Overview

 

Schedule your sleep study today 

Sleep is one of the most crucial parts of a healthy lifestyle. Despite this, only about 16% of Americans say that they don’t feel abnormally sleepy during an average week. 

You may be living with a sleep condition if you’re experiencing: 

  • Drowsiness during the day 
  • Frequent headaches 
  • Irregular sleep patterns 
  • Nights where you’re struggling to fall asleep 

If you’re dealing with any of these symptoms, you may need to schedule a sleep study at Bristol Regional Sleep Evaluation Center.

About your Bristol sleep center 

Bristol Regional Sleep Evaluation Center is here to help Sullivan County rest easy. All patient rooms are designed to feel like a home away from home. 

We currently have six beds available for onsite sleep examinations. 

Daytime sleep studies 

Our team is happy to accommodate patients who require a daytime sleep study.  

For those who work third shift or have abnormal sleep patterns, it’s important for our test to match your normal sleep routine in as many ways as possible. 

Pediatric sleep studies 

We do see pediatric patients at Bristol Regional Sleep Evaluation Center. 

The presence of a parent or guardian is required during a child’s sleep examination. We offer a separate room for the parent to stay in during pediatric sleep tests. 

What to expect during a sleep study 

Your treatment may include an overnight sleep study.  

Some sleep studies can be done on site at Bristol Regional Sleep Evaluation Center, while other sleep exams can be completed in your home.

How to prepare for your sleep exam 

Before your sleep evaluation, we do ask that you take a few extra steps to make sure that we’re able to collect the most useful information possible.  

  • Avoid drinking caffeine or taking naps on the day of the study. 
  • Don’t use hairspray, lotions or makeup, as these can make it difficult to apply the sensors that read your sleep habits. 

What to bring 

You can bring your own loose-fitting pajamas. You're also welcome to bring anything that will make you feel more comfortable - such as a laptop, book or magazine.

Also, be sure to bring:  

  • A list of your current medications
  • Photo ID
  • Insurance card

After your sleep study 

We always want to ensure that you are an active part of your treatment solution. 

After your sleep exam, one of our sleep specialists will reach out to you to discuss the findings of your test and suggest possible treatments to match your diagnosis. 

Hours of operation 

Our daytime hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

Our nighttime hours for sleep exams are Monday through Saturday, 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.
