Why a Sleep Study?

Call Us:  705-472-1967

Sleep Apnea, Restless Leg Syndrome, Narcolepsy, and other sleep disorders can be diagnosed with an overnight sleep study.

A sleep study (also called a 'polysomnogram') is a test which measures many aspects of your sleep to find the cause of your sleep problems.  This test measures brain function, heart and breathing activity, muscle activity and also analyzes sleep time and quality.  Measurements are done while you sleep in our clinic.  A sleep study is a critical part of the overall sleep assessment and when combined with your symptoms, assists to diagnose and treat your sleep disturbance.
