Blooms CPAP Clinic FAQs
Is the sleep test accurate?
Yes, absolutely. We use the same testing equipment and diagnostic procedures that most hospitals and sleep centers use in Australia. Every test is reviewed by a Blooms Registered Sleep Apnoea trained pharmacist and interpreted by our Board Certified Sleep Medicine Physicians.
Can your test diagnose Central and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea?
Yes. Our test will monitor both your airflow and your respiratory effort. This provides the necessary data for the Sleep Technologist and the Physician to distinguish between Central and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
Why is your test cost so low?
We started Blooms CPAP Clinic with the goal of providing everyone with access to low-cost testing. We believe that offering affordable testing is the right thing to do. We were able to create a process to achieve that goal while still using the same testing equipment as hundreds of hospitals and sleep centers across the nation.
Do I need a prescription to order a home sleep test?
No prescription is necessary, Blooms CPAP Clinic is proud to offer direct-to-consumer testing.
Will my insurance cover your test?
In most cases, Yes! Although Blooms does not bill insurance directly, we will provide you with an itemized invoice, which you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
How much does shipping cost?
Standard shipping is $49.95. A return shipping label is included with every standard order. If you need results in a hurry expedited shipping for a small fee is available.
I need a sleep test for my work. Does your test meet the sleep apnoea testing requirements for employment physicals?
Yes. We use TGA/FDA Approved Type III testing equipment to evaluate you for Sleep Apnea in the comfort of your own home. Our program meets all testing standards set fourth by the Department Of Transportation. We've never had a test rejected by any employer or Medical Examiner.
Is this test appropriate for pediatrics?
No. This test is indicated for adults 18 and older.
