Sleep Study Nothing
36 yr old mom. Confirmed arrhythmia during sleep study. Nothing on holster monitor. Pulse will drop from 110 to 47 and pop back up around 100 feeling as though my heart was shocked back up to that level. Focalin stimulant for add. Any thoughts?
Arrythmia: What was the nature of the arrythmia noted on the sleep study? Apparently no abnormalities of heart rhythm occurred while the Holter monitor was worn. It's important to document heart activity when you're symptomatic and therefore more outpatient monitoring should be done. I suspect that you have bursts of supraventricular tachycardia or intermittent runs of extrasystoles which Focalin may cause ...Read more

Seroquel (quetiapine) can affect : I am not clear on what your question is. If you have sleep apnea, you should be using CPAP machine and not taking sleep medications.

Sometimes: It doesn't hurt at all. But some people feel odd sleeping in another bed and in a clinic room. I suggest that you bring your own - great pillow. If you have a blanket that you love to use - bring that too. Wear comfy jammies. Some sleep labs make the rooms look like regular bedrooms. ...Read more

Depends: upon the process at the place doing the sleep study. Although the results can probably be determined by the following day, these results should be interpreted by the ordering physician. You should ask the doctor who ordered the test when to expect results, or schedule an appointment with the doctor to discuss the results. ...Read more
Thousands: Sleep studies are anywhere from $2000-4000 dollars and may need to be repeated to get the right settings for a CPAP machine if it is found you have sleep apnea. It may be better to speak with a physician to look at other causes for fatigue or insomnia first, but you might have already done that and had this study recommended. Good luck. ...Read more

Need more info: Just to say "myoclonic index" is vague and uninterpretable unless we know which body part is under discussion (legs, neck, chin, hands/fingers). Also, is the index under discussion with arousals or not? Arousal events are considered to be more important than non-arousal events. So, just the number itself doesn't tell the whole story.
