What to Expect

When undergoing a sleep examination, patients will spend the night in the hospital but can resume their normal daily routine in the morning. The sleep technologists monitor biological functions, such as brain wave activity, eye movement, muscle tone, heart rhythm, and breathing via monitors placed on the head, chest, and legs. After a full night’s sleep is recorded, the data is presented to a physician for interpretation. 

The sleep lab is conveniently located in the medical/surgical wing at PCH and features modern rooms with amenities including:

42-inch TVs
Wi-Fi
Queen-size beds
Fans
Personal showers
Restrooms
