Home Sleep Apnea Testing

How Home Sleep Apnea Testing Works:

  1. Download the NightOwl® app from the Apple Store or Google Play Store. Then enter the access code from the email you received.
  2. Remove the NightOwl® device, instructions, and adhesives.
  3. Pair the NightOwl® device with your smartphone by pressing and holding the button on the device until the light flashes red. Click “start connecting” on the NightOwl® App. When the device has paired, click next.
  4. Remove the adhesive cover from one of the finger straps, then place the NightOwl® device on the corner of the adhesive so that the white side is touching the adhesive. Place the sensor against your skin on the part of your finger that you would use to leave a fingerprint. Then secure the device by wrapping the adhesive strap around your finger like a band-aid.
  5. Start your sleep test by hitting “Record”. In the morning, press “Wake Up” to stop the test and upload your recordings. Then, the app will ask you a few questions about your sleep.

Benefits of Home Sleep Apnea Testing

Traditional sleep testing has been conducted at sleep clinics for years. However, scheduling a sleep study can be both challenging and costly. Not to mention that in-lab sleep studies can be affected by sleeping in an unfamiliar environment. For these reasons, innovative sleep specialists are encouraging their patients to try at-home sleep testing. 

These are the main reasons why:

  • Convenient and hassle free – No doctor’s office visits, taking time off work, multiple copays, finding a sleep lab, or sleeping in a strange environment. Testing will take place from the comfort of your own home. Simply order the test and it will be shipped to your home.
  • Comfort – No need for sticky sensors, cables, or bulky testing equipment. Instead, the device can be comfortably worn on your finger. You can also enjoy the comfort of sleeping in your own bed. 
  • Affordable – While both in-lab and in-home sleep tests are usually partially covered by insurance plans, in-home studies are much more affordable. An in-lab sleep test can cost anywhere from $500 to over $3,000, and your out of pocket expense will determine how much of this price you pay. In some cases, insurance companies will only pay a small portion of this fee, leaving you with the bulk of the payment. 
  • PRIVATE and SECURE – Your health is your business and test results will not be shared with life/health insurance companies or government agencies, nor will your results be part of your permanent health record. 
  • No Hidden Fees – In lab sleep tests may have additional fees such as multiple copays for multiple doctors and appointments. In-home sleep tests eliminate the need for multiple appointments and doctor copays, preventing these additional fees. 
  • Easy to Use – The NightOwl® device can be easily placed on the tip of your finger and does not require any chest or wrist-worn component.

Overall, in-home sleep tests offer patients a range of logistical, financial, and diagnostic benefits. With at-home sleep tests, anyone can easily and effectively have their sleep evaluated by a sleep specialist.
