Preparing For My
Overnight Visit

Before Your Study

Have your evening meal before you arrive, and if possible your usual amount of alcohol – DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE! You may bring alcohol to the sleep unit for consumption prior to the study if desired.

In the days before your sleep study, try to follow as near as possible your ‘normal’ sleeping schedule.

Remove acrylic nails and/or nail polish – to monitor your oxygen levels overnight a probe is attached to your finger tip which monitors the blood oxygen level in your nail bed (non-invasively).

  • Medicare card and private health fund membership details.
