leaving you to sleep overnight with the recorder, it will be collected and the data downloaded. A specialist sleep physician will analyse the data (covering heart activity, brain activity, blood oxygen levels, breathing patterns and stoppages, sleeping positions, limb movements and much more) then diagnose your condition and prescribe an appropriate form of treatment.
The cost of the diagnostic sleep study is fully covered by Medicare. A small clinical administration fee applies, to cover delivery, setup, collection and refurbishment of the diagnostic recorder.
