What is an alternative to a sleep study?
What is an alternative to a sleep study? To diagnose that you have sleep apnea there really is not much of an alternative that you can have. PSG or Polysomnogram is the gold standard on diagnosing sleep apnea. The ARES system I have is something we use in our office as a screening tool but is not considered completely diagnostic or at least in my office I do not use it as a diagnosis of sleep apnea because I am not licensed to diagnose sleep apnea. I always request my patients and have their sleep study done in a sleep center or by a certified sleep specialist.
