What Should I Expect?

The Center for Sleep at Metropolitan Methodist Hospital is conveniently located in the Metropolitan Professional Building, across McCullough Ave. from Metropolitan Methodist Hospital near downtown San Antonio. Patients are asked to arrive at the Metropolitan Professional Building during a scheduled appointment time, usually 8 p.m., to check-in. The patient is then escorted to the sleep lab by one of our board certified sleep specialists or technicians.

Our sleep labs resemble hotel rooms so patients feel comfortable and safe. We encourage our patients to wear their own pajamas and bring personal items related to sleep, such as a favorite blanket or pillow. Blankets and pillows 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.

What Happens After a Sleep Study?

The sleep study will come to an end in the early morning hours, usually around 6 a.m. Data collected during the night will be review by a physician. The physician will contact the patient in the coming weeks to discuss test results and the best course of treatment. Care plans vary to meet the unique needs of each individual patient.
