A guide to ResMed onesleeptest^: A home sleep test


Are you concerned about whether you are getting the quality sleep you need to awaken your best every day? If you often feel like a zombie even after a full night's sleep, it may be time to consider a sleep test. A sleep test or sleep study is similar to wearing an activity tracker, but it measures the quality of your sleep rather than the number of calories burned!

One popular option for a home sleep test is the ResMed onesleeptest. The test involves wearing a small device for three nights and answering a few questions. The device measures and records your sleep and is then passed on to a sleep physician for thorough analysis, in conjunction with the results from your sleep questionnaire.

Here are some commonly asked questions to guide you on how to use onesleeptest.

How do I get the onesleeptest? 

You can order and complete your sleep study  in the home environment. The ResMed onesleeptest is available for purchase online for $149 with free shipping straight to your door.

Can I do the onesleeptest at home?

Absolutely! onesleeptest is designed to be completed from home, making it a convenient home sleep test option. To  produce your test results, all you need is to record three consecutive nights of data. In case you encounter challenges during the first night, the app allows for additional nights of sleep data to be collected.

How do they test sleep apnea with the onesleeptest?

ResMed onesleeptest is like a personal sleep assistant that will monitor your heart rate, breathing, and other vital signs while you snooze. Just attach the sensor to your fingertip, start recording with the app, and let it do the rest.


What do I do before using onesleeptest?

Not much preparation is needed – you can jump straight in. Once you’ve received your onesleeptest, download the NightOwl Companion app, and follow the instructions. Everything you need in included in the onesleeptest package, including the finger tape. We recommend that your phone is charged fully, and that the tightness of your tape is comfortable.

What can I expect while using the onesleeptest?

Once you’re ready for your test, prepare for sleep as you usually would. The only difference is you’ll need to attach the sensor to your fingertip and start recording using the app before you fall asleep. Take the sensor off in the morning and repeat this process for an additional two nights. After recording three successful nights of data,  a sleep physician will look at your results. You'll receive your results within 3-5 working days after that.
