They request clean hair with no product in it. Hence my carrot top hair-do.
The nurse connected 15 leads on my head, including three on my chin, which I HATED. Two more leads on my chest, one on my neck, and one on each leg. Then she added a pulse oxymeter to one finger and a nasal canula to monitor airflow.
Not everyone can rock this look, people.
It took me more than 3 hours to fall asleep, but when I did, they were able to get good information. Wake up was at 5 am this morning. The shower did not have shampoo and the goo in my hair wasn't as water soluble as the nurse said.
All in all, a sleep study wasn't as bad as I thought. I was sure that I wouldn't sleep at all, but I did for about 4 solid hours. The nurse was very nice and the bed was comfortable. I will find out if I have sleep apnea later this coming week.
The moral is if you snore and wake up tired, don't fear the sleep study. If I can do it, you can do it.
