HomeSleep sleep study is performed using a cheap voice recording device of your own like MP3 player or mobile phone. The recording is very simple and it does not disturb your sleep!


The idea is to record any voices and sounds generated by the sleeping subject. These may be snoring sounds or sounds due to the movements of legs or body of the sleeping subject. The all-night audio recording is then analyzed. The analysis is automatic and you get graphic and numeric values as a print-out. The graphic preview output is free and you see that the recording was successful. The complete analysis is extremely cheap compared to any other sleep study!

Sleep study, the all-night sleeprecording

You may use a MP3 PLAYER / RECORDER, a DICTATION device or a MOBILE PHONE  to perform the all-night recording.

When using a MP3 player recording (dictation) facility is required. The recording capacity has to be 6 - 9 hours, about 100Mb of memory. Typically the MP3 players have capacity of 500-4000 MB (0.5-4 GB) which is enough for several nights.

To use HomeSleep the MP3 device should use one of the following formats to save recording data:

  • MP3, 8000Hz
  • WMA, 8000Hz
  • WAV, IMA ADPCM, 4-bit, 8000Hz

The supported MP3 devices are include models from

  • Creative
  • Philips
  • Sony
  • and many others

Please see the device user guide to find out the recording data format. You can also easily test if your device is compatible: first make a short recording (e.g. 15 minutes) of any voice. Then download HomeSleep software and try to open the recording file from your device.

Remember to charge the MP3 player full or change a new battery to have the maximum recording capacity available.

The full graph of signals, detection levels and detected events. You may go through the recording in short time periods to check for any details just by mouse clicking.

The number of minutes during the night, when the sleep was disturbed by snoring.


The amount and percentage of periodic snoring with periodic silent pauses. This periodic snoring is most often associated with sleep apneas, silent breathing pauses during sleep.


The number and percentage of movements, e.g. foot or body movements.


The number and percentage of periodic leg movements. The number of periodic leg movements in one hour = Periodic Leg Movement Index PLMI

 

You may take the print-outs of the output graphs and results to your sleep doctor. He/she may tell you if the finding is significantly associated to some medical problem and how to proceed in diagnosis and treatment.

The graphs and results may be also used to follow-up some treatments and treatments and therapy for insomnia and restless sleep. No medical disorder may be diagnosed or ruled-out using the HomeSleep without medical knowledge.

Results for seven nights are much more reliable than single night study. From several recordings it is possible to see the variation and consistency of your sleep problems. This is typically problem if only one night sleep study is used.

HomeSleep is recommended to be performed for 3-4-5-7 nights to get reliable findings!
