- Wash your hair, shower and shave before you come in. This helps us obtain quality signals throughout the night.
- Do not drink caffeinated beverages or nap after noon on the day of the study.
- Bring a list of your medications including names and doses. If you take medications at night, you should bring these with you. We are not able to dispense medications in the Sleep Disorders Center.
- Bring things from home that will make you comfortable – a book, a favorite pillow or blanket.
Our sleep studies include digital audio and video recordings to monitor for movement disorders during sleep.
Extensive information is collected during a sleep test; therefore it may take a few weeks to get a final report. Your sleep physician will receive a preliminary report the morning after your test and you will receive your results at the time of a follow-up visit. Call your physician’s office to make a follow-up appointment after you have had your sleep study if one has not been scheduled.
