A new study in the August issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine evaluated the feasibility of comprehensive home sleep apnea testing, including electroencephalography (EEG), in 201 school-aged children. Results show that with a technologist going to the child’s home to place the leads, the tests were initially technically satisfactory in 91 percent of cases. According to the authors, additional studies should examine the cost-effectiveness of this approach and its generalizability to a clinical population.
