What to Expect on the Night of your Study

 

A sleep technologist will greet you upon your arrival to the laboratory and you will be asked to complete the patient forms. You will be assigned a spacious private room and allowed to change into your sleep attire. The set up for the Polysomnogram requires the use of non-invasive electrodes and monitoring devices that will be placed on the surface of your skin or above your clothes. You will be monitored during the study with a technician available to assist you at all times.


Upon completion, in the morning the monitoring devices will be removed at which time you will be released. A Board Certified Sleep Specialist will then interpret the exam and the results will be forwarded to your referring physician.

 

What to Expect for you Home Sleep Test

When you arrive to pick up your Home Sleep Test (HST) you may be asked to fill out a few patient forms and provide your insurance card and picture ID. Then our DME Specialist will teach you the steps to setup the HST. You will take it home for a few days. The device will collect data while you sleep. You will then return the HST back to Southern Sleep Diagnostics on the designated day for return.
