NovaSom Home Sleep Test
Test for obstructive sleep apnea in the comfort and privacy of home.
The NovaSom Home Sleep Test is a convenient alternative to sleep center testing that can be performed in the comfort and privacy of a patient’s home, at a small fraction of the cost of a sleep lab study. This information is intended for consumer education. Please discuss with your provider because only he or she can order a home sleep test.
The NovaSom Home Sleep Test Advantage
The NovaSom home sleep test device measures the parameters recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine to diagnose OSA, using just three small sensors:
Because of this, patients can sleep in whatever position is most comfortable and get up during the night as necessary.
How Does the NovaSom Home Sleep Test Process Work?
Your physician can determine your probability of having OSA with a simple sleep apnea risk assessment and a physical exam. At that time he or she will determine if the patient is appropriate for home sleep testing. If so, the doctor places an order for the NovaSom home sleep testing technology and the testing device is mailed directly to the patient’s home within days.
When the device arrives, the person can test that night. The NovaSom home sleep testing device uses voice prompts to instruct patients on how to set up the sensors and begin the sleep test. The patient can then sleep normally and comfortably in their own bed.
If there are any questions, NovaSom has a live 24/7 Clinical and Technical support team available through our toll-free number. After testing, a report is prepared for the ordering physician and, the device is shipped back to NovaSom.
Diagnosis with NovaSom Home Sleep Testing Technology
Once the sleep study results are delivered to the doctor, the patient should discuss the results with the doctor, and if positive for OSA, discuss the best therapy options as well. There are many different treatments available today depending on each person’s specific needs and together the patient and doctor will determine the best option.
