What will happen when I get to the sleep center?

Under the supervision of a physician, a trained technician will attach various leads (sensors) to your head, face, chest, and legs. The sensors will record electrical activity of your brain, heart, breathing and various muscle groups. All leads are connected to a computerized polysomnograph machine that keeps track of the information.

What can I expect to happen during my sleep study?

Our sleep studies are conducted with a homelike atmosphere in private diagnostic suites. It is our goal to make our patients comfortable and relaxed. Upon arrival you will be greeted by a qualified Sleep Technician. The technician will discuss the procedure and answer any questions you may have. Once you are comfortable the technician will place "leads" on you to gather the sleep study data. Bring a book, your pajamas and we will do the rest.

After I am hooked up, will I be able to get up and use the bathroom?

What if I cannot sleep in the sleep center?

Since a sleep study is a medical test and is intended to measure your body's physiological functions during sleep, even as little as three hours of sleep is sufficient for diagnostic purposes.
