Winter says the test's six measurements can help diagnose sleep apnea without doing the full study.
"Anytime you feel like the characteristics of a traditional sleep apnea patient are being met already, this is a great way to solidify the diagnosis and move forward with some sort of therapy," said Winter. "We just have to be trusted as practitioners to know when it's appropriate and when it's not."
Winter says the home kit is not a substitute but is a great alternative for patients who are nervous about the overnight stay at the Sleep Medicine Center.
