Home Sleep Tests
A home sleep test is a very accessible and cost effective way of diagnosing sleep problems, such as snoring or sleep apnea. It is important to recognise the symptoms and take this simple test to see if you're at risk. This will enable you to seek quality treatment for sleep disorders as early and as quickly as possible.
Overnight Oximetry Screening
Pulse oximetry (also called pulse ox) is a simple and painless test that measures the level oxygen is in the blood.
A respiratory pressure meter measures the maximum inspiratory and expiratory pressures that a patient can generate at either the mouth (MIP and MEP) or inspiratory pressure a patient can generate through their nose via a sniff manoeuvre (SNIP). These measurements require patient cooperation and are known as volitional tests of respiratory muscle strength.
