A sleep study (polysomnogram) is usually necessary in order to accurately diagnose obstructive sleep apnea. Fortunately, most of our patients can be evaluated with a home sleep study device, allowing you to perform the test from the comfort of your own bed. After the study is completed, the device is returned, and our ENT of Georgia South medical team downloads the data to interpret it and make a diagnosis. Overall, home sleep testing is much more convenient and appealing to our patients than traditional in-lab sleep studies. In addition, home sleep studies are less expensive.
ENT of Georgia South also works directly with several sleep centers around Atlanta that offer a spa-like environment for overnight sleep testing. If in-lab testing is necessary, our office will find a sleep center with which your insurance company contracts and arrange for your diagnostic sleep study.
