Types of Sleep Studies
There are many reasons why you may be having a sleep study. I will explain what to expect and everything you need to know to prepare mentally and physically for your upcoming study. I am a registered sleep technologist and have performed hundreds of sleep studies. In doing so, I have learned that most patients feel uninformed prior to a sleep study and do not have full comprehension of the process....no need to worry - this is a painless test and is well worth your time. You don't even have to study for this test!
If the doctor orders a sleep test it is generally polysomnography and you would be treated as a clinical patient.
