IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS
All patients undergoing In-lab Sleep Studies will be tested for COVID-19. Pediatric patients 8 years old or younger do not have to have COVID test done but they will be screened. Testing will be completed at each of our sleep labs when patient arrives for their sleep study. The Technician will ask a few screening questions and then a quick nasal swab with be taken. Results are back within 15 minutes. Comprehensive Sleep Care Center is using COVID-19 Rapid Antigen testing that is FDA, EUA approved

You may go to sleep at your normal bedtime within the constraints of our sleep center protocols. Keep in mind, the earlier you go to bed, the more time we have to evaluate your sleep patterns. During the night, our sleep technologist will be available to assist you as needed. They may need to enter your room during the night should one of your sensors loosen during your sleep. If possible, we attempt to do this without waking you up or disrupting your sleep.

Your technologist will begin waking you at 5:00 am and remove the sensors and equipment. This can take about 20 minutes.
