Sleep Apnea testing is only done with a physician's prescription. An ambulatory sleep monitor is taken home after instruction and assessment is completed by a Registered Respiratory Therapist. The sleep monitor records pulse rate, blood oxygen levels, air flow, snoring and other information necessary for the pulmonologist or internist to read the data.

With a physician prescription, Breatheasy will provide a two to three week trial of CPAP therapy with close follow-up and titration as well as repeat testing if necessary. CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. A CPAP machine creates a positive airflow that will splint open a collapsed airway thereby correcting obstructive sleep apnea.
