What happens during a sleep study?
During a sleep study, you will spend 12 to 24 hours in a comfortably furnished, quiet room. You can even bring a favorite pillow or teddy bear. Sensors, wires, electrodes, and belts will be attached to your body. None of this equipment causes pain—it simply collects information about your breathing, brain waves, and body movements while you sleep and sends data to a technician, who is monitoring the study from another room.
What's my diagnosis?
Once the study is completed, a sleep specialist will analyze the data to find the cause of your sleeping problems. Along with your doctor, the Sleep Center staff will provide recommendations and treatment options to help you get better.
