WHAT TO EXPECT

A member of our sleep lab will contact you 1-2 days before your scheduled appointment and answer any questions you may have.

Prior to your study, your insurance company will be contacted for pre-certification or prior authorization of this test if applicable.

When you arrive, the sleep technician will have you watch a video about sleep studies, and attach the proper monitoring leads/connections. This will take about 30-45 minutes. When this is completed you may watch TV or read a book until you get sleepy.

Your sleep study should be completed by 5:30-6:30 in the morning. However, we will be happy to wake you at any time specified if requested.

After your study, the data collected with be reviewed, organized, and processed by one of our staff. Your study will then be read by one of our physicians. Studies are read within 1-2 days of completion. Studies done on the weekend are read the beginning of the following week.

If you completed a CPAP or BiPAP study, before you leave in the morning, we will discuss your company preferences for medical equipment or supplies. If you have no preference, we will assist you in choosing a company.

You will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire before you leave to help us evaluate your experience in our office.
