To screen for sleep apnea and snoring our clinic uses a home sleep study that measures your blood oxygen level and breathing while you sleep in your own bed. This not only provides a more comfortable and convenient setting to sleep in but also allows Dr. Pehling to evaluate you on multiple nights.
If you are positive for apnea then referral to a medical specialist will be necessary. Our home sleep study unit is also used to determine the effectiveness of the oral sleep appliance when it is being used to treat snoring and sleep apnea.
The MediByte unit is very small and allows a patient to not only sleep in their own bed but also does not interfere with a person’s natural sleep position like a laboratory based PSG.
