On the night of your sleep study, please have your evening meal as usual and go directly to Mitcham Private Hospital (27 Doncaster East Road, Mitcham) at 7:00pm. Parking is available both at Mitcham Private Hospital and Sleep Centre.
After the admission, staff will direct you to the Mitcham Private Sleep Centre which is across the road. Our team will greet you and show you around the facility when you get there.
All studies are performed in private rooms, featuring comfortable beds, TVs and modern amenities to ensure the best possible sleep conditions. There are access ramps into the Sleep Centre for mobility impaired patients. Options for double beds are also available.
Once settled in your room, the staff member will apply various sensors used overnight to record sleep quality, breathing patterns, and body movement. This is a painless, non-invasive procedure. (approx. takes 45mins)
After you have been wired up, you are free to read in bed or watch TV until you are ready to sleep.
You will be woken around 6 am the following morning. Once the sensors are disconnected you are free to leave. There will be gel in your hair which can be washed off in the shower. There are showers at the centre, but you are safe to drive home for a shower if you prefer.
A light self-service breakfast is available in the morning and a light supper is available during your stay.
