Our Sleep Disorders Center is designed with your convenience in mind. Please refer to the list below for everything you need to know parking to preparation for a sleep test.
Where is the Sleep Disorders Center? What time should I arrive for my test?
If you have an appointment for a sleep test, please arrive at 8:00 p.m. at our center, located at 1539 Atwood Avenue, Suite #302, in Johnston. Park in the back parking lot and use the rear entrance. There, you can proceed through two sets of doors and use the buzzer and intercom on the wall to inform the technician that you are here for a sleep study. After you are buzzed in, take the elevator to the third floor.
Visits are scheduled on regular intervals so if you need to cancel or anticipate being late, please call us at 401-351-2747.
What if I cannot keep my scheduled appointment?
Our technicians are scheduled to be there for specific appointments like yours. We typically remind you three days in advance of your appointment. If we don’t speak to you in person, please call back to confirm your appointment. If you need to cancel or reschedule, please let us know at least 48 hours prior to your study. You can reach the Sleep Lab at 401-351-2747.
What should I bring?
Bring necessary toiletry items (toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, brush, etc.) and a change of clothes (if desired) for the next day. Feel free to bring pillows or other objects that will help you to sleep more comfortably. You must bring pajamas, gowns, or night clothes (shorts, scrubs, tee shirts or sweats), a bathrobe, and socks or slippers. Also, bring something to read or work on during the non-sleep period.
How should I prepare for the test?
We recommend no naps and no caffeine during the day of your test. Try to eat your evening meal early, as some foods may affect your sleep. If you exercise on the day of the test, try to do it early in the day. Please do not use hair spray or hair gel on the day of the study.
Bring all of your usual medications and check with your physician if medication adjustments are needed for the test. If you are on oxygen at home, please notify the Sleep Lab prior to your study.
If you have any other special requirements, call the Sleep Lab before your study.
