Once your sleep study is finished, a board-certified physician will interpret the results of your study usually within 48 hours. A detailed report of the sleep study is compiled with treatment recommendations. At the follow-up appointment, the findings of your sleep study will be reviewed with you and a treatment plan discussed. Your doctor will continue to meet with you as needed to ensure that your sleep-related disorder is resolved.
In order to diagnose certain sleep-related disorders, a sleep study may be indicated. A sleep study is a noninvasive, painless test in which sleep patterns and behaviors associated with sleep are recorded. Sleep Analysts offers both overnight sleep studies at its sleep clinic in Cape Girardeau as well as home sleep apnea tests which are performed in the patient’s home.
