Take a Sleep Apnoea Test at home

A home Sleep Apnoea test is a fast and affordable way to diagnose Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). Our WatchPAT diagnostic device is simple in its design and comfortable to wear. The information it collects gives our NHS-qualified sleep clinicians a thorough understanding of your sleep to confirm if Obstructive Sleep Apnoea is present.

The WatchPAT is worn overnight. It monitors your blood oxygen level, heart rate, body position, movements, snoring intensity, and Peripheral Arterial Tone, a key signal for possible breathing issues during sleep.

Fast: You will get your results within two working days, and if you purchase CPAP equipment with us, you can start your Sleep Apnoea treatment the next day.

Confidential: Your results are yours alone; Intus Healthcare has no obligation to inform any third party unless it is requested.

Convenient: You do not need to schedule time off work for an overnight stay, as you can complete the test from the comfort of your own bed.

Best Alternative to NHS Sleep Clinic: This device provides testing accuracy comparable to a sleep apnoea study in a hospital or sleep clinic. Choosing an home sleep study allows you to receive a Sleep Apnoea diagnosis without waiting for a sleep test through the NHS, minimising treatment delays.


Which test option is best for me?

The Rapid Sleep Apnoea test allows the WatchPAT device to automatically transmit data from your sleep study via the WatchPAT ONE mobile app (available to download from the App Store or Google Play). Click to watch our video guide for the Rapid Sleep Test.

If you don’t have a compatible smartphone, that’s no problem. You can order the standard test and post it back to us. You will expect results in a little longer than 2 working days due to posting the equipment back. Click to watch our video guide for the Standard Sleep Test.


How reliable are the results?

The WatchPAT device is the most clinically validated In-Home Sleep Test available. Its results correlate at 90% with the gold standard diagnostic tool (Polysomnography) used in a sleep clinic that requires an overnight stay.

No other At-Home Sleep Test approved by the main regulatory body, the AASM, can provide this level of accuracy. Our sleep clinicians are NHS-qualified and have at least five years of experience scoring sleep studies. They are also accredited by the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT).


What happens when I get my results?

Can anyone take an In-Home Sleep Apnoea Test?

Our In-Home Sleep Apnoea 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 will likely need to be overseen by a specialist, a level of care we cannot 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.

Acrylic nails, gel nails and nail polish will affect the accuracy of the test result. Before starting the test, remove nail coverings from the finger used by the pulse oximeter.

If you are suffering from a cold or feeling unwell, please wait to recover before taking the test.

What is the cancellation policy?

This is a service, and the service begins when your Sleep Test kit has been despatched. Unused tests can be returned, but the refund will be limited due to costs already incurred by Intus in the provision of the test, regardless of it not having been taken.

Is an In-Home Sleep Apnoea Test accurate?

An In-Home Sleep Apnoea Test is a convenient and effective way to diagnose Sleep Apnoea. 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 does the Standard Sleep Test work?

Using our Standard In-Home Sleep Test is easy and requires just one night of sleep. 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 specialists for analysis. You can learn more by watching this video.

Can I watch TV during a Home Sleep Study?

You can watch TV or other forms of entertainment before going to sleep. However, all transmitting devices, such as smart watches, smart phones etc should be turned off before attempting to start the test. Devices could interfere with the function of the test equipment.

What if I can't sleep during a Home Sleep Atudy?

It is not uncommon for people to have difficulty sleeping during a Sleep Study. The test only requires 4 hours of sleep to determine an accurate result. This doesn’t need to be 4 consecutive hours. It can be accumulated throughout the night.

Stick to your normal sleep routine as much as possible. Go to bed, wake up at the same times you normally do, and pick a night when you are not doing anything different. This will provide a true representation of your sleep.

Once activated, the equipment should not be removed until the morning.

What do my sleep study results mean?

Your results letter will include a copy of the data. It will also confirm the severity of the condition, should you have it, and advise the best treatment options. Watch this video to learn more.
