What We Do
We evaluate people for possible sleep disorders and perform appropriate testing to produce a diagnosis. We perform overnight sleep studies (polysomnographs) and related procedures on patients with suspected sleep disorders. The overnight procedures include polysomnograms and nasal CPAP polysomnogram titrations. Additional procedures include Multiple Sleep Latency Testing (MSLT), Maintenance of Wakefulness Testing (MWT), and overnight oximetry. Our staff is also able to perform mask fittings and re-fittings for CPAP users and machine pressure verifications.
What to Expect During a Sleep Study
Monitoring your sleep during an overnight sleep study is the most effective and accurate way to diagnose sleep apnea. The procedure is convenient, painless, and is covered by most insurance plans.
During a sleep study, you spend a night in a private room in one of our sleep centers. While you sleep, electronic devices supply information on brain waves, eye movement, heartbeat, breathing, oxygen level, respiratory effort, and muscle activity.
In addition, a technician monitors your body movements as well as snoring, talking, or other noises you make while you’re asleep to observe you and your sleep pattern.
Our staff of highly skilled sleep technicians and board certified sleep physicians evaluates the data, and the team develops a treatment plan that is sent to your referring physician.
You will experience a professional staff working in industry-current facilities. On your first visit, you will become familiar with the center and complete a brief assessment and questionnaire. After you dress for bed, the technician will attach the various monitoring devices. This process takes approximately 45-60 minutes. The process is painless and the monitors are easily removed in the morning. Patients typically leave the center by 7:00am.
