make sure that you rule out sleep apnea (without oxygen) which will suddenly wake you up................so many people have that and don't even know it...there will be no way you'll get a good night's sleep.....if partner complains about your snoring and you have a sore throat among other symptoms and waking up in the middle of the night physicians can test you in a sleep lab and if indicated prescribe an oxygen tank and a mask.............I'm going to be tested when I come back this summer........I sleep one or two hours and then I'm awake........will fall asleep with the tv on, a towel over my eyes and then sleep another one to two hours.......not the most restful in the world.....

Yep, Debs, I am more than familiar with sleep apnea. Buck was diagnosed with it about 10 years ago and slept with a CPAP machine right after diagnosis. He was a different person after the diagnosis and treatment.

It's not as invasive as you might guess. The environment is much like a very comfortable motel/hotel room. They do their best to make you as comfortable as possible, very non-hospital/laboratory-like.

I don't know, but I suspect it isn't. However, I don't know where you are having your study done. Will it be in the U.S. or in K?

PM me your email address. I wrote a column a number of years ago about sleep apnea. You might find some of the information interesting/useful.
