What to Expect in the Sleep Lab
When you arrive at the center, you will be shown to your private
bedroom and given a questionnaire to fill out about how your day has
gone. You will have time to unwind, change into your sleep attire and
prepare for bed as you normally would. Private showers are available
for your use. Each shower has shampoo and conditioner as well as large
comfy towels. 32-inch LCD flat screen TV's are located in each bedroom.
you have a time commitment in the morning, be sure to inform the
technician prior to your study so a wake-up time can be arranged.
to going to sleep, your certified sleep technician will gently attach
various monitoring sensors to you using tape or a soft removable
adhesive. These sensors are designed to be as comfortable as possible
and do not poke the skin. There are no needles or pain involved in a
sleep study. If you have any concerns, you are encouraged to ask
questions of your technician regarding the testing process. For your
privacy and comfort, the sleep technicians remain in a separate control
room in another part of the building and are always available for you
throughout the night.
In the morning after your sleep study is
completed, you will be given a short questionnaire to complete. Due to
the large amount of data collected, the night technicians are unable to
discuss the results of your study. An appointment will be made for you
to go over the results with your doctor.
Before your morning departure, you are invited to enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
