How to Prepare for a Sleep Study

Whether you are having an inpatient sleep study or home sleep study, there are some things you must do on the day of the study prepare:

  • Avoid napping
  • Avoid caffeine after noon
  • Take all medications as usual
  • Behave normally

If you are having an inpatient sleep study, you may be asked to bring sleep notes or your sleep diary, as well as pajamas and a toothbrush.

If you are having a home sleep study, you will need to visit the sleep center before the date of the study to pick up the monitoring equipment. When you pick up the equipment, a technician will show you how to use it properly so that you know what to do when you do the sleep study.
