Testing Sleep Apnea From the Comfort of Your Own Home
If you are wondering whether your snoring warrants sleep apnea treatment, you can take a sleep apnea home test to determine whether you have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and if so, to what degree. Depending upon the symptoms you are exhibiting and your risk factors, Dr. Henry Ernst may recommend the ARES sleep apnea home test.
What is the ARES Sleep Apnea Home Test?
The ARES is a comfortable wireless recorder that you wear on your forehead overnight or for several nights. ARES identifies physiological changes that indicate the presence of sleep apnea, such as:
- Blood oxygen saturation
- Pulse rate
- Head movement
- Position of the head
- Snoring levels
The sleep apnea home test will also help Dr. Ernst discover the severity of your condition, ranging from minimal to severe, so that he can more accurately determine the most effective sleep apnea treatment for you.
