    Home Sleep Testing

    What is a Home Sleep Test?

    A home sleep test is a modified sleep study that is self-administered in the comfort and privacy of your own home. It is used to help detect obstructive sleep apnea in select adults and involves the use of a portable monitoring system equipped with a small recording device, sensors and belts.

    Home Testing equipment

    You will be instructed by our home sleep test coordinator on how to wear the monitor and attach the belts and sensors.

    Home Sleep Tests vs. Overnight Sleep Center Sleep Testing

    The most conclusive for the diagnosis of sleep disorders is still an overnight sleep study, attended by a sleep technician, at the L+M Sleep Center located at the Hilton Garden Inn, Groton. However, in the appropriate screened patient, a Home Sleep Test is a validated, cost-effective testing option (preferred by many insurers to assess for moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea.

    If the home sleep test turns out to be inconclusive, or another disorder is suspected, an overnight sleep study in the sleep center may still be needed.

    How can I get a Home Sleep Test?

    Home sleep tests are only recommended for adults 18 years and older who have a high pretest probability of moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea, and who have no serious contraindicated medical conditions. If you have concerns about your sleep, and you would like to know if you are eligible for a home sleep test, please schedule an appointment with our sleep specialists for a complete sleep evaluation, call 860.444.3366. Our providers will determine if a home sleep test is appropriate for you.
