What to expect at a sleep study

When you arrive at a sleep study you will be greeted by a professional sleep technician that will escort you to your sleep lab bedroom.  The sleep technician will explain the procedure and what to expect during the night.

Once the study is ready to begin, the sleep technician will prepare you for the evening by placing leads on your lower legs, chest and head. Electrode gel will be placed on your skin for the leads.  If needed, the sleep technician will also fit you with a mask.

The preparation will take between 30 and 45 minutes.  Wake up time is between 5 and 6 am.

  • a private bedroom with a private or shared bathroom with fresh clean linens, towels and washcloths
  • a night stand with lighting
  • a TV with cable service
