Clinical Consultation service
Unless you are referred to sleep care clinic from another specialist, then the first step is to visit us for a clinical appointment. Our doctors will see you and advise you on the best way to address your sleep problem.
Appointments are usually on weekdays (Saturday to Wednesday) in the afternoon. Please contact us for booking.
Full sleep study (Polysomnography)
Polysomnography is extremely valuable for diagnosing and treating many sleep disorders, including neurologic disorders, movement disorders and breathing disorders at night.
It is completely non-invasive and safe. Sleep Care Clinic is equipped to be a comfortable place in addition to being a scientific facility. Patient rooms have normal beds and equipment is hidden away to make the room feel more natural.
A sleep study records several important physiologic variables during sleep such as brain waves (EEG), heart waves (ECG), air flow from the nose, respiration, snoring, muscle activity, blood oxygen levels. All sleep studies also include infra-red video camera monitoring.
Polysomnography at Sleep Care Clinic is also used to identify the spectrum of sleep disorders in children, including night terrors, nightmares, sleep walking (somnambulism), nocturnal epilepsy, pediatric obstructive sleep apnea and bed wetting (enuresis).
Patient rooms at Sleep Care Clinic have an additional bed for the parent or accompanying person during a sleep study.
Multiple sleep latency test (MSLT)
This is a special test used in the diagnosis of narcolepsy (irresistable sleep attacks). The test is done during the day and takes between 4-6 hours.
Maintainence of wakefulness test
This is a special test used in investigating daytime sleepiness. It tests the ability to maintain wakefullness during the day. The test is also done during the day and takes between 4-6 hours.
Once diagnosed with obstructive apnea, your doctor may suggest continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. This requires that you spend a night at the clinic where our staff will test the optimum dose of CPAP that suits you during your sleep. For more information on CPAP and sleep apnea, visit our patient resources section.
