While home sleep studies are not appropriate for all patients, it is a convenient at-home solution for some.

Benefits of Choosing the West Lakes Sleep Center's Ankeny Services

We have tried to streamline the process and make it as simple and easiest as possible for the patient from beginning to end.

  • The patient will be scheduled in Ankeny for evaluation to verify he/she is an appropriate candidate for a home sleep study.
  • The patient can leave their appointment with the home sleep testing device, and return it to the Ankeny office the following day.
  • If the patient qualifies for auto-pap they will be set up with their equipment in Ankeny. *If the patient does not qualify, a polysomnogram may be needed to appropriately diagnose and treat the sleep disorder. This would take place at the West Lakes Sleep Center in West Des Moines.
  • Patients of the West Lakes Sleep Center have a CPAP compliance rate of 88%, almost 20% higher than the national average. Compliance is defined as: CPAP being used 4 or more hours per night 70% of the time.

A home sleep study is a good option for patients for many reasons: it's less expensive and typically covered by most insurance companies; nearly 85% of the time patients qualify for auto-pap, meaning they do not have to undergo a polysomnogram in the sleep lab, resulting in more convenient and cost-efficient care.

Not every patient is eligible, or appropriate, for a home sleep study.

  • Congestive heart failure
