Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
On February 26, mattress delivery company Online Bed Quilt comments on how some people are opting to take at-home sleep diagnostic tests and the authenticity of data collected.
According to The Tennessean, diagnosing serious sleep disorders is usually a lengthy process where patients visit a sleep lab and are monitored by doctors and scientists overnight. Now, there are tests administered at home that have been gaining popularity around the nation, reports The Tennessean.
The Tennessean reports that rather than spending the night in a sleep clinic, doctors go directly to the patient’s house and set them up for the night with monitors. These at-home tests are more convenient and accessible for the patient.
“Sleep tests are used to determine what type of disorder a person has and what the underlying issues may be,” Justin Maas, a representative from mattress delivery store Online Bed Quilt, commented. “It’s definitely more convenient for patients to use their own bed. Sometimes patients sleep differently in hospital beds. These at-home tests allow patients to fall sleep exactly as they would each night because they are in their own beds.”
The Tennessean reports that many doctors are skeptical. Though the at-home tests could cost $900 less than they would in the hospital, home tests are not as complex and thorough as tests done in sleep labs, reports The Tennessean.
“People that have serious sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea might benefit by spending the extra money to go to a sleep clinic,” Maas said. “Obstructive sleep apnea is linked to obesity, diabetes and heart attacks. If left untreated, it can actually be fatal. If you believe you might be suffering from this disorder, you should probably go to a regular sleep clinic, even if it might be a bit of an inconvenience.”
