Obstructive Sleep Apnoea - Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Therapy - Diagnosis

It is best to see a sleep specialist to confirm the diagnosis. In the initial consultation, a thorough sleep history will be taken to assess for OSA. If OSA is suspected, an overnight sleep study is recommended to confirm the diagnosis of OSA.

What is a sleep study?

A sleep study or polysomnogram (PSG) is an overnight noninvasive diagnostic test done in a Sleep Laboratory. The PSG monitors the different stages of sleep, heart rhythm, muscle activity, breathing effort and oxygen levels during sleep. The severity of OSA can also be determined.
