Timeframe for your home sleep test.
You have the flexibility to conduct the home sleep test at your convenience. We do ask that you complete the sleep test as soon as possible, or within the maximum timeframe of seven days, after pickup. Once the test has been completed, an email will be sent to the sleep center, so your test can be read by one of the Sleep Providers. You should have results of your test within seven days of completion. The results will be sent to the ordering provider’s office or a copy can be picked up with a scheduled pickup time.
You may call 863.688.2700 to speak with a coordinator at Lakeland Regional Health Sleep Disorders Center or contact WatchPAT ONE if any complications occur during the sleep test. The contact information for WatchPAT ONE will be found in the packet provided at pick up.

STEP 3: You may purchase your CPAP machine directly from one of these companies or your provider’s office can send your prescription to a company of your choosing.
