About Us

National Sleep Diagnostics (NSD) has been providing home diagnostic testing for sleep apnoea since 2005 through a network of providers across Australia. 

We have a team of highly qualified and experienced sleep physicians and sleep scientists who analyse, diagnose and provide treatment recommendations for people testing positive for sleep apnoea.

Our home sleep tests are conducted in over 50 partner locations, including Chemmart pharmacies and individual agents.  A referral for a home sleep test can be obtained through your doctor.

As recommended by the ASA (Australian Sleep Association), NSD has no formal links to any CPAP manufacturers or providers in the marketplace and we do not sell CPAP, NSD only provides diagnosis and analysis of your sleep.   Recommendations are independent and are not biased towards any one treatment but the one that is best for you.


 

Diagnosing Sleep Apnoea

Today’s 24 hour lifestyle, coupled with an obesity epidemic, have contributed to a rapid rise in sleep disorders in recent years. Sleep apnoea often remains undiagnosed and the consequences can be substantial.
