Getting back to normality in a COVID-19 environment

By June 1, 2020 No Comments

The Australasian Sleep Association has endorsed the resumption of face-to-face sleep testing in a limited capacity. The statement published on May 5th allowed for home-based sleep studies to resume with technician assisted setup, provided patients were pre-screened for symptoms of COVID-19 or potential exposure to an infected person, and had body temperature checks performed in-clinic.

Following these recommendations, Sleep Testing Australia has resumed face-to-face technician assisted home-based sleep studies, however we will continue to perform telehealth assisted “no touch” setups for patients as an alternative to the traditional model.

Thanks to our referrers and patients for being both understanding and supportive of our service during this time.
