The mean charge reported for oximetry was $294 (range: 125 - 464), the mean charge for PSG and CPAP titration trial was $1,123 (range: 1,000 - 1,217). The cost of a split-night study was the same as that of a diagnostic PSG. Total costs for oximetry, PSG and PSG/split-night were $167,529, $171,819 and $148,236 respectively. Use of screening oximetry prior to PSG would have saved $4,290 per 100 patients evaluated compared to initial PSG testing if all patients with SAHS had required a second night study for CPAP titration. Cost savings calculated with the lowest prices increased to $17,500 per 100 patients. The use of PSG in split-night studies resulted in cost savings of $19,293 per 100 patients compared to the initial oximetry algorithm.
