At Home Sleep Study Specialist in Westmoreland County

Home Sleep Testing

Home sleep testing, or HST, is a procedure that can be completed outside of the normal sleep lab setting to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). On most occasions, the test is performed in the patient’s home, which can be more comfortable and convenient for them. Dr. Jain understands many people may delay getting help for their sleep problem if they feel uncomfortable with the idea of having to spend the night at a sleep lab. So, to provide the care you need, Dr. Jain and the team offer home sleep testing.

At Westmoreland Sleep Medicine, Dr. Jain specializes in conducting home sleep testing and will evaluate your data in order to make a diagnosis. After a HST, Dr. Jain may suggest lifestyle modifications or therapies that can help reduce symptoms of OSA.

If you would like more information about how an at-home sleep disorder test can help you find relief, Dr. Jain and the team at Westmoreland Sleep Medicine are here to help. Schedule your first consultation with us online and we'll get you started on the road to better sleep.

Sleep Apnea Test at Home: How It Works

If you are identified by Dr. Jain as a patient eligible for Home Sleep Testing, you will meet with a staff member right after the consultation who will instruct you on the set-up and operation of the home testing equipment.

After completing the testing for one night, you will return the equipment to the center. If the results prove positive for OSA, you will be required to complete either an “in-lab” CPAP treatment study, or proceed with an Auto-Cpap unit setup.

A follow-up appointment will be scheduled with Dr. Jain.

Patients who are deemed to be “uncomplicated”, and have a high probability of being diagnosed with moderate to severe OSA are likely to be good candidates for this type of testing.

Patients presenting with heart failure, serious lung disease (COPD), neuromuscular disorders, heart disease or various other sleep disorders would be better candidates for performing their study in the sleep lab setting. Several other exclusions to HST exist, which is why an evaluation by Dr Jain is required prior to performing the home study.


We are now introducing the Zoll Itamar WatchPat testing devices to patients eligible for home study testing. These devices are easy to use, reliable and accurate for diagnosing patients with suspected sleep apnea. With much success over the last few months, the patients have appreciated being able to get excellent care in the comfort of their own home. This allows a more realistic environment for Dr. Jain to gain insight on their personal sleep habits. It is a 3 point contact device for simple, easy use which includes a wrist piece, small chest sensor, and finger probe.

HST cannot be used to diagnose any sleep disorder other than OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea). It is not appropriate for pediatric patients, and it should only be performed after a comprehensive evaluation has been completed by a qualified sleep specialist such as Dr. Jain.

What happens if I test negative for sleep apnea treatment at home?

If the HST is negative for OSA, further testing or a follow-up visit will be arranged with Dr. Jain depending on your specific situation.
