HST, or home sleep testing, is performed exactly as it sounds. The sleep test is worn at home while you sleep and provides information on your breathing while you are sleeping. HST is essential in the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea and the equipment can commonly be set up on your own.
If left untreated, OSA can be associated with diabetes and other medical problems.
OSA, or Obstructive Sleep Apnea, arises when the muscles in your throat relax and cause the airway to collapses while you’re sleeping. This means that air cannot get into the lungs and thus the level of oxygen in your blood decreases.
