We have a very important question for you. Right now. Right in this very moment: how jolly are you feeling? Are you bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and raring to ring in Auld Lang Syne? Bursting with so much energy, you simply cannot wait for more family feasts, chats with curious cousins, shopping and wrapping and shopping wrapping and…? If so, then we raise our glass of cheer to you and only ask that one day you share some of your secrets with the rest of the class!
If, however, you are feeling more sloggy than jolly, we get it. In fact, according to SleepApnea.org, an estimated 22 million Americans suffer from Sleep Apnea. So, a lot of us get it. But the good news is that we have streamlined the entire sleep apnea diagnosis process thanks to the massive strides in at-home sleep test technology.
Read on to see how easy it is to (finally) give yourself the gift of sleep this year.
What is an At-Home Sleep Test?
Back when grandpa walked to school uphill both ways, a sleep test—or sleep study—required an overnight stay in a sleep lab, with the patient (you) hooked up to a bajillion wires while nurses monitored your sleep. As I’m sure you can imagine, many folks found it difficult to actually sleep under these circumstances, which required, yep, even more laboratory sleepovers.
Today, though, with the WatchPAT ONE, we are able to utilize everyday items like your smartphone and The Cloud to monitor every single metric we need in order to diagnose sleep apnea after just one night of sleeping in your own bed. And the icing on this cake is that the whole unit is disposable so you don’t have to send anything back to us!

Do I Need an At-Home Sleep Test?
While certainly not everyone caught yawning in a meeting needs an at-home sleep test, an estimated 50-70 million US adults have a sleep disorder according to the American Sleep Association.
Here are some signs that you may need an at-home sleep test:
- You often wake up with a headache
- You wake up thirsty and/or with a dry mouth throughout the night
- You have excessive daytime sleepiness
- You have been told you snore
- You have awoken gasping for breath
- You are a man with a neck circumference of 17 inches or more
- You are a woman with a neck circumference of 16 inches or more
- You are obese
- You often take an afternoon nap
- You laugh at sleep memes
How Much Does an At-Home Sleep Test Cost?
In the spirit of our motto, “Simplify Your Sleep,” we offer the WatchPAT ONE disposable at-home sleep test for $199. If you don’t test positive for sleep apnea: YAY! But if you do, we will cover the cost of your CPAP Prescription with the purchase of your first CPAP machine.
