In-Lab Sleep Test

An in-lab sleep study will provide the most complete evaluation of your sleep patterns. You will be required to stay overnight at the Sleep Center at Ed Fraser Memorial Hospital.

Our in-lab sleep study records heartbeats, breathing and brain waves while you sleep. We also record eye and limb movements and blood oxygen. This data helps our specialists diagnose sleep conditions and assists in development of a treatment plan.

Home Sleep Test

A home sleep test (HST), also called an unattended sleep study, is typically used to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea. Patients participating in a home sleep test will be assigned a device that measures:

  • Nasal airflow – measurement taken by thin nasal cannula placed under nose – sensors look like an oxygen nasal cannula.
  • Respiratory effort – elastic belt bands fitted across the chest.
  • Pulse Oximeter – a small clip-like device that attaches to the fingertip and assists in the measurement of oxygen levels in the blood.

Request an Appointment

If you have been referred by your physician for a sleep study, you can discuss which option is best for you and schedule an evaluation by calling the admissions department at (904) 259-3151 Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 5:00pm. The admissions department cannot schedule an appointment without a physician’s order.
