The Importance of Home Respiratory Services

Having access to home respiratory care is not quite a luxury for seriously ill patients; it’s often a lifesaving necessity. For the millions of Americans struggling with respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and obstructive sleep apnea, home respiratory care is essential for improving health outcomes, quality of life and independence—all in the comfort of their own homes.

Home respiratory care is a convenient, effective and patient-centered way to provide high-quality services and supplies to help patients breathe and live easier. More importantly, it is life-sustaining therapy that allows patients to remain in their homes. Once a physician prescribes respiratory therapy, many patients receive oxygen supplies and therapy services in their own homes, rather than in inpatient settings such as hospitals and nursing homes.


Our service, people, and technology is what sets us a part from others in the industry. Solvet provides home respiratory service to patients struggling with various respiratory diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and various neuromuscular diseases. Our mission is to educate, nurture and inspire our patients to lead better lives. This is made possible by a highly effective home treatment model that focuses on transitional care, education, personalized care plans, and chronic disease management.

Home Sleep Testing

In order to diagnose sleep apnea or other sleep disorders, a patient must undergo a polysomnography (sleep study). This is usually done in a sleep lab, requiring the patient to spend the night in-lab, while the polysomnography (PSG) equipment records his/her physiological data. However, today with technological advancements a polysomnography can be performed at home, making it less expensive and more comfortable.

With a sleep test shipped to your home, you’ll get faster results, pay less, and enjoy the comfort and privacy of taking the test in your own home. The results of your online screening are sent to your physician for your in person consultation & referral.

Symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Episodes in which you stop breathing during sleep — which would be reported by another person
  • Gasping for air during sleep
  • Awakening with a dry mouth
  • Morning headache
  • Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia)
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia)
  • Difficulty paying attention while awake
  • Irritability

If left untreated, sleep apnea can increase your risk for diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, depression and more. We make it easy to get started on your journey back to better sleep and overall wellness.
