If your AME is requiring you to have a sleep apnea test to renew your FAA medical certificate, Singular Sleep can help. We offer fast, affordable, AME-accepted home sleep apnea tests for pilots and award-winning customer service.
1) Does Singular Sleep's home sleep apnea study meet the FAA's requirements?
Yes. Singular Sleep uses an FDA-approved Type III sleep apnea test. You can read the FAA sleep apnea testing requirements here. Type III sleep testing devices are deemed acceptable "in communities where Level II HST [home sleep test] is unavailable. Type II devices are generally no longer used in clinical practice throughout the United States.
2) 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 at least 6 hours of average usage a night and meeting this mark at least 70% of the given nights in a 30-day period.
3) Do you share my sleep test results with my AME, the FAA, my insurance or anyone else?
No. Singular Sleep will not share your home sleep study results with any entity without your express written consent.
4) 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.
5) 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.
