Frequently Asked Questions
What happens at a sleep study consultation?
What happens at your sleep study depends on which type of sleep study you opt to undergo. Most of the time, you can choose between an at-home sleep test and a sleep study conducted in a sleep center.
If you choose an at-home study, you’ll be given the equipment and instructions on how to conduct the test. Then, you can simply go about your night as usual and sleep in your own bed. Once the test is complete, you’ll return the equipment for evaluation.
For a test in a sleep center, you’ll pack an overnight bag with pajamas, any health or personal care items you need, as well as anything to help you relax, such as a book or headphones. The staff at the sleep center will take care of conducting the test while you sleep in a safe, private room.
