Promoting Healthy Sleep in Children and Adults 

What to Expect During Your Sleep Study

Sleep center tech with patientIt’s effortless, and painless, to undergo a sleep study at the Center for Sleep Disorders. You will arrive at the Center in the evening and be shown to a comfortably furnished, private room – complete with bed, television, telephone bathroom – where you’ll be spending the night. The room is similar to a small hotel room.


After you’ve settled in, a trained sleep technologist will show you the equipment that will be used to monitor your brain waves (sleep stages), eye movement, muscle tone, leg motion, heart, airflow, breathing effort and oxygen levels during sleep. You will have an opportunity to ask questions before the study begins.

The technologist will then apply a series of small, electrodes to your head and face, place respiratory motion detectors on your abdomen and chest. These are not painful, and you will be able to move around with them while you are asleep.

In the morning, the technologist will remove the electrodes and motion detectors from your body, and will forward the information gathered during your study for analysis and recommended treatment by a board certified specialist.

After testing, patients may be treated at the Center or referred to a specialist such as a pulmonologist, dentist, neurologist, otolaryngologist, and dietitian for additional treatment. Our sleep specialist is also available to follow-up on sleep studies and to treat patients already diagnosed with sleep disorders.
