How can I arrange a sleep study?
Talk to your local doctor in the first instance. Your doctor will then write a referral for a sleep study if appropriate.
How will I know whether I have a sleep study in a hospital or at home?
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.
I may not sleep well in a hospital will this affect the result of my sleep study?
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.
Will I see a Sleep Specialist?
GenesisCare provides Sleep Specialist consulting at all our region. Your review appointments will be either with a Sleep Specialist or with your referring doctor depending upon the requirements of yourself and your referring doctor.
Our aim is to make treatment affordable for all patients. Visit our payments page to find our more.
From 1 November 2018, MBS items for sleep studies are changing to ensure patients with proven sleep disorders are better identified and more appropriately managed. The changes will help doctors refer patients for the most suitable test for them, depending on how likely they are to have a sleep disorder.
For patients who do not meet the requirements for a rebatable sleep study, GenesisCare’s physicians are able to facilitate further investigation into symptoms.
