Portable Take Home Sleep Study
There are different types of sleep studies.

Home Sleep Test (HST)

This is the option offered at DOT Medical and Drug Testing Services. A Home Sleep Test is one in which the patient can take a device home, wear and record their sleep data in the comfort of their own home, bring back the device in the morning, upload the data from the device to the interpreting physician and expect a report back in 3 to 5 days. It is much more affordable and has the added benefit of convenience.

Please call 972-591-5931 with any questions.

Fees vary depending on company volume and tests required. We can perform DOT, NON – DOT collections, POCT Instant tests, hair testing, and breath alcohol, either on-site or in office.

The DoT has recommendations for screening drivers for OSA.

Patients with an AHI (Apnea Hypopnea Index) of >20, require management/treatment for their condition before being allowed to drive. Management of sleep apnea can be accomplished with positive airway pressure, essentially keeping the airways from collapsing at night. There are different types of devices. They are:

CPAP– Continuous Positive Airway Pressure – This device provides a constant pressure during inhalation/exhalation to ensure that the airways stay open.

​BiPAP– Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure – This device allows for different pressure settings on inspiration and exhalation. Some patients find this device to be easier to tolerate

APAP– Automatic Positive Airway Pressure – This device “automatically” senses what pressure is required to keep the airways open. It is changing throughout the sleep cycle to keep the airways open.
