Cerebra's Home Sleep Study (HSS)
Cerebra’s Home Sleep Study is a good alternative to an overnight, in-lab sleep study. It is capable of measuring most parameters that are captured in an overnight sleep center with the added benefit of being completed in the comfort of one’s own home. It is only just recently that Home Sleep Studies have become accessible and viable options due to the invention of our portable and user friendly EEG monitor called the Prodigy Sleep Monitor (electroencephalogram- an essential measure which records the electrical activity of your brain while you sleep). Cerebra’s Home Sleep Study also provides the user with their Sleep Depth Score, a new and revolutionary measure of sleep depth.
Cerebra’s Home Sleep Study measures the following parameters during sleep:
- EEG(electroencephalogram) to measure and record brain wave activity, providing an accurate picture of sleep and sleep architecture
- EMG (electromyogram) to record muscle activity such as face twitches, and tooth grinding; it also helps in determining the presence of REM stage sleep
- EOG (electro-oculogram) to record eye movements; these movements are important in determining the different sleep stages, particularly REM stage sleep
- Heart rate monitor
- Nasal airflow sensor to record airflow
- Sensors to record snoring
- Oximetry to record blood oxygen levels
- Chest belt to measure respiratory effort
The biggest difference between a Home Sleep Study and a Home Sleep Apnea Test is that a Home Sleep Study actually records sleep. It provides diagnostic accuracy and in-depth information on:
- Sleep Quality
- Sleep Efficiency
- Sleep Quantity
- Awakenings or arousals
- Sleep apnea
- Poor sleep and other sleep disorders
Cerebra’s Home Sleep Apnea Test (HSAT)
Home Sleep Apnea Tests are used to diagnose (or rule out) one disorder - uncomplicated sleep apnea, also known as sleep disordered breathing. Home Sleep Apnea Tests are conducted in the patient's own home.
Home Sleep Apnea devices typically have three respiratory channels: oximetry, respiratory effort and airflow, and they pick up heart rate as well as snoring. The monitor used in a Level III Home Sleep Apnea Tests is not able to measure actual sleep because it does not record brain waves, so while they are able to detect sleep disordered breathing, their accuracy in grading the severity of sleep apnea can be variable, and they cannot provide any insight into other sleep issues.
