Our team of sleep scientists diagnose conditions that can be detected during sleep.
As part of our respiratory health services, we offer sleep study services to help investigate any issues you may have with sleep.
A sleep study is a recording of your physical activities while you're asleep. All studies are done overnight within the clinic and are non-invasive.
Who we see
We provide sleep study services to all patients referred by their consultant.
What to expect
If you've been referred for a sleep study, you'll spend the night in the clinic. You'll be admitted on the evening of your study and discharged early the following morning.
During the test, we'll monitor and record your sleep activities. This will help us get a detailed understanding of the quality of your sleep.
Sleep studies record the following during your sleep:
- oxygen levels
- pulse rate
- breathing effort
- mouth and nose airflow
- sleep position
- brain activity
