A Home Diagnostic Sleep Study is by necessity a less comprehensive test compared to a laboratory based supervised Sleep Study but the benefit of a Home Test is that it can be performed in the setting of familiar surroundings.
It is our view that care should be taken to ensure that best diagnostic test is performed for our patients. As per the published American Academy Of Sleep Medicine Guidelines (Collop et al, JCSM 2007), it is recommended that a home sleep study is used as part of a comprehensive sleep evaluation in patients who do not have moderate to severe pulmonary disease, neuromuscular disease or congestive cardiac failure.
To make a direct referral for a Home Diagnostic Sleep Study please visit the referral page download and complete the referral form and return by fax (+61247225386) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We regret that only Diagnostic Sleep Study, Home Diagnostic Sleep Study and Overnight Oximetry are able to be directly referred by non-sleep physicians ie General Practitioners, other specialists. The other more specialised tests can be referred after specialist sleep consultation.
