Tip Tuesday: A Deep Dive into Home Sleep Tests Part 4

Home Sleep Tests:
A Deep Dive Part IV

Tips and Tricks from Dr. Sahil Chopra

How to have a conversation with a patient about their sleep test results

  • Reassure them that OSA is treatable.
  • Remind them that therapy for a sleep disorder will be personalized to their preference (and make sure to do so).
  • Remember to look for degradation between normal and abnormal on the form based on color (green, yellow, or red).

3 reasons why it’s important to do multinight testing

  1. It allows the patient to experiment with what they think helps them sleep better at night.
  2. It gives a better picture of what a patient’s sleep is really like by showing multiple time points.
  3. It helps a patient realize that results are not a fluke and accept the fact that there’s an issue with their sleep.
