Signs you may have sleep apnea:
- Daytime Fatigue/Daytime Sleepiness
- Falling sleep while driving
- Memory Loss and Difficulty Concentrating (Fog)
- Moodiness and Irritability
- Type 2 Diabetes
- High Blood Pressure
- Morning Headaches
If you have any of these, it is likely that you have sleep apnea. Typically this is tested in an unfamiliar sleep center, in an unfamiliar bed, with a restroom used by other patients and staff. The room temperature is out of your control as are sounds that come from other patients and staff. Many patients feel that their sleep lab experience isn’t an accurate picture of their sleep at home.
Without an accurate diagnosis: You risk being treated for a sleep disorder that you may not have, or not being treated for a sleep disorder that you DO have. We are the only service to offer a comprehensive analysis of your sleep.
This is a service for a home sleep diagnostic testing and test result interpretation by a Sleep Specialist. This is a FULL LAB QUALITY Sleep Study (Unattended Polysomnography) in the comfort of your own home. Scoring by an RPSGT and Interpretation by a Board Certified Sleep Specialist is included (typically hundreds of dollars more).
This test can be used as:
- a diagnostic sleep study to test for sleep disorders such as sleep apnea.
- to test the effectiveness of any oral appliance you have for treating snoring and sleep apnea.
- test the effectiveness of any surgical procedures you have had for the treatment of sleep apnea such as a mandibular advancement surgery, UPPP, or LAUP.

With AXG Sleep Diagnostics, you get the accuracy, quality, and reliability of a sleep study in a lab, but with the affordability and convenience of a Home Sleep Test. Other home sleep tests use guesswork and computer scoring. Guesswork simply isn’t good enough when your health is concerned. We measure ALL the same parameters that are measured in a typical in lab sleep study. Untreated apnea can cause long term consequences such as:
- Congestive Heart Failure
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Lowered Libido
- Poor Quality of Life.
This test records and measures one night of:
- EEG: 5 channel (Sleep Stages): Know exactly how much Stage N1, Stage N2, Delta (Slow Wave Sleep) and REM sleep you’re getting.
- EKG: 3 channel EKG. Know your heart rhythm, SPO2 levels, and pulse rate during sleep.
- EOG: 2 channnel. Eye movements recorded. These are important in recording sleep stages.
- Airflow and Respiratory belts (3 channel): Know if you’re having some kind of sleep disordered breathing.
- Chin EMG (2 channel): Know if you have a condition called Bruxism (teeth grinding) during sleep.
- Manual scoring (Never Auto-scored) by our Licensed and Boarded RPSGT/RST. We also score RERAs so you have the most accurate diagnosis possible. What is a RERA?
- Interpretation by our Medical Director who is Board Certified in Sleep Medicine, Pulmonology, Internal Medicine, and Critical Care Medicine.
- View our detailed sample report: HomePSGSampleReport
- We even score and actively look for RERAs which are reflected on our report. (Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome, or UARS)
Note: Payment due prior to service. An itemized insurance compliant claim form will be provided to you. We will arrange to have you come into our office to have electrodes attached by a Registered Polysomnographic Technologist for your sleep study only if you live in the Sacramento Area. Otherwise, you will have to attach the electrodes yourself. We provide clear, easy to follow instructions as well as a video.
Questions? Don’t hesitate to contact us! 916-996-0131 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Worried you won’t be able to attach the electrodes? This video is for fun, but also shows the process a little more in depth. The real video and instructions are much more detailed. It takes most people about 10 minutes with no prior experience. Many people are already doing this in their own homes and saving money while having a high quality sleep study in the comfort of their own home. It’s a very straightforward process.
Put on belts
Place Test Module on belt.
Place Nasal Cannula in your nose
Put on finger probe.
(This is where most home sleep studies stop offering very little useful data.)
Scrub 12 sites on your legs, chest, and face with alcohol wipes.
Place self adhesive electrodes on those 16 sites. Literally like placing a sticker.
Plug these wires into the Test Module using our easy to follow video and written instructions.
Sleep! This couldn’t be easier.
These extra electrodes make all the difference in obtaining an accurate evaluation of your sleep. Without an accurate diagnosis, you risk being treated for a sleep disorder that you may not have, or not being treated for a sleep disorder that you DO have.
