What can you expect during a sleep study or polysomnogram (PSG)?

ANSWER

On the night of your sleep study, you'll be assigned to a private bedroom in a sleep center or hospital. Near the bedroom will be a central monitoring area, where technicians watch and check on you while you sleep.

You'll be hooked up to equipment that may look uncomfortable. However, most people fall asleep with little difficulty.
