How The ARES At-Home Sleep Study Works
When you consider the inconvenience of doing an in-facility sleep study - sleeping in an unfamiliar room, monitored by strangers while you’re unconscious, and chained to monitors so that you can’t even get up to go to the bathroom! - doing an ARES at-home sleep study instead is just a no-brainer! The ARES at-home sleep test allows you to test for sleep apnea right. In the comfort of your own home. Here’s how the ARES Solution works:
Step 1: Take the Quiz.
First, you’ll take our Sleep Apnea Assessment. Answering a few simple questions will let us know if you’re at risk for sleep apnea. After all, there’s no reason to purchase our sleep assessment if there isn’t a good chance you have sleep apnea!
Step 2: Purchase the ARES device.
If your assessment results show that you’re likely to have sleep apnea, you’ll purchase your ARES at-home sleep study on our website. Your assessment information will be reviewed by one of our PWNHealth sleep physicians, who will prescribe your ARES at-home sleep test. A prescription is necessary to obtain the ARES test, as it is a medical device. - Will insurance pay for my AREA at-home sleep test? - At this time, we do not take insurance. But you can pay for your ARES sleep test with your FSA or HSA account.
Step 3: Get the Call.
One of our representatives will contact you to go over the testing process and schedule the shipment of your ARES device.
Step 4: Check the Mail.
The ARES sleep test will be shipped directly to your home via USPS, along with a step-by-step instructions pamphlet. You'll also receive an email with a tutorial video and the phone number of our 24-hour live support team. Your device will arrive fully assembled and fully charged. All you have to do is put it on. You'll wear the ARES device the same way you'd wear a visor or baseball cap. Just slip it on and you're ready to go.
Step 5: Wear Your ARES.
You'll wear your ARES at-home sleep study device for one or two nights, 6-7 hours each night. Though only one night is required, we find that we get more comprehensive results when we can take an average of the data taken over two nights, so you get a more reliable diagnosis. - Do I need to sleep on my back to use the ARES device? No. You can sleep in any position that is comfortable for you. The ARES device is designed to work accurately and be comfortable in any position.
Step 6: Mail It Back.
Once you've slept in your ARES device for two nights, you'll mail it back to us in the prepaid USPS envelope that was included in the original shipping package. You can either mail it from your home or drop it off at a USPS shipping location.
Step 7: Get Results.
When we get your device, the data collected by your ARES device will be processed and interpreted by a board-certified sleep physician. We will contact you within two business days with instructions on how to retrieve your results. Step 8: Get Treatment. Your results will tell you what treatment is appropriate for your sleep apnea. From lifestyle changes to sleep position adjustments and medical intervention, you'll get physician-written sleep apnea treatment recommendations to help you finally overcome your sleep apnea. If your doctor recommends a CPAP machine, a prescription will be included in your results.
