What is a Home Sleep Study?

A home sleep study is a good option for patients for many reasons: it’s less expensive and typically covered by most insurance companies, and nearly 85% of the time patients qualify for auto-pap.

While this is a convenient at-home solution for some, not every patient is eligible for a home sleep study. Patients with the following conditions are NOT candidates for a home sleep study:

  • Congestive heart failure
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Obesity >60 BMI
  • Moderate to severe pulmonary disease
  • Pediatrics <18
  • Central sleep apnea
  • Periodic limb movement disorder
  • Insomnia
  • Parasomnias
  • Circadian rhythm disorders
  • Narcolepsy
  • General screening of asymptomatic populations
