Sleep Apnea Diagnosis

Diagnosing sleep apnea is accomplished by an easy and painless sleep test. While you sleep, the following important information is collected:

  • How often you take a breath
  • Time between breaths
  • Pulse
  • Heart rate
  • Oxygen level
  • Eye movement
  • Many more factors

This information (many more factors) is needed for a sleep apnea diagnosis.

There are two different options for you to take a sleep test:

  • With an at-home test
  • In a sleep center

Your doctor will determine the best test for you.
