Some patients may require a sleep study to better evaluate their sleep disorders. Sleep studies usually are recommended for people who suffer from sleep apnea, pathologic sleepiness like narcolepsy or nocturnal behaviors such as sleep walking or dream enactment. Sleep studies measure factors such as brain wave activity, heart rate, eye movement and oxygen levels while you sleep. A complete evaluation typically requires one to two nights of sleep monitoring. Daytime testing may also be required. Roane Medical Center staff want you to feel as comfortable as possible during your sleep study, so a cozy atmosphere is provided, and a sleep technician will administer continuous monitoring.
After completion of the sleep study, our physician will review your results and may refer you to other specialists as needed. Typical referrals include dentistry, otolaryngology (ENT) or weight management.
Sleep studies are only offered to patients referred by their primary care physician. For more information, please call Roane Sleep Specialists at (865) 882-0046.
