Sleep Study


The first step to getting a good night’s rest is determining what is preventing you from doing so. An at-home sleep study test is the perfect solution to figure out what the cause is behind your restless nights, in a comfortable and safe environment, on your time.

What Is a Sleep Study?

A sleep study, also called polysomnography, is a test used to diagnose sleep disorders. Often, it is used to diagnose sleep apnea, a condition in which you stop breathing during sleep. An individual with this condition may not even be aware of it! Untreated, sleep apnea can lead to excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue, as well as more serious health problems such as high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes and stroke.

Why Choose an At-Home Sleep Study?

Unlike in-lab sleep studies, using a home sleep testing device provides a more realistic environment to monitor your sleep. The test is done from the comfort and privacy of your bedroom and involves fewer wires attached to you, so that you can rest easier. Other benefits of choosing an at-home sleep study include:

  • Accessibility: For individuals with disabilities or certain medical conditions, it may be easier and safer for them to receive an at-home sleep study. This is especially true in cases such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Comfort: You’re more likely to sleep better and easier in a familiar environment, like your own bedroom. You will receive instruction from our team on how to administer the test at home.
  • Convenience: Not only can you perform the at-home sleep study on your schedule, but you don’t have to worry about driving to a sleep center.
  • Cost: Home sleep testing costs far less than in-lab testing and is typically covered by insurance. Wondering what insurance Oklahoma SleepSource accepts? Visit our Accepted Insurances page.

Who Is Eligible for a Sleep Study?

For some patients with risk factors for obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, an at-home sleep test may not be appropriate. Home sleep testing may not be recommended for those with:

  • Central Sleep Apnea
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Chronic Opiate or Narcotic Use
  • Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
  • Cognitive Impairment
  • Emphysema
  • Idiopathic Hypersomnia
  • Seizures
  • Stroke (CVA/TIA)
  • Prescribed Home Oxygen Therapy

We ask patients with any of the above diagnoses to immediately notify the Oklahoma SleepSource team at (405) 839-3001 and we’ll confirm with your medical provider the appropriateness of home sleep testing.

Why Is Sleep Important?

Sleep is a vital function that allows your mind and body to recharge and recover, leaving you feeling refreshed and more alert when you wake up. Healthy sleep is an essential component of every person’s health and helps your body remain healthy and prevent diseases. Without enough sleep, the brain cannot function properly.

Why Is Diagnosing a Sleep Disorder Important?

According to the National Sleep Foundation, more than 50 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder. These disorders significantly affect concentration, attention and memory. Patients with undiagnosed sleep disorders are more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety and are at greater risk for high blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmias, diabetes, stroke and death. The significant health consequences of sleep disorders have led experts to agree that these problems warrant medical attention.

Who Are We?

Oklahoma SleepSource is your local at-home sleep study expert who can help you get the sleep you deserve by diagnosing sleep apnea or a potential sleep disorder at home. We saw a trend in patients waiting for extended periods to receive a sleep study and preferring to do at-home sleep tests instead of going into a lab – so we’ve made it our objective to help. Our mission became to offer these sleep tests so patients could get their results in a convenient and timely manner in their favorite place—home!

What to Expect

You’re ready to sleep better and we’re here to help you do so! Take a look at what you can expect from the home sleep study process:

  1. Once you receive a referral from your doctor, they will send it over to Oklahoma SleepSource.
  2. You will stop by our clinic to pick up your home sleep test device and bring it home with you. At that time, we will answer any of your questions and explain how to use the device—it’s very easy and user-friendly!
  3. You will also receive a Patient Packet, which can be downloaded by clicking the underlined link. The Patient Packet will provide you with additional information about the sleep study. The home sleep test device will come with instructions on how to use it.
  4. Go to bed at your normal bedtime and try to sleep in bed for 6 hours. If you don’t get at least 4 hours of sleep or experience other difficulties, give us a call at (405) 839-3001.
  5. Once you complete your home sleep test, please return the device back to Oklahoma SleepSource the next day unless other pick-up arrangements have been scheduled. At-home sleep studies provide only the diagnostic portion of your sleep study. This means you will not be seen by or be in direct communication with our sleep physicians.
  6. Once we have your home sleep test, the results will be reviewed by our board-certified sleep specialist and the final sleep report will be faxed to your medical provider. Your medical provider will review the sleep study results with you and map out a plan of action for your sleep disorder and symptoms.

We recommend that you schedule an appointment with your ordering physician one week after your home sleep test to review your results.
