At-Home Sleep Apnea Test

At-Home Sleep Apnea Test

Thursday, August 18, 2022

Only about 4% of those with sleep apnea actually get a sleep study done to diagnose it. Why? Probably because the thought of “sleeping” in a strange lab room with electrodes all over your body, knowing that someone is watching you, is not very exciting.


Good news! Now there is a way to have a sleep study done in the comfort of your own home. You wear a wristband attached to a finger monitor while you sleep. The device measures oxygen in the blood and collects eight hours of sleep data on a memory card.

The next day, the doctor downloads the information for instant results. This home test is called the “Watch-Pat 300.″ It only costs approximately $200.

If you have put this off, ask your doctor about the Watch-Pat 100. You deserve to know if you have sleep apnea. It could save your life.

The IJustWantTo Correct My Tongue Thrust program does not treat sleep apnea but does have a 96% proven record for stopping snoring.
