Sleep Study

Adelaide Sleep Studies and Sleep Lab

Sleep studies are complex tests that record every possible parameter in the night.
Having a sleep study means getting it right the first time. It should always include :

Our Level 1 in-hospital sleep studies can also monitor additional things that others can’t :

Home studies are not recommended for many groups (including those with high blood pressure, heart failure, neurological disease, pulmonary disease, commercial drivers, or undergoing bariatric weight loss surgery (AASM 2007)).

 

Only an in-hospital sleep study will allow you to have :

•  Integrated video recording for Parasomnias
•  Transcutaneous carbon dioxide (TcCO2) monitoring for Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome
•  Extended EEG monitoring for seizures indicative of Nocturnal Epilepsy .

 

A home sleep study won’t look for :

•  Narcolepsy, Idiopathic Hypersomnolence
•  Subtle findings related to REM Behaviour Disorder (RBD) or medication-effects
•  Circadian Rhythm Disturbances.

Home study or in-hospital study?

Did you know?

That with most home study services, you’ll be lucky to see the same reporting sleep doctor? Or that they’re located miles away? Perhaps even in another State?

We only test your sleep the best way possible

At Adelaide Sleep, the Specialist who sees you will be the one reporting your Level 1 Sleep study. They’ll also be the one starting you on treatment. In-hospital studies are recognised as the gold standard in sleep study testing. We only perform in-hospital sleep studies.

You won't be able to ....

…. have a CPAP-titration study at home. …. diagnose Narcolepsy at home. …. diagnose night-seizures at home… record Parasomnia activity at home. Level 1 sleep studies are best suited for these complex Sleep Disorders.

We'll take care of it all

You won’t be asked to put your own wires on. If a lead or wire falls off in the night, our attendant staff will know and fix the problem immediately.


You shouldn’t have just one chance.

With in-hospital studies, your sleep study will be done right, the first time. And depending on your level of private health cover and excess level, an in-hospital sleep study could be completely without expense to yourself. Consult your health fund.
