Sleep Apena Testing
To determine if you are suffering from sleep apnea, Dr. Tregaskes will recommend a sleep test. This might involve a consultation with a sleep specialist followed by an overnight study at a sleep clinic or a home sleep study. We may also consider a home sleep study from our office.
What Is the Ares Home Sleep Study?
The Ares (Apnea Risk Evaluation System) is a patient-friendly home-based sleep study used to determine the severity of the patient’s sleep apnea. Once the patient has returned the device after wearing it for 1-2 nights, we then electronically send that information to a sleep specialist who analyzes it and makes his or her recommendation. Mild to moderate sleep apnea is best treated with a dental appliance.
The Ares Measures:
- Blood oxygen saturation (amount of oxygen in the blood)
- Pulse rate
- Snoring levels
- Head movement and head position
