What Is a Sleep Study?
Our specialists use the latest technology to record brain waves to monitor and assess sleep, wakefulness, and dream sleep. We evaluate snoring, respiratory changes, cardiac changes, and muscle movement to identify any causes of sleep problems and how they might be addressed. We also perform daytime studies to evaluate for narcolepsy and assessment of daytime alertness, required for some professional licensing.
A Sleep Study at Arnot
Arnot Health offers sleep studies 7 days a week, in hotel-like settings with luxurious beds in a quiet, stress-free environment. On the day of your sleep study, you will be instructed to:
- Maintain your normal sleeping habits to help the sleep test fit your normal daily routine.
- Bring a list of current medications and dosages, as well as all medications you take during the time you will be at the sleep center.
- Remove artificial fingernails and nail polish from at least one finger.
- Shower and wash your hair the day of the sleep study.
- Bring reading material and a favorite pillow if these help you sleep better.
- Avoid consuming alcohol and excessive caffeine on the day of your test.
- Do not apply lotions, creams, salves, hair gel or hair spray after showering so that electrodes can be attached.
