At Home Sleep Tests

Better Insight For Better Sleep

At-Home Sleep Testing in Sherman Oaks with Dr. Eddie Siman

Sleep apnea is an overwhelmingly common and often undiagnosed condition that causes breathing interruptions throughout the night. It can cause sleep disruptions, snoring, headaches, daytime drowsiness, and difficulty focusing. If left untreated, it can lead to serious health issues and, in some cases, even death. It is estimated that as much as 82% of men and 93% of women who have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) go undiagnosed. Dr. Eddie Siman, TMJ and Sleep Apnea Expert, offers our patients in Beverly Hills & Sherman Oaks at-home sleep tests, to help ensure that patients struggling with the effects of sleep apnea have the best opportunity for diagnosis and treatment.

Convenient And Cost-Effective Sleep Analysis

What is At-Home Sleep Testing?

Sleep apnea is categorized as obstructive or central. Obstructive sleep apnea refers to physical factors that inhibit airflow during sleep, while central sleep apnea describes pauses in breathing caused by the brain failing to continuously stimulate breathing throughout the night. Both types decrease oxygen levels, causing a variety of complications and symptoms.

There are two types of sleep studies that can be used to diagnose sleep apnea, including an overnight sleep study and an at-home sleep study. While an overnight sleep study in a hospital or lab offers an in-depth look at all aspects of your sleep, including your brain waves, it is expensive and not necessarily the most practical option for patients with suspected sleep apnea. An at-home sleep study allows you to wear a small device on your finger that monitors breathing and sleep quality while you sleep to help diagnose sleep apnea. At-home sleep tests provide patients with a more convenient, comfortable, and practical means of gaining insight into their sleep disturbances. Ultimately, at-home sleep studies facilitate more practical and effective sleep therapy for patients with sleep apnea.

The First Step Toward Better Sleep

What are the benefits of At-Home Sleep Testing?

At-home sleep testing is more convenient and less expensive than overnight sleep studies designed to diagnose conditions like narcolepsy. You won't have to worry about staying away from home overnight, but instead will be free to undergo testing comfortably in your own bed with a small, comfortable device.

It Works While You Sleep

What Happens During At-Home Sleep Testing?

During your consultation to determine if you'd make a good candidate for at-home sleep testing Sherman Oaks & Beverly Hills TMJ and sleep apnea specialist, Dr. Eddie Siman, will listen thoroughly to your concerns and assess your symptoms and medical history. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about testing or treatment, if necessary.

Provided you are a candidate, Dr. Siman will provide you with a device you will wear on your finger for two nights. The device will monitor and record your breathing and sleep patterns throughout each night.

You will need to avoid caffeine and alcohol to prevent impacting your results. To get the most accurate assessment, you should stick to your regular sleep routine as closely as possible during testing. After your test, you will return your device to Dr. Siman for results assessment. He will go over your results with you and, if applicable, discuss your treatment for sleep apnea.

Understanding Your Sleep Apnea

Realizing Restful Sleep

Siman’s C-PAP-Free Solution to Sleep Apnea

The standard treatment for sleep apnea is a machine called a C-PAP. It is noisy and involves the use of an uncomfortable mask to ensure that breathing continues throughout the night. While it effectively treats sleep apnea, it can disrupt patients’ sleep for other reasons. However, Sherman Oaks sleep apnea specialist, Dr. Siman, has a better solution that involves no loud machinery or bulky mask. Rather, he fits sleep apnea patients with a small customized device that prevents airway obstruction. It is so comfortable that patients can speak, eat, and drink while wearing it and truly delivers the conditions needed for sleep apnea patients to achieve a truly restful night's sleep.
