Once your referral has been received our team will reach out to you to confirm the details of your sleep study appointment.
At your appointment
We will introduce you to our program and complete a medical questionnaire. We will then explain how to fit the sleep study equipment. All necessary equipment and accessories will be provided for you to take home. The portable equipment will record your brain activity, cardiac activity, breathing, breathing effort, oxygen saturation, and body position. This information paints a clear picture of your sleep quality which our independent sleep physicians will review for evidence of sleep apnea.
The sleep study is a record of your night’s sleep, so it is important to maintain your usual routine as much as possible. Have your usual evening meal and beverages and take your medications, unless otherwise instructed by your doctor. You will place the sensors on your body as instructed at your appointment. Following your sleep study, you will pack and return the device to us as per your booking instructions.
Wearing some diagnostic equipment when you go to bed may be strange, most patients find that the testing process is not unduly uncomfortable and manage to fall asleep normally. At the time of your appointment, you will go home with the latest sleep testing equipment called the “Somfit Pro” which consists of the Somfit device, a disposable adhesive electrode and a phone app, thats it!
The Somfit app is used with the Somfit device to record your sleep overnight.
To get started, the Somfit app scans the QR code given to you by your healthcare provider. The Somfit app uses Bluetooth to connect to the Somfit device, and phone storage to securely store data during use. Once your overnight study has finished it uploads results to your healthcare provider.
The Somfit app requires access to your camera and Bluetooth to provide the best user experience. The camera is used to scan a QR code during device setup, while Bluetooth is necessary for communicating with the Somfit device. We understand that granting permissions can be a concern, but rest assured that your privacy and security are our top priorities. We only access the minimum necessary information to provide you with the best possible service.
