I was a little apprehensive about doing a sleep study at home, but the process was very easy and straightforward. I just had to wear the Watchpat sleep test on my wrist overnight and it did all the work. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who thinks they might have sleep apnea.

An Australian sleep apnea testing and diagnosis is required in order to obtain CPAP treatment or another form of sleep apnea therapy.

A sleep apnea test Australia can be initiated with or without a referral from your GP.  You can also choose where to take your test, either at home in your own bed or under the supervision of an overnight sleep clinic. Taking a test is the only way to confirm and diagnose sleep apnea.

Your sleep test report includes treatment recommendations or alternate next steps from the reporting sleep specialist. This report can be discussed with your GP or health professional.

Use your Sleep Test Report as an onward referral to access sleep apnea treatment options.

The past decade has seen a growing trend in the market favoring at-home sleep testing and the emergence of sophisticated testing equipment including The WatchPAT. These types of devices don't require a referral and can determine whether or not you have sleep apnea in a single night!

The Watchpat sits on your wrist just like a watch.

It's connected to a reader which sits over the index finger. This reader is able to measure up to 7 different aspects (PAT®️ signal, heart rate, oximetry, actigraphy, body position, snoring, and chest motion).

The raw data obtained is downloaded, and reviewed by a qualified Sleep & Respiratory Physician. A report is generated detailing obstructive and central sleep apnea events. This gives information on True Sleep & Sleep Staging. The aggregate of this information can diagnose sleep apnea with a high percentage of accuracy.

The added convenience that such devices offer make diagnosing sleep apnea so much easier!

Sleep Apnea Lab Studies

Lab sleep tests often use nocturnal polysomnography testing equipment to measure heart and brain activity, breathing patterns, arm and leg movements, and blood oxygen levels are monitored during sleep.

Traditionally sleep studies in overnight sleep centres have been the only way to diagnose sleep apnea. These require referrals and can be long and inconvenient, delaying the time to get tested and receive results.

At Home Sleep Apnea Testing

Advanced medical equipment has revolutionized traditional methods of testing for sleep apnea allowing a person to take a test and sleep in the comfort of their own bed and in their normal sleep surroundings. 

Measuring breathing patterns, sleep stages, heart rate activity, body position, snoring, oxygen levels, and detecting the different types of apnea is possible with a home sleep apnea test.

Sleep lab studies are facilitated by clinicians and assessed by sleep scientists. They require a referral and the process can take some time to get a result.

This can be a frustrating experience when you want to get results quickly.

Luckily home testing has come a long way and it's no longer necessary to conduct sleep apnea tests in a clinical setting.
