In brief: At home - possibly

Home sleep tests are usually done with a pulse oximeter - a device that measures the oxygen saturation in your blood.
If it is low, that is an indication that a patient may have an obstruction causing low oxygen. However, sleep clinics can also do tests to determine sleep problems. Restless legs, abnormal ekg's, and other problems can also be detected.
