Hope2Sleep

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.

 


Due to the fact this sleep screening test is very popular, sometimes there is a delay before we can send a device out, but you will be informed via email when it has been sent with a tracking number provided.

Please note that our charity have been fortunate in raising funding for new equipment, so you will be sent the upgraded model (PolyWatch) to that shown  in the images.  The website will be updated soon.

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:-   

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnoea which is caused through obstructions when the airways relax.
  • Central Sleep Apnoea which is when the brain fails to send messages to breathe.
  • Mixed or Complex Sleep Apnoea (which is a mixture of both Obstructive and Central Sleep Apnoea).

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).  Therefore, it is not our charity's recommendation that people undertake online sleep studies and purchase machines.  It should also be noted that CPAP machines require prescribing by a qualified sleep clinician.

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.

 

  SleepView Sleep Apnoea Testing Device  

 

The SleepView device is worn on the wrist and a finger probe is attached to check for oxygen desaturations and pulse rate. 

A respiratory nasal/oral cannula is also worn which measures breathing (capturing if breathing stops or partially stops during sleep, known as apnoeas and hypopnoeas).

It also stores snoring statistics.

 

 

 

 

 

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:-

IMPORTANT

Due to the fact this sleep screening test is very popular, sometimes there is a delay before we can send a device out, but you will be informed via email when it has been sent with a tracking number provided.

  • This Sleep Screening Test is for Adults only.
  • You DO NOT need a prescription for this test.
  • The results of the test are confidential, and shall not be shared with anybody else.
  • This particular test is NOT recommended for people already on CPAP as it would require coming off the treatment, which should only be done under guidance of your sleep clinicians. 
  • You can hire the equipment for extra nights with separate reports created, but this should not be necessary if you are already aware you are struggling to breathe most nights.  Do bear in mind though, that separate nights recordings would rarely show up the same results, as Sleep Apnoea varies from night to night, depending on medications taken, certain foods eaten, alcohol consumption, body temperature, allergies, and nasal stuffiness etc.
  • Please ensure you use and then return our device promptly, as this slows down the process and is unfair on those waiting.
  • You are paying for the loan of the equipment only, and the subsequent reports which will be sent to you, and it must be returned to us via the stamped-addressed recorded delivery packaging provided.  Failure to send back the kit promptly may incur extra charges before the results are sent! 
  • We do not ship this item out of the United Kingdom.
  • It is always advisable to ensure you are treated under the supervision of a registered sleep doctor for your Sleep Apnoea!
  • As stated previously, this is a pre-diagnostic screening test and for any signs of sleep apnoea you will be advised to seek a referral from your local sleep clinic for further investigations.  Whilst several members of our charity's trustee and medical board are qualified to diagnose, our intention is that you be seen face-to-face wherever possible by a sleep qualified doctor.

Bought this to allay my wife's fears. But the results came as a shock - severe apnoea. She was right I stopped breathing several times and now off to sleep clinic. General info on site also very useful and I now feel prepared and have questions to ask at my hospital appointment.

Worthwhile test
Monday, 24 June 2019  | 

Well worth trying. I wasnít sure if it was and took a few months to decide. I should have experimented earlier. I took the results to the GP. They were a little surprised, but was happy to refer when I mentioned the outcome.
Three nights may not have been necessary, but wasnít sure how Iíd sleep. You get used to it quite quickly.

If you have even a slight concern - do this test!!
Saturday, 29 December 2018  | 

My sister was visiting from Oz and we were talking about her recent diagnosis for sleep apnea. My daughter suggested I needed it checked too. I had already spoken to my doctor but he just suggested I lose weight!

I ordered the sleep test for two nights! The device is so simple to use. The instructions are easy to follow and I was able to sleep with it. I chose the two night option, as I wanted to be very sure of the results.

Just got my results and I will now be going back to my doctor with the results in hand - as I most definitely have a problem!

I can HIGHLY recommend this service. I will be interested to see what my GP has to say! But I now feel fully armed to get something done!

So if you are concerned - order this service. It will either ease your concern or arm you with evidence!

Glad to have helped you Jeanette and interesting about your sister's diagnosis and sleep apnoea definitely runs in families. Furthermore, untreated sleep apnoea can actually cause/excacerbate weight gain and when people are put on treatment for the sleep apnoea they find it much easier to lose weight. Good Luck!

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase.  On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called  'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!

Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.

If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges incurred.

Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but the purchaser is to pay the return postage, and we would advise retaining proof of postage.  This excludes any faulty goods, for which postage will be reimbursed.  A full refund for the price of the product will be issued when received by us, less the original postage charges when the order was sent to you.
