When considering to undergo diagnostic test, we tend to prefer which is more affordable and more convenient. In cases of sleep apnea, Home Sleep Test (HST) is budget-friendly and more favorable compared to those tests done in the clinic or hospital setting.
HST is a sleep study that is done at the comforts of your home. Usually, you will be asked to come to the doctor’s clinic during the day of the test to pick up and demonstrate how to use HST equipment. You will do the test yourself and the results will then be uploaded the following day in the clinic. The choice of the test depends on your symptoms and other medical or sleep conditions. Further evaluation will be done by your sleep specialist.
