Main Content

A Home Sleep Test, or HST, is similar to lab studies in that it involves the use of a portable monitoring system equipped with a small recording device, a sensor on the finger and a nasal cannula. 

A Home Sleep Test is used to diagnose Sleep Apnea and Oxygen levels. The Home Sleep Test will not diagnosis other sleep issues such as Restless Leg Syndrome, or Narcolepsy.

An initial appointment with your primary care physician or a specialist such as a Cardiologist, Pulmonologist or E.N.T. is needed to evaluate your signs and symptoms prior to testing. Once your Physician reviews your symptoms, they will typically forward your order to our office.

Once your order has been received by GTSSC, your insurance will be verified and you will be contacted by our office to schedule the delivery of the equipment as well as review the testing procedures. 

After the two nights of testing, you will return the unit to GTSSC using the pre-paid shipping envelop provided. The data on the equipment will be processed the same day it is returned back and our Sleep Physician will review the results. GTSSC will contact you within 24 hours to discuss the results and treatment options. The results will also be sent directly to your referring Physician.

If the home sleep test turns out to be inconclusive, or some other disorder is suspected, an overnight sleep study in the sleep lab may still be needed.
