What to expect during your sleep study

Your sleep technologist will show you to your private room, where you will be asked to change into your night clothes and fill in pre-sleep questionnaires. We will attach various sensors for the study. When you are ready for bed (no later than 11.00 p.m.), the sleep technologist will connect the equipment to the monitoring devices and start the study. The equipment will be calibrated and the lights turned out.

The sleep study will begin no later than 11.00 p.m. and will be finished by 6.00 a.m.

What to expect after your sleep study

In the morning, when the test is completed the sleep technologist will remove the sensors and equipment. You will be asked to complete the post-sleep questionnaire, get your parking stub validated and then you will be free to go.

Most patients are ready to leave between 6.00 and 6.30 a.m.

Before you leave, please ensure to take all your belongings.

Please note, the sleep technologist is NOT authorized to discuss your test results with you.
