Finding the right treatment
for each sleep disorder

Interrupted Sleep

If you snore and find yourself tired during the day, you are likely waking for a few seconds hundreds of times every night due to sleep apnoea without knowing. Everyone has some level of interrupted sleep and it is completely normal to wake up 5 times per hour without realising. If you wake more than 15 times per hour, it is likely this is affecting your daytime performance and/or long-term health.

Sleep Report

Following a home based sleep study, we generate a sleep report that shows sleep patterns, sleep disturbances, breathing obstructions, movement, and oxygen levels throughout the night. A qualified sleep physician reviews the data to diagnose any sleep disorder and gives their clinical recommendations.

Treatment

We can arrange or recommend different treatment options based on the results of an at home sleep study. You may choose to wait until the reporting specialist sleep and respiratory physician has seen your study and given their recommended treatment before you proceed. In other cases, the solution is clear and you may wish to start treatment as soon as the day after your home based sleep study.

Healthy Active Life

A home sleep test can identify sleep apnoea or other sleep disorders, which are associated with various health problems and affect performance and mood during the day. Identifying and treating the underlying problem helps restore energy and vitality.

We Are The Best Support For You

The most important result is a measure of your sleep disturbance. The cause of most sleep disturbances is identified by measuring breathing, leg, and jaw movements.

Sleep disturbance is reported as the Arousal Index, which is the number of times you wake up per hour of sleep. Most of these awakenings are too short to remember (only 3 to 10 seconds in duration – you usually only remember being awake if it lasts more than 5 minutes) and it is normal to wake up to 5 times per hour. Waking 5 to 15 times is considered mild disruption while waking more than 15 times per hour definitely indicates a sleeping problem that requires urgent intervening treatment.

Sleep Questionnaire

Our sleep questionnaire helps you determine if you possibly suffer from a sleep disorder and might benefit from a home sleep study, also determining if you will qualify for Medicare coverage for a home sleep apnea test. There are four sections of the questionnaire:

  • The Epworth Sleepiness Scale, developed in 1991 by Dr Murray Johns here in Melbourne, gives a subjective assessment of daytime tiredness.
  • STOPBANG and OSA50 are industry-standard questionnaires for screening for obstructive sleep apnoea.
  • Other reasons for a sleep study, such as signs of teeth grinding, depression, waking with a headache or urinating at night can also be indicated.

Sleep Apnoea Test at Home Australia

Sleep apnoea is a common chronic sleep disorder that affects 50% of men and 23% of women, according to the largest to-date sleep apnoea prevalence study (HypnoLaus Sleep Cohort study) in 2015. Sleep apnoea is caused by repeated upper-airway collapse during sleep which results in fragmented sleep, reductions in blood oxygen levels and a multitude of potential health issues. Diabetes, high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, atrial fibrillation, dementia, car accidents and depression can all result from untreated sleep apnoea. Age and a high BMI are both risk factors, but sleep apnoea can affect any demographic, even young, thin people, including children.

A home sleep study is the fastest and easiest way to determine accurately if you are suffering from sleep apnoea.
