HOME-BASED SLEEP STUDY
Our Home-Based Sleep Study service is available for those who suffer from a poor night’s sleep, on referral from your GP.
Sleep studies can help to assist in diagnosing a range of sleep disorders, including Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).
Obstructive Sleep Apnoea is the most common sleep disorder, which is caused by partial or complete obstruction of the throat. It is characterised by repetitive episodes of shallow or paused breathing during sleep, which occurs despite the effort to breathe. OSA is usually associated with a reduction in blood oxygen saturation.
Our Home-Based Sleep Study can be done at home in the comfort of your own bed. It’s a convenient and cost-effective way to test for any underlying sleep disorders that may be impacting on your ability to get a good night’s sleep.
We use Nox equipment which can be easily fitted at the practice in the evening and returned to us the next morning for evaluation.
The service is supported by Genesis Sleep and Respiratory Care. Your GP may refer you to one of Genesis’s sleep study specialists for specialist care, if any sleep disorders are detected during the study,
