"Great to hear you're having an in-patient sleep study Savannah.  You may not need to investigate UARS either, because if a simple study (probably pulse oximetry) has picked up an issue that warrants an in-patient study, then it's…"

"Dear Sleep2snore, thanks for your reply and apologies for my late response. In the case that UARS is detected, may I enquire what you mean regarding a more complex machine? Are you referring to BiPAP machines? Many thanks!"

Sleep2snore replied to Savannah A.'s discussion Sleep Centre in UK that measures UARS
"That is a difficult one, but if you have a Polysomnography done a good Sleep Doctor should spot the signs, however, it is often missed unless the patient mentions it or ENT (if you attended there first before referral) suspects you might have…"
