In brief: Sometimes

Sometimes the disorder is not discovered early enough and a second study must be done.
Other sleep disorders require one type of a negative sleep study then another kind after that. The long and short of it is that there are different kinds of sleep disorders an different kinds of tests with different requirements.

Sometimes if the first test is suboptimal.
Usually one test is sufficient for diagnostic purposes.

In brief: Sleep Study

Usually one good sleep study with 6 to 8 hours of sleep on your back should be enough as long you slept well.
