Setting Up an Appointment
Upon referral from your doctor, the Sleep Disorder Center will contact you to set up your appointment. You will receive a questionnaire and information packet to complete at home to save you time prior to your evaluation.
What to Expect
On the scheduled night of your test, you will be prepared for the painless test. Sensors are applied to your scalp, face, chin, chest and legs. These sensors are comfortable and are attached to equipment that monitors your brain waves, breathing, heart rate and muscle activity.
After your monitoring equipment is applied, you can relax in our home-like setting. The spacious private room includes a confortable bed with a television and private restroom.
While you sleep, a Polysomnography Technilogist will observe and record your sleep patterns and the information being transmitted by the attached sensors.
We will wake you the next morning in plenty of time to return home or prepare for work.
Diagnosis and Treatment
One of the sleep medicine physicians will exam your results and forwards the findings to your primary care physician who will discuss the results of your study with you. Depending on your diagnosis, you may spend a second night at the Sleep Disorders Center to better determine your level of treatment.
Cost of a Sleep Study
The reimbursement from insurance companies vary. Pre-authorization may be required by your insurance company.
