Sleep apnea testing presents one of the biggest challenges for diagnosing and treating patients.
Over 80% of sleep apnea cases are undiagnosed. These undiagnosed cases can happen for several reasons; Individuals don’t know the common signs or symptoms of sleep apnea, don’t know how easy it is to get tested, or aren’t sure if there are local hassle-free testing options.
Sleep Apnea Solutions offers at-home sleep testing.
We aim to expand access to Overland Park sleep apnea testing and treatment options.
Home sleep studies are sleep apnea tests that wear sensors to monitor your sleep performance and track sleep apnea episodes, also known as OSA (obstructive sleep apnea).
You may be familiar with a sleep lab. Some sleep tests are performed in an overnight lab. However, these tests are not necessary for most patients, are expensive, take you out of your normal routine, and often have long wait lists. At Sleep Apnea Solutions in Overland Park, we use at-home sleep apnea testing, which can effectively assess those who suspect they might have OSA.
You will wear the device for one or two nights under the direction of one of our sleep professionals. It will include sensors on your wrist, chest, and possibly nose. This method is a convenient alternative to the traditional PAP therapy assessment, which typically requires an overnight stay at a sleep center.
At-home devices test for similar metrics that you test for in a sleep lab. Today’s technologies allow you to take a sleep test in the comfort of your home.
After an initial consultation, we will set you up with an at-home sleep test.
At tome devices test for the following metrics.
This data will allow our sleep professionals to diagnose your sleep condition accurately.
Most people who struggle with sleep apnea are untreated. There are too many good reasons not to get tested if you have any signs or symptoms.
Our testing process is easy, local, and affordable. In Overland Park, our sleep apnea test is designed to be convenient for our patients.
Here is why you should get tested:
It’s straightforward and transparent. It’s easy to schedule an initial consultation and meet with one of our sleep professionals. Our team will be transparent with you about whether testing is the right next step.
You can treat sleep apnea as soon as possible. Sleep apnea can lead to serious health risks, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and stroke if untreated. Treating sleep apnea can immediately reduce these risks and improve your quality of life.
Additionally, with a home sleep apnea test, you can conveniently assess your breathing patterns and ahi (apnea-hypopnea index) from the comfort of your own home. This test is a critical step in determining the severity of your sleep apnea and guiding the appropriate treatment, which may include the use of CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy to maintain open airways during sleep.

Here are some of the benefits of using at-home testing:
After diagnosing sleep apnea, we use dental sleep medicine (DSM) to treat your condition. For those in Overland Park, KS, sleep apnea testing is available to accurately diagnose this disorder before proceeding with treatment.
Our sleep professionals focus on oral device therapy, which is a non-invasive treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea. The patient wears a custom-made oral appliance during sleep, which keeps the airway open and prevents sleep apnea episodes. This is particularly beneficial for patients who have difficulty with CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy or prefer a more portable solution.
Oral device therapy is convenient, easy to use, and effective. Our dentists custom-build these devices for each patient, ensuring a comfortable fit that supports breathing throughout the night.
Sleep apnea tests are very affordable and cost just a couple hundred dollars. This cost is more than worth it once you start treating obstructive sleep apnea. Our clinics accept a range of payment methods:
Our goal is to expand access to sleep apnea testing. We don’t want costs to get in the way, so call us to determine an option that works with your budget and timeline.
