What to expect at the sleep center
Spend the night in a quiet, comfortable hotel-like private room with its own bathroom. You’ll be asked to arrive a couple of hours before bedtime. You may bring personal items and wear your own pajamas.
Before you go to bed, a sleep technician will place painless sensors on your head and body. You’ll be alone in the room during your sleep tests. Your sleep technician monitors your sleep and condition from a separate room throughout the night. You can easily call your technician if you have any questions or problems during your stay.
In the morning, enjoy a light breakfast before leaving the sleep center.
Sleep tests for shift workers
If you work nights or evenings, and sleep during the day, ask about scheduling a sleep test to fit your usual sleep schedule.
Home sleep apnea test
If your doctor thinks you may have obstructive sleep apnea, you may be eligible for a home sleep test. Sleep in the comfort of your own bedroom while wearing a portable computer monitoring device that checks your heart rate, blood oxygen levels and breathing patterns. Certain patients may not be eligible for this test, including people younger than 18 years old or those with specific heart and lung conditions.
Sleep test results
Data from your sleep test is analyzed by a board certified sleep medicine doctor. Results are then shared with your referring physician.
