What to Expect During a Sleep Study
Typically a complete evaluation by a physician precedes a study. The center has a panel of sleep physicians who are board certified and recognized as experts in diagnosing and treating sleep disorders.
The evening of the study, the patient arrives at the center around 8 p.m. and is escorted to a private room, which is equipped with bath, shower and cable television. Once the patient has settled, the technologist connects the patient to the monitoring equipment via stick-on electrode patches. No needles or other invasive methods are used and the hook-up takes approximately one hour.
The study is conducted throughout the night while the patient sleeps.
In most cases, the patient is able to leave for their normal routine early the next morning after enjoying our complimentary breakfast.
