Our team can handle every step of the process – from screening to testing to scoring – which means that you will be able to ensure your patients are taken care of without adding a greater workload for your staff.
Patient screening is essential for ensuring that a lab’s resources are used effectively. Along with the STOP-Bang questionnaire, we use the following:
You can be rest assured that our staff has plenty of experience helping patients get comfortable and go to sleep in a lab. We understand that sleeping in a new space can be uncomfortable, especially for children, so we take extra care to make pediatric patients feel at home.
There are several tests we can run throughout the night to get a deeper understanding of the child’s sleep: EKGs, EMGs, EEGs, and breathing tests are the most common.
Our tests typically run until 6 or 7 a.m. At this point, we will have all the data we need. This data is then scored and interpreted, ready to be discussed with the patient within two weeks.
