Preparation before your home-based sleep study
Prior to applying your sleep study equipment, have your usual evening meal and your usual alcohol beverages. In order to get a good contact between the sensors and your skin, please shower, remove any makeup or nail polish and wash your hair. Do not apply moisturizers or oils to your skin.
The sleep study is a record of your night’s sleep. Your routine should remain the same as usual. The only difference being you will be applying and wearing a sleep monitoring device. You will place the sensors on your body as instructed at your appointment, approximately 30 – 45 minutes before your usual bedtime. Take your medications as usual unless otherwise instructed by your referring doctor. At the end of the study, you will remove the electrodes and return the equipment to the Sleep Services Australia Centre as instructed during your booking.
