I had a sleep study done last night and what an ordeal that was!! I checked in at 7:30 and the technician started getting me ready. It took about 30 minutes to get all the monitoring electrodes in place: on my scalp, on my face, on my neck, chest, back, and two on each lower leg; a belt loosely around my chest and one around my waist; and last but not least, a face mask over my nose and mouth with a tube attached to a CPAP machine. Good night, sleep well…How on earth can anybody sleep with all that??—and don’t forget the camera staring down at you. I turned the lights off at 10pm and lay there sleepless until about 1 am, dozed/slept until 5am. I can’t imagine how that is reflective of a normal night but I suppose it is the best that can be done to get the information. I should get the results in about a week. The cost to me so far has been $45 co-pay to the sleep doc, $42 for the mask and tubing, and $289 for the sleep study itself (insurance paid 80% and I paid 20%).
