The doctors who run this laboratory are specialists in sleep disorders, active members of the Australasian Sleep Association.
Your GP can arrange a sleep study directly, however it may well be appropriate to have a specialist consultation, particularly if:
- your daytime sleepiness is severe.
- you have had a fall asleep motor vehicle accident or been frightened by dozing while driving.
- you need to stay alert at work: with power tools or at a height.
- other medical problems exist, made worse by sleep apnoea: diabetes, difficult to treat hypertension or heart problems.
- your symptoms started without the usual issues such as significant weight gain or when a woman goes through the menopause.
