Sleep Apnoea Testing

At Sleep Apnoea NQ, we offer comprehensive sleep apnoea testing services to accurately diagnose and treat this common sleep disorder. Our home-based diagnostic PSG (polysomnography) sleep study device allows you to undergo testing comfortably in the familiar environment of your own bed. And the great news is we can NOW fit your device over a singlet, making the process even less invasive and more convenient than ever before. Here’s what you can expect from our testing process:

  1. Comfortable Setup: After obtaining a sleep test referral from your GP our trained Sleep Technicians will set up the sleep testing equipment on you at our clinic, ensuring a seamless and comfortable experience for you.
  2. Home-Based Testing: After setup, you’ll take the equipment home and wear it overnight while you sleep. The device, though it may appear intricate, is designed to be non-restrictive, allowing you to move freely.
  3. Next Morning: The next morning, simply return the equipment to our clinic. The testing process requires a 30-minute appointment and is available at an out-of-pocket cost of $100.00. For Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) members, the sleep test is free of charge.
  4. Preparation Tips: Before your appointment, remember to bring along your Medicare card, and any other health benefit cards. Additionally, wear a singlet and button up shirt and shower beforehand, as you won’t be able to shower while wearing the equipment
  5. Post-Sleep Study Questionnaire: Upon waking up, remove the sleep study equipment and fill out our brief questionnaire. Your results will be carefully reviewed by our specialist sleep physician, with results expected in approximately 2-3 weeks. A results appointment will be booked with you to discuss possible treatment options
