Frequently Asked Questions About…

Doing An “At-Home Sleep Study lincoln, NE

Which is better an at-home sleep study or an in-lab sleep study Orderded by A “sleep specialist Lincoln, NE?”

An in-lab sleep study is considered the benchmark for determining sleep apnea, but don’t let that deter you from doing an at-home sleep study. “Sleep studies in Lincoln, NE” done at home can be of great benefit and get you back on the road to sleeping soundly again. There can be some limitations with at-home sleep tests, so ask a healthcare professional if it is right for you.

For most, an at-home sleep study will be valid if the patient receives two hours of sleep.

Are there any disadvantages for home-sleep testing?

While an at-home sleep study is accurate and has helped many it’s important to know that a home sleep test doesn’t gather as much data as an in-lab sleep test. If you’re concerned you might have sleep apnea, there is nothing wrong with trying a home sleep test first, and then depending upon the results, receiving further testing from an in-lab sleep study.

What happens if I can’t sleep during a “home sleep study Lincoln, NE?”

While not being able to sleep is a real possibility for many, as it’s likely one of the reasons that led you to testing in the first place, you might be able to take a sleeping pill. Something such as a natural sleeping aid, like Melatonin or Benadryl, will be all you need, but be sure to ask your provider so you get the most accurate test results.

Caffeine. Having caffeine late in the day can disrupt your sleeping habits. If you often drink beverages with caffeine later in the day and have trouble sleeping, but don’t feel as though you have sleep apnea, consider setting a time of day at which you will stop drinking caffeine. Caffeine has may effects on the brain and can stimulate the mind, which, unfortunately, can also keep you from getting a good night’s rest.

YES! At-home sleep tests are very accurate. While they do capture information about your sleeping patterns they sometimes do not capture as much information as an in-lab sleep test would. With that being said, however, they are still widely used, and allow for a sleep apnea diagnosis in cases where in-lab testing might not be feasible (cost, mental health status, work schedule, family obligations, etc.).
