What is a sleep study?

A sleep study is a test that measures how well you sleep and checks for sleep problems. For some sleep studies, you stay overnight in a sleep lab at a hospital or sleep centre.

In other cases, your doctor can give you a portable sleep monitor to use at home, so you don’t have to spend the night in the sleep lab. But you should use a portable monitor only if:

  • Your doctor thinks you have a condition that makes you stop breathing for short periods while you are asleep, called “sleep apnoea.”

  • You do not have other serious medical problems, such as heart disease or lung disease.
