What is a sleep study?

A sleep study is a recording of your sleep, carried out by specialists, in order to look for the reason behind any sleep disturbances you may experience.

Sleep studies record breathing, chest movements, oxygen levels and body movements, all of which help the doctors at our clinic diagnose what disorder may be causing any sleep disturbance you may be experiencing.

How long is a consultation?

Consultations with a consultant doctor at our clinic usually last around 30 minutes.

What is CPAP (continuous airway pressure) therapy?

CPAP therapy is a therapy for sleep apnoea. It is a machine which, via a mask put over the face during sleep, blows gently into the airway, which keeps it open. This means the sleep disturbances in sleep apnoea, which are caused by your airway narrowing, are reduced, resulting in a better quality of sleep.

The diagram below shows a patient’s airways while sleeping with and without sleep apnoea.
