Home Sleep Apnea Test
Now that you have the Home Sleep Test, how do you use it?
Home Sleep Test Instructions
Provided below are the Wellfirst Sleep Diagnostics patient instructions for the Sleepview Home Sleep Test. This is a self-administered test. Please watch the Sleepview user video provided by our Home Sleep Test Partners at CleveMed and read all instructions before beginning your test. Upon receiving your device you have 2 nights to use it before mailing it back (ONE night of recording is all that is necessary). If the device is not mailed back to us after 2 nights we will charge a late fee.
If you experience an emergency during your home sleep test, please immediately call 911.

STEP 2: READ DIRECTIONS
Written instruction pamphlet:
STEP 3: PERFORM SETUP
Setup the Sleepview device on your person on the outside of your sleep attire following the manufacturer's directions and video. For both male and female patients, we advise that there is no bare-chested or nude sleeping with the device. Please wear at least a t-shirt or pajama top and bottom to sleep with the device.
STEP 4: GO TO SLEEP
Sleep in a position that is most comfortable for you. If you are able to sleep supine (on your back), you may be encouraged to do so as sleep apnea and snoring tend to be more prominent when sleeping on your back. However, follow your physician or healthcare provider's directions (if any) regarding sleep position.
If you awaken at any point during the night to change sleep position or use the restroom, we recommend you reconfirm correct sensor placement with (3) green lights and troubleshoot as needed.
Please remove the Sleepview device from your person before smoking, eating, drinking, or bathing.
Unless otherwise instructed please use the Sleepview Home Sleep Test device for ONE night of recording.

STEP 5: PACK AND RETURN HST
After the test is over, pack the device and tape into the box for shipping (excluding the disposable nasal cannula, belt and batteries) and return in the box it was shipped to you. There is a $250.00 daily charge for devices not returned fully and operable or late. The replacement cost is $3,500.00 for broken, inoperable, damaged devices or those that are not returned in usable condition. Please ensure you pack the test with care.
INFORMATION ABOUT MY KIT:
The device has been calibrated and confirmed operable prior to shipment.
The device surface has been cleaned with a germicidal disinfectant and gentle soap.
Members of the clinical staff will score and interpret the information collected through the home sleep test device. This may take several days. One of our board certified sleep physicians will review the results. If the results are unclear, the physician may recommend an in-lab sleep study.
You may need an additional in-lab sleep study if:
Your home sleep apnea test did not record enough data for a physician to make a diagnosis
Your home sleep apnea test results indicate that you do not have obstructive sleep apnea and the physician suspects another sleep disorder
If you are diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, the clinical staff will discuss treatment options with you and develop a plan.
WE WILL REACH OUT TO YOU WHEN THE RESULTS HAVE BEEN SCORED AND REVIEWED.
