NovaSom’s Home Sleep Test
A NovaSom Home Sleep Test (HST) is a convenient alternative to Sleep Center testing that can be performed in the comfort and privacy of a patient’s home, at a fraction of the cost of a Sleep Center study.
With the NovaSom HST, the patient sleeps comfortably in his or her own bed, and measures the parameters recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) for diagnosing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
These parameters are measured with three sensors:
These three sensors allow the patient to sleep in the position that is most comfortable ang get up during the night as necessary.
NovaSom's HST is FDA- approved for uncomplicated adult OSA. Its accuracy, compared to in-facility testing, has been validated in two separate clinical studies. Additionally, it provides a representative night's sleep that is overwhelmingly preferred by patients. Read the research here. Importantly, once ordered, there are no waiting lists and patients receive the diagnosis and treatment they need within days.
NovaSom HST Technology
NovaSom completes a Home Sleep Test with one of 2 devices, the first generation NovaSom QSG device, or the Second-generation, AccuSom -- the first FDA-approved wireless device. Both devices are CMS Type III, cardio-respiratory monitors.
The NovaSom QSG consists of a bedside unit which is connected to a small patient module, worn on the patient’s wrist. The breath, chest, and finger sensor connect to the patient module. The second generation AccuSom device simply consists of a patient module, worn on the arm, and the 3 sensors. Set-up for both devices is simple and both devices use voice prompts to walk the patient through this process. The AccuSom voice prompts can be programmed in multiple languages.
