Sleep Study

When do you need to have Sleep Study?

 

When snoring happens or breathing stops during your sleep, it may be an indication of Sleep Apnea.

Major symptoms include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Loss of concentration
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Forgetfulness
  • Morning headache
  • Loss of libido

If you have any of the above symptoms, seek for the doctor’s advice soon and arrange a sleep test for a detailed check-up.

Many clinical studies have confirmed that untreated sleep apnea may lead to many health problems such as:

  • Cardiovascular diseases like stroke, hypertension and heart disease
  • Arrhythmia
  • Diabetes
  • Deteriorated memory
  • Glaucoma
  • GERD

Therefore, if you suspect yourself having sleep apnea, you should consult the doctor and receive treatment immediately.

 

Homecare Medical’s Test Procedure

 

  1. Be ready in the hospital or at home before 20:00.
  2. The technician will arrive at 20:00 – 21:00 to start the test. Electrode placement takes around 1 hour.
  3. The electrodes will collect various parameters, which include EEG, EOG, EMG, respiratory activity, snoring, ECG, chest/abdomen activities, body position and oximetry etc.
  4. The electrodes will not cause any harm to your body.
  5. Since sensors are placed on different parts of your body, you may feel a bit unnatural at the beginning, so try to relax and fall asleep peacefully will be good enough.
  6. If you have to go to the washroom during the test, notify the technician beforehand. DO NOT attempt to take any sensors off your body as it will affect the sleep study result.
  7. Test report will be sent to your doctor in 1-3 working days. Please contact your doctor for an appointment to get the sleep report result.
