About Sleep Studies
- For a sleep study, you will have an overnight stay at the Sleep Center at Crossing Rivers Health.
- Using state-of-the-art equipment, your brain waves, eye movements, breathing patterns, heart rate and rhythm, blood oxygen levels, and leg movements are measured and recorded throughout the night.
- A technician will monitor your sleep all night and gather data.
- This information is reviewed in detail by a sleep specialist to determine if you have a sleep disorder.
