Take a Sleep Apnoea test at home

If you suspect that you have Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), then an In-Home sleep study provides a quick, convenient, and affordable way to have it confirmed. All treatment options for Sleep Apnoea require a test to have been taken. This service provides a quick, convenient way of having your sleep assessed by a qualified sleep professional.

Our Detailed In-Home Sleep Test uses the revolutionary WatchPAT diagnostic. The device provides accuracy comparable to PSG (used in sleep laboratories for in-depth sleep analysis) but can be used easily and comfortably in the comfort of your own bed. The WatchPat device monitors your blood oxygen levels, heart rate, body position, body movements, snoring intensity, and, crucially, your Peripheral Arterial Tone – a key physiological signal that can indicate respiratory disturbances during sleep.

Despite being simple to use and comfortable to wear, the information it records gives our sleep technicians a comprehensive picture of your sleep, allowing them to accurately determine if OSA is present.

IMPORTANT: This test is intended to assess the presence (or not) of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea only. It will not provide confirmation (positive or negative) of any other sleep conditions. If you are looking for a general sleep assessment for any other sleep disorder, we would recommend discussing this with your GP or a private sleep clinic, such as the London Sleep Centre. However, if you suspect that your sleep problems are caused by Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, then this service is intended for you.


Which test option is best for me?

We offer two home Sleep Studies – Rapid and Standard. Both are the same in terms of price and accuracy; the Rapid tests provide results one to three days earlier than the Standard version because the data is transferred to us via your SmartPhone rather than having to wait for the device to be posted back.

Before ordering the Rapid test, please ensure you have a compatible Apple or Android smart device. You can find the WatchPat One app on the Apple App Store or Google Play for Android on your smart device. If you don’t have a compatible smart device, no problem – you can order the standard test. You will still have your results within two weeks as it is typically just one or two working days slower than the Rapid test.


Why choose a home sleep study?

It is estimated that up to 13% of men and 6% of women in the UK have OSA. That is around 5.5 million people. Only a fraction of these have had a sleep study conducted. A home Sleep Apnoea test solves many of the issues that prevent people from pursuing a test through the NHS.

Speed – Get your equipment the next working day, and your results typically within one week of returning it.

Confidentiality – Your results are yours alone; Intus Healthcare has no obligation to inform any third party.

Convenience – Sleep in your bed at a time to suit you. No need to book time off work for an appointment or overnight stay.

Fast result – You will receive a full report to determine if you have Sleep Apnoea in as little as ten days.

How reliable are the results?

The WatchPAT device used for our Detailed Sleep Test is the most clinically validated home sleep test available. It has been shown to have results that correlate at 90% with Polysomnography – the “Gold standard” OSA diagnostic that requires an overnight stay in a clinic. No other home sleep study approved by the main regulatory body, the AASM, can provide this level of accuracy.

The data is analysed alongside a medical questionnaire you will complete. The analysis is conducted by an independent sleep technician; they are paid a set fee per test regardless of the outcome – they are not incentivised to provide a positive result. All our sleep technicians are NHS-trained, have at least five years’ experience in scoring sleep studies, and are Accredited by the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT).

Intus Healthcare is a member of both the ARTP and the BSS professional bodies.

In summary, we are trusted to provide a professional, reliable, and accurate service and have been doing so for over ten years.


What happens when I get my results?

If positive, your detailed results letter will provide recommendations for treatment. However, the typical options (assuming OSA is confirmed) are:

Treatment – After completing your sleep study at home, you can purchase equipment to begin treatment (providing no other health conditions would preclude that). The options available will depend on the severity and your medical history and will be clearly explained. At Intus Healthcare, we have one of Europe’s largest ranges of OSA treatment options and with over ten years of experience, we can accurately advise you about the most suitable treatment option and the equipment within that. You may also be able to use the result to help your GP refer you to a sleep clinic. The clinic may then issue equipment for treatment, but in most cases, they will require their own sleep test to be conducted.

