About The Device

The Embletta MPR PG device performs level III home sleep tests. This means many parameters will be measured, such as breathing efforts, cardiac and oxygen data, and body position. One of the main differences between a home test and an in-lab test is the fact that the home test does not measure brain data, so no electrodes will be stuck to your head. With instruction from a sleep technician during pick-up, you should be able to connect the device by yourself before you go to bed for the night. It is very simple to do, and the unit will even turn on automatically!

After the study: You can obtain the results of your sleep study from the provider that ordered the test. You may be scheduled for a follow-up visit with a sleep specialist.

If you have any questions during your test, even in the middle of the night, please call the sleep center at 978-946-8297, or email sleepcenter@lawrencegeneral.org.
