Sleep Studies

Most of the time if you think you have a sleep disorder, you do. A sleep specialist is the medical doctor that can confirm if you have made the right conclusion. Good Sleep Specialists make careful and detailed medical evaluation of your sleep hisory to find the source of your sleep problem. One of the most commona and best tools for detecting a sleep disorder is the overnight sleep study. Sensors are used to monitor how you act while you sleep. May graphs are made of many physical measurements, including your brain waves, heartbeats and breathing. Your sleep study will provide your doctor with the raw data that will help them find the cause of your sleep problem.
