The Study

Upon arriving at AGDSC for your scheduled sleep study you will be greeted by a professional and friendly technician who will escort you to your room. The technician will then carefully explain the procedure and what to expect during the night. The technician will prepare you for the study by placing leads on your lower legs, chest and head. Electrode gel will be used to adhere the leads to your skin. The gel is similar to the stickiness of an adhesive bandage. If applicable, the technician will also fit you with a mask. It is important to note that none of this equipment causes any pain or discomfort.
