What is the waiting time to have a sleep study test?
Usually 1 to 2 weeks but within days if urgent. Results are available the next day. Treatment with CPAP is available immediately for obvious cases of obstructive sleep apnoea, especially with significant symptoms such as falling asleep driving.
Can it be done in my home?
We come to your home in the evening, any night of the week between 8 and 10pm. Takes 30mins to put the mobile-phone size sleep monitor over your t-shirt and go through a quality check to make sure everything is working. We just need access to a kitchen benchtop – no need to go into your bedroom.
Does it include audio-video?
YES (optional only by special request).
A special IR night-vision camera is available for sleep-walking or suspected REM Movement Behaviour Disorder, which can cause someone to act out their dreams and be violent to their partner. However, we usually focus on diagnosing and treating obstructive sleep apnoea first which can be a trigger to these episodes.
