Sleep Studies Clinic (Private & Bulk Billed)

Dr Thompson is partnered with Genesis SleepCare to provide diagnostic polysomnographic (PSG) sleep studies at our sleep investigation units located at Pindara Private Hospital at Benowa and the John Flynn Hospital at Tugun.

We use only the gold standard in PSG, adhering to the guidelines prescribed by Medicare Australia, the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine in the performance of all of our sleep studies.

We cater for both insured and uninsured patients. We perform sleep studies for adults at all our clinics, and for children over the age of 4 years in our Brisbane clinics only. Qualified nursing and scientific staff monitor our patients for the duration of the overnight study, attending to their needs during the night.

Purpose of the Polysomnographic Test

PSG is a non-invasive test which records various biological processes that take place while you sleep. These include brainwave activity, breathing, muscle tone, limb movements, blood oxygen levels, and heart rhythm and rate.

Additionally, we can perform Transcutaneous CO2 monitoring for suspicion of CO2 retention, as well as 21 lead EEG PSG for suspected nocturnal epilepsy.
