Sleep Disorders Lab
The Sleep Disorders Laboratory is located on the sixth floor of the Kidd wing of Kingston Health Sciences Centre's (KHSC) Kingston General Hospital (KGH) site and includes six private bedrooms.
Sleep studies are performed by a registered polysomnographic technologist (RPSGT).
To be seen in the Sleep Lab you will need to be referred by your primary care provider or family doctor. The referral form can be downloaded here and your referral will be prioritized by a sleep specialist. Typically, you will first meet with a doctor that specializes in sleep disorders at KHSC's Hotel Dieu Hospital site before being scheduled for an overnight sleep study in the Sleep Lab at the KGH site.
Information about your appointment will either be confirmed with you over the phone or mailed to your home by the Sleep Disorders office.
Appointments can be made for both overnight or daytime sleep studies. If your appointment is for an overnight study, you will be asked to arrive sometime between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. You will be able to leave the Sleep Lab between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. the next morning. Daytime sleep studies generally begin at 8 a.m.
Prior to some sleep tests or clinic appointments, you may be asked to keep a sleep diary for two weeks. Download the sleep diary.