Further investigation – Should you feel the need for further investigation after you have completed a sleep study at home, then you can discuss your results with your GP. They may refer you to a sleep clinic, which will determine what investigation is required. Please note that a referral based on your result from us is not guaranteed, but demonstrating evidence of a sleep disorder should make your GP’s decision to refer more straightforward. In some cases, further investigation may be essential should health issues beyond “just” Sleep Apnoea be suspected.

Peace of mind – If you are concerned that you may have OSA, then a negative result will give you peace of mind. The WatchPAT device’s false negative rate is close to 0%. Therefore, should you continue to experience sleep problems, you have at least ruled out one potential cause. Similarly, if you are a heavy snorer, you can relax knowing there is nothing more seriously wrong.


Can anyone take a home Sleep Test?

Our In-Home Sleep Test services are only available to people aged 18 or over. We also recommend not taking this test if your BMI is 45 or above. This is because any treatment is very likely to need to be overseen by a specialist, which is a level of care we are unable to provide. In this instance, we recommend discussing your sleep symptoms with your GP at your earliest convenience.

If you are an existing CPAP user, it is advised to pause using your therapy for five days before taking a sleep test.


Need further information?

Should you need any further information, then please contact Us, and one of the team will be able to answer any questions you have.

Otherwise, you can place your order at the top of the page or by calling free on 0800 024 8050. Within two weeks, you could have the result that allows you to begin treatment and start sleeping properly again.



Please note, this is a service, and once your kit has been despatched the order cannot be cancelled as the service will have begun. Unused tests can be returned, but the refund will be limited to a maximum of £160 due to costs already incurred by Intus in the provision of the test, regardless of it not having been taken.

Is at home sleep test accurate?

Home sleep tests can be a convenient and effective way to diagnose sleep disorders, but not all services are as accurate as an in-laboratory sleep study. In-laboratory sleep studies involve a comprehensive evaluation of sleep, including monitoring of brain activity, eye movements, and muscle activity, as well as measurements of breathing and oxygen levels.

However, at Intus Healthcare, our pioneering In-Home Sleep Test uses the revolutionary WatchPAT diagnostic that provides accuracy comparable to PSG (used in sleep laboratories for in-depth sleep analysis).

The WatchPat device monitors your blood oxygen levels, heart rate, body position, body movements, snoring intensity, and, crucially, your Peripheral Arterial Tone – a key physiological signal that can indicate respiratory disturbances during sleep.

How do I take the standard test?

Using our Standard In-Home Sleep Test is easy and takes just one night to complete. Included with your test is a set of instructions, and you will also receive an email with helpful guidance. After testing, you must complete the online medical questionnaire and consent forms and use the prepaid returns bag to return the device to us. Once we get the device back, we’ll upload your data and pass it to one of our sleep clinicians to review and report on. You can learn more about this by watching our video below.

Can I watch TV during a home sleep study?

During a home sleep study, you may watch TV or other forms of entertainment before going to sleep, as long as it does not disturb your sleep or the function of the testing equipment. However, it is generally recommended to avoid screens (such as TVs, phones, and computers) before going to sleep, as the blue light emitted by these devices can disrupt your natural sleep-wake cycle and make it harder to fall asleep.

If you do choose to watch TV or use other screens before bed, it is best to use them in a dimly lit room and to give yourself plenty of time to wind down before attempting to sleep.

What if I can't sleep during a home sleep study?

It is not uncommon for people to have difficulty sleeping during a sleep study at home, especially if they are not used to sleeping with equipment attached to their bodies. If you are having difficulty conducting your test, there are a few things you can try to help you relax and fall asleep:

  1. Stick to your normal sleep routine as much as possible. Go to bed and wake up at the same times you normally do, and try to relax before bed by reading or listening to soothing music.
  2. Make your sleep environment comfortable. Keep the room at a comfortable temperature, use a comfortable pillow and mattress, and block out any excess light or noise.
  3. Practice relaxation techniques. Try taking slow, deep breaths, visualizing a peaceful scene, or using progressive muscle relaxation to help you relax and fall asleep.
  4. Avoid caffeine and alcohol before bedtime. These substances can interfere with your sleep and make it harder to fall asleep.

If you continue to have difficulty, please get in touch with us, and we may be able to offer you additional tips and advice.
