Home Sleep Test (HST)

What is Home Sleep Test?

Home Sleep Test (HST) is a sleep study tool to diagnosis the obstructive sleep apnea. These are small portable devices. Home Sleep Test is also called ‘Unattended Sleep Study’.

Home Sleep Test (HST) is typically preferred by patients over in-lab studies.

Portable or home sleep studies are in our Centre. Not all patients are suited to a home sleep study. Our doctors will assess your suitability by conducting a comprehensive sleep assessment and advise you as to whether this is a suitable option for you.

Home sleep testing is primarily used to diagnose Sleep Apnea and will be recommended by our Specialist if:

  • It is highly likely that you have moderate to severe Sleep Apnea
  • You have no significant medical conditions other than the suspected Sleep Apnea

The sleep study includes similar physiologic measurements as a laboratory sleep study but you sleep in the comfort of your home.

This study include:

  • Body oxygen level by measuring light transmission through the finger with an “oximeter”
  • Airflow through the nose
  • Chest and abdomen movements
  • Heart activity also known as electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Brain activity also known as electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • Muscle activity also known as electromyogram (EMG)
  • Eye activity also known as electrooculogram (EOG)
