Your Sleep Study: A first step on the road to treatment
Sleep. It's what your body needs.
Sleep disorders negatively impact health and are linked to more serious conditions such as obesity, hypertension, heart failure, depression and more. A sleep study at an OhioHealth Sleep Center can help identify problems, so treatment can begin.
During a sleep study, patients stay overnight in a secure, private room equipped with a television and their own personal bathroom. Each patient starts their visit by meeting with a technician who explains the study in more detail. Next, the patient prepares for bed and when ready, monitoring equipment is placed in various locations, including the head, chest, abdomen, legs and also beneath the nose. The patient is then free to read, watch TV and ultimately to fall asleep. Once asleep, patient data is collected via video camera and sleep monitoring equipment. Each step of the study process is pain free, with no discomfort during or after the sleep study.
The next day, the patient can resume their typical morning schedule and depart the Center. The data collected during the study will be evaluated by an OhioHealth Board Certified Sleep Physician and reviewed with the patient during a follow-up appointment. The patient's primary care physician will also receive a copy of the results.
