What is a Sleep Study?

          A Sleep Study, or Polysonmnogram, is a test used to diagnose sleep disorders.  It tracks your pulse, breathing, and brain waves to determine what disorders you have and how they can be treated. You'll be asked to call our sleep center to set up an appointment for a sleep test that accommodates your schedule.

Treatable Sleep Disorders

Sleep Apnea - Some of those whom pause, snore, and gasp for air at night may suffer from this disorder that involves minute-short but frequent lacks of breathing that cause fatigue, high blood pressure, and more.
 

Narcolepsy - The disorder is mostly apparent in teenagers that makes them fall asleep without warning when in certain surroundings or situations.

                               
Frequent Fatigue - After presumably receiving a good night sleep and still being tired during the day can be sign that this disorder is apparent.

Types of Studies

Home Sleep Test (HST) - A test that lets you sleep in the comfort of your own home while still allowing us to obtain the information we need to diagnose your sleep problems. You will pick up a device from our facility that you will wear during the times that you usually sleep and bring it back to us in the morning.

 

In Lab Sleep Test - A more personal testing method that requires you to spend the night in our accommodating sleep facility where you will have a private room and be safely monitored by our trained sleep technicians.
