Sleep apnea disrupts your sleep and affects your overall health, but it shouldn’t keep you from enjoying life’s simple pleasures. At Advanced Dental Sleep Treatment Center, we understand the importance of a good night’s sleep for your health and well-being. That’s why we offer a straightforward and comfortable solution: home sleep testing.

This convenient service allows you to undergo sleep apnea testing in the comfort of your own home, eliminating the need for overnight stays in unfamiliar sleep labs. Our dedicated team is committed to providing you with a seamless experience, from initial consultation to effective treatment, ensuring you’re on your way to better sleep and a healthier life.

Why Choose Home Sleep Testing?

A home sleep study offers numerous benefits tailored to meet the needs of those suspecting they might suffer from sleep apnea. Here’s why our home sleep testing service is the preferred choice for many in Omaha:

  • Comfort and Convenience: By conducting the sleep test in your bed, you can maintain your normal nighttime routine without intruding on unfamiliar surroundings. This comfort leads to more accurate results, as your sleep patterns remain undisturbed by the stress of being observed in a clinical setting.
  • Cost-Effective Solution: Compared to traditional sleep studies conducted in labs, our home sleep testing is a more affordable option. By eliminating the need for facility use and overnight monitoring by clinical staff, we pass the savings directly to you without compromising the quality of the diagnosis.
  • Accurate and Comprehensive Testing: Our home sleep tests are designed to capture a wide range of sleep data, including breathing patterns, oxygen levels, heart rhythm, and snoring intensity. This thorough analysis ensures that our sleep experts can accurately diagnose your condition and recommend the most effective treatment options. 

Simplicity and Ease of Use: We prioritize making the home sleep test process as straightforward as possible. From clear testing kit instructions inspired by our easy-to-follow PowerPoint guide, to the support provided by our team every step of the way, we ensure that your testing experience is hassle-free.

The Simple Process of Home Sleep Testing

Embarking on your journey to better sleep through home testing is straightforward and stress-free. Our process is designed to diagnose sleep apnea with minimal disruption to your daily life. Here’s how it works:

Initial Consultation and Information Gathering

Your journey begins with a simple conversation. We’ll collect basic information and guide you through completing a patient form online. For those who prefer a more personal touch, we offer the option to visit our office in Omaha, NE, at no extra charge. Here, you can complete the necessary forms and provide copies of your identification and insurance card in person.

Testing Your Sleep at Home

After we’ve gathered all the necessary information, you’ll receive a home sleep test kit directly to your door, complete with easy-to-follow instructions based on the PowerPoint presentation. Our testing kit is designed to ensure a smooth, hassle-free experience and can be used by individuals of all ages. With everything you need included in the kit, setting up for your two-night test will feel straightforward and unintimidating.

Receiving Your Results and Effective Treatment

Upon returning the test kit, a sleep physician will review your data and provide a formal diagnosis. We invite you to discuss your results and treatment options, focusing on non-invasive solutions like oral sleep appliances. Our team will also assist in checking your insurance coverage for the recommended treatment, guaranteeing a seamless and supportive experience from start to finish.

Step-by-Step Guide to Setting Up Your Home Sleep Test

Our straightforward guide makes preparing for your home sleep test easy and ensures that you’ll sleep comfortably while we monitor your sleep patterns.

  1. Prepare the Belt: Place the belt around your chest over a t-shirt or tank top. Secure it by clipping the belt together.
  2. Attach the Wire: Take the loose wire and plug it into the slot on the belt. We recommend threading the wire through your shirt collar and down an arm to avoid tangling during sleep.
  3. Fit the Finger Probe: Place the finger probe over the ring finger of your non-dominant hand, ensuring the raised bump is over your nail. Remove any rings and nail polish beforehand. Secure the probe with the tape provided in your kit.
  4. Secure the Wires: Use tape to secure the wire around your wrist or arm. This prevents it from moving during the night.
  5. Insert the Nasal Cannula: If not already attached, screw in the nasal cannula, ensuring it’s securely fastened. The rubber prongs should curve towards your nose and be placed inside your nostrils. Loop the cannula around both ears and adjust the rubber stop up to your chin to keep it in place. For added security, place a small piece of tape on your cheeks.
  6. Ready for Bed: With everything in place, you can rest. The test will start automatically at your scheduled time, allowing you to sleep as you normally would while we gather all the necessary data.

By following these simple steps, you’ll contribute to a comprehensive evaluation of your sleep health, all from the comfort of your home. This seamless process ensures that your path to better sleep is as smooth and efficient as possible.
