If you’re experiencing symptoms of a sleep breathing disorder, your doctor will work closely with you to determine the underlying causes of your symptoms and help you understand the options available for treatment. They use advanced high-resolution pulse oximeters to monitor your heart rate and the oxygen levels in your blood over the course of one or several nights, studying your sleep habits and the patterns of any interruption. This work requires careful, close study, so they rely on the most advanced and well-calibrated equipment available.
If your symptoms are related to a sleep breathing disorder, your doctor will likely send you home with a high-resolution pulse oximeter, which you’ll wear overnight. These devices are small and comfortable and shouldn’t interfere with your normal sleep routine.
