Take a few minutes to take our SleepAware risk assessment
. The answers to this survey will help determine if you suffer from symptoms associated with a sleep disorder. A representative from Trinity will be happy to discuss the next steps in the treatment process, including sleep tests and assistive devices.
If you are at risk for a sleep disorder, the first step in diagnosing a sleep disorder is to perform a sleep study. Some studies require an overnight stay in the hospital, while other patients may be approved to have a sleep study at home. Home studies can provide the added benefit of capturing data over multiple nights of sleep.
In both studies, patients usually wear a breathing mask and are connected to electrical devices that measure several factors including:
- Blood oxygen saturation
- Respiration rates
- Snoring level
- Heath movement
- Head position
