Testing for Sleep Apnea

Learn how our at home sleep test is performed in the comfort of your own home.

There are two main ways for Mainland Sleep to diagnose your sleep apnea.

  1. Pulse Oximeter – a small finger probe monitor that measures your heart rate.
  2. Apnea Link – is a device which reequires your effort to breathe, as well as a finger probe monitor, and nasal prongs.

To start your free test, you will require a referral from your physician.

Do I need to sleep over to do a sleep test?

No, you don’t need to sleep over. The testing device is to be used at home for just one night.

How much does a sleep test cost?

There is no cost for the testing, we offer this as a complimentary service for our referring physicians.

How long does it take to receive my sleep test results?

When you return your testing device we will try to have a Respiratory Therapist, Nurse or Sleep Lab Technician go over the results with you. If we aren’t immediately available, you will receive a phone call to discuss the results. Your doctor will receive a full report in about one week.

What does the sleep test results show?

The testing device will measure your breathing and oxygen levels. We will be able to see if your breathing stops at night and, if so, any associated drops in your oxygen levels and changes in your heart rate. The report will tell us everything we need to know to determine if you have sleep apnea.
