A sleep study is a painless, non-invasive test that measures your body’s function during sleep for the purpose of diagnosing and treating a sleep disorder. It enables us to determine a treatment plan that will help you sleep well, be refreshed and live a healthier life.

THE FIRST is the diagnostic portion, where we will monitor your breathing, brain wave activity, heart rate, body movements and blood oxygen levels while you sleep.
THE SECOND portion, should your diagnostic test suggest sleep apnea, is to apply CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) in the lab while you sleep. This “titration” study is to determine the best settings for CPAP therapy, should you require it.
Occasionally, both portions of the test are performed on one evening. However, some patients require a second night for the titration study. Should the diagnostic results indicate you would benefit from CPAP therapy, you will likely be scheduled for a return visit for the titration study.
My sales job requires me to drive all over the state. I used to get so tired around 2 or 3 in the afternoon that I’d have to pull over and take a nap. My work suffered, and I worried about falling asleep at the wheel. It turned out I had sleep apnea. Now I use a CPAP machine while I sleep, and it’s made all the difference. I don’t feel like I’m going to fall asleep while driving and I’m a lot more productive at my job.
I had to force myself to stay active at my job just so I wouldn’t fall asleep. After work, I’d fall asleep in front of the TV. I never had energy, no matter how much I slept. After my sleep study at the Sleep Wellness Institute, my doctor recommended I use a CPAP machine at night. The treatment turned my life around. I’m in bed less but feel more rested, my blood pressure is lower, and the problems with my ulcerative colitis went away.
I just wanted to thank you for your help and fast service today. You were great! I should rest well tonight.
