News
  1. -03-21-08 Sleep Apnea Home Test Now Available (US News)
      "Overnight sleep tests in a lab, or polysomnography, generally collect 12 "channels" of information, including blood oxygen levels, nasal and oral airflow, and electrical information. A home test need only include three such channels of information. You might wear monitors while you sleep that measure airflow and breathing patterns, for example, and a gadget on your fingertip that indicates the level of oxygen in your blood. And sleep specialists have experience finding the meaning in sleep study data. Now, people who test at home might well take the results to their own physician." 03-08

  1. Air Travel with a CPAP Machine (CPAP-Supply.com)
      "I've never actually seen anyone using a CPAP machine on an airplane - not even on relatively long flights - but I know many airlines allow it. I also know that according to the Transportation Security Administration a CPAP machine is allowed beyond security checkpoints at airports. I'm very aware that a lot of our customers are interested in the finer points of air travel with their CPAP machines, especially those making extremely long journeys." 05-10
