State of the Art Sleep Testing
Accurate Sleep Studies, At Home And In The Lab.
Sleep testing is the main tool that we use to diagnose the major sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, narcolepsy, hyperventilation of sleep, and limb movement disorders. OmniSleep uses advanced diagnostic equipment and software to detect sleep disorders accurately. Click to read the Overnight Sleep Study Guide
All sleep study interpretations and reports are performed by our board certified / board eligible sleep physicians. All of our sleep technologists are highly trained and are permitted and licensed to practice polysomnography (sleep testing) by the State of New Mexico.

Home Sleep Apnea Test
OmniSleep uses the Home Sleep Apnea Test (HSAT) as its primary sleep test for medically appropriate patients.
HSAT uses advanced equipment to allow patients to be tested in their home. Medicare recognizes the HSAT as a valid test to diagnose Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
The HSAT also allows providers to test patients that cannot visit our Sleep Medicine Centers for a lab sleep study.
Diagnostic Sleep Study
A diagnostic sleep study, or polysomnography (PSG), is an in-lab sleep test that is the gold standard test to diagnose sleep disorders. OmniSleep uses the PSG to identify Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), Central Sleep Apnea (CSA), and Periodic Limb Movement of Sleep (PLMS). Sleep studies are not utilized in insomnia cases.
A sleep study requires an overnight stay in our comfortable sleep medicine center which typically occur from 8:30pm to 6:30am the next day. Friendly and specially trained sleep technologists administer these tests while the patient sleeps.
Our studies utilize high tech sleep recorders to monitor numerous bio-signals of each patient. This involves applying numerous sensors to sites on the body. The entire procedure is non-invasive and totally safe.
Treatment Sleep Study
Treatment sleep studies are designed to treat diagnosed respiratory disorders of sleep like sleep apnea and hypoventilation during sleep.
They are identical to a diagnostic sleep study but while while the patient sleeps, they are also placed on nasal CPAP / BiPAP therapy and sometimes supplemental oxygen to treat their disorders. The “PAP” in CPAP and BiPAP stand for “positive airway pressure.” These devices essentially inflate the large or small airways to ensure that the patient can breathe normally during sleep.
During these studies, our sleep technologists use real-time data from our sleep recorders, such as breathing airflow and oximetry to adjust CPAP, BiPAP, and/or oxygen settings to treat the breathing disorder.
After the study, our sleep specialists determine the most effective settings and the patient’s tolerance for CPAP or BiPAP, including these recommendations in the interpretation report.
