OSA Diagnosis (Sleep Study)
Having a sleep study will determine whether you have OSA.
This is usually a portable study done overnight in your own home. The small sleep study monitor will be loaned for you to use on one night.
This involves nasal prongs (to detect snoring and airflow), a finger oximeter (to measure oxygen level) and a belt to detect effort of breathing. The use of this equipment will be demonstrated at your appointment.
Occasionally, a sleep study may involve a full overnight study at Waikato Hospital.
