Test at Home

Test Comfortably at Home

McKinney Smiles offers a way for patients to be tested for sleep apnea in the comfort of their own home.

No more uncomfortable nights at a sleep center. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration and the American Medical Association, this type of testing is an accurate way to detect problems during the course of the night that might be harmful to one’s health. It is the only home test available from which a physician can make a diagnosis for sleep apnea. If results from the test are positive for sleep apnea, Dr. Lawrence is able to customize the best plan of action to help patients get the best night’s sleep possible.

 

Advantages to Home Testing Include:

 

  • Easy and comfortable
  • Use in your home while you sleep
  • Accurate, fast, reliable results
  • Diagnosis made by a medical physician

 

While some sleep apnea treatments require patients to spend the night in a sleep lab for observation, Dr. Lawrence offers an in-home alternative that comfortably allows him to determine the cause of a patient’s potential sleep disorder.

A small wrist mounted device, the WatchPAT allows testing to be done in the comfort of the patient’s own home, a place best suited for Dr. Lawrence to get clear understanding about the pattern of a patient’s sleep habits. Used by over 1 million patients worldwide, WatchPAT is the only FDA approved device that measures True Sleep Time (rather than the total device recording time) and all sleep stages (awake, light sleep, deep sleep and REM sleep) with up to 90% correlation to an overnight test conducted in a sleep lab.

 

The WatchPAT offers patients both comfort and convenience, along with such features as:

 

  • Improved reliability. Using only three contact points, the WatchPAT combines a simple to use interface with a less than 1 percent failure rate.
  • Improved accuracy. The WatchPAT is the only FDA approved Home Sleep Testing (HST) device that measures True Sleep Time.
  • Fully comprehensive. The WatchPAT is the only HST device that measures all stages of sleep.
