How do I get a sleep study?
Poor sleep, like any medical issue, should be discussed with your primary physician as the first step in the treatment process. Discuss with him/her the symptoms you are having. If your doctor feels you may be suffering from sleep apnea he/she will send an order to the sleep clinic to schedule a sleep test.
A physician order is required to schedule sleep testing.
What can I expect during my sleep study?
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.
