Overnight Oximetry

A Simple Test You Can Sleep Through

What is your body doing while you sleep?  Sleep in your own bed and find out!  An overnight oximetry is a simple test done while you sleep at home.  A small boot or clip is placed on your finger and a wristwatch-sized recorder is strapped to your wrist.  You simply put the clip and wrist strap on before you go to sleep.  It is that easy!  You don’t even have to turn it on!

While you sleep an infrared light will record your oxygen levels and heart rate through your finger.  Once New West Medical receives the oximeter the information is downloaded, placed in a graph and analyzed.  The information is hand delivered to your doctor.  Simple, but informative!
