Yes. Our equipment is able to capture the data needed to differentiate between the two.

No Prescription is necessary for the home sleep testing but one would be recommended if you are seeking reimbursement from your insurance provider. We always recommend consulting with your Physician to review symptoms and determine need.
How long do I have to wear the device?
One night of testing is the normal for recording data needed. You would place it on at bedtime and remove in the morning when you get up.
