Sleep Study Number Five

I’m just finishing up packing for my overnight sleep study over at Piedmont Hospital Sleep Lab. This will be my fourth overnight sleep study since 2004, and fifth if you include my daytime multiple sleep latency nap test. I’m deciding on what comfortable, yet accessible pajamas I can wear so the sleep lab tech doesn’t see too much (yes, there are cameras in the room and someone watches you sleep all night. Almost voyeuristic). It’s time to figure out how to fix my sleep apnea and daytime hypersomnia. Is anyone interested in a silly photo narrative of what it’s like to be the patient in a sleep lab?

    How was it, did they turn up the heat for you? I’m sure when you get time you’ll let us all know…Because Inquiring Minds Want To Know.

    I really like those pictures you put up. Can I use them? It is a great description of what happens during the stay.

    I am curious as to what they used to keep the hair wires in. To take them out in the morning, did they have to use acetone or were they able to simply pull them out?

    Hope it went well.
