The sleep labs resemble hotel rooms so patients feel comfortable and safe. We encourage our patients to bring their own pajamas and bring personal items related to sleep, such as a favorite blanket or pillow, but blankets and pillows will also be provided. Before retiring to bed, small sensors are placed on the patient to monitor brain waves, breathing, heart rate, eye movement and more. The sensors generally do not interfere with the patient's sleep our ability to move around in bed.
