What to Expect
The Night of Your Study
Below you will find answers to some of the common questions about preparing for a sleep study. You will also find some important instruction to follow before your sleep study.
When You Get Here….
When you get to our front door, you will see a silver “doorbell” and camera. If you would click on that button, one of our night techs will answer as quickly as possible. They may not answer immediately but they will answer. If you want to ring it twice, they won’t get mad….they just may not get to there any faster.
You may have to wait in our Lobby for a few minutes while the tech is hooking up another patient. We stagger the arrival of patients to allow time to hook up each patient as well as attempt to avoid wait times for the next patient. Therefore, it is not beneficial to be early, however; it is very important that you make every effort to be on time for your sleep study.
