Will wearing the sensors stop me from getting to sleep?
Not usually. The whole process is very easy to use and is the least obtrusive. This type of monitoring does not usually cause sleep disturbance, especially because you are able to sleep in your own home as you usually do.
How do I receive and return the monitor?
The monitor is couriered to a delivery address of your choosing, where someone will be available to receive the monitor. It is worn on a scheduled night during your nights sleep and then returned immediately the following morning, using the supplied prepaid courier bag to Sleep NZ.
Is there a delay in getting a monitor?
We pride ourselves on being able to conduct most sleep studies within the month of ordering.
Is it easy to attach the monitor?
Yes, extremely easy to use! The monitor comes with a few very simple written steps to follow. The monitor has it's own internal battery. You just put the sensors on as described in the instruction sheet included and go to sleep as usual.
What will the Sleep study results tell me and my practitioner?
The diagnosis will show three things:
- Whether you are experiencing apnea during your sleep
- The level your blood oxygen is at during the apnea events
What do I do with the results when I get them?
We make every effort to provide clear treatment recommendations in your study report that are reflective of the level of Apnea seen and are based upon current best practice. We welcome you to contact us either by free phone or email to follow up the report if you would like to discuss it further. If you do not understand any of the terms used in the report then please contact us and we can help explain in plain language the results. SleepNZ also advises that your practitioner receive a copy of the results and advise speaking with your practitioner about the sleep study results.
