Sleep apnea is a disorder that affects approximately 18 million Americans and has the potential for serious and even fatal complications. Ignoring sleep apnea can potentially cause patients to contract major illnesses, liability issues and operational "safety" problems.
Screening: Working with your patients, we can assist with a screening process to decide which screening programs are best suited for them under your guidance. It can range from minimal screening using FMCSA-MRB guidelines to more accurate and specific screening questionnaires. Patients can self test following the self-evaluation on this website and take the results back to you, their physician, or contact one of our trained technicians for more information.
Testing: Our in-home sleep testing is totally private and confidential. Consumers no longer need to report to an outside sleep lab, hooked up with wires and electrodes to monitors, be watched over by lab techs, awakened during your "sleep test" for equipment issues or relief breaks, interrupted to have adjustments made...all which could ultimately affect your sleep performance and not provide a "normal' sleep setting for best reporting accuracy.
Our system provides the same accurate testing options as an in-lab polysomnography used by most sleep apnea testing and treatment companies. And, they are approved by DOT regulations. Bringing sleep studies to a home environment will give consumers peace of mind and total privacy for the most natural sleep apnea testing results.
Our home sleep studies come with full instructions and will be delivered to the patient's preferred address, taken at home or any preferred sleep environment of their choice, and easily returned via UPS or FedEx. We then provide the results to you, their physician and provide continued support of the recommended sleep apnea solutions as recommended.
Being a “preferred vendor” when your patients and/or fleet/safety managers request a sleep study can avoid a host of operational problems caused by anxious patients, out of service drivers or employees, waiting for appointments for in-lab sleep studies.
When signed up with our in-home sleep apnea testing program, all you have to do is simply provide your patients with our in-home testing kit and we do the rest. Click here for more information about our Physician Lease Program.
Safety First Sleep Solutions can develop a screening process to be used for all of your patients and work with you when patients warrant sleep apnea testing. Screening programs can range from minimal screening using FMCSA-MRB guidelines to more accurate and specific screening questionnaires.
Using home sleep testing equipment provides a more cost effective testing option and convenience factor, rather than in-lab polysomnography used by most sleep apnea testing and treatment companies. Our home sleep studies can be supplied directly to you to dispense to your patients or shipped directly to your patients and taken on their time at home or any sleep environment of their choice, depending upon your requirements.
Safety First Sleep Solutions uses major brands of CPAP to create a treatment program tailored to your patients operational needs based on your recommendations. We can even provide 12V- 110 V AC inverter for any in-cab environment for long distance truck driver patients. We provide convenient 24 hour, 7 days a week, patient phone support. Our support center can answer questions that may arise during sleep testing or sleep apnea treatment, avoiding unnecessary calls to your office or patient down time for busy work schedules.
Part of the FMCSA – MRB guidelines for sleep apnea includes shortened medical certification periods pending follow up on CPAP compliance. Safety first can download compliance data from any major CPAP brand and keep your patients and especially truck driver patients ready for their next DOT physical by providing compliance data downloads and information to DOT medical examiners and other healthcare professionals.
