What you can expect:
When you arrive for your sleep study, the technician will take you to your room. You will be asked to change into your nightclothes. Small sensors will be placed on your head and body with tape and cream. The sensors are then plugged into a device that will monitor your sleep. If you need to use the restrooms once the sensors are plugged in, the technician can unplug the sensors. A camera in your room will monitor your body movements as part of the study. The technician will be outside your room the entire night. You will leave at approximately 6:30 am the following morning.
If you have breathing problems, a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) device may be used. CPAP is a device that can help you breathe and improve your sleep. It may be used during the second half of your sleep study or on another night.

doctor. If you have any questions, contact our office and ask for Beverly.
She will be happy to help you.
