Get started with a self-assessment. Note your symptoms and use our tools to prescreen yourself for signs of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). If you think you may have a sleep problem, see your physician. Discuss your symptoms and scores with your physician.
Step 2: Get Tested
Your physician will determine if you need an overnight oximetry test or a home sleep test to diagnose your condition. Your test can be ordered by your physician through Vitalistics. The delivery of the testing equipment varies depending on which test is prescribed.
Step 3: Get Essential CPAP Therapy
If you are diagnosed with OSA, we will work with physicians and DME Suppliers to ensure that all of the requirements, which you need quickly, are met to assist in you receiving continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), the gold standard in OSA treatment.
Get Tested for Sleep Apnea: Great Days Start With a Good Night's Sleep
Do you feel like you are always tired or sleepy? Does your partner complain about your snoring? Do you wake up with morning headaches? Now’s the time to do something about it. Obstructive sleep apnea can have serious, potentially life-threatening implications.
Finding the cause of your symptoms is the first step and a simply in-home sleep test can help determine the cause. Let Vitalistics help you get tested for sleep apnea to determine if you need treatment!
Self-Screening for Symptoms — Get started by using the Berlin Questionnaire or Epworth Sleepiness Scale to do a self-screening for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). If you score high on these screenings or are still suspect that you may have OSA, you will need to schedule an appointment and discuss your symptoms with your physician. Print out the screening tools, complete them, and take them with you to your appointment so your physician can review them. It’s a good idea to also print out our physician’s order form and take it to your appointment as well.
Schedule an Appointment with Your Physician — During your visit, give your completed assessment tools to your primary care physician and discuss your symptoms. You should also discuss your testing options and if Home Sleep Testing (HST) is appropriate for your situation. If your physician wants to order a home sleep test, you may give him/her the order form you printed out and have him/her complete it. Your physician can also use their own order form if they choose. The order form will need to be faxed to Vitalistics™ so we can process your order. Our fax number is 844.550.9971.
Schedule Your Test — We will call you to schedule your test. Please be sure you have the following available for insurance verification and scheduling: your address; date of birth; current and accurate height and weight; and current insurance card(s) including Medicare and/or any secondary coverage you might have.
Complete Your Test — The testing device will be shipped to you via the U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail. To complete the test, simply follow the enclosed instructions. Once the test is complete, return the testing device to Vitalistics in the enclosed, prepaid shipping envelope. Vitalistics will send the interpreted test results to your physician as soon as it is available, typically 2-3 days of receipt.
