Why do I need a Home Sleep Test? Home Sleep Tests are commonly used by physicians to diagnose sleep breathing disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Our patients have already been diagnosed with OSA during their Data Appointment which is why we use them mid-treatment to check the efficacy of our therapy.
What is included in the Braebon MediByte® Kit and what is each of their purposes? The MediByte® Recorder is equivalent to the quality of a sleep laboratory in the palm of the patients’ hand. The recorder contains sensors for body position, pulse oximetry, and a pressure transducer. Each sensor includes the same high-quality and reliable biosensors that are used in a sleep laboratory. These sensors monitor airflow, respiratory effort, and blood oxygenation. There are 5 connectors and each are unique and connect differently to simplify the hook-up process. Each connector locks into place causing sensor data to be continuously captured. A snore microphone records every single snore and will offer precise audio playback for your sleep physician. When played back, it sounds as if you were in the room during the patient’s snoring.
Can I use this with my CPAP device? The MediByte® Home Sleep Test is compatible with any CPAP device. The MediByte® connects to any CPAP device in the industry with the standard luer connector. When the study is completed, software will show important information from airflow as well as a concise breakdown of study parameters for the sleep physician to review.
