Pulse Oximetry Testing Instructions:

A pulse oximeter is a versatile, portable and non-invasive medical instrument that measures the oxygen saturation in the blood. It’s easy to use. The modern pulse oximeter contains a pair of small, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) placed on the fingertip. Download our complete pulse oximetry testing patient instructions.

Home Sleep Study Testing Instructions:

A home sleep study is an easy-to-perform, non-invasive diagnostic procedure that records a patient’s airflow and chest movement when breathing, records pulse rate, and measures the level of oxygen in the blood. The test can determine whether breathing temporarily stops during sleep, a condition known as sleep apnea.
