Sleep Apnea Preliminary Test
Overnight oximetry is a simple test that can easily be done at home. It provides basic information that may be useful in initially evaluating whether you have one of the more common sleep disorders, obstructive sleep apnea.
This screening test is easy and inexpensive, but it is not perfect. Oximeters only provide a limited amount of information. In addition, there are subtleties involved in sleep disorders that it may not be able to detect. This only gives us a baseline to determine if you need a more
in-depth sleep study.
