Home Sleep Testing | Sleep Medicine - Malvern, PA
Although sleep tests conducted in labs can provide thorough, accurate insights into breathing disorders and other sleep behavior, they can also be costly, time-consuming and tricky to work into busy schedules. The office of Dr. Brian Abaluck is pleased to offer patients home sleep tests that they can do independently of a doctor in the comfort of their own home. Learn more about how to get started with our convenient pick-up/drop-off home sleep testing below.
We offer pick-up and drop-off home sleep testing kits for the convenience of our patients to test for OSA. Find out how to get started! Schedule an appointment with our sleep specialists today!

How Does Home Sleep Testing Work?
Our current home sleep testing process is simple. Once you arrive at our office, pop the trunk of your car so that we may drop the device inside. When you return home, a member of our staff will call you to have a video chat session and show you how to set up the home sleep testing device. Return to our office the next day, pop your trunk, and we will take the device back.
