Home Sleep Testing

Testing for sleep apnea in the comfort of your own home has many advantages instead of an overnight stay in a “sleep lab”:

  • Less disruption to your normal sleep since you are in your own environment and can sleep in any position.
  • The device used requires fewer electrodes and wires than the technician attended overnight Polysomnography sleep test.
  • No wasted time – Usually, only one night is required to diagnose the existence and severity of sleep apnea.

We have done thousands of home sleep tests, and have published research articles on the accuracy of home sleep testing in adults and children. To read more about this, click the links below.

Article 1.

Article 2.

There are several devices that can be used to test at home, some are more reliable than others. Most of our patients are tested with our Nox T3 home sleep testing devices, or the Apnea link air devices which have been shown to be very reliable in the thousands of home sleep tests BlueSleep has done. 

The home sleep device records breathing, body position, snoring, heart rate, blood oxygen levels, respiratory effort and body movement. In most cases one night is sufficient for a diagnosis, but in about 5% of cases the study needs to be repeated.

The test is interpreted by our board certified sleep physicians the day you return to the center for your follow-up visit. Part of the follow-up visit includes an in-depth discussion of all treatment options available for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.

Sleep Apnea & Snoring

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is an intermittent interruption of breathing during sleep. Apneas or hypopneas (breathing pauses) can occur upwards of 50 times an hour and cause a very disrupted night’s sleep. This result is excessive daytime sleepiness, poor mental and physical performance during the day, and can lead to serious medical conditions. Because it happens at night it is often unrecognized both by the sufferers and their doctors.

Sleep Apnea can be a very serious condition and is associated with the development of many diseases including:

  • high blood pressure
  • heart disease
  • irregular heart beats
  • stroke
  • diabetes
  • obesity
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • memory loss
  • headaches
  • impotence
  • loss of sex drive

In children it can be associated with poor school performance and in some cases attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Sleep apnea results from an obstruction of the upper breathing passages during sleep. When we breathe, air comes in through the nose and mouth and travels through relatively small passages in the back of the nose, the back of the throat, down to the deep part of the throat and finally into the lungs. Air enters the lungs through the voice box (larynx). Any obstruction or narrowing along this path can lead to an obstruction.

There are many causes for sleep apnea. A large tongue, a narrow jaw, family history, gaining weight, the shape of the face. Significant weight gain and obesity are almost always associated with sleep apnea because of a narrowing of the breathing passages and greater difficulty breathing when in deep sleep.

Sleep apnea is very common and may affect up to 30% of the population.

Our Treatments For Sleep Apnea and Snoring

  • In office minimally invasive procedures (Radiofrequency treatments)
  • Custom made oral appliance therapy​​
  • Same day oral appliances for snoring
  • CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure therapy)
  • Weight loss Programs Other treatments (diet, Didgeridoo, tongue exercises)
  • Exploring non-invasive alternatives

In Office Minimally Invasive Procedures:

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA), is a minimally invasive procedure done in office to treat habitual snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.

The procedure lasts only a few minutes and is performed under local anesthesia.

RFA can shrink the tissues of the soft palate and tongue and eliminate snoring and reduce or eliminate sleep apnea.

Treatment is repeated after 8 to 10 weeks in order to obtain
maximum result.

Custom-Made Oral Appliances:

Recent medical studies show that oral appliance therapy is as effective as CPAP in controlling sleep apnea. At BlueSleep, oral appliance therapy is offered to all patients who prefer this treatment for sleep apnea, or have been unable to tolerate CPAP.

Our staff has one of the largest experience in the US with oral appliances for sleep apnea; the devices are fitted and adjusted in our center. A home sleep study is performed with the appliance in place to confirm that the treatment is effective.

Oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea is covered by medical insurance (not by dental insurance)

Before being fitted with an oral appliance, be sure to discuss your entire medical history with our practitioners especially if you have a history of temporomandibular disorder (TMD), have worn dental implants within the past year, have dentures or are undergoing orthodontic treatment, have loose teeth, abscesses or gum disease, or if you have a history of asthma, emphysema, or any other respiratory disorder.

Need your oral appliance today? Let us know!

Same Day Appliances:

For snoring, or mild to moderate sleep apnea, a same day appliance can be made in a few minutes during your consultation with our specialists at BlueSleep. Same day appliances are semi-custom made, and are adjustable. They work the same way as fully custom oral appliances by keeping the lower jaw forward during sleep, and keeping the airway open.

Advantages of same day appliances is mainly price and convenience of getting an immediate treatment for your snoring (in some cases these appliances are also effective for sleep apnea).

Disadvantages is that they tend to be less comfortable, more bulky, and do not last as long as custom appliances. They have no warranty.

Getting married tomorrow, going on a camping trip and sharing a tent with buddies or girlfriends?

Give it a try.

Same day appliances are also a way to help you decide if you will be able to sleep with an oral appliance, before commiting to the fully custom made design.

The Didgeridoo and Sleep Apnea

The practice of the didgeridoo has been clinically proven to treat sleep apnea and snoring.

In 2006 the British Medical Journal reported a study that compared two groups of patients with moderate sleep apnea: one group that practiced 6 days a week for 25 minutes and another group which did not play didgeridoo. They found that the group that practiced didgeridoo had a significant decrease in their snoring and great improvement in their sleep apnea.

More About Music for Dreams

Studies have shown that relaxation in the form of calming classical music can help patients with sleep disorders including insomnia and sleep apnea.

CPAP adherence can be improved by using relaxation music CDs and an instructional script. A prospective randomized controlled study showed a significant improvement in CPAP compliance in the first month of therapy.
(reference: Patient Education Combined in a Music and Habit-Forming Intervention for Adherence to Continuous Positive Airway (CPAP) Prescribed for Sleep Apnea. Patient Educ Couns. 2009 Feb; 74(2):184-190).

Relaxation is recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) in the treatment guidelines for Insomnia. Let BlueSleep improve your sleep in the most gentle and soothing manner.

BlueSleep’s existing "Music for Dreams" collection consists of carefully selected pieces for solo piano from thousands of works, spanning over three centuries of repertoire. As opposed to a live performance where the goal is to maintain the audience’s attention; "Music for Dreams" creates an atmosphere that helps the listener’s thoughts drift away. The performance dynamic contrasts were de-emphasized and the microphones in the studio were positioned to make the powerful Steinway concert grand piano sound distant, soft, and dreamy. The pieces were arranged in a very particular order, transitioning from the shorter and more lyrical ones to longer, more introspective, and highly meditative compositions. The key structure in the set was also meant to help prevent any excessive dissonant auditory stimulation. This technique was designed to create a natural fade-out, simulating closing eyelids and the slowing heartbeat of a person drifting off to sleep.

It takes an average of 10-20 minutes to fall asleep (the sleep onset latency time) from the time one lies down in bed at night. To account for the individual variations in sleep latency times, we made "Music for Dreams" a 45-minute collection. This allows most of the listeners to be sound asleep well before the end of the recording. Many of those who have already experienced "Music for Dreams" admit to dozing off after only a few tracks.
