Sleep Diagnostics

Alliance operates sleep diagnostic testing facilities in North Texas to assist in identifying and treating suspected sleep disorders. It is important to remember that a sleep study is a painless, in-depth recording of your body during sleep. The results will also reveal the proper course of action, based on the severity of the disorder, and assist the doctor in establishing a care plan. Alliance has convenient locations throughout the metroplex and provides a comfortable environment to monitor your sleep activity. Our highly experienced staff, technologists, and physicians collaborate to deliver the best customer experience and results reporting within 24 hours of your study.

Alliance accepts both in-network and out-of-network insurance benefits, and offers financial assistance programs for patients that do not have insurance or may have difficulty meeting their financial obligation within their coverage.

Polysomnogram (PSG)

Common overnight sleep test that doctors often prescribe to patients who are suspected to have or are already known to have sleep disorders. The PSG monitors many body functions, including brain activity, respiratory airflow, oxygen, and heart rhythm during sleep. PSG’s are used to diagnose or rule out a wide range of sleeping disorders. It is important to remember that a PSG is a non-invasive, in-depth recording of how well you sleep and allows the doctor to prescribe the proper treatment plan.

CPAP Titration

If the results of your PSG reveal that you have a qualifying sleep disorder, your doctor will recommend that you perform a second sleep study to determine the most effective airflow setting for your CPAP machine. The CPAP titration is identical to the PSG, with the addition of a medical device known as a continuous positive airway pressure machine (CPAP). Following this study, Alliance will coordinate with your insurance and a local provider of medical devices to have the machine configured and delivered to your home.

Home Sleep Testing (HST)

For the right patient, home sleep testing can be a great beginning to the evaluation process for sleep related breathing disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea. Although having an unattended study at home may be more economical and convenient, there are reasons that HST’s may not be appropriate or prescribed. Home sleep testing has limitations in identifying more complex sleep disorders and discovering potential co-morbidities.

Adults who don’t get enough sleep tend to act sluggish,
but sleep-deprived children may be hyperactive.
