Can someone give me direction on how to do a home test?  Although never tested, I'm sure my husband has obstructive SA, but we are without insurance and are looking to cut corners...He needs help fast.See More

"II would also suggest that you checkout a local teaching hospital such as Baylor. Often they will have free clinic that will at the very least see you for free and discount the study. Plus they may have access to discounted equipment."

Hi Charlotte! Thanks for joining, and your question. You should always feel free to ask whatever questions you have, and to report back to the group about how things are going so that we can give you ideas. The problem you will have is that a CPAP needs a prescription. This should be easy to obtain if you have a sleep test. For affordability reasons, I'd suggest a home test, which runs ~$150, from which your doctor can write a script. Then you can buy for cash a CPAP machine and mask, which runs around $800.

Would that work for you?
