A sleep study is an overnight recording
to accurately monitoring what happens to your body
during sleep. Small sensors are placed on the body and
attached to a sophisticated monitor to records crucial
information such as brain waves, muscle activity, oxygen
levels and your breathing. There is no pain and it is
expertly setup to minimise discomfort. You can move
freely in bed and there is little interference to your
sleep. Overnight recordings can be made using a small
portable device, allowing you to sleep in the comfort of
your own home (a Home or ‘portable’ study).
Alternatively, it can be done whilst you sleep in our clinic overnight (a ‘lab’ based study) where your sleep will be supervised by a trained technologist to ensure the best quality recording.
