What happens after your sleep study is completed?
Study results are evaluated
After you complete your study at American Sleep Medicine, LLC’s, your study will then be evaluated by a sleep technician. In addition to what they observed during your study, they will also look at what information the machines captured. They will look for things like Apneas, Hypopneas, or Respiratory Event Related Arousals (RERA). The information is then reviewed by our sleep physician, who will determine if you have a sleep disorder and prescribe a plan of care.
Results are communicated to you
Our physician or Clinical Coordinator will call you to either schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss the results, or to communicate the results to you over the phone. We will also hand deliver the study results to your referring physician or Primary Care Physician.
Your treatment or plan of care is prescribed
The results of your study may indicate that you have a sleep disorder which means you may need something beyond improving your Sleep Environment or Sleep Routine. This could be a prescription for medications, surgery, or therapy such as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). We will coordinate your therapy with a provider of your choice to ensure you begin to get a restful night sleep as soon as possible.

We will be in contact with you frequently as you adjust to the therapy and begin to experience improved quality of sleep.
