What services does The SleepHealth Clinic provide?
- Sleep diagnostic tests are non-invasive procedures conducted to record and monitor electroencephalogram (EEG) activity of the brain and other organs during sleep to identify the cause of sleep problems.
- At The SleepHealth Clinic, we provide the option of clinic site home sleep testing or remote telehealth home sleep testing.
- An In-Lab sleep test may also be recommended if initial home-based sleep test indicate the need for further assessment. A referral from your GP is required for all sleep study tests.
What is a Clinic Site Home-based Sleep Test?
A clinic site home based sleep test requires the consultation and sleep study setup to be conducted face to face with one of our sleep study clinicians. During the consultation, the sleep clinician will demonstrate to the patient how to attach all sensors to the face and body in order to record all signal activity during the night such as brain wave activity, breathing, snoring, heart rate, oxygen levels and body movement. The sleep clinician will also be available on the night to assist with any technical issues if such should arise.
What do I need to prepare?
Before your sleep study, it is recommended that you remove any make-up, jewelry (including rings and watches) and nail polish before sensors are applied, as these may interfere with signal quality. All information regarding your appointment will be provided to you via email confirmation and during your initial consultation. Any further questions regarding your study can be directed to 1300 800 357 during office hours.
What happens after the study?
A report of your results will be available within 2-3 weeks. Please contact The SleepHealth Clinic for a follow up appointment.
