If you suspect that the symptoms you or someone in your family are experiencing could be sleep apnea, please schedule your free consultation today.

How Does a Home Sleep Test (HST) Work

Sleep Treatment Direct provides advanced home-based sleep assessment kits to give you a clear picture of how you sleep. The test, as sophisticated as it is, comes in a user-friendly portable system that checks on the following key factors:


Respiratory patterns:

The device tracks how you breathe while you sleep. It looks for any stops, inconsistencies, or unusual patterns in your breathing that might suggest you have sleep apnea.

Blood oxygen levels:

It also measures the oxygen level in your blood. This reveals if there are moments when your blood oxygen drops, which is common during apnea episodes.

Heart rate:

Your heart rate is monitored all through the night. This data is important because any changes or irregularities in heart rate can also be linked to obstructive sleep apnea.

Sleep position:

The device notes your sleeping position and any changes in it throughout the night; certain positions can affect the quality of your sleep and might contribute to the symptoms.

All this data gives insight into your sleep health, which is critical for diagnosing sleep apnea accurately and planning effective treatment.

With that said, please note that sleep apnea is more than just a yes-or-no type of condition. Ordering a sleep test kit online and using it without supervision from a dentist or sleep specialist is not recommended. You need someone with the skills to identify different forms of sleep apnea.

This is also why we insist on meeting with you before prescribing a home-based test. By thoroughly examining your medical history, observing your symptoms, and conducting other diagnostic tests, our team at Sleep Treatment Direct can pinpoint the exact type of sleep apnea affecting you. It could be:

  • Central sleep apnea (CSA)
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
  • Complex sleep apnea syndrome (CompSA)
  • Combination sleep apnea
  • Positional sleep apnea

You need the right diagnosis to get a treatment plan that will address the root cause of your sleep apnea and alleviate it for good.

Early Testing and Detection of Sleep Apnea: Benefits of In-Home Testing

Detecting sleep apnea early through at-home testing brings many advantages:


Comfortable Testing Environment

Home-based sleep apnea tests allow you to undergo the screening in your usual sleeping environment. This can result in more accurate results since your sleep patterns are less likely to be disrupted in a clinical setting.

Timely Intervention

Early detection of sleep apnea is key. When caught early, you can immediately start treatments such as oral appliance therapy (OAT), laser, lifestyle changes, or surgery (in most severe cases) without further compromising your quality of life.

Cost-Effective Solution

Home-based tests are more affordable than in-lab sleep studies. By detecting sleep apnea early at home, you can avoid the higher costs associated with advanced stages of the condition, which may require more intensive treatments or management of related health issues.

Reduced Health Risks

Sleep apnea, if left undetected, can morph into more debilitating problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Thankfully, several studies have indicated that treating it in time can drastically cut down the risk of heart failure and help manage other symptoms as well. If your apnea co-existing with obesity or hypertension – as is the case for many patients – early detection can help you take a more holistic approach to health.

Improved Sleep Quality

With sleep apnea, you shift out of deep sleep into light sleep when your breathing pauses. By managing it, you spend more time in deep, restorative sleep. Think of it as getting a full charge on your phone versus just a 10% bump. You wake up feeling more refreshed and can maintain increased energy levels throughout the day.


Better Mental Well-being

Poor sleep does not just make you tired; it also affects your mental health. When you don’t sleep well, as often happens with sleep apnea, it compromises how your brain works. It doesn’t work as efficiently without proper rest and impacts your mood and stress levels. Catching and treating sleep apnea early helps ensure your brain gets the rest it needs.

Increased Productivity and Safety

Diagnosing your sleep apnea can be the difference between starting your day feeling sluggish versus full of energy. The drowsiness that comes with untreated apnea can make it hard to focus at work and raises the chance of accidents, like nodding off behind the wheel. Early detection and subsequent treatment can regulate your sleep and help you stay alert and sharp during the day.

Why Choose Our Sleep Treatment Direct For Home Testing

We have streamlined the process.

Around 39 million Americans are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea; most of them without even realizing it. Sleep Treatment Direct has made it easy to take the very first step in addressing the problem. With our home-based sleep apnea testing, there is no need to miss work, deal with co-pays at a doctor’s office, spend a night in a sleep lab, or wait for insurance to give the green light. Our goal is to make the path to testing easy so you can move towards better sleep.

Our tests are convenient and budget-friendly.

In-lab sleep tests can be quite a hassle, not to mention expensive.

Our at-home test is designed for single-person use, so it is more convenient and economical.

Compliance is easy with a one-on-one appointment with a dentist.

Strictly following the sleep apnea treatment can be challenging, especially without initial guidance from a professional. This is where we step in. Our team of dental providers offers personalized advice to ease you into the therapy. They help with everything, from guiding how to set up the test to decoding the results for effective treatment.
