Frequently asked questions

Talk to your local doctor in the first instance.  Your doctor will then write a referral for a sleep study if appropriate.

The gold standard for sleep testing is within a sleep laboratory with a sleep technician in attendance.  Generally this is the first option.  For patients that are suitable (depending on the  sleep condition) home testing may be an option.

You will be in a private room and well looked after by the sleep technician on the night. Most patients sleep well and usually better than they anticipated.

You will change into your night clothes privately and then the bands are placed over your clothing.  Electrodes on your scalp and face are applied when you are dressed in your pyjamas.

Yes, you can get out of bed and still attend the toilet - some patients need to attend the toilet on multiple occasions.

Genesis Sleep Care provides Sleep Specialist consulting at all locations.  Your review appointments will be either with a Sleep Specialist or with your referring doctor depending upon the requirements of yourself and the referring doctor.

Genesis Sleep Care has dedicated CPAP Clinics in Brisbane, Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, & Toowoomba. At other sites we have Agreements with local CPAP providers and we will supply you with details following your CPAP titration study.
