How to set up your ApneaLink™ Home Sleep Test


At EdenSleep we use ApneaLink Air, a premium ResMed device, for your home sleep test.  Please read these 5 easy-to-follow instructions on how to set up and use the device.

On the night you are doing your Home Sleep Test, follow your normal night time routine, if you take medication do so (note these down on the sleep diary/questionnaire form). 

Follow these steps to set up your Home Sleep Test device:

EdenSleep HST Step 1

Step 1:

Strap device around your upper chest

The ApneaLink Air is to be worn over clothing. Undo the straps and put monitor on above your chest, under your armpits and tighten so it is held firmly in place.

Step 2:

Place grey probe over your finger

Place grey probe over the finger that has the most comfortable fit. If you wear nail polish and are unable to remove it, then rotate the oximeter 90 degrees so the probe touches the skin on either side of your fingernail.  If you have a bruised fingernail, choose another finger.

Step 3

Step 3:

Adjust the nasal cannula

Screw the end of the nasal cannula into the ApneaLink Air. Place cannula in nose and wrap tubing above the ears.
Slide plastic collar upwards and tuck the remaining tubing under chin. If you are a restless sleeper, use two small pieces of tape to fix the tubing to your cheeks.
