WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TESTING
Your appointment will be scheduled approximately 60 to 90 minutes prior to your usual bedtime. During overnight testing, monitoring devices will be applied to record physiological variables (brain wave activity, heart/respiratory rate, oxygen level, limb movements, muscle activity) during your sleep. The hook up will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes, and then you will be allowed to sleep for up to 8 hours. In the morning, the electrodes will be removed in about 15 minutes. You can shower, grab a muffin and a cup of coffee/juice, and then you will be off to start your day as usual.
UNDERSTAND THE RESULTS
Results are processed and delivered in a timely manner in order to begin treatment promptly. As a patient of Sleepwatchers, you will be called with the results, giving us the opportunity to explain the diagnois and treatment recommendations. We spend a great deal of time making sure you understand your diagnosis and treatment options. We will also fax results to your physician immediately to ensure continuity of care. A consultation with a board-certified sleep physician is offered before and after testing in order to keep our patients informed. All medical evaluations are performed by our medical director, Dr. Alfred Habel. Still have questions? Call us and we will alleviate your concerns!
