Sweet Dreams HST System (Home Sleep Testing)

ARES Unit Displayed on Person It is estimated that 20 million people in the U.S. population are suspected of having Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). It has been found that 82% of men and 93% of women with moderate to severe sleep apnea have not yet been diagnosed. Symptoms of sleep apnea include: loud snoring, fatigue after waking up, memory loss, headaches, drowsiness during the day, and frequent interruptions in sleep. Complaints by the bed partners of the loud snoring and cessation of breath are the reasons most patients take action.

Once the decision has been made to obtain testing for OSA, several obstacles often present themselves. Scheduling a night in a sleep lab and coordinating the patient's schedule often leads to a 3 month wait. If insurance is billed, co-pays or deductibles often run high, as sleep labs charge $800 to $3000 for a single nights test. Patients also tend to sleep better at home in their own bedroom as opposed to sleeping in a foreign environment. These are some of the reasons Home Sleep Diagnostics have become a popular option when being tested.

ARES Unit Home Sleep Testing is easy for anyone to set up. Patients are sent a sleep-wearable, wireless physiological recorder worn on the forehead that acquires and stores up to 3 nights of nocturnal data. A nasal canula is incorporated to measure flow of breath. After a night of sleeping in his or her own bedroom the patient simply returns the unit in the box it was shipped in. Once received, a report is generated.

Reports reflect the number of Apneas (when the person stops breathing) the user had during the night along with measurements of heart rate, oxygen saturation, sleep position, flow from the cannula, and breathing patterns.

The ARES unit provides not only the diagnosis of OSA, but can also be used by CPAP users who have not been retested for a year or more. All in all, home sleep diagnostic testing proves to be the most affordable in diagnosing a greater population affected by Obstructed Sleep Apena.
