What is a Sleep Study? A sleep study is a procedure where different body signals are recorded during sleep to diagnose and treat various sleep disorders. These studies are performed in a monitored sleep room (similar to a nice hotel room or bedroom) and attended by a trained technologist. Our sleep labs are state of the art with the latest in technological advances; the rooms are private and attractively designed. There is a centralized control room with a technologist in attendance to gather the data and provide you with the services needed for the night. During this study various body functions are measured. This includes brain waves, eye movements, breathing patterns, oxygen levels, heart rate and rhythm and limb movements. These measures are used for diagnosing various sleep disorders and initiating treatment.
