Questions & Answers
What is a sleep study?
You may have your sleep study at one of Mercy's Sleep Centers. You will sleep in a comfortable, private room with the look and feel of a quality hotel room. While sleeping, specialized equipment monitors your brain waves, breathing patterns, heart activity and muscle movements throughout the night. These recordings are continually monitored by trained technicians who are available to attend to your needs at all times.
To diagnose your sleeping problem, you will sleep overnight at one of our Mercy Health Sleep Centers. You'll stay in a private, comfortable room with the look and feel of a hotel room, not a hospital room. Each patient bedroom has a private bathroom and shower.
Before you begin settling in for the night, a technician will apply various sensors to your body to record information while you sleep. We'll monitor your brain waves, breathing patterns, heart rate, oxygen levels, and body movements. Our technicians are awake all night, monitoring your sleep and safety by computer and video camera. They're available to attend to your needs at all times.
What about insurance coverage?
Evaluation and treatment of sleep disorders are accepted medical procedures covered by most insurances and Medicare. We will work with you and your physician's office to confirm your eligibility for a sleep study.
How do I make an appointment?
Sleep studies must be ordered by a physician. If you do not have a primary care physician or you would like additional information, just call one of our centers.
