The Sleep Study

The Sleep Study

This is a recording that measures and identifies the different stages of sleep and the
breathing problems that occur during sleep. We conduct these studies using the most
current and sophisticated equipment for monitoring and evaluating patients during
their sleep.

While patients sleep on comfortable beds in our restful Sleep Center, technicians in an
adjacent control area observe and record such things as sleep and breathing patterns,
and other important body functions.

It is a painless and easy evaluation. Measurements are done with surface
electrodes; there are no needles or skin punctures. You will sleep in total darkness
while your sleep is digitally recorded. For your night’s study you will report to the Sleep
Center two to three hours before your regular bedtime and you will leave early in the
morning.

Dr. Baten reviews the Sleep Study results and then provides a written report of
the findings to your referring physician. This may include recommendations for
treatment, when appropriate.
