Overnight Level 3 Home Sleep Study - $120
If you score more than 8 on the Epworth Sleepiness Scale and 3 (females) or 4 (males) on the Stop Bang questionnaire (STOP) you should book an overnight sleep study. We also highly recommend an overnight sleep study if you are observed gasping for breath at night during sleep.

The Alice Night One Sleep Kit is worn overnight and measures sleeping position, chest exertion, heart rate, oxygen saturation in the blood and air flow. We show you how to fit the testing kit in the pharmacy and then you take the sleep testing unit home to wear at bedtime. The results from your overnight sleep study are downloaded then assessed by Sleep Physician Dr Donald Lee and his team at Nepean Lung and Sleep in Sydney, Australia http://nepeanlungandsleep.com.au/ who will determine if you have obstructive sleep apnoea and grade its severity. We will provide you with a comprehensive report from the Doctor with recommendations.
Sleep Apnoea Treatment Trial - $250
Should our sleep physician recommend a trial with a Continuous Positive Airway Treatment machine (CPAP) we will provide you with a Philips Deamstation machine (complete with humidifier) for a 4 week trial, fully train you on its use, and monitor via the cloud how effective it is, including assessment of mask leakage and reduction of sleep apnoea events. In that period we will assess and provide the most appropriate mask and swap to a different mask if needed at no extra charge during the trial period if that is needed. We will contact you each week to monitor your progress.
