Sleep Apnoea pre-diagnostic Screening Test for people who suspect they may be suffering from undiagnosed Sleep Apnoea. This test is NOT for people already on CPAP, as for accurate screening it would require not using CPAP for the test, which isn't recommended without the approval of your sleep doctor.
This SleepView Screener is a pre-diagnostic Sleep Apnoea Screening Test for adults who suspect they are sufferers of Sleep Apnoea. It will provide evidence for people as to whether they need to take further action in arranging a full Sleep Study, and/or for their GP's to refer them to a sleep clinic/hospital for an official diagnosis and treatment via the NHS. Apnoeas, hypopnoeas, low oxygen desaturations and pulse rate will be recorded but this test is not intended to identify the difference kinds of Sleep Apnoea, as below.
It is always advisable people are treated under the supervision of a registered sleep clinician, as there are different variations of Sleep Apnoea which often require more than just a straightforward CPAP machines for good therapy:-
Also, other underlying health conditions can often determine which type of machine people require, which is another reason to be treated by a qualified registered sleep clinican! (An an example, Kath Hope of Hope2Sleep was started on CPAP, moved to APAP followed by ASV (Adaptive Servo Ventilation) and is now currently on VPAP, so she is very grateful for being under good care by the NHS).
For people who only wish to check on oxygen desaturations please see the alternative screening test hire which is suitable for people already using CPAP.
This particular test is more accurate for detecting Sleep Apnoea than just a Pulse Oximetry test alone, due to it measuring nasal and mouth breathing, as using pulse oximetry alone as a pre-diagnosis is not always accurate, due to the fact that oxygen desaturations can also happen for other reasons. Also, not all apnoeas/hypopneas cause oxygen desaturations as often the body fights hard to keep oxygen levels maintained.
The device is sent out on loan for one night's use, and you are paying for the hire of the equipment, the subsequent data to be downloaded and the report compiled and issued with recommendations for your next action to be taken. You can see a brief sample of Page 1 of the report below:-
Due to the fact this sleep screening test is very popular, you may have to wait in a queue for the equipment to be sent, but we will keep you informed of this. We are currently raising funds for more equipment so please be patient.
I first saw my local GP just over 2 years ago as I was having trouble falling to sleep and staying asleep. It took me ages to nod off and when I did I was awake 45 mins later. Awake for another hour then back to sleep for another 45 mins. This pattern repeated thoughtout the night until I got up in the morning. My GP's answer was Zopiclone (I have taken so many over the past year I feel as if I am keeping the Company in business). I have begged my GP for a referral to a sleep cinic but he has point blankly refused. He said there is nothing wrong with you, Marget Thatcher only use to have 4 hours sleep a night. In January this year a dentist told me about Hope2Sleep. I contacted Kath Hope and was put on the list for a sleep study test device which I received in a very short waiting time. I must admit that I made a mess of the first recording due to fact that my house was broken into two nights before I did the test. Still Kath went that extra mile to help me out and offered very sound advice which I took onboard. (If you are still awake I will continue). My test results came back and I presented them to my GP the same day. FOUR days later I received confirmation that I now have an appointment to see a sleep specialist privately, as there is a six month waiting list with the local NHS sleep clinic (yes I have to pay but after spending nearly two years on less than 4 hours of interrupted sleep each night it has to be worth it). I have also discovered Zopiclone isn't recommended with untreated sleep apnoea and after a few real bad days (cold turkey) I came off it, seeing as I now know it was the sleep apnoea disturbing me and not insomnia! It has just gone 1am in the morning and although I am really tired I cannot go to sleep. I am really looking forward to my referral to the sleep specialist in two weeks time. Only regrets now is, I should have changed GP's two years ago and I wish that I had known about Hope2Sleep two years ago. Thank you Kath Hope and all at Hope2Sleep (and I Hope2Sleep in the very near future). Good night and sleep well. Yours Malcolm.

I had no idea that I may have sleep Apnea. I thought I was developing insommnia. I kept waking up through the night, for no reason. I was sesrching through the internet to find ideas that may keep me asleep. After trying a few things without success, I kept searching. Sleep Apnea came up and I looked at a few sites for more information.I had already asked my doctor, "could I possibly have sleep apnea". He bluntly told me I didnt have that, but I said, its possible to hire a small machine that would record my sleep at home, which might give me some idea if I have it. I found Hope2sleep site and decided to hire their home sleep device for 3 nights. I did this in the new year, and waited approx 4 weeks before I received the device, as others were in front of me. The device comes with full instructions, and easy to work out what goes where. I thought it would be uncomfortable, but it wasnt a problem at all. After using it for 3 nights, I returned the device promptly, as others were waiting to hire it. I received my results a few days later, and was very surprised to learn I have severe sleep apnea on all three night. I now have the evidence to show my GP. Many thanks to Hope2sleep
As a sufferer myself, I purchased this screening test to confirm if a relative's tiredness and disturbed sleep may also be due to OSA. I would recommend buying a 2 night assessment to make sure the data is relevant, as the user woke repeatedly on night 1 due to the nasal cannula. A combination of high demand over the festive period and several public holidays meant the kit was delayed in arriving - but because of this we received the very latest device not available for online order at the time.The sleep report arrived by email a few days after the equipment was returned. By now I'm quite used to the various graphs and statistics but a new user may find them a bit bewildering. However, the summary conclusion of whether the results warrant further investigation is made clear.I would definitely recommend trying this as a first step if you suspect OSA, as it should make getting a GP referral much easier.
Thanks for your review and patience James. Thankfully we have now raised much-needed funding with gratitude from our supporters so there's not such a huge delay now ☺
Thank you so much for every thing you have done to help me. The sleep test device you sent was so easy-to-use, and the help that you give will change lives for the better!
Found this a very easy to use test for sleep apnea and a great price. Had results back within 2 days of returning. Which was about 3 weeks quicker than local sleep clinic

Quick delivery and turnaround and comprehensive report, giving an overview of what may be occurring whilst you sleep. Kath is so supportive, giving leads to helpful avenues of information. Thank you so much
I was pleased to find a site offering an affordable way to check whether I really was suffering from sleep apnea as my Dr wanted to send me for tests but I was sure he was wrong and I just wanted him to give me pills to fix my problems. I went back to him and told him I was sorry for doubting him. He smiled and has now referred me to hospital so I hope I don't have long to wait now. Sincerely appreciate how quickly you sent me the results

I am so grateful to you for the inexpensive way of finding out I am suffering from severe sleep apnea. My doctor kept insisting I did not need testing but he changed his mind when I showed him the report you sent me. I am waiting for an urgent cancellation to get a cpap as the hospital say I need to have one soon and said it could be within the next few days so I will probably be back for some of your goods. Thank you so much.
Cheers for such a good quick service though the wife wasn't too impressed to find out I was right + it prompted her to go to the doc. She's only had her CPAP for the past 10 days but is already feeling better in herself, + so am I because there's no snoring in the bedroom now! She sends her thanks too.
