If you haven’t done a sleep study before, you probably want to know how it works.
Here are some answers to the common questions we hear.
A sleep study monitors breathing activity, oxygen levels and heart rates over the course of a night. This information helps us determine if you have a sleep disorder. If you do have one, it’s important to be diagnosed and treated, so you can start feeling better. Untreated sleep disorders can contribute to other diseases and conditions, such as stroke, heart attack, high blood pressure and depression.
At home in the comfort of your own bed. We use Level 3 and PAT sleep studies, which means we’ll provide the device and the instructions; you set it up at home, sleep comfortably and the rest is up to us.
You can schedule a level 3 sleep study directly with us. If a referral is required in your province, we will provide guidance on how to obtain one.
The appointment to review instructions for your sleep study will only take 30 minutes. We can do this appointment in person or virtually. Once you have the device at home, it will take about 10 minutes to set up and then you sleep as normal.
No, the technology is non-intrusive.
Your study will end when you wake up and turn off the device. You will then return your device to Sleep Therapeutics as early as possible, through mail or by dropping it off.
On average, results take approximately two weeks. Once we have the results, we’ll book a follow-up appointment to review them and discuss your options.
If you got a referral from your physician, we will send results to their office. Your doctor will contact you to review the results, discuss if a diagnosis has been made and determine if therapy is needed.
Treatments are always personal, so results vary. Your customized solution might require a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device or a nasal dilator to help keep your airway open while you sleep. It could be positional therapy, changing your habits and how you prepare for sleep, or changing your diet or exercise regimen. For insomnia, it might be cognitive behavioural therapy. Your best treatment might be a combination of these things. In the end, you can expect the most effective, most comfortable solution to your sleep disorder.
Simply contact us and we’ll provide you with all the information you need. You don’t need a referral, but it’s a good idea to keep your doctor informed.
