Home Sleep Test
If you snore, are overweight and excessively tired throughout the day, there is a strong chance you have Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
It is even more likely if you have been observed choke or gasp during your sleep. Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is quite common, with up to 16% of adults believed to experience it.
OSA causes your breathing to be interrupted frequently during sleep, preventing you from getting good quality restorative sleep. This sleep disruption causes tiredness, irritability, lack of concentration, and can increase the risk of other health complications such as stroke and heart disease, among others.
However – it can be successfully treated, and the symptoms alleviated.
Where can I get a Sleep Test?
All sleep disorder treatments should start with a sleep test/sleep study. Before you can receive treatment from the NHS or purchase a CPAP machine from us, you need to have OSA confirmed.
You can order our private Detailed Sleep Test online NOW.
How It Works
Once you order the sleep test, you will receive a simple-to-use device that you wear overnight in your own bed. Then you need to return the equipment, and our qualified sleep professionals assess the data. We aim to send your results within five working days; but please allow up to ten.
Your results are confidential and not shared with your GP, the DVLA, or anyone else.
The NHS can also perform sleep Tests. They will require a GP to refer you to a sleep clinic, who typically require an overnight stay at a hospital with sensors hooked up to various parts of your body. They will then be able to inform you of your diagnosis. This process can take several months.

What is an in-home Sleep Test?
An in-home sleep test is a private test conducted in your bed. The simple equipment is sent to you to wear at home.
The Detailed Sleep Test works by monitoring your heart rate and blood oxygen levels throughout the night. In many cases, this alone would be enough to identify Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
However, in addition to these, our Detailed Sleep Test also records your body position, body movements, snoring intensity, and crucially your Peripheral Arterial Tone. This key physiological signal can indicate respiratory disturbances during sleep. It would be best if you filled in our medical questionnaire as well.
A Detailed Sleep Test provides the most efficient, affordable way to have Obstructive Sleep Apnoea professionally confirmed.
