What Is A Sleep Study?

You may need a sleep study, or polysomnogram, which measures your bodily functions during sleep, to determine if you have a sleep disorder.

There are two types of sleep studies:
  • In-lab overnight sleep study: The accommodations mentioned above describes our sleep study lodging. Depending upon treatment recommendations, some patients may need to stay an extra day for a Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT).
  • Home sleep test: If you have high risk factors for obstructive sleep apnea and no other medical disorders, you may have a sleep study in the comfort of your home. Your sleep technologist will show you how to hook up the testing device. Once you are finished, you will return the device to the sleep center the following day.
