HOME SLEEP STUDY

Alternative to traditional sleep studies

HOME SLEEP STUDY

Home Sleep Studies

Home sleep studies (HST) are an alternative to an NPSG in a sleep center. More and more insurance companies require an HST before any sleep study can be done in a sleep center. However, some patients will not fit the criteria for an HST. Advanced Sleep Centers can assist you with determining what is best for you.

Home Sleep Study Pros:

  • You get to be in your own home and sleep in your own bed.

  • They are a good diagnostic tool for generally healthy people with uncomplicated Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

Home Sleep Study Cons:

  • A technician will not be available overnight to ensure that the sensors are in place all night, and this may result in a repeat of the study.

  • HSTs are limited to sleep disordered breathing and are not appropriate for patients with other conditions such as, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) and others that may necessitate more advanced monitoring.
