The healing process begins with a stay in our state of the art sleep lab. Just bring your pajamas or loose fitting clothing. A qualified sleep technologist will connect painless monitoring pads to your head, torso, and legs that will educate doctors about your condition. The sensors allow free movement during sleep, and most patients report sleeping very comfortably during their evaluation. With a solid diagnosis of your condition, doctors will prescribe a program of treatment to restore sleep health.
If you are interested in joining us for Sleep Therapy, please print off and fill out our questionnaire; bring it in with you to your first appointment.
Types of Study
Diagnostic sleep tests may include the Epworth Sleepiness Scale and other surveys and testing to determine what potential problems may be causing your sleep issues.
Therapeutic Sleep Study
A therapeutic sleep study, or polysomnogram, involves an overnight stay in our Sleep Evaluation Center, where we monitor you for a variety of conditions, including sleep apnea, insomnia, or snoring.
Patients who are denied an in-lab study by their insurance provider may be eligible for a home diagnostic study. Please call 412-777-6921 for more information.
