Understanding Your Sleep Study Results

A sleep study measures many different variables during sleep. The aim is to determine the severity and impact of the sleep disorder.


Your Sleep Study Report

Your results will be analysed by a Sleep Scientist and then a Sleep & Respiratory Specialist, and in most cases be provided to you by our clinical sleep experts. If required a further appointment can be made with one of our attending sleep specialists. Once diagnosis is complete you will be offered a treatment trial plan based on your results.


Your Sleep Specialist Recommendations

A Sleep Specialist is a medical doctor with advanced training in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of sleep disorders. Often you will see their title as Respiratory and Sleep Physician. As well as respiratory issues, they look after all sleep related breathing disorders, such as sleep apnea. They will also see patients with disorders such as narcolepsy, insomnia, circadian rhythm disorders, periodic limb movement disorder/restless legs.
