Could another reason they want a full sleep study is to satisfy health insurance requirements? Seem to recall that's what I was told. I didn't qualify in my first test some years ago--I honestly only slept a few hours and wondered how anyone could they way they have you hooked up. This despite the insistence of my wife who insisted I had an issue. Gave it another try and tried to avoid another formal sleep study--they mentioned the home tests but also said they have some issues with insurance and those.
