When you go to the doctor for care, the nurse takes your vitals and places this little clip on your finger. Do you know what that is? Perhaps you have never heard of an oximetry test. Performing this test can measure theoxygen saturation level in your blood. It is an easy and simple test and it will give a matter of fact answer to how well you may be sleeping at night. But like you, many of us are tired and so exhausted that we can barely make it from morning to night without our bodies begging for rest.For this reason, your doctor may order a sleep study kit and a pulse oximetry test. These will help him to determine what issues are leading to the lethargy during the day. Both tests will make diagnosis of your condition much easier and quicker. VirtuOx is a provider that is a courier of oximeters to and from the home of the patient.

Your fingertip can tell the doctor how good oxygen being sent to your extremities.
You must understand and believe that a test that can reveal so much can be done in the comforts of home with just the tip of the finger. If your doctor want to determine if you are suffering from sleep apnea, this may be one of the best ways to determine the extent of your disorder.
