Frequently Asked Questions
Getting a sleep study, also called a sleep test, is crucial for diagnosing sleep disorders including sleep apnea. It’s a non-invasive, overnight test that monitors your brain activity, oxygen level, heart rate, breathing, and more. Sleep studies can be taken either in a sleep clinic or in the comfort of your own home.
Once it’s completed, Dr. Doneskey will examine your test results and provide you with an accurate diagnosis of your condition. He’ll then help determine an effective treatment plan for you, keeping your individual needs and lifestyle in mind.
What happens during your sleep study depends on the type of test you choose to take. If you’d like, we can recommend a local sleep clinic to take a test with the help of physicians. They’ll make sure the test goes accordingly, and you’ll simply fall asleep at the clinic in a private room.
Dr. Doneskey offers home sleep studies for patients wanting a more comfortable and convenient alternative. If you opt for the at-home test, you’ll be able to sleep in your own bed and continue your daily routine without much interruption. After you’ve completed the test, you’ll return to our Bellevue office for an accurate diagnosis.
