The test can be done either at a sleep study facility or in the patients home. If the lest is done at home the patient must have the sensor leads applied by a trained sleep technician, and then will have to return in the morning to have the leads removed and the test unit downloaded for study. If sleep apnea is detected, this test may be repeated with the patient using C-pap (a device that helps the patient to increase oxygen levels during sleep) to evaluate the effect.

For this test, you will go to a sleep lab that is set up for overnight stays—usually in a hospital or sleep center. While you sleep, an EEG monitors your sleep stages and the cycles of REM and nonREM or NREM sleep you go through during the night, to identify possible disruptions in the pattern of your sleep. A sleep study will also measure things such as eye movements, oxygen levels in your blood (through a sensor—there are no needles involved), heart and breathing rates, snoring, and body movements.
