All referrals are triaged based on the information provided and booked according to severity of symptoms.
All patients are booked for an appointment with a sleep specialist following a sleep study. Some patients may have a consultation prior to a sleep study to determine if a study is required.
Not all patients require a sleep study. Patients with Restless legs, insomnia or sleep related disturbances may have a consult first, prior to performing any overnight studies.
When a patient is noted to have a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea or narcolepsy etc., that may cause the patient to be drowsy while driving, and they report daytime sleepiness, our doctors are obligated to report them to the MTO.
The patient should contact our office ASAP and our team will help direct them with the next steps needed to assist them with their inquiry.
The sooner a patient is set up on CPAP prior to surgery the better. We offer an urgent pre-op service with a ten day turn-around time prior to surgery. If a patient requires CPAP prior to surgery and it is not possible to set the patient up soon enough, surgery may be cancelled by the anesthetist.
