Sleep Disorders

What to Expect From a Sleep Study

Sleep studies available at the fully accredited Tanner Center for Sleep Disorders include:

  • Full-night diagnostic studies (nocturnal polysomnogram, or NPSG)
  • Split-night diagnostic and therapeutic studies (NPSG with continued positive airway pressure, or CPAP)
  • Daytime multiple sleep latency tests

Tech roomStudies are conducted at night and are monitored by a sleep technologist. Patients are encouraged to dress comfortably (a T-shirt and shorts for men and two-piece pajamas – not nightgowns – for women). Patients will be attached to unobtrusive electronic monitoring sensors and asked to watch television or read until they feel relaxed enough to sleep.

A sleep technologist will record video and audio at all times during sleep tests, and can communicate with the patient through an intercom. A physician will read the sleep study conducted at the center and will be available to discuss follow-up care.

With locations in Carrollton and Villa Rica, the path to a better night’s sleep begins close to home.
