Home sleep test reports are uploaded to the patient test file online once the report has been interpreted by a board certified sleep physician.
We provide a one page summary report that consists of the qualification status, oxygen saturation, and a test overview. We also provide a more detailed report for further review. This includes graphs of desaturation events, a detailed chart, and a SpO2 histogram. See sample reports here.
