Overnight Sleep Studies

Your overnight sleep study will begin when you arrive at the sleep lab. The sleep technologist will greet you and show you to your room. 

Once you've changed, the technologist will attach sensors that will monitor your brain waves, oxygen levels, breathing, airflow, heart activity, and muscle movement. All the sensors connect to a small input box you can carry with you if you have to use the restroom.

Depending on the type of data we're collecting, you may be asked to try a device called a continued positive airway pressure mask (CPAP). The CPAP prevents snoring and will allow you to sleep better.

Typically you'll be in bed between 9:30 and 11 p.m. The earlier you get to sleep the more data we can collect.

Your technologist won't be able to discuss the study results. Your test will be reviewed by a sleep physician and sent to your primary care provider in two to three weeks.
