Patients are encouraged to wear their own pajamas and bring personal items related to sleep, such as a favorite pillow or blanket. Pillows and blankets will also be provided. Before retiring to bed, small sensors are placed on the patient to monitor 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.
