About Sleep Studies
Once your doctor prescribes a sleep study, you schedule a time to come to the Center for the study. Six to eight hours are needed for the study. Patients sleep in a private, home-like room. During the study, sensors are applied to monitor brain waves, eye movement, heart rate, breathing, oxygen levels and muscle activity. Specially trained, patient-friendly sleep technicians make sure that care is customized for each person during the sleep study. The technician watches the patient on a video monitor and keeps tabs on body movements, oxygen levels and muscle activity.
A doctor who is board certified in sleep disorders reads and interprets the results of the test. The doctor then provides a recommendation for treatment or follow-up. Patients may set up an appointment for a sleep evaluation on their own or may be referred by a doctor.
The St. Luke’s Sleep Disorders Centers accept most major insurance plans.
