About Your Stay

Prior to your study at the Sleep Center, we will call to preregister you.

You should:

  • Contact your primary care physician or insurance provider to obtain any necessary approvals. Sleep studies are classified as outpatient procedures for your insurance company.
  • On the day of your sleep study, you should not drink caffeine or alcohol, or nap after 1 p.m.

What You Should Bring

  • Any medicines you currently take. We do not have access to medication at the Sleep Center.
  • All toiletry items, such as:
    • Soap
    • Shampoo
    • Toothbrush and toothpaste
    • A hair dryer/curling iron
    • Razor and shaving cream
  • Two-piece sleep apparel, such as:
    • Pajamas
    • Shorts and a T-shirt
    • A sweat suit
  • A snack, if you wish to have one before bed
  • A book, crossword puzzle, or magazines to help you relax before bed

What to Expect

We make your stay with us as “homelike” as possible.

  • Each of our bedrooms is furnished with a double bed and bathroom.
  • A shower is available.
  • We provide towels, washcloths, pillows and blankets, but you're welcome to bring your own.
  • We keep the room temperature at 68 to 70 degrees for proper operation of computerized equipment, so you may want to bring comfortable sleeping apparel.
