Sleep apnoea patients can be tested at home

  • Comment

Patients with obstructive sleep apnoea can be tested at home with portable monitoring devices.

Researchers have found that testing patients at home with portable monitoring devices is as successful as an overnight monitoring stay in hospital.

The condition is relatively easy to treat, but expensive to diagnose, and the study found that patients tested at home before treatment showed as much improvement as those tested in a hospital setting.
