What's A Home Sleep Apnea Test (HST)?
An HST is easy, convenient, and done at home. Unlike an overnight sleep study, which provides a more thorough assessment of sleep issues, an HST is used to diagnose only sleep apnea. It records your breathing, blood oxygen levels and breathing effort.
It can either be picked up from one of our locations or mailed to you.
Several parts of the HST unit that come into direct contact with the patient (e.g. the cannula/sensor around the nose and mouth) are disposable, one-time use only items. Any reusable parts (e.g. belt, oximeter, the HST unit) are thoroughly disinfected between uses.
