In-Lab Sleep Study

An all-night sleep study is exceptionally valuable for diagnosing and treating many sleep disorders, including breathing disorders, movement disorders and neurological disorders that happen while you’re asleep. Sleep studies are easy to tolerate, comfortable and give the sleep physician the information he/she needs to accurately diagnose and treat your sleep disorder.

Getting Ready for Bed

We will apply electrodes to your scalp, the sides of your head, under your chin and on your chest. This lets us measure brain waves, heart rate and eye movements while you’re sleeping. We’ll also place a sensor by your nose and mouth to measure airflow. Belts are placed around your rib cage and abdomen to measure breathing movements. A clip is placed on your finger to measure your blood oxygen levels.

No Needles, No Pain

The electrodes are connected to a box by the bedside for relaying the signals to the central control room. In addition, all patients are videotaped while sleeping. In the central control room, the technician monitors your sleep and general condition. You can easily call the technician if there is any problem.

Special Needs for Sleep Apnea

For some patients with sleep apnea, the effects of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) are evaluated. Usually these patients have had a previous sleep study to diagnose the condition. During the CPAP study, everything is done the same as a normal sleep study. In addition, a mask is fit around the nose or nose and mouth. During sleep, the technician attempts to find a pressure level that holds the airway open and lets the patient get a good night’s sleep.

Time to Get Up

Your sleep study should be completed and you should be able to go home by 6 or 7 a.m. However, if you need to wake up earlier, just let the technician know.

Once your sleep study is completed, it’s scored and sent to a sleep physician for interpretation. The interpretation is sent to the physician who ordered the sleep study and appropriate follow-up is arranged.

If you have any questions about your sleep study, please call the Sleep Center at 262-522-3070.
