Sleep Study

What is a sleep study?

This is an overnight investigation that records your sleep and evaluates if you have any sleeping disorder.

Do I really need to do a sleep study? 

With a sleep study we can accurately diagnose what sleep disorder you have and what severity of that sleep disorder you have. In that way we can institute the right treatment. Without a sleep study we are just guessing what treatment to give you.

What sleep disorders can be diagnosed by a sleep study?

Disorders such as sleep apnoea, snoring, insomnia, periodic limb movement narcolepsy etc.

What types of sleep studies are there?

 There are 2 types of sleep studies

  1. Hospital sleep study – Here the sleep study is carried out overnight at the hospital. This is the MOST ACCURATE form of sleep study.
  2. Home sleep study – here we will give you a machine to take home and you can do the sleep study yourself. This form of a sleep study only gives us a guide that you have a problem and a hospital sleep study may be warranted.

How do I get results of the sleep study?

You will have a consultation with our sleep physician after the sleep study to discuss the results. Treatment options will be recommended at that appointment.
