"You're welcome Amanda and ask the sleep clinic what your husband's AHI was on the sleep study.  If people are symptomatic for sleep apnoea, even in the mild criteria which is an AHI of 5-15 then they should be given a CPAP…"

Sleep2snore replied to Amanda S's discussion Which is the best sleep apnoea test?
"The best test is one you need help to get all connected up to, it can be done at home but is very expensive to hire the machine.  Best to do a study over two nights, though it costs to do this.  Kath I think does sleep studies, but then…"

Which is the best sleep apnoea test?

This is my first post and I am very grateful to have found this forum.My husband was tested for sleep apnoea  using a home test on the NHS in Dec 17. At the interview afterwards they told him he had sleep  apnoea  but not bad enough to be given a CPAP. They offered no other treatment. Since then he continues to have disrupted sleep and in fact sleeps mostly in a chair downstairs as this is better for quality sleep.
