Sleep Studies

Sleep studies are tests that measure how well you sleep and how your body responds to sleep problems. 

 

Vital to determining the type and severity of sleep disorder, a sleep study is either conducted in a sleep lab or with a home sleep testing device like the Apnea Risk Evaluation System or ARES™.

 

Sleep studies are especially important because untreated sleep disorders can raise your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes and other medical conditions.

In the lab

During your study
 

A technologist applies various electrodes and sensors to points on your body. These provide the measurements your doctor will review. Application and removal of these sensors is painless.

 

You are escorted to a private bedroom where you spend the night.

 

A technician will monitor you on a video camera all night, while also monitoring and recording your biological signals. 

 

After your study
 

Your overnight recording will be delivered to your doctor for an interpretation. Your doctor will review the results with you and recommend any necessary treatment.
