Overnight Sleep Study - How it Works

Arriving at the Sleep Institute - Arrive at your scheduled appointment time (usually 8:00 PM).

Before the Sleep Study - Fill out registration form and Pre-Sleep Questionnaire, and watch a video about sleep study and what to expect that night.

Facilities & Amenities - You'll be led to one of our clean, comfortable, private bedrooms that include many of the amenities of your own home. There is an adjoining bathroom including a shower and clean linens for your private use.

Monitoring Equipment - A sleep technician will attach monitoring electrodes to your head, face and legs, a belt around your chest and waist, and a small light probe on your finger. These enable us to monitor you and gather data on your:

  • Oxygen level
  • Eye movement
  • Airflow from your nose and mouth
  • Snoring
  • Brain waves
  • Leg movement
  • Heart (EKG)

During the Night - Your sleep technician will be outside of your room monitoring the equipment gathering data as you sleep.

After the Study - In the morning, the electrodes will be removed and you will be asked to fill out a post-sleep questionnaire. Feel free to shower and take your time to start your day with a complimentary Starbucks coffee or tea before you leave.

Study Results & Follow-up - Your doctor will analyze the data and will inform you of the study results during a follow up visit.
