What to Expect
We perform our in-lab sleep testing as close to your normal sleep time as possible, which ensures a more accurate test. Special equipment will record information about brain waves, breathing, heart rate and oxygen level while you sleep. The measuring devices do not cause discomfort or disrupt sleep. We can schedule a private tour of our center prior to your sleep test to make you feel more at ease. Patients exhibiting moderate to severe sleep apnea syndrome may be treated the same night of the diagnostic test, which could reduce the need for more tests. We provide in-lab set up and explanation of our Home Sleep Apnea Testing as well.
