Plan to arrive at the Utah Valley Sleep Center 10 minutes before* your scheduled appointment. The Sleep Center is located in the Physician’s Plaza, to the east of Utah Valley Hospital. Enter through the southwest door and take the elevator to the 5th floor. The sleep lab is to the right, suite 501.
* If you arrive 15 minutes later than your scheduled appointment time, please call Sleep Center and inform the technologist of an estimated time of arrival. The technologist reserves the right to reschedule the study for late arrivals.
Beginning the Sleep Study
After you are admitted, you will meet the sleep technician, who will explain the study to you and give you the opportunity to ask questions.
You will then change into your sleepwear and get ready for bed following your usual routine.
The sleep technician will then hook up sensors to various areas of your body. These sensors will be securely attached and the wires bundled so you may sleep in any position. If you need CPAP therapy during the night, the technician will assist in fitting you for a CPAP mask.
You will stay overnight, be awakened at 6 a.m., and should be ready to leave about 6:45 a.m. If you will be dropped off for your study, please be advised that the person who dropped you off may be contacted during the night if the study needs to be terminated for some reason.
