Sleep testing is scheduled during regular sleep hours -- either night or day, depending on the individual's schedule. The sleep testing is performed in a comfortable, home-like environment by specially trained technologists. The rooms are private, equipped with full-sized beds, cable TV and DVD player, and private bathroom and shower facilities. A sleep technologist places small sensors on various parts of the body for documentation of brain waves and muscle activity during sleep. The sensors allow the technologist to monitor the patient's sleep from another room. The patient will be required to be at the sleep center for a minimum of seven hours.
Sparrow Sleep Center is located at the Sparrow St Lawrence Campus, Building One. Sparrow Sleep Center is open 24 hours, 7 days a week.
