    What is a Sleep Study?

    In order to receive a proper diagnosis, you will be required to undergo a sleep study. Sleep studies can be preformed in a sleep lab or at home using a portable device. During an in-lab sleep study, you will spend the night in a private room at a local sleep center. The use of portable devices allows you to undergo testing in a number of places including nursing homes, hospitals, or the comfort of your own home. Your physician will recommend the most appropriate type of study. Based on the results of the study, your physician will be able to make a diagnosis and recommend treatment options.
