Abstract

ABSTRACT: The landscape of sleep medicine practice is actively evolving out of the laboratory, driven primarily by the improvement of home testing technology and the implementation of utilization management by insurance companies. This article will review a case of a patient with possible obstructive sleep apnea and discuss the history of home sleep testing and the reasons that home sleep testing will have an increasingly large role in the practices of physicians who evaluate patients with sleep disorders. Neurologists with an interest in sleep medicine should educate themselves on the use of home testing in clinical practice.
