HOME SLEEP STUDIES (Take Sleep Apnoea Test)
With the growing trend towards home based sleep studies for suspected obstructive sleep apnea most patients can now be tested in the comfort of their own home. A technician will set up and attach the monitoring equipment in our centre and the patient returns home to sleep. This has the advantage of the patient being monitored in his/ her usual sleeping environment usually translates to a better patient experience and better sleep on the study night compared to sleep lab studies. For those patients who require treatment, CPAP can be initiated at home.
All our sleep studies are reported by and conducted under the supervision of Australian registered sleep and respiratory specialists
Your GP can also refer you directly for a home seep study. Referral forms can be downloaded HERE.
Our home sleep studies are bulk billed
IN LAB SLEEP STUDIES
Some patients require a sleep study in a sleep lab, where a nurse is in attendance. You usually need to turn up at 7 pm and can leave after breakfast the next morning. You are given a private room, and a nurse will set you up with the monitoring equipment. Results are usually available within 1-2 weeks through your GP or sleep specialist
Our in lab sleep studies are currently provided by Sleep Care. Centres are located at Greenslopes Private Hospital, Sunnybank Private Hospital (for privately insured patients) and St. Andrews Place (bulk billed).
