I Spent a Night in a Sleep Study — Here’s What Happened!

Visiting a sleep lab can feel like a scary or daunting experience. You’re spending the night away from home, you’re sleeping in a strange bed, and you are connected to a host of wires and electrodes. It’s natural to feel some anxiety. And how well are you ACTUALLY going to sleep?

Tom visited the Overlake Hospital Sleep Lab in Bellevue, Washington to get the scoop on what YOU can expect when you visit a sleep lab. He takes a polysomnography and sits with Overlake’s sleep technician, Donna, to discuss what they are measuring and looking for during your visit.
