Or let us contact you to give you more information or help you order a test. We will reach out to you within one business day:
1) Does Singular Sleep's home sleep apnea test meet the FAA's requirements?
Yes. Singular Sleep uses an FDA-approved Type II home sleep apnea test. You can read the FAA sleep apnea testing requirements here. If you're a pilot and you need a sleep apnea test, you can either do an in-lab (type 1) sleep study or type 2 home sleep apnea test.
2) Does Singular Sleep share my test results with the FAA, my insurance, or my AME?
No. We only share your results if you expressly direct us to. Your home sleep study results are completely private and confidential.
3) What happens if I test positive for sleep apnea?
You will need to obtain PAP equipment and demonstrate compliance with using the equipment in order to maintain your pilot's license. While your situation may vary, typically AMEs want to see an average of at least 6 hours of average usage per day and hitting that mark at least 75% of the days in a given period. Your AHI must be <5/hour on therapy.
4) Do you have a lot of experience working with pilots?
We have assisted hundreds of pilots in getting cleared by the FAA for sleep apnea.
5) Can I get CPAP equipment from you?
Yes. CPAP machines and masks require a prescription. Most of our clients who test positive on their sleep studies have an online sleep medicine consultation with our doctor. During the consultation, Dr. Krainin will review your test results and formulate a treatment plan with you. After the consultation, he can treat your sleep apnea. You also have the option to take the sleep study results to your own provider to obtain treatment.
6) Obviously I'm traveling a lot. Do you have any small CPAP machines?
Yes, we carry all four lines of travel CPAP machines which allow you to discreetly take your equipment with you when you fly.
7) Can you sign medical documents or write medical letters for me?
Yes. After your consultation, Dr. Krainin will be able to assist with the medical documentation that you may need to stay in the air. Additional fees apply.
