An overnight sleep study with The SleepGP is an essential step in understanding fully what is happening during your sleep. From a SleepGP sleep study, we can tell if you have Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), or not – and if you do, how severe it is. We can also see what your sleeping position is, how loud you snore, any heart abnormalities – and if you have OSA, what type it is.
Not all sleep studies that are available in the market provide all that detail. The various Levels of Sleep Study are set out below. Therefore, you may need advice on the right sleep study for you, and at The SleepGP we are here for you if you want to discuss that.
If you want to get an idea initially whether you could have OSA, you might like to try the self-assessment tool included on this website. Remember it is indicative only, and you should consult your GP, or a SleepGP if in doubt.
Your GP can refer you to a SleepGP if there is one in your area. At your initial consultation with a SleepGP, you will be taken through various types of sleep studies and an appropriate level study will be arranged.
