A sleep test is a study that records body activities while a patient is asleep. It is used by doctors to diagnose sleep disorders like sleep apnea, insomnia, or abnormal behaviours like sleep walking. Additionally, you may need to go for a sleep study if a lack of sleep has negatively affected your quality of life.
Your doctor might prescribe a sleep study if you display symptoms of sleep apnea such as daytime fatigue or chronic snoring. The sleep study can be done at patient’s own home or hotel (for overseas patient). This can also be arranged at a hospital.
