Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions? See if any of the following below can help.

Will I be able to sleep with the home sleep test device on my forehead?

You may find it a bit strange at first, but most people do not find it uncomfortable or an obstacle to fall asleep.

Do I need to sleep on my back?

No. You can sleep in the position that is most comfortable.

Can I sleep with a television or ceiling fan on in the room?

If possible, refrain from using anything that creates ambient noise during the sleep study.

How many hours do I need to sleep with the home sleep test device?

You will need to sleep with the ARES all night, however, in order to render a valid study the device needs to record at least 4 hours of sleep data. This data can be continuous or intermittent.

Can I take medications?

If you have questions about taking certain medications while undergoing your sleep study, please consult with your doctor.

What if I have to use the restroom or get a drink of water during the night?

Leave the monitor on and recording during these activities.

Can I shower with the home sleep test device?

No. The home sleep test device cannot get wet.

Will the Home Sleep Testing unit record my conversations?

No, the device will only record your snoring levels.

If I wake up in the middle of the night, do I have to turn off the unit?

No, the device tracks when you are asleep or awake. So, if you happen to wake up in the middle of the night, you may keep the device on and comfortably fall asleep when ready.

What are some tips I should know when wearing the Home Sleep Test?

Ensure that the head strap is properly adjusted and that it fits you snug but comfortably. Straps that are too tight may lead you to have headaches. You may adjust the head strap like a baseball cap by adjusting the band connectors located at the rear of the strap.

If you are a mother and your child wakes you during the test, do not turn off the unit. Proceed to tend to your child and return to bed when ready. The device will continue to record your sleeping habits once you are back to sleep.

Wear the head unit so that the bottom of the unit is as close to the edge of your eyebrows. This ensures that the laser points to the meatier portion of your forehead. If you place the device so that the laser hits the thinner portion of your forehead (usually higher on the forehead), you may wake up with a red mark on your forehead. That mark will go away after a few hours since it is not a rash.

Did I damage/delete my study by powering the device ON/OFF?

The device will automatically power OFF after 7 hours. The device does not erase any information and will continue recording if turned ON. The data recorded will be analyzed and it will be determined if certain data cannot be used or is invalid.

If I need to get up for any reason should I turn the device off?

No, you can leave the device on. If you turn the device off for more than 5 minutes it shows up in the system as a two-night study. Please do not power off the device.

Should I still do my study if I am sick?

We recommend that you do not try to sleep with the device if you have any kind of temporary respiratory illness, however, you CAN still do the sleep study.
