You should arrive at the Sleep Center at 8:45 p.m. Most nights there will be two patients. The sleep tech will escort you to your private room. You will have the opportunity to fill out any needed forms and change into comfortable sleeping attire.
A tech spends about 45 minutes with you taking the necessary measurements for lead placement. Once the tech is finished with your hook-up, you may read, relax, or watch TV.
Lights out must be no later than 11:00 p.m. This allows for 6-plus hours of recording time for accurate scoring and reading of the study. Please let the sleep tech know if you prefer to have lights out earlier than 11:00 p.m. You will be awakened between 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. to return home prior to your workday.
You should bring and take all usual medications, unless specifically instructed by your physician to do otherwise.
Please do not take a nap on the day of your sleep study. Avoid caffeine and alcohol after 2:00 p.m.
