After arriving at the sleep center, you'll be greeted in the waiting room by one of our experienced clinical technologists.
Your clinical technologist will show you to your room and provide a short orientation to your sleep study. You’ll then change into your sleep wear and get ready for your study.
Monitoring leads will gently be applied to your face and scalp using a light gel and adhesive pads. Your clinical technologist will then test the leads and calibrate the monitoring equipment to get the best possible results from your study.
CPAP mask/lights out
Your clinical technologist will apply your Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) mask and give you a brief introduction as to how the therapy works. Then, at your regular bedtime, we’ll turn lights out so you can get to sleep and begin your study.
Control room monitoring
Using specialized monitoring equipment and in-room camera, your clinical technologist will remotely monitor your sleep.
You’ll have full use of your private bathroom anytime during your study. When you wake in the morning, you can shower, change and get ready for your day.
We’ll provide light breakfast items, such as breakfast bars, coffee, tea and juices. While you have breakfast, you’ll complete a short post-sleep questionnaire to help us better understand your response to CPAP therapy. Then, you can drive home or head directly to work
The clinical technologist will analyze your sleep study, and then send it to your physician for interpretation.
Your physician will review the results of your CPAP Treatment study to determine if CPAP therapy is right for you and the optimal airway pressure to effectively treat your sleep anpea.
If your physician prescribes home CPAP therapy, Sound Care will contact you to set up a CPAP education appointment with one our experienced CPAP specialists.
